I think a good way to describe Spring Valley is a 'hidden gem' in the sand belt. Played here in December and again in January and both times have come away with a sense of achievement for taming a difficult, well-designed course. Lush fairways, fast greens and perfectly placed bunkers combine to challenge all levels of golfer.
The little par three 10th is entertaining and the bunkers seem to attract any wayward ball. The par four 16th is a great risk reward hole, you can attempt to carry the bunkers a leave a short iron in, but anything left or right will be punished.
