Took so long, over 3 hours to play a very short front nine, 5.5 hours to play the round. The greens were very beat up and not that great. Probably because so many "duffers" or Democrats play here and they don't fix their ball marks. Will not play again on a weekend that's for sure. It's a short track, but the Par 3's from the back tees are long and great to play. I enjoyed those.

I truly love playing at Winter Pines, and the course is almost always in great condition, but with winter here and the "Snowbirds" down in Florida, once again, we find the greens filling up with ball marks from careless players who are either too lazy or too ignorant to repair their damage left from finally making it to the green. Please remember, many people play this course year round, and the mess you leave is there for months, if not fixed by someone who cares, and if that person who cares is not you, then stay home!

Jim was extremely kind to two old but devoted golfers who like to play - the groups in front of us kept up the pace and we finished 18 holes in about 3 hours. Since we are 89 and 90 years old and don't hit it far any more we have a good time and play better ball.

The staff members at the course have always been outstanding and make playing there a pleasure.

Front nine a regular par 36 layout, back only par 29 with no par 5 and several par 3's. Holes are generally short in length except for 3 of the backside par 3's are around 200 yds. Not very much water and not a lot of traps. Overall, a reasonably easy course for a get away day of relaxation on a golf course. It is not a challenging course and does not require a lot of thinking.

I have been a member here for over two years, and have had the pleasure of bringing many friends to play this beautiful course, it is always in good shape, and the the greens are in great shape, save a few spots where less than professional golfers level ball makes or damage them because of their bad play and habits.

This is a very popular course and so is very crowed. It took over 5 hours to play our round. There is no real started. You just line up at the first tee and wait your turn. There is no beverage cart and only limited beverage availability in the "clubhouse".

we had never heard of this course and were pleasantly surprised. Fairways were good, greens the best on the back 9 but the front was tolerable. Friendly staff esp. at the 19th hole. Although the yardage is short, there were enough challenges to keep us interested. The par 3's are very long.

Greens need work but generally in good shape.

Front nine no problem at all feels like A real golf course but the back nine has four or five long par threes so the back feels like an executive course.

This course is in great condition. From the tee boxes to the greens it is n some of the best shape of any course in central florida. The first par 3 on the front nine is a bit rough (the green is under re-construction) and had lots of sand on it.

The pace of play here is extremely slow and it is every single Saturday. Expect to play 18 in 5-6 hours. It's a very very busy course on the weekends.

The par 3's here are some of the most challenging in all of central florida.

The course is very well maintained and the layout is as challenging as you want to make it . This is a vintage course with a mix of wide fairways and well placed trees and bunkers .If your a long hitter it gets more challenging . Well worth the price and the staff is very friendly.
