The Springfield Country Club golf course opened for play in 1957. The course was designed by Sid Milligan. A group of approximately 20 neighbors bought some farmland in the Marcola valley area and built the Springfield Country Club. In the early days, on Sundays there was a "workday and potluck." All of the families would come out in the afternoon and do any work that needed to be done around the Clubhouse and the course. Afterward there would be a potluck and everybody brought favorite dishes to share. There was much talk about buying the farmland across the street to build another 9 holes, but not many wanted to take the financial risk. It was uncertain that golfers would come all the way out to play. Robert Muir Graves redesigned the course in 1980 when it expanded from 9 to 18 holes.
The Springfield Country Club golf course's front nine climbs gently into the Cascade foothills. The back nine meanders along the valley floor like the Mohawk River that visits 5 holes. At just over 6000 yards, the course is ideal for all levels of golfers. The rolling greens offer some tricky pin placements, and a few blind greens give members a bit of an edge over first-time guests.
Springfield Country Club plays to a par-72 and 6,468 yards. The course rating is 70.7 and the slope rating is 123

This course is good. Went there when it was public, but it has since gone private and the membership fees are high
