Gulf Winds Golf Course -- Frequent players review
Review by: Steve C. Woodbury I play this course maybe 3 times a week or more, and I just love the challenging aspects of it. Being on the gulf coast, you get constant winds at variable speeds and direction, along with the roads alongside to help make sure you keep your ball streight. I like the size of the greens, and the consistancy of the feel. Although you really can't get much bite from them, you still have to watch the roll and control. With long par 4's and even longer par 5's you really have to play smart golf here, but there are opertunities for shorting the dog-legs for the more experienced player. I gave this course a 4-5 for the great greens fees, and offers to the community. A real challenging course to better anyones game.

Lake Whitney Golf & Tennis Club -- It's alright. Nothing more, nothing less
Review by: Lawrence "Red" Gangea In all honesty, I feel the other reviews may be overselling Whitney. Yes, the views are nice, but do you really play golf for the views? How about some challenges? There is some of that on 2 or 3 holes that have elevation changes or blind shots, but not enough to stand out. The upgrades looked promising (it's been stop and start for 5 years), but have never come through. Yes, Lake Whitney Golf Club is a goat ranch, but it has charm. It's wide open in most places, so it's nothing compared to its neighbor, White Bluff (i.e.: real grass, sand in the bunkers instead of hardpan dirt, more than two water hazards, sprinkler system, etc.), but it is fun to play, though losing your ball in the rock field on the course's back half is always possible. The bonus is that it's in the middle of nowhere, so you can be sure you will not be bothered, or have someone complain you are playing too slow. Just remember, this is no country club, and I don't think I'd want it any other way. Check it out if you find yourself around the lake with nothing else to do, or the $75 and up it takes for the White Bluff resort down the street.
