Very Satisfied!

I thought this was an excellent course. Not a long course but you have to be accurate. Never needed a driver, just leave it home. Planning on when I'm coming back. There are some dry spots on the course but it is expected where they are located. The greens are in great condition though.

Challenging, but fun

Mount Woodson is a unique course in that it exists on the side of a small mountain. Each hole presents a different chalkenge, making the overall course a lot of fun to play.

Mt. Woodson

Accuracy off the tee #1 priority. Better bring some extra balls just in case. Don't be afraid to lay up, par is better than loosing 2 sleeves of balls!

Great scenery

I always very much enjoy playing here. The staff has always been very friendly.
The scenery is always wonderful to look at. Extremely peaceful place to play. The course is not extremely long, but does put a premium on keeping the ball in the fairways. If the wind does pick up, your game will definitely be tested.
I highly recommend giving Mount Woodson a visit.

Very challenging, narrow course

Beautiful course, excellent greens. A little on the short side but narrow and challenging. You pay for bad shots. I will be back.

3.5 hour round!

Staff was awesome. The track was fun to play. Definitely bring extra balls if your not solid from 150 and in. We hit driver on 3 holes total ( all the par 5’s) from the middle tees. Greens are in solid condition! Probably running at 12. Fairways where fair and you get rewarded if you put your ball in the correct position of the tee. Next time where in town where coming back for sure.
