Title VI Non-Discrimination Plan
Established in early 1963, and owned and present owner, Don Semeyn since the early 1980’s, Spring Valley is a public and private membership course.
Owner, Don Semeyn, purchased the 9-hole course in the early 1980’s. He then designed and laid out another nine, now called the “back nine.” Working with local contractors, they completed the additional 9 holes in 1989. Don and his staff are proud that they have been voted No. 1 golf course in Osceola County many years running. Carol Semeyn, events coordinator maintains the running of the clubhouse and organizing outings.
The course is an 18-hole, par 72 course. The front nine, 3455 yards in length is preferred by advanced hitters, while the back nine is a relaxing wooded 2984 yards with tighter fairways. Together, the two nines offers play for all skills levels. Michigan Golfer Magazine called Spring Valley “One of the Gems of the North.”
Along with open play every day, league play is offered six days a week Monday and Wednesday men and women leagues, Tuesday men, Thursday men and Friday and Sunday mixed couples. All leagues except Thursday’s are walk-on leagues.
Being a member has lots of privileges. Membership entitled you to free greens fee 7 days a week and holidays. Discounts in the pro shop and generous cart discounts. Members have free use of the facility for private gatherings, schedules permitting. As a season-end thank you to its members, Spring Valley hosts the annual ‘plaid party.’ Members dress in silly or serious plaid outfits and costumes are judged. Then members golf, eat and have fun all day.
Open to the public also is the driving range and free use of the putting and chipping areas. Senior, 55 and over, rates are available 7 days a week. Spring Valley has been the hose course for the Reed City Golf Team for many years and they are very proud of the teams’ accomplishments. The comfortable clubhouse offers seating for 60-90 and patio for seating 60, a sandwich menu and a full bar.
Spring Valley has reasonably priced golf/food packages for outings as well as events such as couples bridal showers, bachelor parties, family outings, reunion, etc.
Carol likes working with the area nonprofit agencies organizing golf fundraisers. “A golf outing is a great place where participants can do their part to help raise much-needed money for local agencies while having fun.”

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name. Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933. Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
