Featured Golf Course Review:
Springvale Golf Club -- A diamond still a little rough
Review by: Golf Nut Springvale is a course that has been in a transition stage for what seems like forever. Going from a family owned to a now city run course has taken time but has proven to be worth the wait. Improvements on the course layout, irrigation and drainage systems as well as adding an all new clubhouse make for a very pleasurable golfing experience. The practice range, which butts up against the backyard of a privately own home, is okay as long as you planned to practice your short irons (7 through wedge). The putting green is adequate. The actual course is an older design, i.e. meaning they managed to fit a 18 hole course on a 14 hole layout, but it has been spruced up a bit in recent years. A note of advise for low handicap golfers, play it from the tips to have the most fun. There are several Par 4 holes located on the course that can easily be hit in 1. The Par 5, 515 yard 11th hole dubbed "The Monster" can be tamed with a good drive and a decent middle iron. The 16th hole significantly challenging hole on the course if you're not prone to hit the ball straight but otherwise, keeping a decent drive in play should produce high 60's low 70's score pretty much every time.

Castle Shannon Golf Course -- A course to respect.
Review by: Gary Posey Castle Shannon is a great Golf Course, one of the finest layouts I have ever played in my 49 years of playing Golf. It requires a high skill level to break 80. You must stay in the fairway and keep the ball on level ground. The course plays long, much more then the 6896 the card shows. The biggest requirement is ball position on the greens. You must be below the hole or the chance of three or even four putting is quite high. Beside being a fun course, the scenery is just beautiful. The third hole called "The Gauntlet" is as pretty a hole as I have every played. From the top of the hill it looks to be 750 yards instead of 583. You will really enjoy this course and want to play again. I certainly cannot wait to play this course again.
