Located in Ravenna, six miles east of the Kent State University campus, it is the home course for the Kent men's and women's golf teams. The layout offers many challenges while testing every facet of a player's game. The course is characterized by large, undulating greens, more than 40 sand traps and seven lakes. With only two par fives, Windmill Lakes contains a number of long par-fours that require accurate driving and strong long iron play. The course has hosted the U.S.G.A. Public Links Sectional Qualifier and was the former home to the FirstEnergy (formerly Cobra) men's collegiate tournament every other year. The 1984 and 1993 Mid-American Men's Golf Championships were held at Windmill Lakes as well.
