Great course

I love the layout and condition of this course. It’s a good challenge and so well groomed. My only complaint is they do not offer handicap flags so you can go up close to greens

Over priced

Not worthy $52.00 at any point I understand COVID-19 has changed some things but for golf it haven't. If anything COVID-19 has help golf courses because I know for sure golf was the only thing open during the pandemic. Why are they changing extra for a single cart if you want to ride along when for years you have benefited from two golfers riding together. Example if your cart rate is $20.00 to ride and we pay for 18 holes and a cart that's $40.00 for one cart when two players ride together. At this point you're not give each golfers $10.00 back for riding together. Before COVID-19 it was offered to ride together or not. Now it's a way for golf courses to just make extra money instead of enjoying the fact that golf has been the only sport/business open during the pandemic. Let me help you out with something. When you are out of carts it's not because players are riding separately it's because your attendance is up and maybe at a all time high. Because there nothing else to do!!! So stop trying to take advantage of your customer's and just be happy that you haven't suffered like other businesses and families during the pandemic. Because if things every get back to normal you're going miss not having a full tee sheet.

Average course w slow play

Course was in good shape however the layout is very boring. I couldn’t tell what hole I was on because every hole seemed the same. Pace of play was also very slow. Needed a ranger to speed pace up.

Beautiful club/facilities

First time at this club. Nice course, well maintained. Roughs were dry and patchy in places due to the dry summer. Nice course layout. Very little water obstacles. Shady course. Bunkers are well maintained. Very friendly staff. Rate of play was super slow. We caught up to the foursome in front of us by the third hole and it was play-and-wait the rest of the day as the backup became more and more congested ahead of us and the party in front of us. Would golf here again.

Windmill Lakes Golf Club

OMG...what happened to Windmill. This course used to be beautiful, Now not so. There are many dead areas in some of the fairways from water decay, Many approaches have dead areas requiring to move the ball to find grass. Hole #8 is a disaster. The once large scenic pond guarding the green is now covered with green scum. The long tee is just a mass of divots with no filling whatsoever, Other Par 3's are chopped up from divots from players. Looks like very little attention given to divot repair by staff. The 10th tee apparently died as it is closed and being redone. All the tee blocks are in front of the once tee. Looks like the 1st tee is going to get the same as tee blocks are all in front of the tee. There are five sets off tees on every hole. However the greens are very nice and clear of dead spots. Windmill always had nice and fast greens and pristine course conditions. There was a lot of rain in the area but all the other courses managed to keep their fairways and ponds attractive, The greens fee at Windmill is the highest in the area. Sad to see course so bad. Hopefully some day it will receive the proper maintenance it deserves.

Great Course

Windmill Lakes never lets you down. Course was in really good shape. Fairways and Greens were perfect and the rough was thick. Absolutely love this place. And the Pro Shop is top notch. Go see Justin for your Club Fitting needs!

Accommodating Staff

I had 11 golfers and 4 separate tee times! Staff member in pro shop and starter were awesome in arranging our 11 in three times while not hurting pace of play. So accommodating and appreciated! Course is always a good track to play. Tee boxes were a bit beat up due to humidity, shade and some rain?!! Herb Page is always great to bump into and always willing to talk about golf and his KSU players on tour! An added bonus for sure! Pins were in their Sunday 2 position which is always a challenge

Why so Wet?

CLE area has had 2 days of rain in July and this course was soaked. We were cart path only till the 5th hole. Playing a course this tough in wet conditions (when it should be bone dry) is not the most fun. Still the course was a deal, and I love playing here. I hope they aren't having drainage issues.
