Best Value in Golf

Tough to give 5 stars to a rural track in the middle of nowhere. But, for the buck, arguably one of the best values in golf ever. Fun layout, short but lots of doglegs, very picturesque, rolling terrain, and very fair. We'll be back.

The course is in great shape. Pin placements were tough, but manageable. Staff was very polite and helpful.

Pleasantly surprised!

Excellent value. Greens were rolling nice. Bunkers need some work but not terrible. Interesting layout with some elevation changes and risk reward shots. I will be back for sure.

The hidden 18 you need to play

Willow Wood course is in great shape. The ruff is cut low enough to find your ball, but high and thick enough to cause havac with your shot. Fairways and greens are lush as you would find at a private club.

Only issue was pace of play on the back. A 3 sum was holding up 2 groups behind. We played 3 holes twice and still had to wait.

Quiet course, friendly staff

Booked through Golfnow. Played today and decided to play again tomorrow. Book at the course and it was $6 cheaper to play. Gotta watch the Golfnow prices, I guess. Good little course, quick pace most of the day. Playing it again tomorrow.
