Comments:The first thing I noticed about Spring Creek, a nine hole course in Salem, was the hospitality. Everyone I met was super friendly and took a lot of pride in their course. The Superintendent, Brad Blackwell, picked me up on the first tee and gave me an overview of the course and drove me around the course. The course is beautiful, is in great shape and was a lot of fun to play. The course wasn’t even officially open when I arrived at 10 am but there were many golfers on the course. The winter hours, as posted on the door, are 3 to 8 pm. I can’t figure out why it is open after 5 pm, when it turns dark. I can imagine (restaurant, gin, poker, etc.) but I need to go back to: 1) play the course again and 2) see what happens after 5 pm. If you are ever 20 miles south of Rolla make sure you leave a couple of hours to play Spring Creek. For pictures of the course go to: www.facebook.com/mogolftour
