Spring Hill’s course was designed with narrow fairways that wind through woodland with small sand traps strategically placed to test the golfers control off the tees and through the fairways. The greens are purposefully small to require pinpoint accuracy in the approach game and their exceptional surface will challenge even the most seasoned putter. Ray Jensen was also the owner of Southern Turf Nurseries and was at the forefront of turf development, having built and seeded courses not only in the U.S. but also in Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Japan. At Spring Hill he created the first 18 hole course to be completely seeded, both fairways and greens with the best grasses available at the time. These grasses came to be known as the Dwarf mutant Tifton 419 and 328 strains.
Spring Hill Country Club was officially formed out of the old “Tifton Country Club” in 1965. The name originated from the Murrow Springs and the fact that the clubhouse was built on the highest point in Tifton.
