Spring Lake Country Club
The course is almost like playing on a NON grass course.
Review for Springlake Golf course located in York SC. Three of the holes have a "no cart" advisory because there is no grass growing on the fairways. There were more than three holes with no grass on the fairways. I was told that somehow they over sprayed the course and the grass died. If you enjoy hitting your golf shots off of dirt then this course is for you. When I arrived at the course there were two other golfers there. We asked if since there was no one else on the course could we be allowed to start earlier than our tee time, we were told no, since we had booked a tee time we had to tee off at that time. We were eventually allowed to tee off 4 minutes earlier. For the entire round, there were probably 10 other golfers on the course. Had I known the condition of the course I would NOT have booked a tee time. This course is to be avoided because of the condition of the fairway playing conditions.

Washed out, no grass mostly dirt in fairways.
Unfortunately the course seems to be suffering from a lack of resources. The fairways were washed out which I would be ok with this time of year but the problem is that there is little to no grass. I love this course, the layout is challenging and the green slopes are some of the best around, and for the record any money spent on the course has gone to preserving the greens, and I can overlook a lot of sins and blemishes but this was too much. I wish them the best of luck.

The fairways were killed at the end of last season. Should have a note on golfnow stating that the course is in terrible shape and that there was not much grass mostly dirt for fairways. Why do you not post adverse conditions like this? Its not like its aerification (which you do post) but that the fairways will not be playable for at least a year.

This was the worst golf experience I have evr had! Tee boxes needed attention. Fairways had large swaths of 30-40 yards with NO grass at all, just dirt. They didn't even bother to blow the leaves off the fairways resulting in alots of time looking for balls IN THE FAIRWAY!. Guy at the front desk had the nerve to say it was a 90 degree rule day. REALLY?

Nice layout and greens
Nice day and the course greens were in good shape. Course needs cart path paving and repaving. Terrain is washed out and rugged on and around fairways. Overpriced for conditions.

needs much work mainly on fairways
fairways are bare because of weed killing. greens are very slow . well below average overall

Nice course, but the fairways are in need of work.
The value for price to play is great, but the fairways are in need of extensive work. Too many bare patches and the ground is extremely hard. I nearly broke my wrist on the hard , compacted, bare fairways. I won't play there again until the fairways are repaired.

I heard a lot of great things about this course. I was surprised to see it in such bad shape after other friends talked so highly about this course. It's bad when you have to "FIND" grass to hit out of the fairway.. The greens were fair, no crab grass or dirt spots..
