perfect at what it intends to be

the great film critic Roger Ebert once wrote that you should judge a film by what it intends to be.

by that criteria, Winter Park Golf Club fully succeeds at what it intends to be: a course that's playable for all skill levels off of the tee while still being challenging and interesting on the greens.

the reconstruction from a couple years ago was very well-done.

there's a warm and friendly environment here, probably brought along by the fact that nearly everyone walks, so it feels more social and old-fashioned, in a great way.

granted, tee shots aren't challenging here,. but the greens present enough interesting slopes that the better player will want to ensure that s/he hits his tee shot on the correct side of the fairway in order to have a good chance at birdie.

there's not much of a rough, per se, and the fairway isn't in immaculate conditions, nor does it try to be, nor does it particularly need to be. the greens are in spectacular condition, and they're large and offer a variety of hole locations for someone that intends to play here often. they're also often elevated, a rarity among 9-hole courses. and because they're elevated, a player that might see an easy hole off of the tee will be frustrated when his ball rolls over the back of the green and he has a difficult up and down for par.

the addition of some fairway bunkers (on one, perhaps), might make the holes a bit more interesting to look at off of the tee. a minor quibble, really. on the 6th hole, be sure to hit your drive down the left side, else you'll have a massive tree blocking your approach shot.

an excellent course to bring the kids to learn the game.

off the top of my head, I can't think of hardly any golf course that so seamlessly blends into a semi-urban setting. what other course offers the chance to take a 5-minute walk from the last hole to a street buzzing with great bars and restaurants? none that I can think of. In that way, the course is reminiscent of The Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland, the home of golf which seamlessly blends into the busy town that encircles it.

the plethora of 5-star reviews speak for themselves. there's no locker room, but there is a spacious private bathroom with a chair in case you need to change clothes.

golf could use more courses like this, courses that kids can ride their bike to, courses that are a 5-minute drive from hundreds of homeowners.

to fully enjoy this place, you have to have the right mindset. there's nothing wrong with getting the A+ treatment at a place like the Ritz Carlton, but you're not getting that here. You come to Winter Park for a casual round of golf.

Winter Park Golf Course is golf's version of playing sandlot baseball. And it's fantastic.

Pristine Course

This course is in pristine condition, it’s basically a nine hole walking course, rental pull carts are available. The greens are large, fast and just basically excellent. The fairways are large with no bare spots noted. There are 4 par 4s, 3 par 3s and 2 par 5s. The holes are basically straight and not too long. The only problem is sand traps. The staff was accommodating, knowledgeable and very friendly. I highly recommend this course will be back the next time I get a chance.

a local gem

course is in great shape, however #5 fairway is a steady stream of unfilled divots. May I suggest management display the fill bottles more prominently and STRESS their use by players. Would hate to see things go downhill from where they are now.

WP9 Keep Up The Great Work!

Course conditions are almost as great as they have ever been. Had a great round today shooting even par. Several maintenance workers were seen throughout the round blowing leaves, spraying weeds, and dressing tee boxes. Keep up the great work WP9.

It was ok, greens are tough

The layout is great: short but wide open. The course was pretty crowded but pace was brisk. Everyone was playing “ready golf” and getting off the greens in a hurry. Speaking of greens, they are difficult. Most are convex humps. My partner putted off the green twice (he’s not a bad putter). We also had to contend with fertilizer on the greens, too, but I think that was just bad luck rather than a recurring condition. This four has been on my bucket list for years. Glad I played it. Not in a rush to get back.

course is in great shape, don't think I've ever seen it in better shape. The group in front of us left fresh ball marks on every green they hit ... a sin considering how good the greens are. Fixed mine and THEIRS.
