Not a nice welcome
We booked on for a 2 ball at his course, never again the management where delighted to charge us another £10 as wee arrived 20 mins early to set up, the person in charge had no welcoming skills at all, he then proceeded to follow us out on to the first tee and watch us as if we where up to no good. Never again will I play or pay for this course, there’s far better courses all over Scotland compared to this
Even with the rain the course underfoot held up really well and was in great condition. Our main issue was directions between holes as we finished the 4th then couldn't locate the 5th? For visitors it would be really useful if a map of some description could be handed out on check in at the shop just to aid this. Apart from this had a great round and very nice course
First time playing the course and really enjoyed it challenging throughout especially the long par 4’s. Excellent value for money and would definitely recommend and play again
What a brilliant course and what a brilliant week we've had playing courses within a 25min drive that I never knew existed!! Thanks to the wonders of Golf Now we started the week in Rouken Glen, which we loved, but loads of leaves, so loads of balls found that we weren't looking for!! but quite a bit of trudging thru mud, although the course itself is in good nick, moresoe the pathways between holes. Then onto Fereneze, Wowoweewa!!! Beautiful day, incredible views, stunning course!! Best greens we have played on this year, and a lovely crowd, get there early tho, car park space is limited!! (Cheese&Pickle and Chicken Tikka Rolls recommended ) And then today at Windyhill, lovely locals/members, nice to have the use of driving nets and a practice putting green for a change!, terrifically challenging course in tip top condition, sandy greens but well kept...well done!!
Challenge for All
Well maintained course. A challenge for all levels but somehow not an enjoyable one.. no one there to greet us albeit during Covid in mid October. We just went on long before our tee off. Course is hilly and the greens were very sandy but the time of year explains this. If you are not reasonably fit this could be a slog.
We didnt aee this in its best light.
Dont know if we will go back to see it in a better light.
The fairways were in impeccable condition, the greens were being prepared for winter maintenance but this is a lovely course and the scenery added to an enjoyable day on the golf course. It is hilly and would be even more challenging in wet/windy conditions. Good Par 5's and deceptively tricky Par 3's.
Good course conditions but not the best layout
Warm welcome from the pro and very friendly members. Although it was a lovely sunny day the past week has been very wet. I was therefore very impressed that the greens were still quick and the mostly fairways in good condition. The course is hilly as the name suggests but the views are stunning.
The course layout means that there are a lot of fairways that cross over or are right next to each other which means stray shots from yourself or other golfers slow down play significantly. Also where the next tee box is is sometimes not logical and there is no map on the score card or clear signage. We ended up using an app to find where we should be going. At the end of the course there are a few short par fours with the fairways almost blind. These are great fun to play but really slowed the pace of play down further.
We weren’t in a rush and had a great round. If you don’t mind hills or taking your time this is a great course.
First time playing windy hill was taken back by the course one word of warning it a true test done great driving hole
This course definitely lives up to its name it’s very hilly and rather windy.
Fantastic condition and every person we met was friendly and helpful.
The only thing is finding your way from tee to Tee was a bit hard they could put signs in to help first timers!
First time playing windyhill thought it was a great course tho ita tough course with it going up a hill but a great layout definitely be back soon
Course was in fine condition and the people we came across were helpful and friendly. The course itself was in decent condition and seemed to be well looked after. My only complaint really would be that the layout isn’t what I enjoy. There was one hole, I think it was the 12th, was possibly the least enjoyable hole of golf I’ve ever played. Very strange layout and I struggle to find anything redeeming about that particular hole. Doubt I’d play again but that’s purely as it’s far far too hilly for me.
First Time @ Windyhill
Enjoyable course, especially the front 9. Couple of holes in the middle of the back 9 were questionable (12 thru 15), but then it is a lovely finish to the course. Greens very receptive after a good dumping of rain, but rolled fast & true. All in all an enjoyable afternoons golf and I would play it again. If you struggle with walking I would suggest a buggy, we walked round in a fourball in under 4 hours comfortably, but as the name suggests, it is a bit hilly at times.
Worth a visit
Nice course good condition and excellent value for money. Some stunning views over the city but still feels like the countryside.
Lived up to the name.
A good challenge with plenty of interesting holes and good exercise walking up and down the hill. A number of blind shots that would make the course even more enjoyable on return visits with the knowledge gained from a round already played.
Great Condition Course
Excellent course, but is slightly hilly, was tired when finished. Great views and well worth a visit.
