After months of bugging my wife to come play a round of golf, she finally caved in! Mind you I have only about 4 months of experience, so it was more about the experience of just hanging out with her. The weather was incredible and we were paired with two Dave's! Both couldn't have been more patient and simply amazing gentleman to my wife and I. It was a bit crowded, a couple impatient groups that must have had better things to do, bedsides enjoying beautiful weather. There were temporary greens on the first few holes, but nothing I would call bad. They actually helped my wife with her nervousness. All and all the club was great! The staff especially, I will definetly be returning again.

The course was in excellent conditions, albeit, 3 holes had temporary greens, this did not detract from a most enjoyable round, best greens we have played on since the start of our holiday ( 14 rounds of golf )

With the severe drought FL has been experiencing, the staff has done a very good job to keep the course in good playing conditions. I've played at a number of other courses in the area and some of them have only focused on keeping the putting green in good condition while letting the fairways go. Of course there are watering restrictions plus lack of rain which has severely hurt the process.

We only played 9 holes. The front 9 was closed for construction. The course was in good shape. However, I prefer the front 9 because the back 9 has too many par 3s.

Went for a quick 9 after work and found the front 9 closed for reconstruction. Guess I missed the notice. So I paid a bit of a premium to play a par 31 back 9. That part of the course was in pretty good shape when you compare it to some of the other courses this time of year considering the drought we are in. The greens were cut long and slow, but were very true and lush. Had a good time and look forward to seeing what the front 9 looks like when it is complete.

Course is in great shape with a couple of greens being worked on. Plan on playing slowly!!! It was backed up over the entire course but everyone seemed to stay with the group in front. You won't be invited to play through but play was continually moving.

Nice experience. Friendly staff. Course is not fancy. Greens are not the slickest. Lots of fairways lined up side by side. Don't use this course to impress a client or a serious golf friend, but good value for the money when you just want to get out and play a round. Overall, I would recommend it as a good value experience rather than a great golf experience. I would play here again on that basis.

Course by yardage is short but it's because the back nine is all 3's and 4's with the 3's being very long and I think there five 3's so overall the yardage is short but the par 3's are challenging, the greens on the back nine are in much much better shape, almost different. Overall this course is good value for the $$, real good value!!!

Golfnow hotdeal worked for us. Third time we have played here. Proshop and clubhouse are good. Short course. 2 - 5's on the front at 3100 yds. 5 -3's & 4 - 4's on back. Much shorter back. Would play here next year, again, on hotdeal.

Winter Pines is always a great place to practice your game and evaluate the areas that need improvements. The course was in god condition. The some of the greens need a little bit of work, but that is why they are going to rebuild some of them in April 2017. The pace of play was very slow due to a group in front playing to cautiously. The weather was great.
