Remodel has ruined the course

The whole course remodel has ruined this course. The fact you pay for 18 holes but since one hole is closed down you get to only play 17. Very frustrating when you’re paying full price. Will no longer go to this course as it used to be a favorite but $60+ to play a partial course seems ridiculous. Would never have played had I known the condition and the course restructure.

Trending up!

Course is still undergoing big renovations but it very playable and greens were really good. Fun track. Cheap drinks. Nice staff and great pace of play. I would buy stock in this course, seems to be on the right track.

Only 17 holes are open, which was only downside (free par???).

Rough shape

Course is in rough shape due to construction of housing developments. Once it’s finished it will be nice, but definitely not worth the money in the current state

Sunday with the family

Scheduled a last minute quick nine for Sunday morning for me, my wife and son. Staff was very nice and helpful. Course was being worked on but didn’t influence play. Will be back thanks.

Needs some TLC

There were a few holes completely closed do to construction around course and others where the tee boxes were moved up. Currently it’s not worth the money. Hopefully, the owners will put some money and TLC into the course when construction is complete.

Under Construction

The course was in good shape however, the course only has 17 holes open and to play the “18th” hole you have to figure out which additional hole you want to play. The rate ($65) on the weekends, given only 17 open holes and construction throughout, is too high. Please reconsider your rate. Hole 16 has a closed tee box and the tee box is a very short par four. It’s just under a lot of construction. Please reduce your rate as this did impact our experience.
Thanks

It’ll be good…

They’re trying their best. But the course is under construction. So, for a discounted price this course is worth it. Staff is great.

Overpriced and Misleading Course Conditions

Multiple holes were under repair and/or missing completely. Club house attendants did not mention the course was under construction and for the holes not under repair, the rough and bunkers were in very, very poor condition. As for the amenities, the course does not have a "true" driving range; Wood Wind's driving range is comprised of turf mats which require you to hit directly into a net approximately ten feet in front of you - no range at all. Overall, I would not recommend anyone spend $65 on a course of such poor quality - play elsewhere

Overpriced

Course is under major construction yet they continue to charge full rates, terrible value. Layout is absurd, hopefully only due to the construction? I won't be back anytime soon and would avoid this course right now....maybe for the next couple years until construction is finished.

Under construction

I wish we had known the course was under significant construction and renovation before we booked. We encountered a group of 8 playing together. They eventually let us play through right before we were going to skip a hole to get past them. New holes have been constructed and one of the holes is currently unplayable. The scorecard gives Everyone a Par for that hole. So you are paying for 18 and playing 17 holes.

Terrible Shape - Way Overpriced

I never really write reviews but Woodwind deserves a bad one. I used to love this course as it was typically in good shape and a good amount of the greens are challenging. Another benefit was that it's less than 1 minute away from my house. However, they started construction some time ago then raised the prices. Pace of play was excruciating. 5 1/2 hour round for a solo player is ridiculous. Constantly waiting 5+ minutes to tee off every hole. At least it was a beautiful day outside.

The raised price of $65 is absurd, especially considering that the course is tore up in many spots. 6 par 3s, 400 yard par 5s? It's a joke. At best I'd maybe pay half to play here until the construction is completed. It seems that people have caught on and realized it's way over priced as the tee times appear to be wide open now.

One thing Woodwind appears to have going for them is their head Pro, Elliot. He was very laid back and a pleasure to talk to during my checkin. Seemed to be an awesome guy.

Under Major Construction

I know they need the money. But paying $52 for a long confusing par 3 course is a bit much. This course maybe done right when it is finished. But for right now, it is a mess and certainly not worth the money I paid. I’m sorry to say that. Because I want truly to support all things golf. But we played nearly 4 par 3 in a roll. One of my biggest complaints from both rounds I played there was the color of the tee boxes. I play blue normally and the blue they have is very close to the black. There were a group ahead of us that lived there. So during the round, they needed more beer. So they stopped at their house right after their tee shots. Carts left on the fairway, while they stock up for the back nine. This is a huge problem on Fathers Day, Sunday golf day, and golf etiquette. Sprinklers going all day. Got to 17 and 18 and was showered with water as you chip and putt. On 17 we were almost fire hosed down as the cycle randomly came on to water the green with a direct stream of heavy water flow. For what it is, that price needs to come down. Or they need to close until they have a golf course that can really be played and enjoyed. Also, if folks who live there want to play golf, that’s great. But if they want to stop off at home, it should be like going to the shack; you don’t tee off and sit your cart in the fairway.

Wonderful time

The course is still getting it's "sea legs" with the updates and construction winding down. We could have used better signage to know where to go, especially the new holes. The pricing is a bit high. Other than that, Woodwind is starting to come together nicely.

Under Construction!

50% of the course is basically under construction! There is major work being done on many holes and not just the ones involved in the housing development portion of the course. Almost all of the bunkers had little to no sand in them. Many areas where the grass has not been cut in a while, grass 8"-12" high. The water sprinklers kept coming on during much of the round right when we were hitting and only a few feet away causing several of us to get very wet. It seems like they have way too much going on at one time while still keeping the course open and very busy with golfers. And despite all the construction and torn up sections they still are charging full price to play. We all knew that tearing up this course to add houses was not going to be a good thing, and it has proved true. This was a very good course prior to the plan to build houses on the property. There was absolutely NO need to do this as there was plenty of land close by to be used for new housing developments. Just another greedy land grab by developers and officials. Not the kind of experience we were expecting. We will not be returning!
