Grumpy staff goose poo on greens
I've been playing this course on Sunday evenings for about three weeks with my wife and young son. They have been blocking off major sections of fairway to repair turf. The remaining holes that are not blocked off are poorly maintained. Outside of the fairway, the grass is so high, it feels like the ball should be marked out of bounds. The ninth hole was so covered in goose poop, we couldn't even putt without stepping in it or having our ball go through it. Two weeks in a row, I requested to play the back nine holes with my family and we were told we had to play the front nine. This evening, the staff was rude and told us we had to play the front nine holes once again and questioned us and asked "don't you guys have trouble getting nine holes in?" My family and I play nine holes in about two hours.
Always a great trip over to Springfield to play this track 2-3 times per season.
However due to some serious turf & grass problems the course was not in very good shape vs. previous outings. Hopefully they will correct whatever issue they are having with the turf before we return next season. Given those conditions we experienced on Saturday I would think either a pre round notification would have been in order or a discounted fee to play would have been in order.
Was disappointed that there were no diagrams of the holes at each t box. No water fountains either so bring something to drink. Great Course, very challenging but slow play.
Windy Knoll is always enjoyable
Great weather, good pace of play. Only issue in course condition was the first hole fairway. A large swath of turf is currently being replaced and was roped off. Of course, my drive was right down the middle in the dead turf, LOL.
The greens were pretty quick but had quite a few un-repaired ball marks. (no fault of the course, just lazy golfers). I just booked another round for tomorrow. See ya there.
The course was miserable this date
It had rained most of the week before this and play was cart path only. There were many large areas roped off that you could not play in or ride your cart in. That made for lots of walking between ball location and cart path. Having to move your ball from the roped off parts of the fairway, over to the side, resulted in having to hit from a less advantageous position — resulting in a less optimal final score.
In Windy Knolls defense, I have played there many times in the past and the course has usually been in great shape. The wetness, overseeding and large roped off areas and cart path only combined to make it a very miserable experience. And the course wouldnt allow me to reschedule my paid Golf Now voucher. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!
Grounds crew is doing a great job.
The greens have been maintained pretty great this summer considering the amount of play the course gets. They are even speeding up a little again. Keep up the good work!
So why are there 100 geese on number 1 and 9? That is no exageration! They are destroying the grass around the pond and the rough/fairway on 9 and there are droppings everywhere on both holes. I cant decide if its more gross or sad... They also decided to aerate the greens, again... They were soooo slow it was ridiculous. I have played here before and I have never seen it in such poor shape. They put up signs that says to fix ball marks. There is a ranger that just drives around and looks for golf balls. Why wont he fix ball marks on the greens since he wont encourage the slow group ahead to keep pace! The fairways are so patchy, and only some of the bunkers had sand in them. This was not worth the $45. Get rid of the geese, mow the greens, fix the fairways. Save yourself $20 and go play Reid North!
Haven't been there for a few years but course is still great. We had to stay on cart path which is annoying however it keeps course nice. Greens held and putted great. Fairways good. Worth your time for sure.
Windy Knoll is one of my favorite golf courses in the Dayton/Springfield area. It has a great layout with a nice variety of holes. It has some really challenging par 3's, especially #13 the long downhiller. The course was in great shape when I played. Only negative was the goofy ranger who decided to walk up on the green and stand by the flag as I hit my approach shot into the 1st hole. Not sure why he thinks that's ok or needed...he should of been ahead of me trying to speed up a few slow groups. Still can't wait to come back and play again!
one of my top 5 in the Miami valley for under 30$
Through GolfNow or other specials you can normally golf for $30 or under 18 holes in a cart. full Disclosure I was able to get a hot deal off golf now for $14 a round after taxes and fees it ended up being 17.47 per person. It was hot and dry the day we golfed and the course played like it was glass. I was able to get 2250 Yards More roll out in the fairways and the greens were rejecting anything that had any paste to it whatsoever coming in. But I absolutely love this course it was 95 degrees but it was still Breezy enough that it felt cool or at least bearable. The food at the turn is really good they have a small menu for golfers that are needing to make a quick turn but they also have a full restaurant, club sandwich was good but a little pricey. If you want to work on you're putting on greens that have major brakes and are rolling what I assumed was 1 million on the stemp meter. This is your course. The rough was not too bad but once you got to the third and fourth cuts it was by by golf ball. I have played this course for over 10 years however a few years ago they switched the nines and now you end on a par 3 over water downhill not a fun shot especially when the prevailing wind is normally in your face. It used to end on a nice long par-5 that was a fun hole to play. I wish they would switch them back in his kind of dampened my excitement for this course
Fun course, some concern about conditions
Windy knoll is always a fun course to play. The grass on the course has some strange fungus looks like; not sure what thats about, but just noticed this issue this year. Colors of the grass differ throughout the course and different types of grass throughout, almost looks like weeds or something. Value ok for the money compared to other courses in the area.
Pace of play was ok for a Sunday. Greens seemed to be slower than I remember than a few years ago. The clubhouse and snack bar are great, excellent job!
I'll be back in a month or so to see if the conditions improved.
Well maintained for a public course
Greens very large
everything fine except 2 carts cut in (not from behind us) with 2 golfer with no shoes and no clue as to what they were doing.
Windy Knolls has the look and feel of a private course. Great layout and challenging links style course. enjoyed playing here and will play again.
