Shorter course with a great layout. Lots of interesting holes that make you think about your tee shot instead of just taking driver on every hole. They've cleared out some trees and bushes recently, as well as improving some of the greens. Definitely recommend checking this course out for a fun round!

The pace of play was very slow. 5 hrs. Just brutally slow. Waiting on every hole. Clowns in front of us waiting for the group in front of them to reach the green before teeing off and then hit the ball 100 hundred yards. No Marshall to move them along. Will try and stay away from here. I recommend this course if you have a lot of time and a lot of patience. Good luck.

Was not aware that the greens were aerated. The course did not notify Golf Now of this situation. Impossible to putt without a hole changing the direction of the golf ball. Very frustrating. Otherwise course is in good shape .

I’ve been playing Sprain for a couple of years, and it’s a fun course. Staff are great! The fairways are still beaten up from the winter, but it’s early in the season. Ditto for the greens, which need aerating and rolling. Some are still very slick and bumpy. My only complaint about the course is the tee boxes on the par four 18th hole, the number one handicap hole. The tees are way too long., especially for folks not playing from the tips. The hole should either be a par 5 or the tee boxes moved up. This contrasts with the tee boxes on the other 17, which are fair.

While short, Sprain Lake is plenty challenging.

More often than not, the round will be closer to 6 hours, 5 being the minimum.

Someone call, write, email or fax me if it’ gets quicker otherwise it’s Just too slow.

Decent course, a couple holes with water and only two par 5’s with some long par 4’s. Played on a beautiful day but the pace was slow and we got backed up a couple times sadly. Very good value for the price though and would play here again. The greens had divets and leaves/pollen so it was tough to judge it. However, good views with the water right there and would definetly play here againb

The course was in great shape as always. The pace of play was terrible. Two foursomes of walkers in front of us. Asked to play the front 9 again and were allowed too. Finished close to an hour quicker than if we had played the back 9.
