This course is pretty wide open for the most part. I think it has seen better days, but it is what it is. If you're in the area and want to play some golf, this will certainly satisfy that craving.

Coming to Northwinds from south-central PA, I had high expectations of great mountain golf and tried hard to really like the course. Unfortunately, there are limited views of Indian Lake nearby and the course itself is a fairly open back and forth course. Not a challenging course, especially with the lack of sand traps (there are a few), but it was the conditions that kept me from really enjoying my round. The cart
paths, when available, were a disaster...and though conditions were dry, the sprinklers remained on throughout my entire round. I hit a perfect shot that should have bounced in front of the green and roll near the pin...instead I lost it somewhere in front of the
green...plugged deep in a huge puddle. Since it is not a challenging course, you should have an opportunity to score well. Staff was very friendly but clubhouse was a shack.
