First round of the year. Paid $60 through golf now. Have paid less last season and previous seasons. Prices were $40-50 last season through GolfNow.

The course conditions were decent. The greens were not as good as in previous years. Still playable and not bad but last year they were in noticeably better shape at this time. They had some scarring and brown areas through out the round.

Pace of play was good even though it was busy. Staff were somewhat friendly. The beer cart girl and ladies serving food and refreshments were very nice. The front pro shop staff were okay but could improve on their friendliness/helpfulness.

Starter and marshalls were friendly and informative.

Overall I like Wildwinds course layout and it usually has good value. For $60 a round and the drive out to Centre Wellington I might be inclined to golf elsewhere seeing as I live in Milton 45mins away. There is a lot of courses that are better in conditions and for $70-80 that are within 5-10km.

I would be glad to see prices more in the $45-50 range for what this course has to offer and where it is located.

Hope this review helps people make the best decisions when looking to book a round.

Our golf group enjoys playing this course 2-3 times every year, when a Hot Deal is available- even though the location is a one hour+ drive each way from our home base. Wildwinds has an interesting layout, is usually in excellent condition and even has some substantial elevation changes.

Although the weather was cold it did get better as the day went on, but this has no bearing on how well the course played. The greens were running nice, the fairways were nice and green and fairly dry. Did not have any occasion of walking or hitting on saturated fairways. Was a nice course to play on for the start of the year.

Our first outing in the spring and the first time at Wildwinds. We had a wonderful day and the weather was spectacular. The course for only being open a week was in great condition. The greens were fast for spring conditions. We will definitely be going back.

Have played this course many times and continue to enjoy it. The layout is great and always in very good condition. The rental golf cart I used was very dirty (all of them ready for use) and the sand traps have too many rocks in them. Despite the sand traps I will continue to come and enjoy this course.

Great course normally, today was wet wet wet. Rains heavy day before. Cart Path only, fairways very wet, greens hadn't been cut or rolled. Just got the course open. Two weeks ago had 6 inches of snow.

They did a great job to be open this early.

Always great, we don't always play great. Traps need attention for sure, too full of rocks, won't play from them, don't want to damage wedges. Still good shape otherwise, greens fast fairways plush. Today was cold and a little rain, played quickly 3.5hrs

Mid-October round and in great shape except for a couple of wet spots. Almost empty on a windy and cool Monday morning so no problem with pace of play. Greens were excellent. Checking in was fast and no wait from starter to tee off. GPS was a must have playing for first time and out of course guides in pro shop. Couple of blind tee shots but ample landing areas.

First time playing the course. Based on the reviews I was hoping for a better experience. The hot deal made it worth while though. The starter was a tad bit rude when we asked questions about our threesome being paired with a single. We were simply asking and didn't need the attitude back. After things started the course played super slow due to a busy day. No marshall to move things along on a holiday Monday. No food or beverage cart. The fairways were average to good conditions but the greens hadn't been cut in a day or two which was unfortunate. Our round was almost 5 hours due to the slow play. Some fun holes though. It was nice to play but I don't think I'd drive out there again. I'd rather pay the extra money to play a better course closer to the gta.
