AWESOME

While the terror of the Coronavirus pandemic rages the crew at Winter Pines offers a very safe refuge! The carts are sanitized and hand sanitizers are available. There is no gatherings permitted. They have removed the rakes for our safety and foam inserts for each hole so the balls don’t drop too far so players don’t have to remove the flags on each hole. Thank you all.

We have played this course before but will not be back. It's playable from any tee box but the fairways are soft and you get little roll on your drives. Course was pretty wet following a mild rain. Pace of play was slow. Four par 3s in a row on the back slow it down as well .

Great value great course

My wife and I played 18holes this week. The course was in good condition and the staff friendly and helpful.
The course is great for both good and moderately skilled golfers. My wife enjoyed the course as well. We finished in 3.5 hrs. I liked the course layout but think there should be less par 3s(5 on the back nine). On the other hand, the course allows for working on your short game. Par 3s are About 200 yrds or better. Since I didn't hit most of the greens with my driver , chipping and putting is important on the back nine. Fun course. Careful....keep the carts on the course or they will electonically shut dowen the cart which surprised me. A quick call to the clubhouse got me going again....electroncally!!

Just an okay place

The pro shop gent was sort of rude and made for a poor start. They have improved this place somewhat since the change of hands last year but the pace of play is still very slow. The fairways were okay, the tee boxes better and the greens decent. The bunkers were a disgrace. All in all I'd have a tough time recommending this facility.

Friendly, Friendly and Warm

I made a huge mistake. I thought I had booked for Friday, and accidentally booked a prepaid 9 for Thursday for two couples after lunch and shopping in Winter Park.

Imagine, I showed up a day late just at the start of Winter Pines fully booked Friday Scramble with an expired paid reservation. They could have, and would have been right to turn us away, but without argument or negotiation, we were able to play around my dumb mistake.

They accommodated us quickly and kindly, let us on immediately on the back 9. We had a great time. The course is fun, fair and like the people running the place Friendly and Kind.

The layout is simple, the back 9 is par 31, loaded with Par 3’s that are long for the ladies and older guys. The carts are equipped with GPS that includes pacing of play and avoidance of forbidden zones.

The course is in good condition, there is lots of trouble, but it’s fair trouble. The greens are interesting and challenging in places.

After our round, one of the kind friendly people who could have kept our money and turned us away, ran out to make sure we enjoyed the round and wanted to come back.

You get more than you pay for here at Winter Pines. You get an old school feel of community and simple decency that modestly delivers value and enjoyment.

This is what at golf can be, great fun in a pretty and friendly community feel course. We will play it again and again. I must have said “What a friendly place, what a friendly course” a dozen of more times. No ego, no attitude, this place just wants to be your friend and you deserve to play in a friendly place.

WP18

Had never played Winter Pines over the years due to some not so good reviews. It looks like the new owners have really made a difference as this felt like a healthy club with friendly staff and a good vibe around the clubhouse. Course is in good shape with great fairways and tricky greens. Was allowed to tee off early by friendly lady in shop - got around in about 3 hours so pace was fantastic!! Would recommend!!

Great Course

Played today, had a great time. Course is in good condition. Greens are a challenge, but that’s what makes this course fun. It’s fair & challenging at the same time.
The amenities that are offered are great. I’ve played WP9 many times, so happy WP has taken over WP18. Two great courses in WP.
Fun golf will be have by all.

In pretty good shape

Now that the city purchased the course it is in much better shape and it’s fun to play. Unfortunately WP9 had taken a drop in condition and service since the purchase, but it’s to be expected.
