I have been playing WP for many years. Although he greens weren't as fast as they will be they were lush and consistent. The best shape I have probably ever seen them in. The pace of play was great. We only hade to wait on the group in front of us 2 or 3 times. A 4 hour round.

Made a reservation and showed up 50 minutes early, the parking lot was full but they had an overflow lot. We dropped our bags and parked our car, when we got back to the bag drop we were told that there were no carts available, we told them we would be at the driving range. No offer to take our bags there. We went to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls. Carried our bags back and still no carts. We were assured there would be some momentarily.

After an hour and a half of "no carts" people were backing up at the bag drop and no communication from the staff and asked for the manager on site. He happened to come Into the pro shop while I was asking for a refund. When I explained the issue to him he had a blank star and blamed a group that was on the course and that was holding up all the carts. Mind you, the same person scurried from the pro shop to the cart shed that was in clear view of the back up at the bag drop. He also returned to the club house a different way to avoid the crowd.

The manager should be trained in customer service as well as the cart boys. To blame a group of golfers and not take action to get them off the course or inform the patrons of the issue when they take your payment is awful. They are responsible for the golfers on the course, and by the way, the cart boys were making comments about the group on the course that was giving the players a mulligan for every beer they drank. If an employee of the golf course knew about this issue it should have been stopped before it became a problem.

Very very disappointed!

This course is set up for the "target" golfer. Keep your shots in play... You should score well. Play one extra club on some holes for carrying distance. Greens are in pure conditions . Enjoy the day.

I've played this course many times over the past 20 years but this was the first time in about 3 years. The course condition was good for mid-winter. Greens were over-seeded and in good condition, moderately fast. There are several very challenging holes (at least for me), especially when the breeze is blowing like it was this day. Overall, Windsor is a very good value.

I was expecting better conditions based upon recent reviews on Golf Advisor.

I did not expect a completely dormant course, except for the greens.

I like the layout, but the course needs TLC. Fairways and tee boxes should be overseeded, bunkers need lots of work, hitting irons from dormant fairways creates flyers like you see from rough.

Some very bare spots just off fairways.

The person at the desk was very unfriendly for some reason. I think it was due to the fact that we got a hot deal & didn't pay full price. Will never go back or recommend this course to anyone else.

My son and I enjoy playing Windsor Parke a few times a year - he's in the Navy and I visit from Indiana. Great seeing the wildlife because of the trees and ponds - hawks swooping down to catch a lemming, geese and ducks on the ponds, and squirrels in the trees. Haven't had a bad experience yet!

Windsor used to be a primo course in Jacksonville. Sadly thats not the case anymore. Cart paths in disrepair in many areas. Uprooted tree holes from hurricane a danger in some areas. Clubhouse needs paint in some areas. Fairways need fertilizer or overseeding. For the price thats charged, these things should b maintained and they are not.

The course itself is a tough test for most amateurs. Many interesting holes but crowned and sloped fairways are very unforgiving for anything less than a perfect shot.

The course was a bit wet with all the recent heavy rains but they are doing a good job keeping up. The heat of the days are helping to dry things up as well. Was paired up with a couple a great guys and the round was a lot of fun. Thanks guys and will see you again soon.
