Course Reviews


Springfield gets a lot of play because there aren't too many courses nearby, however it's simply just an average to below average course for the price. It's maintained to o.k standards, but lacks a 2nd cut when approaching most greens. To make it worse the greens are lightning quick which would typically be a good thing but not here. When your 5 feet from the green and flag you virtually have a chip shot but since you are chipping from the rough you can't put any spin on the ball and thus your best chip shot will run well by the hole. It would be better to over hit every hole and chip onto the green where you have more green to play with. Definately can't flag hunt because if your two feet short or two feet long and end up just off the green its like adding a stroke due to your upcoming uncontrolable chip. The course is extremely hilly which makes for some unique nice looking holes, not a course to walk for sure. Also call ahead to get the correct rate as they might try to change the price when you get there. Clarify that you are not a resident of the county. Fortunately I had the persons name I talked to, but otherwise I would have been charged $16 more than originally quoted. It's always packed in the summer and hard to get a tee time which is why I waited till November to play. The staff isn't very friendly, I guess because they know they have the business anyway. They have logo balls, a nice plus for the collector like myself. However, when they charge and act like they are running Pebble Beach, when they definately are not, I will be playing elsewhere. Overall rating B-.

I have played this course several times in the past few years and I will say the club is trying to improve. The conditions are getting better and it offers a few very tough holes. If you're looking for a scenic course go somewhere else but if you want to play a decent round of golf near Philadelphia, this place will do the trick. See my full review at www.wamgolf.com

I'm not a terribly good golfer. I've played the course three times and I've been less than impressed. The area is not really that scenic. There were some deer wandering around, which was a nice distraction, but otherwise you get a view of the giant radio tower, a bunch of houses in a relatively new development bordering the course, the Springfield mall (ooh ahh), and on the ninth a wonderful view of Route 320. It lends to just how boring this area can be. The pro shop is much better outfitted than Paxon Hollow, but the course isn't nearly as fun as Paxon Hollow. If they could reverse situations I'd be thrilled to go play at Paxon Hollow and patronize their pro shop all the same. Really I'd rather play Paxon Hollow any day over Springfield regardless of the pro shop. They're friendlier, better maintained, and have gas carts, which I prefer when I'm not in the mood to walk. Springfield has one advantage, and that is it's cheaper at twilight to walk. There's only a $3 difference though. Just go play Paxon Hollow if you can't afford somewhere like the Golf Course at Glen Mills (which I cannot).

The course is in great condition, fairways and greens are stellar and the rough is well maintained. I played this past weekend for the 3rd time. The greens were being aerated but we were told by the staff and given a solid discount for the round. While this course is very nice you will not find much of a challenge here. The course is open and more forgiving than a priest. So great for beginners, fun for the intermediate player but lacking for the seasoned vet*. One last thing I'd like to comment on at Springfield and that is fairway divots. PLEASE REPLACE YOUR DIVOTS. You are provided 2 dispensers with every cart and you can have them refilled at the turn. Take a minute to take care of the course, everyone playing behind you will appreciate it.(*I assume since I'm not one and don't know any).

I played the last 2 Sundays. The staff is very friendly.
The course is in very good shape. Greens a little slow but hold all shots and run very smooth. A little short but don't stray off the fairway. Paid $53 on Sunday.

This isn't a bad course at all. The staff is nice and friendly, the Greens are in good shape. Three our of four stars. The Green's Fee's shouldn't be 60 in the summer though, $50 tops.

Alright now i know this is no rolling green but it is still a lot better than many of these people have rated it. I live about 10 minutes away and i golf here about twice a week and never have i paid $60. I went there yesterday and paid $140 for four people with carts. As for the course itself the grass isn't replaced by dirt. It's a mix you lay down, after putting a divit in the ground, so that the grass grows back quicker. The holes are challenging and also good for a beginner. As for the staff...they've been nothing but nice. I guess some people just weren't having a good day on the course and decided to write a sub par review.

Dont know why some reviews are so bad,greens were in good condition,course was challenging but not to difficult and reasonably priced. will definitely go back

Do not play here. Extremely overpriced, and not well kept. Fairways and greens are a disgrace, not to mention how extremely ignorant and rude the staff was. No way its worth 60 bucks. go to paxon for 50 for a good deal.

Not as bad as the people below make out.

I wasn't sure if I went to play golf or bet on dog races. The course was in horrid shape. It would have been nice to be told that the greens were being aerated, that the grass on many of the fairways was replaced with dirt when making a tee time, or even before teeing off...I wouldn't be so harsh if the staff at least pretended to be nice.

This is the worst course I have ever played. I would rather stay home and stick a hot poker in my eye then play this course ever again. The green were like playing on a plinko board and the fairways were like hitting off the parking lot. This course should be closed.

Great place to go for food or drink (a lot of money poured into clubhouse & resteraunt). Terrible place for golf! Greens are horrible (year after year), overpriced for the layout (to pay for resteraunt & clubhouse??). Live only 5 minutes away and still not worth the trip. Better off going up the road to Paxson Hollow. Real toilet bowl of a course

This course is way over priced. I paid $36 to ride on a Friday afternoon with the Tee Time Golf Pass and felt that I still over paid. Very short and poor maintenance. Overall the layout is not bad, except for the very short par 5's. I would not recommend and will not go back.

They rip you off by being the only course in the area, your better off going up to reading to pay less and better courses.
