Windmill Lakes is a long course for an older golfer. I consider it somewhat boring as most of the holes are straight away. The greens, on the other hand, are some of the most fun and challenging I have ever putted on.

I absolutely would recommend you pay Windmill Lakes at least once, and if you like it and are a long hitter return often. The price we paid was a winter rate special after Thanksgiving . The course is ALWAYS in great shape and kept up well. I do not recommend it when the weather is wet though.

Second time playing this course. Played in a scramble last year so this was the first time on my own ball. The challenging part of the course when I played was some fairly devious pin placements right behind traps. Okay if you're a 10 or below handicap. Pretty difficult for 11-plus or so. The other difficult was that the greens were very hard. I hit full wedges in on a few holed that barely left a ball mark. Good for keeping the greens looking good but difficult when trying to stop a ball. Two times I git wedges to the green when I "heard" the ball hit the green. I don't think I should be able to "hear" a ball hit the ground from over 100 years away. Good value for the money. Pace was okay. I was a single and got stuck behind two different groups for a hole or so but they were gracious in letting me play through.
