Rated 4 out of 5 by Gregoda Greens
This is one of the best courses in the area and I love it. However, this particular time there were a few patches on some greens on the back nine that were under repair. Besides this little faux pa, this course is great, as well as the staff. Nicest people, trying to make your golfing experience as great as possible. Greg

not your typical FL course, elevation changes everywhere, fun track, will test your game. Always enjoy playing Pine Barrens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by docsiff Easy drive to World Woods
The terrain is great carved into the rolling sand hills north of Brooksville up the Suncoast Parkway just 45 minutes north of Tampa. I paid $15 on GolfNow and this beyond its prime long in the tooth somewhat neglected superior layout made a beautiful drive from Sarasota up over the Skyway Bridge and past the Tampa Airport to the Suncoast Parkway. World Woods seems to have met the same economics as Black Diamond GC nearby: neglect due to lack of golfers and a remote location. I liked Rolling Oaks as well or better than Pine Barrens. The best new courses in the Tampa area are Streamsong Red and Blue: but at $300 they are in a completely different stage of the lifecycles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patti4070492 Wonderful birthday weekend
This was a wonderful weekend of golfing for me and my husband. This course was recommended buy another golfer that joined us the previous weekend at another course. He was right on the money when he said it is an "impressive course". I couldn't think of anywhere better to spend my birthday. It was amazing. I am brand new to the game but was not intimidated by the layout. This is a golfers bucket list/top 20 pick. The views from the tee's were amazing not the typical flatness we are used to. Beautiful lighting, landscaping and wildlife. The check in process was professional, thorough and seamless from beginning to the end. Loved the placement of restrooms every 4th hole which keeps speed of play moving. Cannot wait to return with another couple and stay at the Villas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AAALarry Diappointing Slow Greens
Greens were like putting on Brillo Pads. Course was good but most important to me is the Greens and they were probably Punched in last few weeks and were not cut close at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tjones67 A Little Disappointing
Course is nice, but was disappointed in the overall experience. This was my 3-4 time playing at World Woods. Two friends flew in from PA and one of my buddies had to rent clubs. The rental clubs were embarrassing to be quite honest. It was a mixed set of random clubs. A matching set of clubs from Walmart would have been better than the 14 different kind of clubs in the bag. Very disappointed in the rental clubs. First tee was backed up about 2 tee times and the starter could have been talking less to us about the rules. That being said, it is a nice course. But again, I can't bring any friends from out of town because of the rental clubs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by timk18 fantastic!
World Woods IS all world! Played both courses and couldn't ask for anything better. I am SO glad I live close enough that I can enjoy these 2 gems. Took my brother from NC as a treat. They are simply the best! One pleasant surprise was lunch. The burgers are thick as steaks.
Even with the rain, the day was hard to beat!

If you live in the Tampa Bay area, it is worth the drive to World Woods to experience both Pine Barrens and it's sister course.
