"Average"

9/21/20: Review by Jonny

I played this course on a Monday in September, it was sunny and about 70 degrees but a very strong & gusty wind, maybe 20 to 25 mph. I had never played this course before so that certainly impacted conditions of play and my experience overall. I would say, the front...

Description

The 6,906-yard par 72 Clyde Johnston-designed layout is located on a heavily wooded and hilly site just over the South Carolina border in Fort Mill. The course features 4 holes that flank Sugar Creek, affording players spectacular views and includes 13 holes that play across and along perennial streams that feed into the Catawba River. Each hole offers 5 tees for different skill levels. The greens were converted to MiniVerde Ultradwarf in 2010.

Notes

This course is part of the Leroy Springs & Co. collection of upstate SC golf courses near Charlotte -- including Fort Mill, Lancaster and Chester Golf Clubs as well.

B-Man's Take

I've only played this course a couple of times, but I need to get out here more often. It is a well-kept course with lots of challenge and several unique holes. Pretty straightforward layout, with elevation changes and rolling hills the most common features. Look for twilight times and discounts to keep it affordable as the rack rates are some of the highest in town. My favorite hole is #10, a short but picturesque par-4 with a lake on the left side and an elevated green guarded by 3 large bunkers. There are a handful of devilish holes, including the #1 handicap 428yd 7th hole. This long par 4 will give you a long approach to an elevated green guarded by a creek in front.

    "Great course"

    I have been reading for about 2 weeks about how good of a condition this course is in so today, I had to find out for myself. A 1230p tee time on a Tuesday with a clear blue sky and about 75 degrees, it was just perfect. The course is playing incredibly! The tee boxes, the fairways and the greens are all in excellent condition. I really like this course and the way it plays, you know when a course suits your eye and this is it fo me. There are some acute doglegs that challenge you to place your tee shot just so. Many holes will challenge you to place your second shot just so to approach the green. I think my favorite holes are all the Par 3's. All with elevated greens, green side bunkers and visually beautiful. The Staff here is fantastic! Dan the starter is a great guy who knows the course well and is willing to give you the local knowledge. There is a driving range, practice putt and chipping area as well. The carts are all clean and in good repair. All in all just a fantastic experience for a public course which I would highly recommend.

    "Great course"

    Springfield is in top summer condition, though an expectation at the price point. Greens are rolling smooth and fast. Four-hour round on a Saturday morning was a pleasant surprise.

    The hits are coming fast and furious now... all Leroy Springs golf courses have shut down effective today. That's Springfield, Fort Mill, Lancaster and Chester Golf Clubs.

    Statement from Leroy Springs:

    "Despite the precautions we have taken, many of our staff positions conduct transactions with the public which have been difficult to isolate. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to suspend operations at all four Springs Golf courses, effective the end of the day today (April 1, 2020). Maintenance operations will continue."

    "Great course"

    My first time back at Springfield in a while. I'm doing some scouting before updating my Charlotte Agenda Top 10 article in a few weeks. A quick COVID-19 update - I was able to pay over the phone so I just had to verbally check in at the pro shop, no touch required. The cups have all been turned upside down which makes them shallower and easier to pick out your ball without touching the flagstick. I was paired up with another group but allowed to have my own cart. There were no bunker rakes. As for the course itself, it was cart path only - though there were only a few spots on the whole course that were still wet. The greens were solid not spectacular -- quick, but not super smooth. It felt like the grain took over on shorter putts. Still good, but just not super nice like they will hopefully be soon. The fairways on the front 9 were a bit sparse with lots of poa annua patches. Oddly, the back 9 fairways were much greener and lush. The layout does feature some blind shots so hopefully you have a GPS or a veteran playing partner. Some of the tee shots are target golf plays rather than grip and rip. Lots of elevation changes and dropoffs. The course meanders through a very wooded neighborhood and there are a few small ponds and streams that come into play. Overall, it's a good test of golf.

    "Worth playing"

    Some might rate it average, but am giving them credit for the work being done. Issues - Most tee boxes have little if any grass. On one, we teed up just outside the designated teeing area, just to have some grass. They are, for the most part, well sanded so they are definitely working on them. The rough is fairly thin and had been aerated maybe not so recently. Again, they are aware of it, working on it and ask they you drive the carts in the fairways not the rough. Fairways and greens are in excellent shape, no complaints whatsoever. I guess they re-did the greens since the last time I played. They used to be so crazy fast that if your approach was above the hole you were screwed. Rolling very true now. Great practice area. One thing, and this is becoming a pet peeve of mine - Not a single red or yellow stake or line anywhere on the course.

The Divide closing for greens renovation this month

By The B-Man on 8/5/20

Great news for The Divide! The course was approved for a $350k greens renovation starting this month. The greens will be sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass, the same as Eagle Chase in Marshville (and those have been good year round). The work starts next week and the course...
