Nice quick round

Nice course for the money and nice to have a couple par 4s to change it up. You have to hit over a few hazards so makes it a little challenging there. I'll be coming back here more often. Got done in 1 hr 15mins for 2 of us

Good spot for quick/cheap short game work

The key to playing this course is by heading into it with the right expectations. If you show up looking for a great course to challenge your skills you will be disappointed.  The $12 greens fee should prevent those expectations.  If you are looking to get in a quick practice round that is a little more exciting than pounding a bucket of range balls I think you will be pleasantly surprised.  I was. The fairways and greens were in decent shape.  Tee boxes were good enough.  The construction of new houses and scenery outside of the previously mentioned areas was not much to look at, but i wasn't there to take in the beautiful vistas of Polk County.  I was there to work on short irons, chipping and putting.  And I thought that was accomplished and it was worth the $12.

You get what you pay for on this goat track

This course could use some drastic improvements all around. First, none of the holes are marked and there is minimal signage to direct you to the next hole. The hole location isn't obvious, so you have to search for the next tee. The fairways are pretty narrow and when you do manage to hit one, they aren't well kept. The fairway length is consistent with most "second cuts" at other facilities. The rough lives up to its name as it consists of thistle and large crab grass which will swallow your ball. There are quite a few blind shotspot, which I found interesting on a mainly par 3 course. We paid 5 per person, plus another 7 for a riding cart. I can see now, why it was so cheap. The one positive is that the staff were friendly when we arrived.

NEVER play this course

The Woodland Hills Executive opened about 2 and a half weeks ago and I can only imagine it will be open another 2 and a half weeks based on demand and overall quality. The greens are long and slow with chunks out of them filled in with sand. Rough does not exist on this course. It is fairways covered in weeds next to 4 foot tall brush. I wouldn't play this course for free. Never play the Woodland Hills Executive Course. You'll thank me later.
