Silver Spring Falls Course: Risk, and Reward
I never gave Silver Spring Country Club’s Falls course much credit, but playing there today was a blast.
As the little brother to their Island course, the Falls is short as heck – 5,564 yards from the men’s tees. It is the less-played of the two courses at Silver Springs, and is always inexpensive – we paid $11.50 apiece in early November, and finished in two hours.
The Falls course has a plethora of short par fours that are awesome to tee off on. In fact, hole number three may crack the upcoming list of my favorite par fours in the state. Every other time I have played this course, I laid up on holes like three. At 290 yards downhill to an island-like green, though, it turned out to be quite reachable…
Holes one, three, four, six and seventeen are all reachable par fours (under 300 yards). While it may not look tremendously difficult on a scorecard, it does make for some fun risk/reward holes!
