Fun Course

Nice layout through woods and some wetland areas. Friendly staff. A little short from white tees, but still requires shot making. Greens were in great shape...putts rolled smoothly, with consistent pace. I play here several times a year. Great fall colors. Good value.

GreatShape

Worked at this course just after HS (2004) and it still looks great! Hadn’t played here in about 15 years. Quinn in the clubhouse was very professional and courteous! Course was in great shape! Greens were soft (personal preference) and were perfect speed! Back 9 was a little slow, but still finished 18 in about 4 and half hours. I had forgotten it can be challenging, but was still a fun round! Great value! Grass tees at the range and nice putting green! Will definitely be back!

Fun course

WW is certainly not the most challenging course around as it’s fairly short but there are some really fun risk/reward holes and it is one of my favorite courses anywhere. They upped the prices a little bit (who/what hasn’t?) but it’s still a very good value IMO. If you’ve never played here you should definitely give it a shot.

Great Course!

What a wonderful gem of a course! Everything was excellent. Course was in excellent shape, even the rough was in good condition given the hot weather lately. You need a good GPS, there are a lot hidden shots. Course requires shot placement over booming drives. Greens were fabulous and huge. The pro shop and building were real nice looking, but we didn't utilize the snack bar. Definitely will be back to play!

I was very pleasantly surprised

When we made a tee time at Willow Woods my expectations were pretty low. The photos on the website were not very impressive.
The course was very nice. In spite of the relatively flat topography in the area, the course had a lot of contour changes in nearly all areas. The condition of the tee boxes, the fairways and the greens was not good, it was spectacular! I have not played a course that was much better since I played the Meadows at Grand Valley. The greens were really fast and were surprisingly contoured..
Willow Woods is truly a hidden gem. Do not miss this one!
