Both my fiancée and I had the day off, which is a rarity, and wanted to play mini golf. We found this place online and were impressed by the pictures that were posted and thought it would be fun. Let me be clear that this was one of the most neglected mini golf courses that I have ever been on. That includes the makeshift mini golf course that we built in Iraq with practically nothing. The overgrown and unkempt plant life blocked a lot of the course leaving little option to go left or right if split by an obstacle. The astroturf was faded, worn and crusty, almost appearing that someone took a blowtorch to sections of it. To make matters worse, the cost was really steep at $20 for the two of us. We hurried through the course, as to at least pretend we were getting some enjoyment out of the course and hopped in our vehicle as quickly as possible. I wanted to ask for a refund and complain about the course, but I didnt think I would be able to clearly convey my frustrations without raising my voice and swearing at the absurdity of the "experience" we just paid for. We were so unsatisfied, that instead of going home, we drove well out of our way to Funplex on Rt 38 and paid $12.50 for a round of fun on a well kept, challenging course. We should have went to Funplex in the first place. Needless to say, I will never be returning to Springfield Golf Center. Their mini golf course either needs substantial renovation or to be shut down for good.
I am a 20-year patron of this course. Its around the corner from my house and I have many friends that I have met here over the years--dozens. However, this past Sunday, September 20th, I was disrespected and insulted beyond belief and will no longer spend money here. I will not go into the tone and content of the words spoken to me by pro-shop guy, but I was lied to about price and services and literally laughed at and patronized as I paid money and walked out to walk the course (they refused to give me cart due to "darkness". It was 4pm...both groups behind me got carts). Its sad. This is the best value around for golf and though I have spent thousands of dollars here since 1995, the infraction is unforgiveable. Im a single-handicapped golfer who played this course twice a week, or more and I taking my business to Ramblewood, Rancocas, Deerwood and Hanover from now on. In the end, I finished walking the course in 2.5 hours...long before it got dark, and left at least four groups with carts out there behind me. Im not a person who likes confrontation. I let my wallet do the talking.
15$ to walk 9 holes of this dog track is a joke of a rate, their winter rates should be their regular in season rates, for a short course it gets tons of play, I felt like I was only person there under 55 years of age, old hackers paradise I guess, was going to just use driving range but no grass for that; just mats, the course feels like a slightly larger chip and putt, didnt play a full 9 cause pace of play was so brutal, I was reprimanded for hustling (fast walking) to first tee just to get out there and keep it moving, the usgas "while were young" marketing promotions didnt reach these guys, their after 6pm rates are reasonable but with the pace there; you wont get enough holes in...maybe in the winter its probably an ok practice track, conditions overall were of (tee boxes no grass, but greens in decent shape) good for beginners but poor value track, was hoping as a solo to walk 9 holes in about 1.5 hours short course, but way too crowded, ok for some I guess...ok little practice track if you can find a time when a lot of people arent there

NEVER AGAIN. DONT GOLF HERE. The greens are kept up horribly. The greens fees are through the roof, for the quality thats provided. The sad part is I was ok with this but the staff, complete jerks and ive never made a formal complaint with any company before but this is just UNFORGIVABLE. The attendant behind the counter accused me of playing more than 18 holes, called me a LIAR and seemingly expected me to pay extra because I took longer than 4 hours to play 18 holes (mind you I stopped in to get lunch after the 9th hole which took 45 mins and he was standing 15 feet from me as well as let people pass me). DONT GOLF HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE CALLED NAMES. I am APPALLED and the owner should be ashamed of this establishment! Im telling everyone I know and posting this at every website I can find, WHAT A GREAT WAY TO SPEND MY 2011 LABOR DAY!
Feel this is a good all around beginners golf course. Flat and fairly open although some trees do overhang some fairways making for slightly challenging shots. Hadnt played here in a number of years and the conditions have significantly improved. Fairways and greens were in good shape. Only thing that had me lower the rating slightly was that the greens had a lot of ball marks, which really isnt managements fault but lazy clientele that dont understand golf etiquette, and tee boxes that were so hard and dry that you almost needed a hammer to tee up your ball. Those two items aside, we had an enjoyable 9 holes and my daughter and I will definitely be back to play more golf at Springfield.
I played here with 3 other people. The course itself was great, well kept and challenging but also good for a beginner like myself. My problem lies in the staff. There was 4 of us playing and we took our time and let a few doubles and single players go ahead of us so we didnt have to rush. Total time for 18 holes was almost 5 hours, and upon returning our carts, the guy questioned what took us so long and implied that we had played more than the 18 holes we paid for. Also, if you enjoy having a few beers on the course (or even inside at the bar for that matter) you have to fill out some form and wait 72 hours to get a "bar card" There is no mention of this on their website.
I dont get where the negative reviews come from. The mini-golf course is a bit beat, but thats not the point of this place. Its a good local and affordable golf course. The staff is very nice and accomodating. The course was very well kept. The fairways were groomed, the sandtraps were nice and groomed, and the greens were in excellent shape. Most consistent greens Ive seen in a year and a half aside from a $70-100 course. Its a nice flat course, so its great to walk! Get some exercise in while playing. Ill definitely be back. Definitely worth giving it a shot for a decent price of $30 (+$15 for cart which is a bit steep though).
I love playing at Springfield I always get treated like family there. The owner is a great guy always friendly the course is fun and open. Its a public course sometimes you get stuck behind slow people or beginners but I spent almost every day there last summer while I was learning never had a bad day. If you want affordable golf on a nice 18 hole course this is your place. Really great people.
