Not what it once was.
I have played this course a few times in the past couple years. This was my first time out there this year and I'm not sure I'll ever be going back. The staff in the club house cumulatively were about 25 years old between 2 of them. They had feet up on counters playing games on their phones. This wasn't a big deal to me as it seemed extremely slow on the course. The course itself was mediocre at best. Tee boxes were in OK shape, toughs were meager and untended, the greens were surprisingly in good condition, but were unbelievably slow. The sand traps were small ponds, mud filled or laden with rocks that could damage any wedge. We scheduled a tee time and before we made the first green, we had a couple in jean shorts yelling from 200 yards out wanting to pass. We let a second single pass us before we tee'd off on the second hole. A third couple with only one person golfing (or at least one bag and letting his girlfriend hit) went zooming by while we were on the green at hole 2. Then a group of 3 young boys skipped the third hole and went cruising by and paired up with the first rude couple who passed us. At this point, the five played leisurely golf and out nine holes turned into a 2-hour and 45-minute ordeal. Last summer when I went the course was in much better shape and management actually seemed existent. I wouldn't suggest going unless you're looking to ride around skipping holes and playing in the mud.

I had low expectations and was still disappointed
no one was at the clubhouse when I arrived for my tee time. Someone finally arrived to open the doors 45 minutes after my tee time was supposed to be. Conditions and layout were blah.

Beautiful course, Fun to play
This course has everything I want in a golf experience. There is every type of hole: short holes you can drive, long holes you can bomb, tricky mid length holes to think about, elevation changes, sneaky hazards, and so on.
Everything is in great shape, and the staff is always friendly. My only gripe is that this course has a tendency to jam up less skilled golfers quickly, and sometimes playing through isn't even an option. Also, occasionally a bunch of goose droppings on the greens, but that is usually manageable.

Nice course. I liked the layout. Being fairly early in the spring, this course still has areas of excessive rain. Some holes are quite difficult, some are fairly easy. I liked the mounds throughout the course.

I'll get the negatives out of the way first. The club house is a little dated, could use some updating, but that's minor. The back nine is challenging enough on its own, but it seems to be not as well groomed as the front nine, which could affect your score. I had issues on a couple of greens with my ball skipping a little because the grass needed some attention. It seemed a little too long for how dry it was. You could compare it to running your hand over your face when your stubble is about day or so old, how you seem to have to force your fingers past the stubble...
That said, it's a beautiful course. The front nine plays well. It's well maintained. The greens are in good shape. I would recommend to anyone who is a novice player, such as myself, to play the back nine first... You'll finish stronger and more confident if you finish on the front nine.

Going down hill
It seems Wallinwood is getting worse every year. The pro shop is barren. There is not soap/water in the ball washers. Overall the facilities seem to be in the decline. I would not recommend this course anymore. It is too bad because it used to be very nice. I wonder is management has given up.
