Beautiful, Fun, and Challenging Course

We have a regular foursome that always walks. We teed off at 8:15 on Sunday 8/4/19 and finished at 12:10. The course was in awesome shape and the marshals kept it moving. This course is beautiful. There weren’t many other walkers, which is a shame because we commented several times about how the next tee boxes were normally very close to the previous greens. Plus, I think a first time player who rides won’t totally appreciate how beautiful the course is. It’s not the easiest course to walk but there were still a few times that we had to wait - but nothing out of the ordinary. The fairways were perfect and the greens were quick but not unfair. There are plenty of tee box choices for all levels of golfers. We’ll be back. I highly recommend this course.

Horrible Experience

I’ve played this course several times and love the layout. Unfortunately today’s experience was not what the course deserves. It started with the pro shop where the person who checked us in was clearly unhappy that we were there and made no effort to hide it.
The starter got us off within 15 minutes of our tee time. They had one of their regular groups was larger than expected.
The pace of play was very slow. The group ahead of us lost contact with group in front of them by the third hole. A “Marshall “ would drive by but was not at all interested in doing anything.

Left to right....

Awesome course! Really worth playing. Makes you wish you lived nearby.
I caught it after a rainy week near the end of the season. The zoysia grass on the fairways was starting to shut down for winter, making it dry, yet the fairways were wet. Odd combination...
Still...wow. A great course for the $$, or at any price. Interesting layout. Great greens. Awsome. Will really test you. Bring your fade or lefty draw. Sadly my draw wanted to be a hook... the course won.
Wonderful staff!
Three issues... 1) They were out of range balls. I like to warm up and dial in... couldn't. 2) there is no GPS in cart. Yardage markers are few and questionable. 3) Too many twosomes. The pace of play could have been better.

WinterStone good and bad

Beautiful course...but they had so many playing at once. They paired me off with two other guys who just dragged and dragged each hole. We had to let 4 groups go ahead of us. I wish I had taken off on my own..very frustrating and over 5 1/2 hrs to play due to so many people. I may try it again but will go it alone or not at all....

My son loves playing this course when he comes to visit. Greens were a little rougher than normal. The staff forewarned us when we arrived. We still had a great time.

A little disappointed

Played Winterstone last year and was impressed. This year.. not so much. First, not sure what was wrong with the staff, but all inside the pro shop were very unfriendly.. no greeting or have a great round. Just processed payment. The starter/marshals were very friendly and helpful. Overall the course did not seem to be in the same great condition as last year. A few greens were in bad shape and playing the course for the second time realized many holes has the basic same layout... Up and down hill with narrow landing zone.

Good shape

Winterstone is in great shape. The greens were smooth, fairways and tee boxes were great and the rough wasn't over grown. This course has a nice layout. The pace of play was good on a crowded Sunday morning. Our foursome played in just over 4 hours. There was very little waiting to hit a shot, if any.

Awesome Course!!!

Played in March so the fairways are not green yet but they were in great shape. The greens were in good condition. The greens are very challenging and fast the day we played. This is one of the nicest Courses in The metro.

Long walk

The course was in great shape but the cart path only added 45 minutes the the round. Even hitting good shots you had 100 -150 yard walk to your ball so you can imagine what it was like for a poor shot.

Windy, warm winter day

Winterstone is a good layout with various challenges for players of all levels. A midweek winter round was played on a warm and windy day. The course was busy which led to some waiting between shots. Our round took an even four hours. The grasses are still dormant in the fairways and rough. The greens were fair. The speed of the greens was down a little but it is expected for this time of year. With 5 sets of tees you could have drivers and long irons or drivers and short irons for approach shots. Hills and lots of trees add to the desire to keep the ball in the fairways. The staff is always 5 star. Can;t wait to go back!

MN senior

Left Minneapolis western suburbs 7 a.m. Sunday morning... teed off at Shoal Creek @ 1:30 p.m. Played Winterstone on Monday. I give both courses 4 star ratings. They're both on par with Links of Northfork or Willingers in the Minneapolis area (Rush Creek = 5 star). What fun it was for a Minnesota boy to get in a couple rounds the end of January. I'll be back!

Great conditions for November. Evil pin placements.

The course was in great shape. It's a fun and somewhat tough layout but fair. However, the pin placements for several holes were pushing the limits a bit too much. Several holes had the pin either in the middle of the steepest slope of the green or right on the edge and it really made those holes frustrating when you hit a couple of really good shots and have looks at birdie only to see your ball act like a boomerang if you don't hit an absolutely perfect putt.

Best Public Course in KC

Winterstone is a hidden gem. It's cared for like a private course with greens fees lower than many public courses. The only negative is the elevation change. I enjoy walking but it just isn't possibly on this hilly track.
