Jim was so helpful and kind - went out of his way to get us on the course. Dot Foelber Paul is 92 and I am almost 91 but we play better ball and keep moving so it was a pleasure to be able to move along - all the other golfers kept up the pace and we did not have to wait at any hole - which is rare. - we finished in less than 3 hours

I don’t think it’s an unreasonable request to inform customers BEFORE they pay for green fees, or even head out on tee number 1, that half of the course has “shortened greens” and under repair.

Decent course most of the time, but the greens on the front nine (as they disclose) are in such bad shape right now that three holes have temporary greens. Once that is worked out, the course will be much more pleasant to play. This said, they could stand to move the forward tees up ~20 yards on at least two of the par 3's on the back nine, which are 178 yards in length - a bit much for forward tees.

I’ve been playing this course for 33 years and the condition of the front nine greens are embarrassing. Even the putting green is closed. The course should be closed until the greens are repaired. The reduced rate they are charging isn’t reduced enough. Winter Pines greens use to be spongy and fast. The course had temporary greens last year while new geeens were installed. What a waste of time and money that was. I’m sure Mr P is disappointed in the way the course looks right now. I will only be going to Winter Pines for lunch. Best dogs in town.

Usually like this course but there were 3 holes that the green was off limits so they spray painted a “green” in the middle of the fairway that you had to use and the greens that were set up to play on were in very bad condition the fairways were really nice though

My previous review was "Negative".

Now I must upgrade my review to "Cautious Optimism" because management has embarked on a total overhaul of the front 9 greens, starting with #6 & #7.

And it looks like they are going about it the right way, i.e., going deep, creating a good base and good natural drainage.

When they get to #2, a very short par 4, I hope they will move the tee back to make it longer and to also replace the 2 bunkers guarding the green.

The front 9 was horrible. The greens aren’t greens. They are basically just sand and it’s been like this for the last couple of times we have played. Now the greens are so bad they have a few that are under construction and you’re putting on a fairway. We will not play here again until the course condition gets better.

Saying trouble with the front 9 greens is an understatement. They are missing 2 greens completely. Losing yardage on a course that’s already small. Ask to play the back 9 twice and avoid the front for a while.

I have played this course several times and was always pleased with the conditions. This time, however, the greens were in terrible condition. Normally, I would have expected to be informed of these conditions before paying. In this case I didn't find out about the conditions until I actually ran into them on the course. Not acceptable.
