First time playing Used cart Played 9 holes Excellent weather

We played Windance on a beautiful clear but windy day. The course was in excellent shape from tee to green and the greens were very very true. You had better beware of the subtle breaks as every green here has them. Number 2 is a monster Par 3 but after that the length becomes a bit more reasonable throughput the round. Hole sixteen is a great par 5 and to us was the top hole on the course but overall a very pleasant round in view of the golf course.

The problem we encountered was pace of play of the lack of it. The first 4 holes were fine and then we caught up to the 5 some on the course which was often waiting on the 4some in front of them. Pace pf play issues can be attributed to the course as well as the golfers. In this case I am not sure why a 5some is ever allowed to play much less on a very busy Sunday. The other point is golfers, including those in front of us all day, need to truly be realistic of their limits. Waiting to hit your second shot on a par 5 from over 250 yds out until the group in front of you has cleared the green is seldom truly needed and never was on this day.

The staff was very friendly and the cart girl was ever present during the round…something that many places seems to be lacking.

Would recommend this course to other with the warning of weekend play could be very slow.

Windance is a step or two below some of the top courses in Biloxi-Gulfport like Shell Landing, Grand Bear and The Preserve, but it's a fine value at about $59-75, less than the cost of the above area courses, perhaps because this course is in a residential community, while the others are more secluded.

The layout is pretty interesting, and the greens are really tough. We played from the tips on a wet day, and it was all the golf we needed. The course has particularly difficult and sloping greens that can really give you a tough time if you're above the hole. The course formerly hosted the Nike/Hogan tours in the 1990s, and past champions include Jim Furyk and Tom Lehman.

I thought the course might be walkable and chose to do so, but there were a few long drives between holes. I probably wouldn't do that again.

I did really enjoy the clubhouse lunch, which included a delicious breakfast burger with potatoes and egg on it.

The course is an amenity of the Island View Casino, who purchased the course in 2007, and there are some very good stay-and-play specials. Island View's new tower is a very good affordable place to stay right on the beach.

I grew up on the coast and loved the opportunity to play here as a kid which was seldom. My Mother lives on the course now so i play it frequently. I also get to watch the grounds crew work while drinking coffee from inside her home. They are always there the same time everyday making sure the course is nice. The pace of play has always been great and I play there often. Windance is a great course for the average golfer or the Scratch looking for a challenge. I love number 15 a little par three but beautifully seluded. Love It

Course is in perfect shape, greens, fairways, tees. Friendliest people around and the staff is top notch. The food and drinks are fair price and excellent quality. Played twice while in the area. Preferred over Grand Bear, Bridges and Oaks.

A very solid course even under winter conditions. Greens were surprisingly quick even though dormant. Number 8 an 10 greens was especially tricky.

This course is an excellent, interesting layout with fast greens. The entire golf course was in good shape, particularly the greens. A good buy for the price.
