Under New Management - and That's a good thing!

Played here 4-24-07, first time in a few years. Course was BADLY neglected by prior management: now being run by Heritage Hills Golf Resort, which is only a few miles away. They have their work cut out for them, as every part of the layout needs serious work. Tee boxes are barren, fairways thin, bunkers nearly all under repair (we played 'em all as GUR), and greens are just awful. However, the layout and design are superb: course is pretty wide open, but there is a lot of elevation change, some water, and very few flat lies. Fairways undulate, lots of moguls, lots of fairway bunkers, and greens are medium large and well contoured. Clubhouse is a very nice structure, but almost empty as the new folks take hold. Staffer there today was very pleasant, and encouraged our return. Also got a $25 green fee, which included a sleeve of Callaway HX balls, so the investment was reasonable. Hope that HH will get this club back into the shape it deserves. Recommend you call ahead and check the status before heading out.

a fabulous course to play. high wispy waste areas and high rough and mounds, make it difficult. fairways and greens were in mint condition. tee boxes were in fine shape. all bunkers were in fine shape except for the 18th green surrounding bunkers, which contained stones. this is surprising, since it's right in front of the clubhouse. beautiful clubhouse. the short par 4's nos 4, 6, and 17, which were under 300 yds, had their own version of golfer's hell- with undulating and sloping greens, and surrounding hazards.
a fair test of golf, in which I used every club. why pay an outlandish price at its sister course, heritage hills, just to look at wooden statues, when you can play a more challenging, and spacious course. some of heritage hills fairways are adjacent. here you must really pull or slice.
Wistfully this course will continue to exist, and provide golfers of all abilities an enjoyable round, and refreshing and pleasant atmosphere to relax at bogey macaw's restaurant.
highly recommend it. The only detriment is the same price walk or ride. I walked it today. It's comparable to pilgrim's oak in walkability.

When this course is maintained it is one of the best and more interesting courses in PA. It is a shot makers course for sure with much risk reward. However, the bunkers have not been fully restored, and in 08 missed fairways could mean lost balls making it very difficult. I play for the layout alone. Give this course proper attention and a good appropriate management/marketing plan and it can be very close to a five star course. A couple par 3's can be challenging with a miss hit, but would recommend adding another 15-20 yards to each. Great course non the less but in need of an owner who actually is appreciative of golf.

Poor service, charged us more for a threesome than a foursome would have paid (they said this encourages more people to play there. just means I'll just take my business elsewhere when I only have three people in the group).

No drinking water on the course and we saw the beverage cart once, greens and tees in terrible shape, no directional signs, grass not cut...the list goes on.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY! You're better off at Briarwood or Honey Run or pretty much any other York area course.

Played here 4 times in past month. Love the layout, but it can be tiring walking up and down the hills. Lack of drinking water on course could be a big problem during hot weather. Traps still needs work. Overall GREAT value for the area.

Unfortunately they are letting the course run down again. The greens are terrible and the tee box’s are poorly maintained. And it’s not uncommon to get a cart that runs out of steam after a few holes. One more thing, bring an extra dozen balls with you because if you don’t hit the fairway you will never find your ball. I guess they never heard of weed killer…

We played this course today for the first time. Found the course to be challenging and in good condition. Fairways and greens were well manicured. The clubhouse was also very nice. Our only complaint was we played on a Saturday in 90 degree weather and we found there was no water on any of the holes. Also, we did not see the cart girl one time during all 18 holes. Also, there was not one trash can on the entire course. Other than not having water we thoroughly enjoyed our round and will go back again.

Played here on 29 May 2008; This is a great course !!....and at a great price with a discount book! Many improvements have been made under the new ownership. Tees,Fairways and Greens were all in decent shape. Some of the rough is still pretty nasty but thats why they call it rough huh?? This course seems to play longer than the card says and stray shots can be very costly so you gotta keep it in the Fairway! The view overlooking the golf course is nothing short of beautiful and somewhat breathtaking. The only real complaint we had in our groups was "DIRECTIONAL SIGNS" TO THE NEXT TEE." On a busy day, I'm sure that groups will get lost causing even more "slow play" to any already existing because of people taking the wrong cartpath. It would be helpful to paint arrows on the cart path or maybe small signs pointing the way toward the next tee. Overall, this course is DEFINITELY worth playing. We had a great time and it will be our pleasure to "spread the word" that SPRINGWOOD IS BACK."

PLay it!!!
They are turning this course around and if you come to York and don't play it you are missing out. They are offering great deals while they are redoing it.

Bear with the bunkers and tee boxes, I'm sure they are going to only improve.

I paid a twighlight fee of $27 which I thought was somewhat steep...would pay it again in a heartbeat! This was a worthwhile course and having golfed over 70 courses, this is one of my favorites! The course was fairly empty at my 4:00 tee-time. Springwood is very up and down, steep at times, but loved every hole (except #11 with a narrow landing area). Loved all the "bumps" in the rough...those little hills that I left alone on my round. There is enough challenge to every hole to make you calculate what you're doing. You can't always "bomb" your driver on every hole either. Extremely scenic course except for the power line that comes into view a bit. I wonder what the cost of this course will be once a number of traps are filled back up with sand. Evidence of repair was everywhere here...not a course quite up to snuff yet, but once it is, it will be a must-do on anyone's itinerary! I easily overlooked the maintenance problems and had a very enjoyable couple of hours here!

Best public course in the county

Outstanding layout - some great risk-reward short par 4's - and wonderful scenery. Plenty of elevation changes and a friendly, accomodating staff.

one of the best in pa

this is one of the best courses i've ever played that nobody has heard about, i played it in it's second year and i still can't believe it has not found it to any top 100 rankings. you drive up and can see the whole course, it looks like a glorius ski slope. breathtaking vistas throughout are only topped by the staff, everybody is there to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. one of the best days i have ever had on the links, and i played lousy, lots of fun.
