Designed by Joe Lee this 18-hole semi-private course has beautifully contoured wide fairways . Sparkling lakes are abundant and the bunkers are strategically positioned on the open fairways and around the greens.

Great course & condition, definitely lacking in virus protection

Winston Trails is in excellent condition, course & greens. My only and major problem was an overwhelming lack of sanitization and protection at this time. It is the only course I'm aware of (right now), that has an open putting green...GREAT, BUT, people were on top of one another and very few worse masks). IN FACT the guys working outside were no wearing masks and when I mentioned it to the employee trying to find me a cart (all being used) he said "you don't have to wear a mask outside". And the cart...they took someones bag and items out and then told me to take the cart...BUT, not sanitized.
I loved the course and i will go back at a future time, but not until things change. I could go on and on, but it's useless. In a nutshell, "the care they took under these very difficult conditions was insulting."

Its good to be back on Winston Trails

This is an excellent layout with 1st taste greens that you can make as tough as you want through tee selection.

Hygiene is good, staff wears facemassks, single file in the clubhouse, no rakes etc. Pace of play is back to normal as I think groups were going out every 8-9 minutes. Driving range still not open but putting and chipping greens are.

Really nice to be back.

Course in great condition

Played 7 holes today after the rain. Course drained really well, no flooding anywhere. Tee box's, fairways and greens were 8.5/9 out of 10 for a public course. Plays longer than you think, really nice layout. Golf carts are fairly new and FAST! COVID 19 approved. Highly recommended!

Greens were running fast and true. Fairways dry and bare in places. Pace of play was 3 hours and 45 minutes—excellent anytime much less in season.

Slow Day at WinstonTrails

Course was very crowded. Carts were not available until shortly before you teed off and without being cleaned or stocked with more sand. We were sent out at about a half hour late on the back nine. Round took 5 hours. Other than that, course is in great shape.

Fun course for various skill levels

This course is large and maintained well. The fairways were solid and the greens were great. Staff were helpful and friendly. I'm a beginning golfer and this was a challenging yet forgiving course to play. Although there is a lot of water, the fairways are pretty big and I only lost one ball off the tee box on a par 3 over the water. All in all, a very fun golf course to play for the value and I will be back!

Lives up to the hype

Course is great from tee to green. Would gladly play it again from shorter tee boxes. Par 3 are too long for us geezers from the Whites
