So slow

Played the first 7 holes in about 1 hour. Then 3+ hours to play the rest. A foursome held up play for everyone. Wish they had a ranger who had the balls to tell people to speed up or let people play through. Watch 2 twosome quit mid round in front cause it took so long. Won’t ever get play here again. And this is their slow day lol

Average public golf

Some good, some bad. At first I thought the course conditions weren’t very good. But they got some better as I went. Generally speaking the tee boxes either needed to be cut or were really chewed up. Especially on the par 3. A lot of the tees on par 3 were more sand than grass. The fairways were in good shape. The greens were not great. Several of them had bare spots that were sanded and in general they were really slow. I’m big on greens being in good shape and these needed rolling badly to smooth them out I thought. Rough isn’t too thick. The layout is really fun. A lot of water in play. Several dog legs. Long and short holes and the course is fun to play. It wasn’t very busy so the pace of play is good. I played here last year on my way through town and thought the overall condition was better last year than this year. Mainly Bc the greens weren’t as good. This course could be a gem with just a little more TLC. Cut the tee boxes. Move them around so they aren’t in chewed up areas. Smooth the greens out. Just a little work like that and it would be a pearl. Clubhouse is really nice. Paid $40 on a Saturday which isn’t bad. I’d play here again. But I’d like to see the greens roll better and be in better shape.

Greens starting to recover

Greens were punched and sanded a few weeks ago. Finally recovering. Still slightly bumpy. Should be in decent shape in another week. Fairways and tee boxes in good shape. Played it for $18 on a GolfNow hot buy. Can’t beat that!

Windsor Parke

Its a good layout, but needs better maintenance. Always rough around the edges, greens go from perfect and superfast to sandy and unplayable at different times.
Biggest problem is they dont really monitor whose teeing off when, or what the tee time is, so unless you book a 4-some dont book here, my tee times got screwed up or just skipped 3 straight times.

Greens

Greens are terrible. Literally unputtable, course overall is in poor shape. Weeds everywhere, crab grass, rotten bridges. Wouldn’t suggest anybody play here unless it’s for free

Rather play elsewhere for more money

First off, the starter and clubhouse staff were extremely rude and arrogant about the quality of their course. The course was very recently punched with more sand than grass on all greens and the one bunker I hit out of was like hitting off concrete. If they think charging $50 a round for a subpar course is acceptable, they are joking themselves. But then again the joke was on me, because I was already committed to playing there. Course was worth MAYBE $25 today. I’d much rather play at St. John’s for $60 and it be a course four times the quality as this place. Overall layout of the course was slightly above average. 0% me and my foursome will be returning there ever again. Will be going to Brentwood before coming back here

Reasonable rate for decent golf

Price is about right for what you get. Golf course is in decent shape. Greens okay, better on back than front. It’s a good layout overall. Bunkers lack sand and drainage appears to be a growing issue.

Sad to see this course deteriorating!

The layout is good and offers fun and challenges. However, the condition of the course deteriorates fast and a lot. The front 9 greens and surrounding areas are awful! The back 9 is better and acceptable.
Tee boxes and fairways are very average. I used to love this course and I wouldn't recommend my friends to play it anymore.

Great layout

Great layout, the holes all have their own unique shape. The greens are tough but conditions are great. I recommend if you are in the area.
