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.

Green Crest Golf Club -- Jeckyl and Hyde Hiding Out In West Chester Ohio
Review by: Larry Redwine Located in West Chester, this courses fluff on number one followed by a doable if slightly uphill par 5 yields way to a couple of par fours that you might walk away from happy with bogey. The remaining five holes on the front nine may restore your confidence just long enough to face a 460 yard par four that seems to play 500 yards. As you negotiate the remainder of the course, moments of anxiety are hidden between seconds of grandeur. The greens are typically consistent, if slightly slower than most country club settings. Bunkers are few and shallow. Water only comes into play on six holes. Tree-lined fairways still afford the 12-18 handicap golfer a little room to slice and hook-but not wildly. A score to keep you believing there is a degree of hope for your game is possible if you survive 3, 4 and 11. The course is not one of the best sculpted courses in the area, but on a national scale, is in better shape than a lot of public courses you can find throughout the midwest. I've played courses in Missouri, Kentucky and Oklahoma, along with dried up patches in Florida and Texas that make it seem well pressed. Current staff members are pleasant and accomodating. The pro shop always has some deals and there are some decent food items in a limited restaurant. The nice thing is that you can almost always get out in the morning and early afternoon.
