WOW!!!

I have always given this course 5 stars just because I love the course! This time though, Windy Hill really was 5 stars! The fairways are in good shape, and the greens are in great shape, which enabled me to shoot the best 18-hole score of my life... -4 !! **** The new management has done an amazing job, making things better! (Even if the new owner is a Dallas Cowgirls fan!!!)

Windy Hill has everything

Today I walked and played 9 holes on the par 3 course for the first time. The tee boxes were in ok condition and they included a mat. The walking paths from green to tee box are a bit rough but ok. The greens and approach areas are in very good condition and the greens every bit as good as any in the Richmond area. . I played in the morning and they were damp from watering. I recommend walking the course and carrying a lite bag with 3-4 clubs and a putter that’s all you need for fun and some exercise.

Great for the value but overall was disappointed

First time. I booked on golf now a week in advance and they couldn’t find my reservation. They had a spot open and let us play. The course was overall good for the price but was disappointed that we had to skip over many of the greens because they were swarmed with hornets at a majority of the greens.

Course Looked Great

I have been coming here for a long while. The new owners must be putting money to improve the condition of the course. It has never looked better.

Greens: SOAKED, Tee Boxes: TRASHED, Golfers Beware!

I showed up to the course in my hot weather shoes, considering it was 90 and no calls for rain. On the first hole I quickly noticed how entirely SOAKED the greens and fairways were and proceeded to curse the course for destroying my shoes one step onto the fairway. I can understand some areas collecting more water than some but this was acceptable. On top of this, the greens keeper was absolutely DRENCHING the greens as I was about to Tee off. This happened on 4 holes. EVERY single green was almost unplayable due to standing water.

I can understand watering your greens in the morning, but do it before people tee off, its not worth peoples time or money if the ball stops rolling halfway to the hole or changes direction en route.

On top of this the Tee boxes were atrocious. I noticed mats on all of them and thought that was weird, it wasn't until later in the round I stood on one because the rest of the tee box was trashed. Standing on the mat was even more difficult because it was impossible to stand firmly on the ground, it being a mat on top of chopped up dirt.

Relieved I only paid $10 for 18. I think its an absolute crime they charge $50 for 18 on the regular.

Do I recommend: NO
Yes: to beginners or people learning the game
No: Golfers looking to play a round without the course conditions playing a major role in their score

Better , but irritating!

There was absolutely no reason why they had it cart path only!!! I get that they are trying to make the course nicer but at least rotate holes for cart path only!

In Need of TLC!!!

Although the greens are still pretty great, the tees are terrible and the Fairway was worse than I've seen in months. I have been told that there is new ownership so that things will be getting better. I hope so!!

Windy Hill Lake Cours

For my first time playing the Lake Course, I was impressed. I really enjoyed the layout and for the price it was great. However I struggled a bit on my drives because the fairways are a bit narrow. Other than that, there is a good variety of hole lengths and dogwoods and whatnot. The staff was incredibly helpful and when my buddy’s driver head flew off on the driving, they retrieved it and gave advice on repairing the club.

Aerated Greens

Aerating the greens on Easter Weekend was a poor call. They were basically unplayable.

Don’t get fool by the price

I booked a tee time for a foursome with a carts. I was told when we got there, they were out of carts and I could walk if I wanted to. Whats the point of booking a foursome w carts if they give them all out before you get there. Besides that, terrible course condition. Pick another place, don’t bother if your looking to play golf.

Great Course for the price

Windy hill is a great course to get out on anyday. They aren’t to strict on dress code or anything like that. It’s very reasonably priced and the greens are always comparable to any public’s course in the area. Would recommend to anyone trying to get a round in

Par 3 for Me

I didn't know what to expect when i pulled up and saw nothing but batting cages. They i saw the stadium like driving range (didn't even know there are such things as a sand bunker driving range). I could see my self using this facility, if i live in Richmond, as my practice before a round. I did enjoy the course little wet my day but ultimately we had fun so that works. Also hide your paintball guns in your golf back because once you start moving up the course you'll see in the woods that they have plenty of fortresses to defend your self. This place is the Jack of all sporting trades....

A little disappointing....

I have been playing Windy Hill for many years even as a 3 handicap because it's fun! What is it fun is how horrible the fairways are right now! I really hope that the new ownership puts some effort into fixing these because this is a great course and I am still recommending it!
