World Woods Golf Club - Pine Barrens Course
One of a kind
Have played this course many times, although it was not in the best shape this time it was still probable better than most tracks in the state of Florida.

Great Course worth the drive!
Just like the other 3 times I have played Pine Barrens, the course was in great shape from tee to green. Pace of play was great at 3.5 hrs, worth very penny of $30, can't wait to return and play Rolling Oaks in a month or so after the greens are recovered.

Tougher of the two courses
Pine Barrens is one of two courses you can play at World Woods and is certainly the tougher of the two. Plenty of waste bunkers and the fairways were narrower. However, I enjoyed this course and am looking forward to returning.
The only warning that I would currently issue is that the greens were recently punched and may need about 2 more weeks to fully recover. Otherwise, it is a spectacular golf course.

Great Course | Bring Your Own Clubs
We loved playing this golf course. Every hole is intriguing and the course is tons of fun. Challenging greens, variety of shots to play, beautiful fairways, rolling hills, excellent views and tee options for all skill levels. We played in the rain and still had a blast.
I saw an earlier review that said this course doesn’t have a liquor license but we bought a 6-pack of beer from the clubhouse and they put it on ice for us to take out to the course. It was raining but they said normally a cart girl/guy is driving around. The clubhouse isn’t huge but we don’t spend much time in the clubhouse anyway. I’d rather them put the money into the course and it’s obvious that they’ve done this.
While Pine Barrens definitely penalizes poor shots, it’s not one of those courses where you spend a ridiculous amount of time looking for your golf ball. The rough is not overly thick but it’s still enough to be challenging.
There are a few holes where you have the option of carrying a shot 200+ or playing it safe. There are medium length par 3’s and a long par 3. Same for the 5’s. Every hole is totally different.
You absolutely should not rent clubs from this facility. I could’ve put together a better set by going through the lost and found bin at our local par 3 course. Seriously, do not rent clubs if you like any type of consistency. While the rental price was right ($15-20), the bag contained 5-6 different brands of clubs with each at least 15 years old with some being 20+. The putter looked like something you could get at a yard sale for $0.25. The grips are just as old. We were very surprised that a facility of this caliber would have such terrible rental options.
Overall this is a great facility and you won’t be disappointed if you bring your own clubs.

Fantastic course horrible facilities.
Played yesterday and the course was in fantastic condition even with greens being punched the Monday before they were still in pretty good condition. The clubhouse is nothing special and for being a top course in the state of Florida quite disappointing. The course doesn't have a liquor license so don't plan on playing for drinks at the turn. Also the carts were in pretty sorry shape. It rained for about an hour total during our round and the rain cover for the clubs had two big rips in it and wouldn't open all the way. Basically a great course with pretty disappointing facilities.

A Fun Test
This course is fair but is a test for an average golfer. But as always, we enjoy playing World Woods. Both courses have no houses on them so you are truly out in the natural beauty. Frankly, we enjoy the Rolling Oaks course a little better because it is less difficult.

What a deal
Booked through Golf Now and found a hot deal for $18. Along with a discount it turned out to cost $24 for both me and my partner. Played 3 hole warm up course which is a very nice touch. Played Pine Barrens and the course was in great shape. Staff was very friendly and starter sent us to #10 to start to help speed up the round. Only thing that could've made it better was if I would've played better. If you're visiting the Tampa/Brooksville area and only have one round of golf you can play do yourself a favor and make it at World Woods. You won't be disappointed.
