Have played Windmill since the late 1990's and still think it's the best value for money and top-notch course in NE Ohio. Love the greens, pace of play is typically very good (likely because the course is more challenging, more experienced players typically play it). Pro Shop is top notch too. Not a thing wrong here. Bravo to the staff foe making it so!!

I love, Windmill Lakes, the staff is not very friendly, they set us up with a single and within minutes that changed to a twosome, they were not able to give directions on the phone??? told me to get it off the internet!!!! The restrooms and lower level has been ignored, it smells and needs cleaned badly.

Windmill Lakes is a Pro quality course. Great variety of tee positions, outstanding groomed fairways, like hitting off carpet. Ruff mowed and well maintained, greens challenging and true, just a great course. GPS on carts never leave a doubt on what club to use. Will definitely be returning to play again.

Great course. Greens are fast, with subtle breaks, that can be a challenge to read. The layout is great, no tricked up fairways, with no blind spots to the green. Overall, great course. Poor pace of play.

Sand protected almost every green with the pin placement forcing a carry over the sand in most cases. It was a risk/reward decision in every case. We played the white (6100 yd) tees and scored our usual scores. Greens were fast and undulating, but not overly tricky. We played @ 7:36am with several groups before and after. We still finished by noon with minimal waiting. A very well-stocked clubhouse. The only downer was that the snack bar wasn't opened before tee-time, so no coffee. Not a deal-breaker by any stretch. The regulars were all friendly as was the staff. Upon hearing this was our first time at WL, the starter quickly explained some of the holes, GPS and pin placements. A great value! Was kind of hoping it would be set up with taller rough for high school and college play...maybe later in the year?
