Course Info

Springfield is a 72 par 18 hole course.
Opened in 1957 Sid Milligan was the course architect.
The course has a Reciprocal guest policy.
Club Type: Private.
In 1957 a group of approximately 20 neighbors bought some farmland in the Marcola valley area and built the Springfield Golf Club. It was a six-hole course beginning at the current number 14 hole. Once you finished hole number three (the current number 16 hole), you had to walk all the way down to the large Douglas fir tree on the current number 11 to play the fourth hole. There were only three or four used carts available for rental at that time. Eventually the last three holes were built by members to make it a complete nine-hole course.
The late Palmer Pitkin was one of the original 40-some members. He and his family and friends built hole 17. His entire family worked together, including his two young boys, who helped by carrying buckets of rocks to the riverbank.
Volunteers did almost all of the work at the club. Palmer and two other ladies volunteered to run the pro shop, which was a converted farmhouse. The farmhouse was dated by the original plumbing, including a classic top-tank toilet. The roof was so old that every time it rained, which can be often here in the Marcola valley, they had to set pots and buckets out to catch the water. Palmer continued his work and dedication to Springfield Golf Club, working in a variety of capacities until he passed away in July of 2006.
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.

An additional nine holes of golf that roll into the scenic Morcola hills and through majestic trees and beautiful water features, along with an expansive 10,000 square-foot clubhouse, were added. The championship course, full-service Pro Shop, and clubhouse are one of the finest of its kind in Oregon.
Springfield Golf Club is still owned by its members and is a non-profit organization. Much of the same family feel from the birth of the course is still with it today. Members have a pride of ownership when it comes to the course and that pride is felt as you walk along the pristine fairways and lush greens. The back nine holes wind around the Mohawk River. One can often find deer wandering to the river or an osprey circling overhead.
