Winter Pines Golf Course
Winter Pines Golf Course has a par of 67, Men's Tees of 5401 yards and slope 106 and Ladies' Tees of 4548 yards and slope 98. This Lloyd Clifton effort has some water, some sand and not much yardage. It is sort of an odd layout; the front nine has a par of 36, while the back nine has a par of 31. The lone par-5 is 472 yards long. The par-3s fall into two categories. Three of them are more than 200 yards. The other four are roughly 155 yards. The par-4s are all very short. This is a public golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged.
Played it a few times. Plays VERY, VERY slow. Condition is just OK, always full of construction, temporary greens, etc... Staff can be very rude. Many nicer, better courses around, I wouldn't play it again if it was free...
It used to be fun. At some point the group that plays early in the morning have taken over the placed. Even if they only have 2 or 3 players they will not allowed singles to joint in. This behavior has got a lot worse over the last year.To make things worse the staff will allowed them to get away with it. So if you are a single player unless you are willing to wait around for at least an hour while groups of less than four are passing you by all morning save yourself the aggravation. I't not worth it!
I have lived in the area and played this course for years. It is always in very good shape and the greens fees are very reasonable. Prices in the 19th hole also very good. Pace of play is unbelievably slow. If you play here I reccomend walking as it tends to keep you from stacking up too bad. It is an older course and the layout is good for walking.
The starter clearly did not want me ( a woman) and my boys to play. No not children - young men in their 20's - He was very rude and made us feel anything but welcome. We left without playing and fortunately went elsewhere and had a great time!!
Winter Pines is one of the best values in golf. The course is always in great shape. It is not the most challenging of layouts or lengths, but it is golf at a great price.
Typically play is slow because the course is popular but if you know that going in, then you're prepared to deal with it. Should you get a fast round in - and that does happen - then you'll enjoy it that much more. Once I'm on the course, things move along nicely.
For the average golfer, this is the kind of course we should be playing. For the low handicapper, you're going to have one of your lowest scores ever.
The staff at Winter Pines is laid back and helpful. They make golfers of all levels feel welcome.
