Welcome to the website for the Spencer Municipal Golf Course. Please take the time to enter your email
address if you wish to receive event notices or seasonal specials. Your email address will only be used by our
facility as a way to better serve you the public.

Visit the rate page, of our website, to see fees for the 2023 golf season.  We will once again have an all day junior green fee rate of $10 that allows any junior golfer, through high school age, to play unlimited golf on that particular day.  We are currently offering our junior pass at a discounted rate of $75.00.  This junior rate is available for youth golfers that are full time students through the age of 23.  Our goal is to encourage our younger generation to experience the wonderful game of golf at an affordable price.

We also offer our yellow forward tees for golfers that average a tee shot of 100 yards or less.  These tees allow you to play the golf course in a more enjoyable yardage without changing the layout of the golf course.  This has been a very popular addition the past couple of seasons.  We recently added the green course which is a combination of red and yellow tees.  There are six different tee options for golfers of all ages and skill levels.  Are main priority is for you to enjoy your round of golf!

We also offer young adult season passes for as low as $375.  If multiple payments are necessary we offer automatic bank withdrawal which can be completed online.  Call Brian @ 712-260-5370 for more information.

Your 2023 season pass will provide you with an added bonus.  You will receive reciprocating golf with Cherokee Country Club (712-225-4687), Little Sioux Golf (712-283-2162), Silver Lake Country Club (712-832-3213), Meadowbrook Golf (712-728-2060), Sibley Country Club (712-754-2729), Sheldon Country Club (712-324-4275), and Indian Hills Golf Course (712-336-4768).

The reciprocating fee is set by each individual course. Please call ahead to see what the fee is at each golf course.  Reciprocating fees at SMGC are $32 w/rental cart and $20 w/o rental cart. The reciprocating golf privileges are only good for open golf. It is not compatible with league, tournament, or event play. Also, if you have a Spencer address and purchase a membership at one of the reciprocating courses you will not be granted reciprocating privileges at the Spencer Municipal Golf Course.

Our punch cards are available for $260. This gives you 18 nine hole rounds of golf to use throughout the year. These punch cards will allow the nine hole league members to play the entire league season on one punch card. It also allows an affordable option to use our facility without purchasing season passes or paying green fees each visit.

Cart storage fees are due by April 15th, 2023.  Anyone interested in paying their season fees early by mail send your payment to Spencer City Hall, 101 West 5th Street, Spencer IA 51301.  Arrangements can also be made to stop in at the clubhouse for credit card payment.  The Spencer Municipal Golf Course does not accept credit card payment over the phone.

We continue to update the 2023 event calendar on a weekly basis.  If you are interested in holding an event please contact us to secure a date and discuss details.  Events held in 2022 will have the first choice to hold the same date in the upcoming season.

There were many updates done to the golf course as a result of the 2017 water quality improvement project.  These improvements will help improve the drainage, surface water drainage, control flooding, and increase water quality.  This process should improve the entire SW part of Spencer.

We look forward to seeing each of you during the 2023 golf season.
