Irons Course at World Woods Golf Club Ratings & Reviews
about 2 months ago
Courses are both wonderful and represent a real value. Starters, rangers and cart ladies were all fantastic. The big three star drop in rating comes from a single staff member in the clubhouse by the name of Rick.
While visiting from out of state the club booked our tee times on each course for 8:58 and 1:48, respectively. The course was running at a 20-25 minute delay so we didn't tee off until closer to 9:20. Pace of play was solid and at the 16th tee I took note that it was 1:00 and that we were probably going to be finishing our first round right at/around that 1:48 tee time. I took the initiative to call the clubhouse to inform them of the time and circumstance and loosely ensure that we'd be accommodated as we finished our first 18 and briefly freshened up. Rick crudely informed us that the course was booked solid and simply noted in so many words that we make this 1:48 tee time or be SOL. This was despite my notice that their own morning delays created this situation, that they booked/chose these adjacent times for us, and that we were looking at a minimal delay at most. This left us scrambling to the point that I had to change clothes in the parking lot and run back over barefoot while my cart-mate went in and paid for the second round and the other two-some had to make a mad scramble as well.
It turned out that at least the next two groups behind us were also looping over to the other course as well...so it really should have been an easy conversation with a better clubhouse just politely recognizing the situation, providing us with the assurance and simply asking to make our way over to the other course 1st tee box as soon as reasonably possible. Granted, this was the same personnel that when I asked if they had a water fountain gave me directions and upon following them and seeing no water fountain I asked the woman behind the clubhouse bar and she just held out her hand as she, in fact, was the "water fountain". Just classless and an example of how one bad person can punt the positive efforts of so many others. Here I am back home after a bucket list trip with a ruined experience of an otherwise great course because of one person.

Great facility to play and practice. Would get 5 stars if they had a better clubhouse. Staff is not very accommodating or friendly. They are obviously there for just a paycheck, not a passion for enhancing the golf experience for customers.

In its wonderfully natural and forested setting, World Woods is home to two excellent Tom Fazio designs. Both opened for play in 1993 with the much-admired Rolling Oaks layout complementing the stunning and highly-acclaimed Pine Barrens course.
Pine Barrens is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Florida. The excellent tree-lined parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
