Originally built in 1930, Spring Hill Golf Course spans 6,700 yards of kempt fairways cleaved into a verdant expanse of rolling terrain. The par 72 course snakes through the charming Spring Hill College campus, challenging golfers with towering tree lines, subtle elevation changes, and rogue professors interrogating passersby about the lost history of the mashie niblick. Prepare for the championship course’s manifold hazards with 10 one-hour small-group lessons from one of the course’s resident aces, who helps pupils master the game’s essential techniques and better understand life from a flagstick’s perspective. Classes never exceed 10 students in size, ensuring that each student’s swing receives ample attention and corrective treatment. Aspiring aces also get 10 18-hole rounds, affording them opportunities to play the course from all four sets of tees. Ten buckets of driving-range balls further facilitate game-honing devotion, allowing players to warm up before each round and to continue to master concepts introduced during clinics.

Spring Hill Golf Course
Originally built in 1930, Spring Hill Golf Course spans 6,665 yards of kempt fairways lined by mature trees and interspersed water hazards. The par 72 course snakes through the charming Spring Hill College campus, challenging golfers with subtle elevation changes, six ponds, and rogue professors interrogating passersby about the lost history of the mashie niblick.
