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.

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!

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

Course was in great shape considering it is early spring. Greens rolled well and in good shape. The pro checking in was not that friendly. I was 10 minutes late because I made wrong turn exiting highway 68.

Great course. Is challenging and great layout. For being the first nice weekend of the year the course was in great condition. Pace of play was good and well maintained. I will be going back multiple times this year. Also has a bar and grill next to the club house if you need something after the first 9.

Drove an hour to play because we like the course, only to get stuck behind a 5 some. Stopped in pro shop at turn to Express my concerns and was told well they play here all the time. So, upsetting other players because 5 guys play there all the time makes it right? Instead of leaving we went around them to 11 and played around and finished on 10 while the 5 some had 5 groups backed up. This might be our last visit to windy knoll as a result.
