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.

Every year I return to Springfield for the early fall weather and couple rounds at Windy Knoll. They never disappoint. The greens always roll true.
Worth the drive.
Played 9am prior to a charity tournament in 3 hrs. Staff had my cart ready for me when I got there. It's a 45 minute drive but my favorite course in the area on GOLFNOW. Great layout with lots of variety.
Windy was perfect
Played with a bud in re afternoon taking advantage of a great rate and an afternoon reward. A little bit of a drive to Springfield but we’ll worth it. Weather was ideal with little wind. The course was immaculate right down to the raked sand traps....pro shop staff was very friendly and had a note wanted everyone to attempt a four hour round. There were onsite rangers whom I called upon to deal with a 6 em. Although the 6 em has already invited our 2 some through and then were addressed by the ranger. The ranger asked if we were invited to play through, which we were.. We had a three hour round. The traps did come into play and were properly maintained. This course is well worth the travel and green fee paid. No disappointments....
Pin placement challenge
Had a great cheeseburger on the patio before we played. Nice views of the 18th hole par 3. They started us on #10.not sure why. But it was ok. Course was in great shape for this time of year. Pin placement here can lead to some tricky putts. Greens are pretty fast. Challenging course with some water in play. I will play here again.
Fun golf course
Didn’t like it the first time I played it about 10 years ago. But, the more I played Windy Knoll, the more I liked it. Always good shape and fun to play.
Not Bad at All
Nice course. The front nine had the bent grass fairways the back nine seemed to be mostly bluegrass and some areas not in good shape. The greens were pretty smooth and rolled at a good speed. I didn’t notice too many ball marks as some had reviewed. The grass on the greens looked maybe a little thin and seemed to have very little sand for drainage. That being said they still played very nicely as did the entire course. Not a criticism but they did not have the black tees as listed on the card. The gray tees seemed to be a hybrid of black and gray tees. Such as gray positions on par 4’s and black boxes on par 3’s. All in all a nice public course.
Course getting a lot of play, had to wait on cart. In good shape, but a little slow.
Back to front
Course was in great shape for mid August. They have been watering regularly. This course is a challenge but fair. Greens pretty nice except for golfers not real repairing ball marks.
As always we had a great time at Windy Knoll. Friendly staff greeted us, we got off a little earlier than our tee time, conditions were excellent, beautiful day, great experience. We plan on playing there often.
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.
