“Great golf,but everything else just ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

First of all, you can't beat the price this time of year. And the courses were in great condition, and very enjoyable to play. Amenities are another's matter. The clubhouse is small and needs renovations (at the least). The help in the pro shop was sullen and unhelpful ( both days). We stayed in the villas, although they are a bit of a drive from the golf facility, they are very nice (2 BR, 2BA), and there is a Publix close by and nice restaurants within 15 minutes.

“Perfect condition-- much improved must play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

It is well known the two courses here are some of Florida's best. I have played uber-private Seminole and Am a member at TPC. Yes, they are better than WW but only marginally. New superintendent keeping these pretty and strikingly awesome layouts in top shape. They went shabby about a decade ago. Most prefer the Pine Barrens where there are holes you have seen before in your life and may not see again except at Pine Valley. However, Rolling Oaks is perhaps as pretty a course as any save Pinehurst #4. Play them both. Smooth but not overly slick greens.

“Great layout, visually pleasing, makes for a thoughtful round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Pine Barrens at World Woods is a super Fazio layout in excellent condition. It gives the golfer an opportunity to see the trouble, for the most part, and to react and create the play for each hole. Different tees allow each player the choice for their game. The equalizer for golfer are the greens - undulating, difficult to read greens.

Keep it in the short grass and you can score. Get off the fairway and it's trouble. And be sure to look a putts from both sides, though do it quickly. It will be an enjoyable day on an enjoyable course.

“A Florida golf course that makes you feel like you are in Georgia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This golf course is way off the beaten path but it is well worth the trip. The greens are fast and true and the practice areas are the best. At the turn you call the club house and put in your lunch order and they will deliver to you on the 10th hole that is sweet. This course will challenge you on every hole. We played the pine barons course from the tips. Next time I may move up to the green or white because Arnie says "tee it forward ". Had a great time.

“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We played several rounds of golf at different golf courses in Florida, and this was by far the best golf course that we played at.

It was definitely worth the 50 minute drive from Tampa. Even though it had been raining quite heavily the previous day, the golf course was in a very good condition. We really enjoyed playing. Even the lunch was included in the green fee!

We'd love to play those courses again!
