Amazing place and course. Didn’t like getting bumped by members 20 minutes but it’s in the confirmation that it’s possible, so....

Greens were bumpy maybe should have been rolled again?

5 + hour pace of play so not good for golf but frankly the surroundings are so amazing you are just in awe.

A must play in California!!

Played here multiple times but not in the last few years. Perfect day, course and greens were in excellent condition. Well manicured as always,

sand traps were perfect also and pace of play was less than 4 hours, hardly any one on the course. Staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend playing it.

First time playing this course. A little pricey but once in a while I will splurge. All of the employees were very nice. Gentleman in pro shop explained everything to me, where the driving range was, tee boxes who to check in with etc. The course was in excellent shape, greens, fairways, tee boxes and sand traps with real sand. Not many people on the course this day which was great, the round went quick and was enjoyable. Like any course it would be nice to have some course knowledge, so now I have some. Will play this course again as it is a very nice course with some nice scenery and wildlife.

We all like the course, greens are little tricky. Course in great shape some holes has nice view. Staffs are very nice and helpful, We like to play again, price wise little expensive. The Golf Now sent me 25% off the green fee coupon, that help to knock down some green fee we enjoyed.

Winchester is a great course and is getting back to flawless condition under new ownership . Staff meets you at your car and makes a good first impression . From the parking lot , to the pro shop , the range attendants , and the starter - to the marshals on the course - EVERYONE was friendly and helpful . The course is visually stunning and in great condition .

I was met by staff in the parking lot. Extremely friendly…..The range in good condition and not crowded, water and cold towels were provided. I was paired with another single who played from white tees while I played from the tips. Definitely playable for any handicap but back tees on several holes require fades or draws while whites allow less challenging tee balls. Great design! Good tee shots allow for legitimate birdie opportunities but attention must be paid to putts or you can easily 3-putt some greens. Great experience!

I need to golf this course again when there is not a tournament in front of me. If I had known I would not have booked as it made play VERY slow. BUT the course if wonderful and can be a challenge if you have never played here before.

I had a great time, used my eagle status free 4some so yeah it was a great value. But i've been here a few times before and have always been treated great, even better with the new ownership. Course was in great shape with challenging and firm greens. Friends had a great time too. Special thanks to the starter/range attendant who was cleaning everyones clubs while they were on the range, as well as sending ppl off the first Tee. Great time!

Winchester is one of the best courses in Northern CA. It is pricy, but well worth the experience. The course is in fantastic shape, although they do seem to be having some trouble with the greens, but not to an extent that detracts from the value. The staff is incredible, and the facilities are in a class of their own. If you aren't breaking 80 with any consistency, you may want to avoid it, as you will probably have an incredibly frustrating day. But if you are able to have fun while struggling, simply to enjoy a spectacular course in tranquil surroundings, then by all means, GO FOR IT!

Day we played, it was empty so we finished in 3 hours.<br/> Nice amenities and staff was very friendly and courteous.<br/> Course plays longer than actual yardage due to layout.<br/> If I lived close, I would likely join this club.

This course came highly recommended from some friends. It has all the nice trappings of a good course: excellent practice facility, beautiful clubhouse, friendly staff and nice carts. However, the course isn't a true championship track. Many of the holes are tight and great drives leave you with uneven lies and peculiar second shots. The strength of the course is its par 3's. A couple are outstanding. The longest of the par 5's is also nice. Overall, there are other great golf courses in the area that should be played first.
