Can’t Complain

Used the hot deal to play 18 with a cart for $23 at 11:10AM. You really can’t beat that! I usually shoot around a 96. While this course had a handful of short, easy holes, most of them were pretty challenging for someone like me. I really enjoyed it! Sure, there’s some crab grass on the boxes and some dead spots on the green but for the money I paid I’d happily play here again.

Needs a little work but not surprised

Can’t expect a ton when you pay $28 for 18 with a card on a beautiful Friday afternoon in September. Course is showing a lot of wear after a long summer of play. Greens are completely baked or dead in some areas, tee boxes either looked like the driving range or needed to be mowed badly, and fairways were alright but in some areas it was tough to distinguish between rough and the short stuff. Overall not bad for the price, but not the best round I’ve played in the past few weeks by far.

First impression

I can imagine there are many courses that don’t have ranges. For me, that’s a problem. I play better once I have warmed up and synced my tempo for the round. Hitting clubs cold sucks. Or going through three or four holes and swinging the big stick for the very first time. Pace of play was a bit too slow. But that’s just the average golfers normal. Course had some area that were pitiful. But on par with the price I thought which was reasonable. We walked the course and it’s about 7.5 miles from the blue tees depending on your accuracy. But it’s golf. So it was fun to play. Try it

Hello and thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Winding Ridge Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Had tons of fun - tricky greens

Each hole had its own challenges and I liked the variety. It was a great price for 18 holes and it took us roughly 4 1/2 hours to finish. We're not pro golfers by any stretch so I'm sure a better golfer could finish it much more quickly! I'll definitely go again.

Friendly laid back course

Perfect course for beginner golfer or intermediate players. Pace of play is what you’d expect for weekend afternoon golf. An enjoyable day on the links.

Poor Customer Service

Was told that after only playing 6 holes that I couldn't get a rain check. Huh? This is one of them good ol boys network here. Never felt welcoming. Especially since my companion was Caucasian. Never again even if it was free of charge.

Don’t care about COVID.

If you’re a single: they make you ride with someone if they have the same tee time.

Bad ownership

Went golfing and it started storming unexpectedly. Booked through golf now and was told to ask for a refund through them. Owner refused to refund saying they only issue rain checks. Nightmare experience will never go back

Great Course!

And not just for the value! Full 18 holes, links style with some water in just the right places. Challenging enough for novice players, but not so much you can’t enjoy it. And a few holes with perfect placement of bunkers and water to make you question, “Should I go for it?” Definitely coming back...

Windy but fun.

Played eighteen holes by Terry Schill.
The wind was howling!!!!
Listed as 23 mph but gusting to at least 40. A dollar bill flew past me on number 12 so fast I couldn't catch it.
Terry Schill drove the short par four number sixteen ant three putted!!
This course is very fun. Bring your friends and expect to have a good time. Be careful playing the white tees at 6,054 yards they play longer. Fair warning.
