Course played really well considering winter conditions. Greens were hard as a rock so it was hard to get the ball to stick, but it was barely above freezing, if at all.

Let me get this straight: Windy Hill is not even close to a four-star golf course. It's in mediocre shape at best, with burnt out sports on tee boxes and greens, uncut fairways, and poorly manicured bunkers. It is not bad enough to be 1 star but do not expect much.

The greens are relatively inconsistently cut. I've putt on some that run at around a 6 or 7 on the stimpmeter and some that run at about a 9 or 10. So every green is a new challenge (to put it nicely). The bunkers are really never in very good shape. They're either really hard without a lot of sand or they very wet with water in them. Not a whole lot of in between.

The layout is nothing special. The opening hole is a downhill par 5 that is reachable in two for almost any decent player. I hit driver, 4 iron and I don't drive the ball longer than 260. The second is a mid-length par three over water. Outside of those two holes and 8 and 9, the course doesn't have a whole lot of character. Holes 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 seem are straightforward. The course is extremely easy. Any good player will pretty much be able to hit iron and wedge in on every par 4 and a driver and middle iron on any of the par 5's.

Look, if you are looking to get in a pretty quick round in between taking cuts in the batting cages (yes, they do have batting cages) and testing your driving skills at go-karts, then this is the place to go. Looking to play a Saturday round with your friends? Windy Hill is not your place.

We had a great day at Windy Hill Lake Course. hit some range balls to warm up and played 18 with cart. Awesome price. Started in the morning at 925 am, so the course was wet. Greens were slower, but as the day went on and it dried up boy did they get fast. Grass in the tee box, fairways and rough is grown in nicely. The course is in awesome shape. Going to be playing here a few more times this Fall.

Course has many golfers which backed up play.

Encouraged by staff to by pass slower golfers and return later to holes that where by passed.

This is a very nice 9 hole course with three par 3's, four par 4's and 2 par 5's. It is not so long that average length hitters have trouble reaching the greens in regulation, yet long enough that most clubs in the bag will be used. Despite being early in the season, it was nice to be hitting off grass in the fairway, not hardpan. The greens felt firm (no ball marks to repair), yet were easy to hold, not too fast, and putts ran smoothly. The staff in the clubhouse could not have been friendlier or more helpful.
