Windmill

Extremely fast greens, longest 6100 yards I've played, white tees didn't seem to match up with the scorecard. Good test from the right set of tees!

Was a scorcher

Course was in good shape considering the heat of the week. Pace was so so just very inconsistent on the way people were sent out, walkers, riders, twosomes, threesomes, foursomes. Overall good day and Normal conditions for the course aside from the tee on 11 which might as well have been cut with a walk mower in someone’s back yard.

Wonderful Venue

Few courses offer the kind of challenge you'll encounter at Windmill Lakes. For those getting older and losing distance off the tees, you have a variety of tees to choose from. Could work on setting up some Senior tees that are longer than 300 yards , but not 375 yards. Really need something in between.

Very Pleasant

Beautiful day to enjoy an excellent course.
Course was very well maintained and was very challenging.
The only downside was the pace of play. The group in front of us was very slow. They were playing some sort of two man team competition. They were never ready to play the next shot.
Eventually they were a hole and a half behind the group in front of them. Luckily they eventually let us play through. Would be nice if a ranger was monitoring the situation.

Windmill

Very nice course for the area. Pace of of play can be tough at times. Id stay away on the weekends as it is always very busy. But I always enjoy playing here, challenging greens, long par 4’s. Alot of hazards. This course is not suited for beginners, but you can still come out and have fun. Almost always very well kept, can get a bit wet at times so watch out for when it rains. But I have always had great experiences here.

Ranger Rushed Us

Pace of play was somewhat slow (waited to tee off on every hole through hole 7) 2 groups ahead had a small child playing, nothing wrong with that, my group was out enjoying the day.
On hole 9, the ranger informed my group that we needed to hurry up and catch up to the group Infront of us, that there was a 2 hole gab between us and them. What he didn't realize is that the group with the child left after 9 holes, and the group in front of us was inside getting food at the turn. This made us feel like we didn't have time to get a snack at the turn. The ranger continued to check on us 2x more and we felt rushed the rest of the round. As anyone knows, its not helpful having a ranger in a cart watching you tee off, asking how long you've been playing the game of golf, its insulting actually (shot bogie golf through the front 9). Really made the remainder of the round not fun. Typically I really enjoy this course, as they really pay attention to pace of play, but this past Saturday's experience didn't sit well with my group.
