Food & BeverageSnacks
My summer golf around the US has been a great success thus far. This was the third course so far and I have to say it was pretty good!
Wow the greens
Slanted greens. Almost Augusta like. Very pretty park setting. Hilly as well. I'll play it again.
Greens always in great shape
One of the best courses for the $ around. Don’t be above the hole you can forget about it. Good mixture of tough and easier holes. Drivable Number 11 red barn hole is my favorite. Great for all levels. Cart paths suck.
Decided to play here because course was in great condition 2 months ago. Not so great now after lousy weather in Indiana. Tees and fairways need work. Greens had been recently aerated so putts would not roll well at all. Glad I got it with a hot deal!.
Dry & slow
I've played at Winding River a number of times over the years. This year I've only played there a few times. But this year the course was very dry. Today, the tee boxes were so dry I could hardly get my tee in the ground. The greens were decent, but the fairways were really dry. The pace of play was also very slow today. We had to wait a long time on almost every hole.
Playing this course was good value. It was reasonably priced. But, it felt like a bit of a case of "you get what you pay for" - The course conditions were inconsistent and poor at times. Not watered, some patchy greens, very hard and bouncy fairways and greens.
Enjoy it for the cost, maybe not the conditions.
Plan on a 5+ Hour Round at This Course
Tee times are stacked on top of each other and no martial to ensure a decent pace of play. Groups typically don’t know golf etiquette (or they don’t care). The course is in great condition but you may as well book a course where they care more about your overall experience than how many tee times they can book in a hour. That is unless you don’t mind waiting 10 minutes on every tee to hit your ball.

NO STARTER AMD DOES NOT FOLLOW COVID GUIDELINES
They have signs saying wear a mask but don’t make customers wear them in the clubhouse. I asked them about following the guidelines and they said they did not enforce them, cuz it is merely a recommendation. The course was backed up and no starter helped the pace of play. Clearly they over book in order to get their money.
30 Minutes Late to Start
I typically golf at Winding River once to twice a year. I typically only golf here when I find a hot deal. Fairways and rough are always in great shape. Greens are always is in “ok” shape. Always liked how they take advantage of the hills that they have on the course to make for blind tee shots. Driving range is always very nice and well kept, clubhouse is nice and large with enough food options for when you are making the turn and the pro shop is always clean and organized with someone waiting to service you. The main complaint I have about this course is always the same. Their is always a large backup off the first tee on the weekends. The hole is a nice starting hole, that is always nice and straight and I understand the errant shots that come from all types of golfers to get going for their round. My issue is not that, my issue is that it’s not managed to get people off when it’s their time to go.
Liked the course. The tree lined fairways will make you pay if you miss the fairways. That is the most challenging part of the course. Keep it in the fairway and you should score well.
We're glad you enjoyed playing at Winding River and its challenges! We hope to see you out here again soon.
