Type Resort
The Pine Barrens at World Woods Golf Club is one of two championship golf courses at the club. Named after the numerous pine trees that cover the course especially along the fairways, it feels far removed from the Florida coasts. Tom Fazio designed the course and it is considered not only some of his best work, but one of the best courses in the state. It is a tight golf course that is notorious for its vast waste areas and bunkers. Although it has a modest length of 7,259 yards, there is plenty of length within the layout with many of the par 4s stretching past 400 yards. There are two small lakes that come into play. The fourth hole is one of the most well known, and most photographed, in the state. It is a par 5 with a treacherous waste area dominating the right side all the way to the green.

Best golf course on the West side of Florida

We played the Pine Barrens course and it was fantastic. The course was well maintained, challenging, and beautiful overall. I especially loved that there were no houses on the golf course. It was a great morning of golf with peace and quiet, aside from the occasional cow mooing. Pace of play was perfect, we never felt rushed and never had to wait on a hole. It was a great value for the money. My only suggestion is that they look at updating the clubhouse, it was a little dated. Staff was very friendly though and there is a wide selection of apparel available in the pro shop. Even though it’s an hour drive for us to get there I will definitely be back!

Great layout and great price

Haven’t played Pine Barrens in many years and when I did it carried a much higher fee. Can honestly say the layout still rocks. Challenging but not brutal. Grounds are a bit more rough around the edges then in my past visits, but course is a good shape. Check it out if in the area.

Great layout

Fairways and greens were in great condition. Fairways were slow due to heavy rain during the previous afternoon and evening. Greens were receptive and rolled true. Absolutely loved the par 5 14th hole. Highly recommend this course for it's quality, playability, and summer rates.

Worth the ride

The course was great, in fantastic condition, with fast greens. This course is out in the middle of nowhere with no homes on the course, so it's just you and the peace and quiet. It takes me over an hour to get to the course, but it's well well worth it!!!

Hot day for golf

Extremely hot and slow playing because of the foursome in front of us. They played some game which dragged the round out and made for a long day playing in heat in the upper 90’s. Greens were punched maybe 3 weeks ago so they were on the slow end of the spectrum and fuzzy. Other than the slow play from guys who should stay in the driving range and slow greens the course was in very nice condition.

Rain or Shine

Frequent flyer at this course - Love everything about it. This trip, the greens recently underwent aerification, but are healing nicely and the greens are rolling moderately fast. Only suggestion - sunscreen and rain gear seem to be a must during your 18 holes.

Awsome course

What a great layout at a great price! Greens had been punched so putting was slow and bumpy but that was the only flaw and why green fees were super cheap. Would definitely play again and recommend to friends

Love the course. Number 14 appears to be an easy par five. However number 14 is very challenging. Love the course
