A good course for not a lot of money.

Pace of play was excellent. 3.5 hr round. Course was in great shape. Not a lot of trouble to get into. I would recommend this course.

Nice track, good value

One of the better courses in the Fort Pierce area. Greens very good, course condition likewise, layout is fun with some challenges. Rather less water than a lot of Florida courses. Pretty wide open in general. The only reservation I have is the course is so busy that you may have trouble getting off on time. Been here twice and it happened both times. They appear to have lots of league play early in the day, and I suppose that's the reason. Will certainly return.

Fairwinds

We went to Fairwinds mainly because it was $24 before 8am. The course was in the best condition that I have seen it and is one of the best values in the area. Fairways were great greens held and pitted true and the traps were immaculate. Their rates do go up in January so don’t expect to play for $24 but it is still a good value.

Pleasant Florida muni golf

Fairwinds, the St. Lucie County muni, is a solid test of sub-tropical parkland golf built over a former landfill adjacent to a municipal airport. The sights and sounds of small aircraft taking off and landing either lends ambience or annoyance depending on who you are. The back nine has some awkward routing, but nothing too egregious. The par fives are pretty short and scoreable. Fairwinds is not too long or too difficult - just a serviceable muni course, which should be the game's bread and butter.

Totally underrated

Honestly, one of the best public courses I have ever palyed. Fun layout, well manicured, and fantastic practice facility. Greens were in superb condition, which I often find rare with public courses. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I would recommend this course to any level golfer, many tee boxes for any ability. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I will be back again, no doubt.

Price of Round

I understand this is a public course and if the price was reflected to match the conditions of the course that would be nice. I do not mind playing golf on a goat ranch just as long as it is priced to reflect that fact. I would say about $12 dollars a round would be fair for this course. It was built on an old landfill, I think it has almost been returned to its original condition.

I do enjoy playing there but just paid $31 for 9 holes. This is not the course for that level of pricing.

To be fair this an old rating and Golfnow should remove. It is a very unfair rating as this course is very nice and one of the best maintained public courses in the area.

Golfer friendly

Pretty cool laid back golf course. I played the green tees, about 5600 yards. I'm old, what can I say. Hit a 190 yard drive and have a make able shot to the green. This place is built on a dump. Fees are OK. The 4 -stool bar and dining room is cozy. This is a course you can have fun playing. People are volunteers and are friendly. Try it.
