Stopped in Jacksonville on my way home from the Keys and was itching to play some golf. Picked this course because it was closest to the shopping area my wife wanted to go to. Paid about $40 for a Saturday afternoon round. Course was about what I expected it to be for that price near a larger city. The course was not it bad shape. But not pristine. About what you’d expect for a 40 buck public course. Fairways, rough, tees were all mowed. Fairways in pretty good shape. And most tee boxes too. Except the par 3s. They were chewed up so. Greens were smooth and firm. But a little slow in my opinion. I had trouble getting anything to stop on them. But then couldn’t get the ball to the hole on my putts. Layout is fairly interesting. A lot of doglegs. Some short holes. A couple of longer ones. Most par 3s were short to medium irons from the white tees. 1 short par 5. The others were average distance. A lot of water. Most of it on the side. But 4-5 forced carries at some point. Saw the cart girl 2 times. $3 for a Pepsi. $4 for a draft beer in the clubhouse. Overall not bad and would play again. Good choice in the area when you want to play a round without the agony or expense of Sawgrass or the World Golf Village.

Fairways are in good condition. Greens are slow and pitted. Staff at reception and departure are great! Cart girl talks way too much about herself and if you let her talk she will hold you up for a

While.

Not very challenging but good for a day out of the office and great location.

I love the layout of this course. But the bunkers were not raked and haven’t been trimmed in a long time. The greens are aerated and are in horrible condition for the value. And the fairways are were damp and in some areas puddles. The pace was slow. This course was once a gem. However, lately they have not kept the greens in good condition. They also don’t mention that the greens have been aerated.

It is challenging course since there are a lot of waters and the fairways are nallow, I put many balls into the water. My score was very bad and worst. But, the course is well maintained on both fairways and greens.

We had an excellent experience! The course was challenging but had many par opportunities. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly from the pro shop to the starter to the cart service. The course plays at 4:10 but they told us it was crowded due to the Players Championship going on and was playing at about 4:30. Having the heads up was great and it didn’t mar our experience in the least bit. We will definitely play this course again the next time we are in the area!

Always enjoy playing Windsor. Greens rolled true and fairways in good shape. Tee boxes on many holes could use some work as some are uneven and need some grass. Layout is a good test for anyone to play and watch those front hole locations as it can make it more difficult.

Overall the course was fine. The tee boxes fairways and greens were good. The grass around the greens and slightly off the fairways is sparse. Chipping is difficult due to lack of grass. The layout is nice. They also have a nice practice range.

Don’t come here unlessI you want to play a round of golf waiting on groups of “men members” that will not keep up with group in front of them and absolutely will not let you play through, I mean,, just flat refused. So if you like waiting and waiting on every shot, this is the place for you. And don’t expect any help from management. They have no interest in making golf a decent experience.
