Greedy owners make for worst course ever. booked a tee time for 11:00 on saturday. showed up promptly, no indication of a problem when checking in. Waited for ten minutes after our tee time, still not called. checked in, told it would only be twenty minutes. This is an outright lie, as at this point they were sending out fivesomes and knew that they were an hour behind on tee times. timed a group at twenty minutes a hole. Checked with starter who was unbelievalby rude so we went and got a very gruding refund. Will never play this course again. While they were processing the refund heard them tell people calling to come on down as the wait was only twenty minutes! Greedy liars!

Pros: nice course if you have all day to play a round

Cons: lying staff bad course management

I would give this course a zero if I could. The greens were like putting on lava rock and I got my shorts ripped off by thorns of bushes I fell into. I could not even figure out why there where pretty girls out there, I was looking for my usual 74 year old cougars. I will never go back to this track for the cheap beers, I think they are laced with bad powder that make me play bad. Being a wanna be pro golfer, I will pick a better course to sneek on to next time. That being said, I have a tee time there tomorrow just to see if I had and isolated bad experience.

This is the best golf course I have ever played on. Seriously... perfectly maintained, plenty of water, and an ISLAND GREEN?! What more can you ask?

I've played Willows about 20 times (close to work in Redmond) but had a string of bad experiences recently. Most people know Willows Run courses play S-L-O-W. I usually play Eagle's Talon and I've had 6+ hour rounds. Apparently Double_J thinks that is not a big deal but when it plays slower than Bellevue Muni, it makes you wonder what the management's priority is.

Second, their rangers are ineffective and unusually rude for a level of course where you expect to be treated with common courtesy. One ranger is specific was completely rude, demanding and yelling at my foursome to play faster when the foursome behind us complained. This was on Saturday afternoon when Willows is known for 6 hour rounds: Our group could have played left handed and still keep up with the slow moving groups ahead of us.

I told the ranger he better back off and don?t grandstand just to satisfy a group that complained the loudest and told him Willow's GC rangers don't know how to keep the rounds to less than 5 hours (wouldn?t that be nice.)

Anyhow, the ranger got in my face like he was duke it out. Simply, proof was in the pudding: That round took almost 6 hours to finish even with my ?slow? group waiting 5~10 minutes to before hitting every shot.

After finishing the round, I complained to the assistant pro who was working the counter at the pro shop to post a complaint against the ranger. The pro looked at me and said tersely, "You can't play 4 hour rounds here on weekends." Letters to the pro and the management has never been responded. So much for a ?championship caliber golf course complex.?

There are plenty of other courses (Oki courses in particular) that are managed well and affords golfers enjoyable time. My foursome will no longer play Willows Run.

Willows Run Golf Course has the best mini golf course around. Each hole is very unique and fun and it's a great place for people of all ages. It's fairly expensive for mini golfing, but well worth it.

It boggles the mind how lame the managment can be. It seems all they care about is trying to make a dime and refuse to take a hard look at the customer experience. Good luck.

I love the Willows Run Golf course. Since it's right across my office buildings, my colleagues go there every week during the morning to play a round of 18 holes. They have the two 18 holes, family golf, and driving range. The view from Willows golf course is georgeous too, there is no tall buildings around, and on a clear day, you can see blue skys and a distant mountain rainier right where you golf.

Ive played at Willows Run numerous times, both at their driving range, Heron Links, Coyote Creek, and Eagles Talon. All are nice, reasonably inexpensive courses to play at that offer very wide open holes, and a great view of Mt. Rainier on a clear day. On most evenings in the summer, you can even see balloonists in the distance.its very nice.

This review is for the miniature golf course only, as I've never played at the real course. This mini-golf course is very tasteful and a fun outing for adults looking for something different to do. When I've been there it hasn't been overrun with children, nor has it been very crowded, even during the day on weekends.

Prices are very reasonable, and parking is easy to find in the large parking lot.

Played Willows saturday and was really impressed. golf course was in great condition the staff was freindly and helpful and the beer was really cheap. Why drive anywhere else when you could play here. I also joined their membership because it gives you two for one dinners at 5 different restaurants.

Pros: Reasonably Priced, Hot Beer Girls, Great food

Course is overrated for the value. Practice facility is marginal at best, with the balls in poor condition. Course is usually in good condition, and is very convient to walk on. Compare against others in the area like Triology on Redmond Ridge, it cannot compete.

The golf course is fine until you get to the greens! They are commonly littered with ball marks. The golfers who seem to play there believe it is all right to leave their ball marks unrepaired!

Willows Run is a over-priced, pusedo county club or Eastsiders who want to pretend their affluent. While the links style courses can be challenging is well kept, this is really nothing spectacular or unique about any of it's holes. The par three course for the money best deal at Willows. It is well kept as many par three's are not and a great place for a take new golfer so that they may see portion of what a real golf course feels and looks like. I am not a cheap-skate and have paid over a $100.00 a round and felt it worth the price. So do yourself a favor go to Sumner Meadows if you like Link style golf,
it offers just as much golf course, at a reasonable price.

No contour/grade change. Little landscaping, few trees. Unimaginative and unchallenging design. What could possibly be the draw?

Willows is the worst, overpriced track on the eastside. The only good thing about it is that it's conveniently placed in the valley. I wonder if Paul Allen is paying for water yet or if he is still drawing it out of the sammamish creek. What a joke of a course.

It looks nice from the outside, but this course is always overloaded. It takes at least 5 hours to play and you wait on every shot. The course is in good shape and the greens are nice. With 36 holes to play, you'd think that they could space the play out. The staff really doesn't seem to care that people are packed on the course, and that is the part that bothers me. If you don't mind the drive, play the Links at The Golf Club at Hawks Prairie. It is well worth the trip.

The only thing that this place has going for it is the location. If I payed the $40+ to golf here on the weekend and have to wait after every shot I would walk off and demand my $$ back

I haven't been to Willows since they added the new 18. At that time, I thought the course was very boring and super overpriced. Last week this course was the only one I could get a 4some on, and was plesantly suprised. The course was fairly priced, in good condition. What really make the course was the carts with the gps- having exact distance to sand traps, the tip of the green, back of the green was awesome. The "pro tips" for each hole was a waste. The course is tight, typically ob along one fairway, and lateral hazard along the other. The course also makes you lay up alot. I once played one hole with two 6 iron shots to get to the green. I would play there again.

Play it for convenience not the challenge. The course is in very good shape, greens are nice for the amount of play but the track is just boring. Nothing here to keep you coming back for more.
