Great course

Played this course today. It’s october. Cold okay? It was cold. Had a frost delay. I understand because it’s cold. I was the only guy playing. First one all day and wow was it worth it being cold. Beautiful course. I have a natural “draw” so the water was never an issue for me. The carts are so comfortable they make nearly touching 100 an absolute pleasure. Amazing fairways. Was nice to hit off of them twice. Rough was great. Either there weren’t many trees letting go of their leaves or the staff does a great cleanup job which is appreciated this time of year. Great time and great course. Play it!!!

Winding Ridge-can be great

I’ve always been frustrated playing Winding Ridge. It’s a course I feel has the potential to be great, but too often I feel like it’s poorly maintained and pace of play is usually a nightmare.

Today was different, the course was in fairly good condition, though the fairways all looked a little too thick. And perhaps b/c it was just my friend and I playing, we finished in a tidy 3 1/2 hrs. That’s easily 1 1/2 hrs less than it usually takes to finish 18.

Fun course

I really like this course. Just sucked I got stuck behind a 4 some playing really slow and they wouldn’t let me play thru. Nothing bad to say about the course though. Just happened to run into so bad, slow players.

Great Course

This course may appear easier then it seems. Tough pin positions make a good drive with an accurate lay up essential to get off a hole with a good score. Greens and fairways are well maintained with great tee boxes to challenge any level golfer. Overall a fun course where the holes do not run next to each other.

Convenient location.

This was third time playing this course this year.

They have good specials on GroupGolfer.

Have played here since they opened in late

nineties. Course is in good shape and has

matured well. I have introduced many of

my golf friends to this course over the years.

Hot and no water

Everything about my round was better than acceptable - except that there was no water on the course - and the temp reached 90

Course is in great shape

Have played Winding Ridge for a number of years. It is a fairly long course with water on all but two holes. Yesterday was a windy day so it made the course even more difficult. I find after playing WR I play other curse much better as I find them easier to play. The ground keeping staff has done an exceptional job in keeping the course. The fairways are green and well kept. The greens are perfect. They hold your shot, so go for the pin. Dave, the pro, is always personable as well as the staff.

High value for the money!

Maybe not a perfect course, but sure is s value for the money! Well manicured and maintained bent grass greens and fairways for a very fair price. Almost new and well maintained golf carts. Enough challenge yet not overly inundated with hazards. All in all a bargain for the average golfer, but still challenging enough for the avid one.

Great for the Money

The course was in good shape overall. There were a few holes on the front and back that could use some work...mainly the fairways. The greens seem to be in pretty good condition overall. The course layout isn't my favorite, but it was only $35 on a weekend during peak hours...so I really can't complain. I played as a single, and didn't wait on a single hole..played in less than 4 hours.

Great Course, Roughs could be Better

The course layout was tough, but fair. The greens are very challenging with a lot of undulations. The fairways were in good shape, but the roughs were covered with dandelions and were unsightly. Getting rid of the dandelions would make the course really attractive to play.

Excellent course

The course can be challenging. There is water on all but two of the holes. It is also long. I find that after playing Winding Ridge that I play other courses much better. Playing this course has really improved my game. The staff is always friendly. The course is well maintained. The fairways and greens are always nice. Would highly recommend playing Winding Ridge, you will enjoy it.

Very good for the price

Just a very nice public course at a very reasonable cost. Plenty of hazards but not terribly difficult. Course is well sintained except sand traps are marginal. New carts are well maintained.

Nice Layout

The course is in decent shape for the rough winter, though as a previous review suggested, it has the hallmarks of limited care that the ownership group is known for - I.E. muddy bunkers, spotty fairways, patchy greens in spots. It's early in the year to be fair, but those sorts of problems are found in season at others owned by this group that I have played (Gray Eagle, Southern Dunes, Ironwood).

I did enjoy the layout though. It has its share of character. There are houses but they are far enough off that it would take a bad hook/slice to hit one. The number of ponds that were there and were in play surprised me, honestly. More than usually found on public courses in this area. Lots of knobs in the rough lining the fairway and greens. I enjoyed the 6-8 stretch of the course the most. 6 was a par 5 with 3 ponds in play on the left, 7 was lay-up tee shot and blind second par 4, and 8 was a neat little uphill par 3 in the trees. The course does do something I do not like by closing with a 260 par 4 (from the whites), 300 par 4, and risk/reward par 5 ~450ish from 16-18. I can foresee this being very backed up when it's busy.

But if you can find a deal for the course it's well worth a go. It ranks up with the others in the price range, like Gray Eagle or Fox Prairie or Pebble Brook. Say hi to the friendly dog that greets you at the clubhouse too!

Good course for the money

My home course. Fairways and greens are well maintained. Sand is typical public course type. Good layout providing average challenging ponds and mounds to contend with. Easy to navigate. Staff is friendly. Generally easy to get a tee time. New carts 2017. Well worth the fee.

Typical

Courses run by this group across the city are similar, thin fairways with not much grass and beat up, slow greens. The layout here is long and challenging, just the conditions of the course were not as nice as other options in the city. When you can get a good deal through Golf Now, I don't mind playing, but this course is never my first choice.

Winding Ridge

Took 3 1/2hrs to play 11 holes. Terrible pace of play. Too many tee times. Great course for the money.

Good all around

Good course layout, all around a good course, hills on the edges of the fairways makes for tough shots if your not in the fairway. Not sure if the AC was broke in the clubhouse or they were saving money. Good value. 25.00 hot deal
