Windy Knoll Golf Club is known among locals as being one of Springfield's best public golf courses. The course was built in 2001, though you would not be able to tell from its traditional links design. It manages to be a classic links golf course while still being a challenge. The site was originally a horse farm and the design incorporates some of the features from the terrain's former use. Water hazards come into play frequently throughout the golf course and there are trees and rough lining the fairways. Golfers will find many risk-reward opportunities on the course, one good example being the par-4 eighth. This hole plays into the prevailing wind and if you miss your drive, you may find yourself in one of the eight bunkers surrounding the undulating green.

Great Course for a Great Price

Played on a beautiful day early in the morning. We were the second group off so it was a great pace. The course was in tremendous shape, greens were a bit sandy and bumpy but fairways and rough were in great shape. Top quality public course in the area.

Excellent course

Played every club in my bag...played the white tees. Not much wind today compared to the last time that I played here, but it was challenging, and made getting par or better more enjoyable.

Overplayed

The course did not appear to be well maintained. Course rough was weeds not grass. Play for our group of 2 was behind a foursome who had a coach and who all gathered in front of the green on 9 and had a 10 minute meeting. Being inconsiderate is not the fault of the golf course but they had no one out that I saw managing play.

Some of the best greens in Dayton

The course has a great layout with a lot of variety on its par 3’s, 4’s, & 5’s. The greens are always very well manicured and run in 9-10ft+ stimp speed. The facilities are well managed and the staff is very attentive to running quality operations. The only critique I can provide is that the driving range has no targets.

Definitely one of my favorite tracks in the area!

Great course, great carts, terrible hot dog.

Course is great, well taken care of. Would definitely play this one again. Staff really friendly and inviting. However, the hot dog was terrible and wouldn’t recommend. Bar/food is expensive and not good tasting.

Great golf though.

Great April morning at windy knoll

Played as a single and moved right along behind a twosome on a cool sunny non-windy April week day morning. The tees were the n good shape, fairways fine, rough as it should be. The traps have had little attention but were playable. The greens were fast, to my liking. I was surprised there was no Spongies in the cups. I felt the course was in great shape. The back nine had a foursome and a twosome that were gracious in separately allowing me to play through. It was a 2 and 3/4 hour round. With a Golfnow reward and exallent hot deal made the opportunity to play so very inticing. I thoroughly enjoyed myself not having to look after others balls or wait on anyone hunting golf balls. This is always a treat to play here.
