The Pine Barrens Course at World Woods, ranked #64 in the World by Golf Digest, is a visually stunning blend of native terrain and golf course design.
Named for the many pine trees that line its length, the acclaimed layout is sculpted from an expansive pine forest with surprising and dramatic changes in elevation. The large manicured fairways framed by expansive untamed waste bunkering create a unique golf experience. The course's style has been compared to that of Pine Valley in New Jersey - the consensus No. 1 course in the world. Pine Barrens offers many intimidating, yet, enjoyable holes. The golfer who challenges Pine Barrens will find the course to test both the physical and mental aspects of the game.
The Rolling Oaks Course provides the second world-class layout at World Woods. An entirely different, yet no less enjoyable experience than playing Pine Barrens, this course's name also gives clue to its design.
Despite being built directly adjacent to the Pine Barrens Course, differences in soil content allow the land to support giant Oak trees draped with Spanish moss that regularly accent the holes. Sharply defined bunkers filled with bleached white sand contrast beautifully with the rich green fairways. These attributes coupled with the many Azalea bushes present in the landscaping are reminiscent of the famed Augusta National.
The beautiful rolling fairways that lead to undulating greens add drama to this more traditional course design. Many changes in hole style and length create a great blend of holes that requires a variety of shots and a strategic approach to score well.
