I have played this course many times when I had my membership. This was the first time I have played this course since they have redone the course. It is in great condition and they made it more challenging. I really had a great time. I do miss the old staff. New staff was friendly. The greens where bigger but they have added more challenging bunkers. The greens were in good condition as well as the fairways. The rough was decent to find your ball :).

We live in Winter Park so this house is great for us if we feel like a quick round of golf; can usually play 9 holes in one and a half hours; if we go around again, it's still under 4 hours. We don't go to this course looking for a challenge but just to have fun.

The course is surrounded by a beautiful neighborhood walking into the pro shop it was small but I appreciated that because of the feeling that this wasn't tourist golf. They aren't trying go gouge your wall with high prices. i didn't get the best welcome from the guy at the counter but I chalked it up to having a bad day. I was able to play and walk right out on the first tee. There is a practice putting green right out the front door of the pro shop but there is also a larger one closer to the 9th tee box as well. The course is pretty short and that played to my advantage because I was able to take advantage of the short par 4s and 5s. The par three greens are very undulating and elevated with tricky pin placements and for me not easy scoring holes. The greens have been newly redone and they role fastish and true. But you have to be accurate with your shots or you could end up with a big breaking put. I enjoyed breaking away from the monotony of the tourists courses and the pace of play was outstanding. I suggest walking if able so you have time to enjoy the sights and sounds surrounding the course. Oh and almost every hole is lined by heavily used roads so hit them straight.

I play this course a few times a month. It's a great course for practice, specifically to work on your irons. It's short, but fun. If you beat the crowd you can play 9 holes in under 1.5 hours.

The recent renovations made the course slightly more difficult, which is a good thing. The greens are no longer flat, but instead offer some challenging putts. Some of the fairway bunkers were beefed up to make those holes much more appealing to the eye. However, only 1 or 2 of those bunkers are really even in play.

Overall, it's a great course with super friendly staff.

I played the new Winter Park 9 Course. I read all the reviews from Matt Ginella, SI, etc and all boasted about how great the course is after the renovation. I was hoping not to have my expectations too high, but all of them were met.

Course has more contours than it being flat, elevated greens, reshaped the bunkers to be more traditional. The course is a little more open on holes 5 & 6. Greens rolled better than ever before. Pace was fantastic as we did not have to wait on any hole on both go rounds that I did on the 9.

Nice little 9 hole walking course in middle of Winter Park, recently renovated, new greens and sand traps and some modulation added to fairways, some trees thinned out too. All in all, makes for a very nice way to spend about 90 minutes on a perfect day without the hassle of som courses. Will do it again, when get an afternoon off and want a relaxing golf 9.

1st time playing here since the 1 million renovation. New tee boxes, new greens, new bunkers. Tried to give it a links style feel, the greens are big and undulating, some new bunkers may catch you out!!

Always a good course to play, however it does need time to bed-in, greenkeepers were out doing their stuff, next year it will be a good test of golf.

First time back since the revamp. Course in good shape...we'll see how long that lasts. Unless players repair ball marks, things will recede. Still a gem. a little hardpan/ too closely mowed in some spots, could be a bit more cushion.
