Length 7237 yards
Slope 133
Rating 75.3

The Pine Barrens at World Woods Golf Club is one of two championship golf courses at the club. Named after the numerous pine trees that cover the course especially along the fairways, it feels far removed from the Florida coasts. Tom Fazio designed the course and it is considered not only some of his best work, but one of the best courses in the state. It is a tight golf course that is notorious for its vast waste areas and bunkers. Although it has a modest length of 7,259 yards, there is plenty of length within the layout with many of the par 4s stretching past 400 yards. There are two small lakes that come into play. The fourth hole is one of the most well known, and most photographed, in the state. It is a par 5 with a treacherous waste area dominating the right side all the way to the green.

Beautiful course

The architecture of this course makes the setting fit so well into its surroundings. Photos cannot fo it justice. One must be in it. Challanging greens. Challanging fairways. Very challangingvsand. But fun to play. I was fortunate to be with veterans of the course so advice was appreciated. Cart girls are awesome but beer is outrageous in price. Staff is great. Driving range is great. Practice green is incredible. Pitching green as well. Lots of wild life including eagles.

Not worth the trip there or the $$ spent !!!

Arrived and was told cart path only due to overseeding !! Nothing on website to indicate that ! Fairways were like hitting out the rough ! Traps were terrible no maintenance done in awhile . Rakes were unavailable on most holes Greens were in terrible condition! Have played this course numerous times over a 20 year period & sorry to say it will be my last time . Rumor has it that it’s to sold & hopefully the new owner will return the course adequate condition. Talked to person in pro & was treated like they don’t care at all ! My advice would be to play elsewhere until under new management!!!

The course was very nice.

The dining room was old and the outside seating was horrible. Please improve that area.
The bathroom is pretty bad too.
FYI, I will pack my lunch and eat in the cart next time.
Golf valet was very nice and the pro shop attendees were great.

Great Course

The layout is excellent, a few greens were a bit spotty with bare spots. My only complaint is the restrooms were disgusting.

Greens are in bad shape.

Greens are in rough shape. Not sure what happened but big portions of a lot of the greens are pretty far gone. Sad to see as both courses were once two of the top tracks in the state.

Great day

The Pune Barrens course has a very different layout then most Florida courses with lots of waste areas and rolling hills.

Aging but still a fantastic layout and magnificent property

Cart paths are in need of repair and greens suffering in some spots due to rain, however they don’t over shadow the great layout and solitude of this environment. If you’ve never played here it’s still worth the trip and continues to challenge at a great price point.
