The low-cut rough and tiered greens make it player-friendly and fun.

Playing as a single on a Saturday midday round, the pro shop sent me out behind six foursomes. I played the first two holes, then jumped to ninth hole where I met up with a fun-loving threesome for one of the more enjoyable back nines in recent memory, even though pace of pace was still sluggish. The fairways and tee boxes were in fine shape, but the greens were brown, bumpy, yet amazingly fast. The wide-open course layout was mostly nondescript and stress-free, save a few Par 3's with water in front, plus a few holes wrapping around lakes. The beverage cart service was excellent, as was the young lad attending the carts. No GPS. WT is worth playing once, but not twice, unless the fee is around $20.

Really liked this course. Lots of challenging holes with water and traps. Set up of trees allowed beginners and advanced golfers. Greens are large and fast but putt true. Starter was somewhat of a grump but rest of staff were very friendly and helpful. Will play this course again soon.

My husband and I have played this course several times and we do enjoy the layout. Normally, the pace is better but today, it was a 5 hr round, which for us is unacceptable. There were holes we waited 10 minutes on the tees and no Marshall on the course. Three groups waiting on a par three is unacceptable as well. We can’t control the skill level of the players, but for most of us, pace of play is key. I realize it’s high season but I won’t be back on a Saturday until Summer.

First time playing here. Matched up with nice gentlemen that knew the course and offered some local knowledge. Course was in great shape. Greens had been worked on?: Some had brown/dirt look, but rolled fine with no problems-just a visual thing. Unless you hit errant shots, there is not a lot of trouble to get into. Bunkers played well (I hit into my share on approach shots into the wind). Staff were all great. The restaurant and bar are quite nice. I will return.

Six of my fellow golfers and I had the great good fortune of playing Winston Trails Golf Club on March 27th.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff was professional, personable and proficient.

The course was in great condition. The fairways were wide and fair. If you hit a ball behind a tree, you deserved to be there. The greens were fast and true.

Everything about the course made it a perfect day of golf.

Thank you Winston Trails Staff.

Always enjoy this course. But after playing several times it does have a glaring weakness. Food and beverage services for on course play has been lacking every time I’ve played. Prices are exorbitant and service is nonexistent. I’m not a member so they might have a different view.

Really nice course, not your typical flat Florida track, back 9 nicer than the front but overall all 18 are good. Greens are really fast and roll really nice with some good contours. Course gets a bit tougher when the wind picks up, especially if youve never played there before because some local knowledge is needed on a couple of holes. Overall nice little course at a great value, especially in peak season.
