Winding Hills Golf Club in Montgomery is a challenging course that will give you some practice with your irons and test your short game skills. This formidable short course is much tougher than it appears. The designer, Steve Esposito, modeled the layout after Jeff Cornish's Blue Rock Course in Cape Cod. The narrow, tree-lined fairways require accuracy. Strategically placed sand traps frame the small greens and several water hazards come into play as well. The holes vary in length and each is unique from one another. You may be surprised to find that you have to use all the clubs in your bag. The ninth hole is arguably Winding Hills Golf Club's toughest. This par 3 requires a long and demanding carry to a green that's sloped back to front.

Course in great condition and played with very little standing water after an all day rain on Thursday.

Restaurant wasn’t open, had planned to have lunch after playing. Wasn’t an option today.

I had a great time playing at this par 3. Gave me a chance to test out my irons/wedges off the tee box. Very short holes but can wizz through them then.

Love this course. I started playing golf last year and since I’ve started I’ve been to over 15 golf courses in 3 different states and played over 60 rounds of golf. This course exceeds many of the bigger courses in every aspect. Andy in the pro shop is very accommodating and pleasant. The carts are always clean and the course conditions are excellent. The greens are tougher than most but by playing them you’ll eventually see how much better you get at putting. I’d recommend this course to the beginner golfer but also the more experienced golfer who needs practice with his/her short game.

This is a great executive course that offers a few challenging par 3 holes. It’s a great place to go play a quick 18. Course is generally well maintained, but can be pretty wet in the early spring and late fall.

Pace was slowed down due to cartpath only restrictions. Course was very wet causing balls to plug. Better rounds are played during dry conditions

For the past two years all summer, into the fall, they used to have a sign that read 18 holes with cart $20. Not sure if it was after 4 p.m., or whatever. I believe they need to go back to using those incentives to get me to play there more. Otherwise for $30 I can go up the road and be with my buddies playing elsewhere. Just a thought. Great course, we love it. Thanks

With all the rain recently, the course was understandably cart path only. Under dry conditions the course plays much quicker. Overall, high quality for a reasonable price equals value for the customer.
