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.

Beautiful Course, terribly slow

This course is a great 9 hole course. It’s set up great and is beautiful. However, the rate of play is incredibly slow. Today I went off the tee at 8AM, the group in front of me was already on hole #3. No one was behind me so I took my time at the beginning hoping to give them a chance to get more ahead. It didn’t work, I soon had a party of 3 right behind me waiting on me because the threesome in front of me was taking there sweet time. It took me 2+ hours to play 9 holes by myself. The last hole I hit my tee shot an was 50 yards out. When I hit the tee shot the threesome was putting on the green. I believe this hole is about 230 yards par 4. I walked 175 yards to my ball and they were having a legit conversation on the green after they were all done putting like they owned the place. I was standing at my ball leaning on my bag, the threesome behind me was waiting to tee off, and these guys were having a full conversation on the green. I come here because people are always friendly, the staff is great, it’s a fair price and a nice course. But something has to be said to the members about the pace of play.

Perfect Day for Golf at WP9

Wednesday, 2/20/2019 was a perfect day to walk and play golf at WP9. The greens are well kept, the pace was good and the clients I was paired were easy going and did not leave me out of the conversation. Yes I do share with friends but they do believe me. I will take one day at a time.

JUST GO PLAY THERE!

A wonderful historic 9 hole course. Holes seem short but greens are the real challenge. I always enjoy playing there - like going back in time - very relaxing.

Model for municipal golf rejuvenation

This is my second time playing the Winter Park Golf Course or WP9 as it's more affectionately known. The course was in real trouble a few years back, but the local city government set aside money for a renovation.

Keith Rhebb and Riley Johns (course architects whi have learned from the likes of Coore/Crenshaw, Gil Hanse and Tom Doak) we put in charge of the project and did a great job. The took out trees, re-grassed the course and added tons of character to the greens. The course winds through the city of Winter Park, so there wasn't room to expand, but Johns and Rhebb added a lot of interest and strategy to a landlocked routing that now require a lot of thought and different shots.

The conditioning is good for a public course that gets lots of rounds,. WP9 encourages walking and has a great spot outside the club house to enjoy a cold drink after the round.
