Spencer T. Olin Learning Center - 9 Hole Walking Course
Where golf is a game for everyone......

Spencer T. Olin Golf Course welcomes new players to this wonderful game.  A game that holds a life-time of enjoyment, friendship, and memories for those who choose to play.  Golf teaches a variety of things from athletic skills, patience, discipline, and personal communication skills.  Most importantly, the game provides a built-in-code of ethics to live by both on and off the course.  Many professional and amateur golfers, especially those who started at an early age, can attest to the positive aspects in their lives to what they have learned throughout their childhood on the golf course.

The Spencer T. Olin Learning Center
A 9-hole walking course features seven par 3's, one par 4, and one par 5 - totaling 1,795 yards.  Length of holes range from 75 yards to 407 yards from the forward tees and 130 yards to 518 yards from the back tees.  The average length of our seven par 3's is 121 yards from the middle tees.  The layout of the course and it's non-intimidating environment makes it the perfect place to learn the game of golf, or to hone your game as if you are a "veteran" of the links.

This course has many of the features our championship course has, such as sand traps, Zoysia fairways and approaches, Bentgrass greens, and Bluerye Fescue rough.  It also features a practice puting green.  One of the best features of the course if that it is a walking course.  What better way to learn and appreciate the game of golf than by walking?

Playing at the Spencer T. Olin Learning Center 9-hole walking course averages 1 hour and 45 minutes or less.
