Sorry to say, this course has dropped a bit in my ranking. Have been away for a few years and was looking forward to playing again. Have to say while the course is great, the pace of play was extremely slow and the ranger knew it. They allowed way too many two player groups on the course and did not pair them up even though it was obvious many of them were slowing down the pace of play to a crawl. I like the course but too long of a drive for a 5+ hr round of golf on a Friday afternoon. May try them on a weekend to see if they manage pace of play any better.

After a week of questionable weather, the forecast was for a “picture perfect day” and I was able to secure a tee time for my wife and myself to get in 9-holes. Conditions, course and staff were above approach. Though we were a twosome following a threesome following a foursome, pace of play was ideal (course knows how to pace groups).

Windmill Lakes is a mature, exceptionally maintained and a good test of golf. Windmill cut down over 200 trees which opened up the course. It was a well thought out move and was overdue.

There a 4 sets of tees. Fairways are lush and the rough is manageable. The greens are big, undulated and putt true. Some sand traps could use some work, however overall they are good.

The staff in the grill room are very friendly and efficient. Some of the staff in the clubhouse have an elitist air to them and do not come off as friendly. There are a few exceptions, which is refreshing, however Windmill Lakes has always had this attitude as I have been golfing there for over 30years. I think it is the young dudes that bring a bit of arrogance naturally.

Overall, I highly recommend Windmill Lakes. One of the Top 5 public golf courses in NE Ohio in my opinion.

One of the best courses for the value in NE Ohio and one of the most challenging.

Numerous trees have been removed in order to speed up play that will make it even better to play once the weather makes a change for the better.

Despite still being in winter conditions even though the calendar says spring, the course was in great shape.

Windmill Lakes is a long course for an older golfer. I consider it somewhat boring as most of the holes are straight away. The greens, on the other hand, are some of the most fun and challenging I have ever putted on.

I absolutely would recommend you pay Windmill Lakes at least once, and if you like it and are a long hitter return often. The price we paid was a winter rate special after Thanksgiving . The course is ALWAYS in great shape and kept up well. I do not recommend it when the weather is wet though.
