Winding Hills Golf Club in Montgomery is a challenging course that will give you some practice with your irons and test your short game skills. This formidable short course is much tougher than it appears. The designer, Steve Esposito, modeled the layout after Jeff Cornish's Blue Rock Course in Cape Cod. The narrow, tree-lined fairways require accuracy. Strategically placed sand traps frame the small greens and several water hazards come into play as well. The holes vary in length and each is unique from one another. You may be surprised to find that you have to use all the clubs in your bag. The ninth hole is arguably Winding Hills Golf Club's toughest. This par 3 requires a long and demanding carry to a green that's sloped back to front.

Towards the end of season but the course was in great shape as usual. Grass off fairways was a little thick making it hard to find ball at times. Crews busy blowing leaves off course.

Great value, beautiful little par 3. Great for working on your short game - EXCEPT when you can’t put due to aerating. Please, please please let players know before they book a game at this course.

WHGC is a great executive course with 3 Par 4s and the rest are Par 3s. The greens are often challenging and getting it close to the pin really matters on several of the greens. The course is very well kept and pleasant to be in its surroundings. The staff is very friendly. The rates are very reasonable. Also a great course to work on your short game.

"Basically a Par 3 course with poorly maintained Greens"

Aside from 3 Par 4 holes which are a little over 200yds this is basically a Par 3 course with many holes under 100yds. Although the greens keepers do a great job of providing a Zen Garden-like feel to the course which is very peaceful and easy on the eyes; they struggle with how to maintain greens and keep tee boxes flat. Got a deal on Golf now for $20 for 18 which is about where I'd place the value for this course. I would say it's a great place to work on your short game but the balls did not roll true at all on the greens. However you'll get a ton of chipping and pitching work. Cheers

The course is very nice. It is a great course to improve your iron play. I have difficulty with my short game so it was perfect for me. The greens are very rolly which makes the putting a challenge. Unfortunately it had rained the night before so it was a little wet but overall the course looked beautiful. I look forward to going back.

First of all I love this course. It has really helped bring my game to the next level because of my short game progress. If you need help with yours, this is the place for you. Very well kept and extremely nice views. Just because this course is short and mostly par 3s (only 3 par 4s), doesn't mean that this course is super easy by any means. It has holes that would challenge almost all non pro golfers just because of the tough greens alone, let alone extremely tough pin placement on a few holes that leaves extremely low room for error. I usually play best ball with two balls (if nobody is behind me and my partner of course) and i still have to make some tough putts to save par and bogeys just to put it in perspective a little bit on how challenging some holes can be. I really enjoy this course and for 20 dollars with a cart, theres really no beating the value. Its a solid hour from my house and i still manage to get to the course atleast once or twice a month. The only complaints I would honestly have are that the bar/restaurant isn't always open for some reason and that the ranger is extremely rude and condesending. The ranger doesn't seem to ask questions, he just tells you like hes on some type of power trip. Everyone else inside the pro shop or the bar/restaurant has always been super nice and professional so it's unfortunate that the ranger alone brings down my thoughts on the whole "staff friendliness." They 100% would've got a 5 outta 5 from me if not for the grumpy old ranger. All in all though, I would definitely recommend to any level golfer I come across. The Winding Hills course has definitely became one of my favorites since finding it last season. Hope this helps and hope you all try it out and love it like I do. You won't regret it.

the course is very well maintained and the holes are a great challenge for a beginner playing his first round, I was able to get a chip in birdie on 18 which really made the game fun, Hole 14 has a breath taking view that made me not want to play through. will definetly be playing this course again.
