This is my second round at Wing Park. I paired up with a father and son for a nice round. The course was quite playable, even after a a lot of rain in this area.

I like the course because it offers a great variety of hole lengths (116 yds to 517 yds), playing 2,778 from the whites and 3,131 from the blues. It’s a nice change of pace from the Executive 9-hole courses that are great for iron tuneup.

Looking to go “old school” for a quick round? Check out Wing Park.

I really liked the layout of the course, and the pace of play was good. So was the price. My only issue is all the flags are white, so I had no idea where the pin was on the green. There were two holes where the pin was back, but I didn't know it. Had I known, I would have hit a longer iron into the green.

This course was pretty fun to play. The par 5's were pretty long. The course is pretty wide open and the holes are pretty tight to each other. I got there just in time as a the local high school was teeing off for a tournament. Fun course, greens were small. Course was in decent condition. Everybody was walking except for 1 guy who was in a cart. Took under 2 hours to finish the 9 hole course. Might be back if price is right.

I used to go to Wing Park multiple times a week because the price used to be comparable to the course condition. There are way too many dead grass areas, dirt and divots to ask even $15/person on golfnow let alone the un-discounted price at the clubhouse. A fun course to play but not worth more than 13 per 9 holes in its current state.

The only reasons I did not give 5 stars is we felt a little rushed for a party of 4 and the cost of the carts were high. $9.00 per person.

The golf course is great and I love having a quick round of 9 either before heading to work or on my way home after work. I don't mind getting paired with other players! The only downside of this "community" course is that at times they pack T-times one right after another, with little time in between. Cart riders should only be allowed if in groups of 3 (threesome) or 4 (foursome); twosomes and singles should be forced to walk. This last time I had 2 foursomes and 1 threesome ahead of me, once I caught up, things got slow; then another single "riding a cart" caught up behind me. Really? A single riding a cart when there are 2 foursomes, 1 threesome and a walking single ahead? Sometimes those things just don't make sense! Other than that, this course is a great community course and I'd recommend it to other people!

Nice course to walk. Back to back 5's was fun. 116 yard par 3 more challenging than expected. Upkeep of grounds was above average. Extremely friendly staff. Pro shop was a bit bare with food/merchandise. Overall a nice place to play.

The course is nicely maintained but lacks the common courtesy of yardage stakes. There are the occasional sprinkler heads with yardages but no 200, 150 or 100 yard markers. Bring your range finder or make your best guess.
