The course was not horrible...it was just hill after hill, no joke, it seemed like it was uphill EVERY single stroke. And, the cart path was terrible, yet you HAD to stay on it and 3/4th of the time, your ball, if in the fairway, was up or down a hill, 20-30ft from the path. Made it difficult to navigate even if you DID shoot par.

Course layout if pretty good if you have played this course before. Being my first time, it was hard to see the fairway and greens on a number of holes because of the undulating terrain of the course which is one of the reasons why it is a pretty course.

Pace was okay. Came in on my 1:30 tee time just as a tournament was concluding. It was slow slow slow, but I decided to play only 9 holes and cut to the back nine. I finished in 2 hours and left early, didn't play the front nine.

The golf course is a fun and challenging course to play. Very hilly, it can remind you of a mountain course. Greens are kept up very well, much better than most including the more pricey courses. The rate is great, with twilight fees starting earlier than most, especially in the winter. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Great layout with blind shots, hills, valleys, a pond and a creek. Minimal sand bunkers and beautiful scenery.

My wife and I really enjoyed this course. It was slightly drizzling rain but was still able to play without the course conditions changing a lot. A few tee boxes to green were confusing. We did get slightly discouraged due to a mower following us mowing at the end of #5, all through #6 and the beginning of #7. All-in-all, it is a good course and my wife and I will definitely return to play.

Well I'm just a tad confused. The golf course is a really good layout but for the life of me I can't figure out why the entire course was wet and muddy as it hasn't rained for 10 days.

Rough and fairways needed to be cut as there was no roll.

Collars of numerous greens were extremely wet and if you hit short, the ball would literally die right there.

If the maintenance crew could ever figure out how much water to put on the course, it would be a very fair test.

Played Winding Creek for the first time on Sunday. It checks most of the boxes you would use to define 'muni.' This isn't a bad thing, per se. You have to traverse your way down a couple of narrow roads and past a church to get to it. There was the normal Sunday morning group getting ready to go out, and the pro shop staff did a great job in getting me out in front of them. I had the course open and to myself for the rest of the round.

There is a putting green outside the pro shop and a driving range towards the back of the parking lot.

Course knowledge will definitely help you out here, as there are definitely 'hit it here, not there' places on this course. The overriding theme of the course are that there are no flat spots anywhere, with the exception of tee boxes. Every lie in the fairway will be either uphill downhill, or side hill. The same goes for the rough as well. There is a fair amount of elevation change on the course, and quite a few doglegs. Some holes cut through trees, while others are exposed, almost links-like. A creek comes into play on the 2nd hole, and a pond on the 16th. Those are the only two water hazards on the course. The teeboxes were OK to a little shaggy. Fairways had plenty of grass on them. There were a few areas in the rough where large sections of turf had been replaced. There were also uncollected grass clippings in the rough, but they did not affect play at all. The rough was thick enough to be a hindrance, but not thick enough where you could not find your ball. The greens are fairly large and undulating. They had been punched fairly recently, so it was tough to tell how well they rolled, but they seemed to be a little above average as muni greens go. The bunkers were very well maintained and had plenty of soft sand in them.

For the money it's worth playing, not expensive as a lot of courses in area. I highly recommend it to play. Bang for the buck! Pace of play is good, and slower players let you go ahead of them. Round took about 4 hrs with a captain choice tournament going on.

I picked this course for the price but was thrilled with my round. Course will challenge first time players as myself as there are no flat lies on the course aside from the tee boxes! Also most shots are blind off the tee ! Still I came away impressed by the conditions of fairways and greens. Fellow players could not have been any more helpful as several groups let me play through as a single. Staff was great as well.h

The course layout was awkward but the holes were challenging. They criss-cross making for some dangerous driving and dodging incoming drives. All in all if the greens would of been cut the day of play I would say great course. But as it played the greens were slow overplayed and FULL of ball marks. Nothing makes me more frustrated than ball marks. Own it people! If you hit and damage the green, repair it.. the course is not there for just you, but this course had a bigger problem divots, out of the green.. if you have ever done this, do me and the rest of the world a favor... quit the game and get some anger management classes, please. When I told management they seemed like it was normal,and rolled his eyes. All the negative aside I will play it again. It is worth a second round.
