Formerly known as Spring Hill Country Club, Albany Golf & Event Center dates back to 1959. Though the name may have changed, the classic design of the course hasn't. The golf course measures to just over 6,500 yards from the back tees. It may not be a lengthy layout but it's a fun round for beginners and advanced golfers alike, which is why it was chosen as the two-time host to the Oregon Open. The golf course was built on some of the country's most fertile land in a temperate location that allows year-round play. Strategically placed bunkers frame the greens and there are water hazards that come into play on a few holes. One of the most difficult holes, the par-3 17th, is a water hole. There is a lake that runs along the entire right side up to the green, which is also bordered by bunkers to the left.

    The course itself is good and well maintained although it is kind of flat and there is not a lot of variety in the holes. The fees are average for this area.

    This course just transitioned from private to public and the members make you feel like an unwanted house guest. We got bumped so many times so that members could keep their regular tee times it took us 5-1/2 hours to play 18 holes. We also had an incident at hole 10 after taking a break that almost escalated into a fist fight.

    My rating reflects my overall experience, not the conditions of the course

    This is one of my all-time favorite courses. Not long, but still quite challenging. A lot of trees and VERY well-maintained. The greens are some of the best around. A real gem and definitely worth the trip.
