REVIEW:
World Woods Golf Club is located about 30 minutes north of Tampa in one of the less populated areas of West Florida. If you didn’t know it was there you would stand a good chance of missing it. There are two 18-hole courses to chose from, Pine Barrens and Rolling Oaks. We had the opportunity to play Pine Barrens in August of 2002. Florida can be brutally hot and humid that time of year but we had the good fortune to play on a day where the temperature stayed below 90. The Head Golf Pro, Scott Wyckoff, made the arrangements for us to play and he was very cordial and accommodating. The course architect was Tom Fazio and he did any outstanding job of carving Pine Barrens out of the lush Florida woodlands. Pine Barrens has been rated one of the top public courses in the country by many golf publications and organizations and it is certainly deserving of all the accolades it has received. Being situated away from a major population area is a big plus as it allows World Woods unlimited space for their exceptional practice facilities. It was really cool to be able to play a course that is surrounded by the serene forest and away from condos and the noise of traffic. The lay out of the course offered a lot of challenges but was fair and rewarded well struck shots. We had a great day at World Woods thanks to all the staff that did their best to insure that we enjoyed our round of golf from start to finish. We hope to be able to get back to Tampa in the future and play Rolling Oaks. GolfTest USA would recommend to all golfers coming to the Tampa area to make time to play both courses at World Woods Golf Club.
