West Course Details   

In contrast to the East Course, the West Course has a manicured look with a park like setting including 

rolling hills, wooded areas, lakes and waterfalls. The course ranges form 5215 yards long (red tees) to 6813 yards long (blue tees) and has a course rating of 72.7 with a slope of 128. 

Although the course has hosted numerous championship events and golf tournaments in Memphis, the four sets of tees and layout provide an excellent course for every level of skill. This is the preferred course of the majority of our members and is one of the best golf courses in Memphis golf.


The greens are similar to some of the modern designs: 5500 to 6500 square feet, contoured shape, undulations throughout, surrounded by mounds and well guarded by gently sloping sod faced bunkers. The grass is "Champion" bermudagrass and is maintained at a speed of 10' to 11' on the stimpmeter. The West Course greens provide an excellent challenge to all levels of golfers.

The fairways on the West Course are slightly wider than the East course and because of the dual row irrigation system, they are usually slightly denser providing an excellent stand of turf. As on the East the grass variety is Tifway 419 Bermuda. The average fairway width on the West Course is 35 yards. The fairways are mowed every other day using lightweight hydraulic reel mowers at a height of 1/2" to 1" depending on the season. The West Course fairways are consistently regarded as some of the best in the area and the West Course is considered one of the best golf courses in Memphis.

For questions concerning the West Course, contact Head Superintendent Luke Hankins (901.754.6602).

East Course Details

The East Course has a natural look in a rural setting including ditches, trees, lakes, low lying areas and several natural wildlife sanctuaries. The course ranges from 5273 yards long (red tees) to 7209 yards long (black tees) and has a course rating of 75.0 with a slope of 134. Because of the treacherous greens, narrow fairways, and numerous hazards this has been the preferred course of the majority of the local and state championships held at Windyke as well as numerous other golf tournaments in Memphis golf.

The greens are similar to some of the traditional designs of the late 1800's or early 1900's; 4500 to 5000 square feet, built up, generally sloping from back to front, and tilling off sharply from the collars. In addition each green is guarded by at least one bunker. The grass is Champion Bermuda and is maintained at a speed of 10' to 11' on the stimpmeter. The East Course greens provide an excellent challenge to even the best putters in the world.

Most of the fairways are tree lined with mature oaks, pines, and cypress trees planted in the early sixties. Other fairways are bordered by one of the six lakes strategically placed throughout the course. The fairways range in width from eighteen yards to forty yards with an average of thirty yards wide and are planted in a mature stand of Tifway 419 Bermuda. The fairways are contour mowed every other day with light weight hydraulic reel mowers at a height of 1/2" to 1" depending on the season. Windyke is known for having consistently good fairways year after year and the East Course is considered one of the best golf courses in Memphis.

For questions concerning the East Course, contact Head Superintendent Luke Hankins (901.754.6602).

Executive Course Details

The Executive Par Three course is the best place in the Southeast for beginners to learn to play the game of golf without being rushed or intimidated by others. Numerous juniors, ladies, and men have either learned to play there, or honed their skills on the way to becoming better golfers.

In fact, we have had city champions, state champions, and national champions grow up playing our par 3 course. On occasion you can still find them working on wedge, sand wedge and a variety of punch shots on The Windyke Par 3.

For questions concerning the Executive Par 3, contact Head Superintendent Luke Hankins (901.754.6602).

Tournament Information

April 8 - West Course

9:00 Shotgun
8:00 Breakfast
If you have never played in a Triple Format event, then you owe it to yourself to check this one out.
The way a Triple Format works is the first six holes is a best ball, the second six is a scramble and the
last six is an alternate shot. This year’s event will be a two-person, one-day competition with breakfast
before play. This is one of those formats that players talk about and tell stories for years to come. So
if you are looking to kick start your golf tournament season with a fun event, then this one is for you!
Guidelines are as follows:
• Two-Person Teams
• Make Your Own Team or sign up as an individual and we will pair you.
• This event is open to all classifications of members and each team may have 1 guest
• Each team’s handicap is based on the following formula using a player’s USGA index:
Sum of the two players index minus ½ of the difference.
Example: Greg Hynes 4.0
Russ Garner 1.5
5.5 – 1.25 =4.25
We will then use the team’s index to flight the teams before play. Once your team’s handicap has been
used for flighting purposes, it will not be used again.
• If you do not have a full team, we can help you find a player.
• Windyke Cup points event!
• Entry fee is $100 including cart and is payable by member charge, cash or check

2016 Tournament Results

Mens League


Last year was the nineth year for our very successful Tuesday Night Men’s Group. This year promises to be the biggest and best one yet with some exciting new changes to the formatting.
NEW FOR 2017!!!!!!!!!
The formats will remain similar to last year while adding a new division. For several years we have been flighting the event so that players were only competing against players of similar abilities. Due to the success of the flighting we are going one step further. We are going to have a scratch division this year. The formats will closely follow the regular formats, but there will be no handicap involved. The purpose of this is to not only attract more players but to also allow more players to feel as if they have a great chance of competing no matter their handicap. This will strictly be a voluntary flight so you will have to sign up for it each week and can go back and forth if you choose between the scratch flight and the other flights. There will be a 6.9 and below index suggested to play in this flight and all players will play from the gold tees regardless of age. This was something that was asked for by players already playing in Men’s Night and we hope that those interested will not only participate, but get their friends who have not played in Men’s Night before to play as well.
This year we will again award points for playing and for finishing “in the money.” We will then keep up with the points and post them to our website so that you can track your progress. We will use $1 of each player’s weekly entry fee to build a pot that will be awarded to the top 20 players after the season is over at the final event, which will be held on Sunday, October 9th.
One of the reasons that we feel we were so successful is there is no league to join and you did not have to play in every event to win. This will still be the case with 95% of the weekly entry fee going directly to that week’s event.
So if you are a new member or have been around since the trees were planted, this will be a great time for you to come out and meet other Windyke members or maybe find a new group to play with during other times of the week. We again will be making the pairings each week so sign up will be strictly individual. One of the main reasons for starting this group is for members to meet other members and get out of the routine of playing with the same old group each week.
A few of the most important points are listed below:
·         “Pre-Season” play will start March 15at 5:00. We also will allow you to bring a guest that night. We hope that this will allow you to show your family, friends or co-workers why you chose Windyke. The cost for this night will be $20 for members and $30 for guests. Food not included but we hope that you and your guest will stay for dinner.
·         Tuesdays at 5:30 for the majority of the season
·         Call to sign up by 3:00 on the Tuesday that you wish to play
·         Official play with points March 29 –October 4 with the Final being on October 9th
·         $20 per week to play including cart and prizes 
·         Prizes paid out each week
·         Windyke pro shop staff to make pairings each week
·         Points race for a year-long champion
·         Optional dinner while you wait for prizes
·         Lots of fun!
This group is a huge success because of your feedback and your commitment to support it. In order to keep it successful we will again need your support and participation. We also need you to tell your friends so that this group will continue to grow.
