Type Resort
Rolling Oaks is one of two championship courses at World Woods Golf Club. The layout offers something completely different from the renowned Pine Barrens course at the club, but it still offers the same amount of challenge and quality. The golf course is named after its landscape of rolling hills and forests of centuries old Oak trees draped with Spanish moss. Lush, rolling fairways lead to undulating greens that are protected by sharply defined, white sand bunkers. Water hazards come into play on three holes. The golf course has a traditional design but the dramatic elevation changes and picturesque landscape covered in azaleas, dogwoods, and magnolia trees really make it stand out. In addition to the two golf courses, World Woods also offers a nine-hole practice course and a circular, 20-acre driving range with target greens and practice bunkers.

Great course as always

Only complaint is that the 18th fairway is really wet and the greens could have been cut a little shorter, they were pretty slow in comparison to past rounds. Regardless, love the course

Best value for your money in area

Rolling Oaks is a fun and playable design, on an incredible tract of land. I had played Pine Barrens about ten years earlier, and absolutely loved the course. I found Rolling Oaks to be an easier layout, but no less beautiful, and actually has more dramatic views and greensites in my opinion.

Course conditions were excellent overall, only problem I found were some tees that had not been mowed in a few days, and had gone to seed head. Must have been mowing that day, because that was not an issue on the back nine. Fazio designs are among my favorite, as he uses the natural roll of the terrain so well, designs holes that stun you visually, as well as define the layout. His use of the local rocks and sand waste areas around greensites was artistic but simple, and I thought the par 3 number 8 hole was as beautifully elegant a hole as you’ll find anywhere.

For the price, both of these courses are absolute must plays. Pine Barrens will challenge your entire game, and Rolling Oaks will give you unparalleled beauty in this area. All that, less than an hour drive from the Tampa airport.

The only drawback is a small, somewhat limited clubhouse, but did get a good beer and sandwich following the round. Also, the carts were quite old, and in need of updating/repair. (Ours had a broken windshield, and very soft handling.)

All in all, an A+ must play courses set on a great tract of completely natural land in south central Florida.

Rolling Oaks

Really nice course - we ordered food at the turn which turned out to be painful - took 5 minutes to order and then 20 min when they finally arrived with the food while we were on the 11th hole - very cumbersome

Go!

Overall the course is in great shape. A few bare spots. Huge hilly greens. Lots of slope to them. Tough pins today. Downhill putts are tricky. Pick the appropriate tees and you'll have a good time.

Love this course

Love this course, it is my favorite place to play. The course is always in impeccable shape, the layout fits my game and the scenery is beautiful. If I had to pick one thing they could improve, it is to have a practice area for chips and bunker shots. They have a nice Driving Range and several practice greens but no place to practice bunker shots.

Good course

Always worth the trip, typically, good pace of play. Maybe it was the group in front, 4 1/2 hrs is to long.

Love World Woods!

This course is awesome. The only reason conditions weren't good today was because they got 6 inches of rain last night so it was cart path only. But still enjoyed a great game on a gem of a course!

cart path only

the worst day ever, did not know that almost all 18 holes were going to be cart path only.the course was very busy with some very slow people, mostly elderly, i had to wait forever to hit a ball from every hole.I had already been on the course 4 hours and could only reach the 12 hole because of how long it took people to walk from and back to the carts.After the 12th hole i decided to pass by the people in front of me expecting to find an opening, did not , everyone in same rut, i went home after 12 holes.

Just wet

Pretty disappointed to find out all the practice facilities minus the iron range and two putting greens by the first tees were closed. Raining when i got there so course was soaked. Would have chosen another course closer to me like the LPGA Jones course which has similar practice grounds had i known about the former things. Despite being wet, course was gourgeous. Fairways were deep green and full, greens were fast and rolled true. No aerification holes whatsoever. Scenery and elevation changes were superb. Will totally come back again when it's dry, but I'm calling ahead next time to make sure everything is open so i don't make the same mistake twice. All in all, 3/5.
