Rating 73.8

Located just outside of Columbia, The Windermere Club sits along the banks of the lake that it takes its name from. Pete Dye designed the golf course, crafting a number of memorable holes. It's his only design in the Midlands. No two holes are alike on this challenging layout, so expect to use every club in your bag. The golf course offers a variety of risk-reward opportunities that will appeal to both low and high handicappers. There are also five, and sometimes six, tee boxes on every hole, making the golf course even more appealing for any skill level. The fairways are generous but lined with mature hardwoods and there are strategically placed bunkers to contend with. Golfers at The Windemere Club will also encounter subtle but tricky elevation changes and several lakes and ponds.

Not worth it for the money

The worst part about our round was a cart died on us...on the 5th hole. On 18, another cart died. Really really ridiculous.

Not currently in good shape

It rained recently, but not for long at all. The course did not drain at all, and most of the bunkers were pools. Usually love the course but would not have gone out there today if I knew the shape it was in.

Wonderful Round at The Windermere

Great day for 18 at Windermere. Course layout and challenges are some of the best I've played locally. Water and Sand abound. Challenging, but fun. Course is in progress of repairs to some areas such as tee boxes and greens. Weekday play for $30, have played similar nearby for a few dollars less. Can't wait to play again.
