Easily the best golf experience for us "nawtheners". Elevation changes as if you were in Wisconsin and Tom Fasio as your course designer. Beat that. It doesn't get any better in Florida.



An under-used Gem -- along with its sister Rolling Oaks course. The Pine Barrens has elevation changes, good condition, old quarry canyons, trees/moss, variety of holes, great staff, almost never crowded. And possibly the world's best practice facility. Definitely the best practice putting green. A Keeper.


One of the most picturesque golf courses I have ever played.

    World Woods has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    This facility has two Tom Fazio eighteen-hole championship courses and a nine-hole executive course.

    Pine Barrens is the signature course for the club. It is a tight, intimidating layout named for its large number of pine trees and barren waste areas. The design demands many long carry shots over waste areas, as well as delicate placement shots to small landing areas. Generally, trees come into play on either the left or right side of each fairway, but rarely both. Two small lakes also come into play on this course.

    The Rolling Oaks Course is a traditional design with rolling fairways lined with live oaks, dogwood, and magnolia trees. The large greens feature multiple tiers and cavernous protective bunkers. Azaleas are planted along the manicured fairways and greens. Water hazards (two lakes) come into play on three holes.

    Locals consider the nine hole Irons Course as a great place for beginning and junior golfers, plus it's also an excellent facility for practicing your short game. This club additionally boasts of having one of the finest practice facilities in the country.

    World Woods offers three challenging practice holes, including a par 3, 4, and 5. A circular driving range covers over twenty-two acres of land and features eight separate teeing areas, including target greens, bunkers, and trees. The circular shape offers an opportunity to practice under various wind and sun conditions. Sand bunkers and chipping greens are also a part of the practice area. The putting course consists of two acres of undulating greens that guarantees a challenge to everyone.
