World Woods Golf Club - Pine Barrens Course
Always in he top 100 for a reason!!!!!!!!!!!
Pine Barrens at World Woods is an awesome track. The setting is rural just outside of Brooksville. The facilities from the practice side to playing are always impeccable. We live about 40 miles south, however, we always take advantage of their specials, it's worth the gas

EXCELLENT COURSE DESIGN AND LAYOUT.
LOCATION IS QUIET, JUST YOU AND THE COURSE.
PIN LOCATION WAS # 3 - GREENS ARE VERY UNDULATING. PIN LOCATION ON HOLES' 4, 8, & 15 WERE BRUTAL!!!
ENJOYED THE COURSE AND LOOK FORWARD TO COME BACK.

Staff Ruined The Experience
My first time here, and probably my last. On vacation and playing 5 different courses. I drove 1 1/2 hours to get to Pine Barrens and was really looking forward to playing. The course was as advertised, but after 4 holes a course marshal drove up and berated the other members of my group for "slow play". We had just completed 4 holes in under an hour! We were on pace for a 4 hour and 15 minute round and this jerk pulled out this piece of paper and scolded them because there was a gap between us and the group in front of us. The group in front of us was a twosome and had already finished the first hole before we ever tee'd off.
I'll never come back. Golf is about enjoyment, not about how fast you can race through a course.

Thinking Man's course.
We bought stay and play package and played both the courses. If you love golf you will love worldwoods. Both course layouts are excellent and on every hole you have to think on where to hit and which side to miss your shot. We played Green tees so we found the course to be moderately difficult but the back tees (both yellow and black) can be very challenging because all the trouble off the tee comes in to play. If you go there you must play both the courses, two distinctly different courses. The staff was very friendly (hint: buy their stay and play package) and shut down the 3 hole practice course for us so we could organize bigbreak style skills challenge. Over all we had lot of fun and will go back there again.
Played 54 holes and never lost the ball. :-)

Looked forward to playing but course management by me not very good-a few holes got the best of me-would like to try it again.

Pine Barrens is always on our choice of courses along with Rolling Oaks for a 36 hole day of golf. The Barrens is a must play.

Been going to Orlando for quite some time now, and always thought about making drive to World Woods, and play Pine Barrens, but 62 miles and 1-1/2hr drive always seemed to much.
Finally decided on my birthday to take the drive and play, Why did I wait!
From the drive up to the lane to a clubhouse that just fit into the golf course, to the staff that was cheery and attentive, it just sat the table for a wonderful day.
The course although a little dry was great ,never a bad lie in fairway and greens were just a little on tricky side. Every hole a new experience to play. The two holes that were almost the same were the tough finishing holes on front and back nine.
Will be back again .
This is not resort golf, this is how golf was meant to be played, carved out fairways , greens that make you think but are fair, plenty of sand , wildlife everywhere. I can see why this course is rated so high. Don't wait like I did it is well worth the drive.

Pace of play
World woods is still an excellent value. Greens are good but need to be faster for more enjoyment. Pace of play is awful. They have a starter and marshal, but why? starter makes you wait to long to tee off, there pin out policy does not speed up play, he does not give any instructions on course manners or pace of play. there was a marshal but never saw him after first hole and he most definitely did nothing to speed up play at any time
