Windy Knoll Golf Club
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 day in the links !!!
Windy Knoll is a beautiful links style course. The course is in great condition for this early in the year. The sand traps were all raked and in good condition ( unfortunately I was in them more than I wanted to be). The staff was very friendly and pleasant. The rate of play was very good. It has a nice facility if you care for a beverage or food after your game.

Excellent greens. The holes themselves are cut as sharply as I've seen on a public course. Nice clean edges. Only negative was the snack bar was closed and we played a morning round. Fun layout.
Hello, JTS58. Thank you for visiting us at Windy Knoll Golf Club. We appreciate your 4-star rating and review. We hope you join us for another round soon.
Back nine is always an issue. Foursomes taking 30 min at the turn then you have 5 groups backed up on 10. Has happened repeatedly.
Nice course just lacking some course management and amenities. The ranger is there for free golf.
We were delayed by two and a half hours after very heavy rains and wind, but the course was in great shape. We’ll be playing here again.

The course really, really needs to get the geese under control. Holes number 1 and number 5 are a mess. Also did not care for the fact that carts are no longer allowed in the parking lot

Lovely day at windy knoll
Along with a friend and an excellent early rate and time from golfnow, we ventured to windy knoll for a morning of great weather golf. We were pleasantly surprised to see that WK continues to look after their course. The greens were excellent and tee boxes we’ll laid out. I cannot believe I am saying this but they have left the heather grow so that the course truly resembles a links style of course which is the upside. The downside is if you hit an errant shot you are severely punished by losing your ball in the heather, which is impossible to find it is so thick with undergrowth. But, that is the way it should be. The greens were fast and play moved right along. Worth the 45 minute drive at $4.50/ gallon of gas.

By stopping players from going to there car because some people would carry on coolers stopped everyone, and there restrooms on the course, there wasn’t any, or should I say all out of order for weeks, if that’s true then I’m would of bought in port- e -pots, I don’t plan on playing this course again unless amenities improve, too
Many nice course around to put up with all windy knolls lack of serves

There is no restroom in working order on the whole course, although we rented a cart we had to carry our bags from the parking lot to the cart, the parking lot was block so we couldn’t take the cart to the car, was told it’s to keep people from carrying coolers on to the course , I asked how much was a beer and was told, $3.75, I didn’t buy any, too high of price, I wish I could of bought a gatorade or a water but was afraid to ask what the price was, I don’t drink beer anymore, there too many courses around here to put up with this, I’m going back to read, woodland, Lakeland, liberty hills, and I’m sure I’ll try other courses but I won’t be back to windy knol, didn’t have a good time, felt like I was being watched, not for me
Hello, garysizemore. Thank you for leaving us a review. We are sorry to hear your experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you will give us another try in the future. Thank you for choosing Windy Knoll Golf Club.
Great Course Design
Wow, this course is designed really well. Even when there aren't trees, they use some higher grass to really frame each hole. The greens were smooth and rolled well. We were paired with another duo which was fine because it was a foursome pace all day on Father's Day.
My friend and I were really impressed and definitely want to play here again.
Your feedback is important to us, bassplayer7770. Thank you for sharing your 5-star experience. We look forward to seeing you again at the course soon! Thanks for choosing Windy Knoll Golf Club.
