I have started to read a lot about Langford and Moreau, but I had yet to experience one of their courses firsthand. On a recent trip to Eagle Springs Golf Resort, I decided to make a stop at Spring Valley Country Club in Salem, Wisconsin on my way back home to Chicago.

Like Eagle Springs, Spring Valley is one of the older public tracks in Wisconsin.  It opened in 1923 and features the same architects who designed Lawsonia Links in Green Lake. The course is bunkerless, but it’s elevated green provide challenges on its approach shots. Because of it’s age, I decided to share these photos in black and white of the charming, old design.
