First playing trip to review
Jul 2019
First playing trip to review for future group and business trips There are two courses The Scissortail and Redbud Both are very similar with open rolling links and sugary white bunkers, and undulation on the greens There lies the difference from more urban courses, there are few of any windbreaks and the wind can play a big part in your score. Several lakes and semi deep rough act as hazards. (Need more trees (woods) and shrubbery) The sugar white crystal bunkers are also very different....and you should practice in the chipping area a few tries as they are very different to get out of In July 2019 the scissortail course was closed for airation, and did not play it, but it runs parallel to redbud on many holes so you can see how similar it is. For a solo player the following comments apply You can’t book a tee time ! You can arrive and get paired up, but there is no certainty of similar handicap pairings! The club only books for pairs and above There is no 9 hole rate, but rates have lowered to $75.00 for mornings $70.00 with a winstar casino card, and go down to $50.00 after 1.00 and $40.00 after 4.00, though be aware the club house closes at 7.00pm In conclusion, there are super facilities and lush courses with slick, fast and challenging greens, Carts are all gps screen equipped which is helpful but you have to endure the adverts. The gps also does not show current pin distances so it is not helping to do much more than give a bandwidth of range Joined a 4 ball and had a good social time and fun round. Not my best scoring, but enjoyed the round Would play again, looking to try scissortail course

Good course, Well kept.
Sep 2019
Played from Blues(6700). Good course layout, not too much trouble. Rough was a little thick for Amateurs who don't have a fore caddie or spotter. Could not find ball unless you were within 3-4 yards. It could be a little shorter for faster play. Worth 4 stars. Greens were a little rough, plugged about 3-4 weeks ago. Would play again!!!

Great golf course and staff
Jun 2019 • Friends
Just returned from guys golf trip to Win Star. Both golf courses were in great shape. All staff members were very friendly and helpful. Kory in pro shop was very accommodating with our group of 12 golfers. Earl, the starter, was very fun and made sure we got going on time. Great driving range, numerous ice chest located on course filled with water. We had breakfast before our first 18 and it was very good. We grabbed and quick sandwich before the next 18 and service was very quick. Our group will return.

Driving Range
May 2018 • Friends
This is a pretty nice place - they have two 18-hole courses and planning to add three more!

A shuttle will take you to and from the golf course from the Winstar Casino & Inn so you don't have to drive.

There's no golf club rentals - but bring your own and it only costs about $25 to enter their driving range and hit as many balls you want all day.

Good course. Easy to play.
May 2018 • Business
This course is easy to play, but beware of the wind due to the open plains. I played this course with colleagues and we very much enjoyed it. The course is located very close to the WinStar resort and casino, so you can golf during the day, and game or relax at the resort style pool at night.

The course is kept up really nice. The carts are clean and well kept all have gps in them which help when you don’t know the course. Play was slow about 4 hour round. Overall great course.

Great hidden gem
Jun 2017 • Friends
The first thing we found interesting was the super friendly folks in the golf shop....second was the very affordable prices. The golf carts were fairly new and impeccably clean. The condition of the course was very good. It was challenging in places and a fun place to play. And not too crowded on the Thursday I was there.

Nice course. Had fun. Only drawback was they just plugged and sanded. Good service. All the employees were helpful. They provide ice and bottled water. Cool towels are there too and very much appreciated that weekend!

Best place to take clients for business
Jul 2016 • Business
Been several times in the past year would not say we have had a bad experience.
Between the beverage service and pricing to the great greens. This is a way to get a deal done.
