Windy Knoll Golf Club
Windy Knoll Golf Club is known among locals as being one of Springfield's best public golf courses. The course was built in 2001, though you would not be able to tell from its traditional links design. It manages to be a classic links golf course while still being a challenge. The site was originally a horse farm and the design incorporates some of the features from the terrain's former use. Water hazards come into play frequently throughout the golf course and there are trees and rough lining the fairways. Golfers will find many risk-reward opportunities on the course, one good example being the par-4 eighth. This hole plays into the prevailing wind and if you miss your drive, you may find yourself in one of the eight bunkers surrounding the undulating green.

Very Nice Golf Course
Very nice golf course with a great layout and well manicured and maintained while being challenging. It’s worth the drive to Springfield to play. No beverage cart while there today and not sure if that’s normal but it was hot and it’s Saturday... to nice of course not to have a beverage cart. Still a nice very good nice course
This course is in excellent shape. A must play. Well maintained.
Challenging but fair
Greens were a little rough, but otherwise course was in good shape. Sprinklers were a problem on two greens. They finally stopped on a par 3 we were playing but on a par 5 we couldn’t chip or putt due to heavy sprinkling going on. They did not stop. On hole number 1 which we played as #10 guy on tractor mowing would not get out of our way until we were putting. Huge distraction trying to hit onto the green.
One of the best courses around
I’m a bit biased but I think Windy Knoll is one of the best courses in the central Ohio area
Friendly Staff, new carts, good layout, good friends on a very warm day.
Only issue was you get grouped with people but played with three older gentleman’s today and they were amazing guys very fun today I was nervous at first but they made it fun couldn’t play all 18 but played nine and they were good players too good time golf now is where it’s at with prices and courses thanks golf now
My favorite in the area.
Took my Iowa friends. Not busy at all. Great new carts. Beautiful weather. Friendly staff.
Golf Shop Staff
Due to all the rain we were cart path only. Golf course was in excellent shape. Golf shop staff was very friendly and helpful prior to our round. Will definitely be back to play.
I have played this course a lot. First time back in years though. I remember there being yardage sticks though so you could get an idea how far from the green you were and now they are gone. That is the only complaint I have. The course is in great condition. Still love the course.
Windy Knoll Round # 200 at least
Windy Knoll has been my course of choice for a couple years. Every time I play here it is always enjoyable. Great pro shop staff, friendly and accommodating.
Great layout, fair course. Due to all the rain the course was wet and greens slow. Being first one out play was fast. Definitely should play this course.
Best hotdeal in the area. Fun layout. Bring your short game.
Sunday play, NOT GOOD
I play this course frequently & I have started noticing just one thing that really bothers me.. let me start with I can only play golf on Thursday or sunday... Playing this course on Thursday is fantastic every time I play... Sundays on the other hand are a mess, last 5 or 6 times I've played this course on a Sunday it is WAY overbooked & takes forever to play a round... I've been playing golf for 20+ yrs & I get it, everyone wants to play in Sunday & it's usually packed anywhere you go but don't book so many tee times that people are waiting on top of each other & it takes nearly 5 & 1/2 hrs to finish a round by myself on a sunday... Course is fantastic to play, conditions are great, clubhouse is nice, & even have really good food but really need to work on the Sunday booking issue.... Not just me either, I've talked to numerous people at the course on a Sunday that are just frustrated with the over booking & hideous waiting times between shots
Everything went well. Course in good shape for this time of year. Very friendly staff and good price. Will come again often.
How A Golf Round Should Be
Our foursome were the dew sweepers today and that's how we like it. No one to hold us up and we can finish around easily under four hours. The course was in good condition and the weather was cool but otherwise perfect. A great spring rate value at $25 on a Saturday morning.
Great value, great course!
Played this course for the first time after finding a hot deal for $17. Course was in great shape especially for this early in the season. Staff at the grill/bar was extremely friendly! Will definitely be returning to play at Windy Knolls
Good day to be out
The course did not have my reservation, but they honored it anyway. Busy place yesterday. They had sanded the greens, so putting was not great.
This course is steadily improving and is a lot of fun to play. Some of the greens have been damaged by wildlife, but most are interesting and receptive to good shots.The bunkers have been renovated and are well positioned. Friendly staff.
The only suggestion I have is to improve the rough, although I realize that this would slow down rounds.
