This is a great place to play golf. The courses are challenging but fair. The condition of the courses is excellent. The complex has one of the best practice facilities I have experienced. This is not the place to relax over a meal following your game. The club house is very small, serves hot dogs, chips and burgers and is... More

These two courses were part of our annual four day golf outing of 9 friends from Buffalo NY. We enjoyed both courses immensely. We reserved tee times four months in advance so we paid the full rate for greens fees and it was well worth the money. I envy the local golfers who can play there for half price with... More

played rolling oaks on a golf trip; quite a layout. practiced on the HUGE practice green, thinking that this can't be anything like the green complexes on the course.....wrong. but a fun round, challenging and a good value with much more elevation changes than would be expected from a florida course. self contained, so quite out among the trees.

The good and the bad. This golf resort sits on wonderful rolling sand dunes with pines and Live Oaks lining many fairways. There are two courses, the better know Pine Barrens and the other is Rolling Oaks. Pine Barrens is a bit more challenging and can play to any length to suit your ability. There are quite a few wonderful... More

World Woods is an amazing facility, with two full size 18 hole courses, a nine hole course, a practice course, and the largest practice facility I have ever seen. World Woods is a must play for us every time in Florida and we always play both 18 hole courses. The greens are true and fast and the layout is just... More

Reviewed World Woods in the past. Thought I would do it again. Facility was good and continues to get better. Golf unlike most of Florida. Great deal of elevation Changes. Don't let the slope ratings for the courses fool you, the courses will test you. While Rolling Oaks in particular has wide fairways, the par 3's are challenging and the... More

My name is Troy and I have been living in Florida for about 25 years now. I have played courses all over the US, Mexico and Canada.

Nicely designed public layout features two very good choices to play, Rolling Oaks and Pine Barrens. Both are challenging and picturesque..Over the years, the signs of the amount of play the courses get has shown and they no longer deserve the rating that continue to get in Golf Magazine as one of the Top 100 Courses that you can play...

We're come here about 15 years in a row and always enjoy it immensely. The course conditions as of our visit were the best I can recall.
