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 layout. Generous fairways surrounded by oak trees in rural sitting. No houses on golf course makes for a great golf outing.. mix of small and large rolling greens that’ were faster than other Florida greens. I love this course!

Great course if you don't mind the drive

Course always seems to be in top shape. We were the first two off and played in 3 hours. Would have been quicker but the first couple holes it was real misty/foggy and couldn't see our tee shots. Plus it was cart path only. Luckily the started came and found us on hole 4 and said it was changed and only about half the holes were cart path only now. He gave us a new score cards with them highlighted and they were marked on course as well.

Everything great as always about this course. I

Great Layout!

Great layout with varied tees that will challenge all skill levels. Generous fairways, set in trees such that you do not see other groups too often. Peaceful! Good pace of play.

The truth is better in the end

We were told the course was in great shape. We were told its a top100 course. Well the TRUTH was ,Cart path only, casual water the size of football fields. 5.5 hours to play in 97 degree heat. 916 tee time , teed off at 935. Thats alot in Florida summer heat. Every bunker was unplayable. No discount, 13.00 for practice balls. Then when we were leaving the pro shop was telling another guy on the phone how great a shape the course was in. Then he offered the next golfer to switch to Pine Barrens because the course we played was " not really playable". What a poor business decision to take your money and assume they will never see us again. We live in Ocala!!!

Rolling Oaks at World Woods

This was the last day of aeration of the greens so they were in very good shape. Course as usual was very beautiful with Sandhill cranes and wild turkeys running free. Maintenance was being performed throughout the course but employees were respectful of guest playing. Overall very good experience.

Great Place wish it was less money

I love World Woods and always have. I just wish it would lower the price more often that way it would be used more. Great place though.

Rainy afternoon round

Heavy rain arrived just in time for my round; this had two notable effects. One, it emptied the course. Two, it turned the round into a cart path only slogfest across beautifully soaked turf. I say “beautifully” because the week before, the course was starting to show signs of drying out due to a long, early heatwave. Condition of turf is ideal throughout, but recent heavy rains have really taken a toll on some of the bunkers, especially the deep bunkers below some greens (Pine Barrens is similarly affected).

Great course, but the carts, cart paths and practice chipping area are poor.

Course and course condition is very good. However, for a top 100 course, the condition of the carts is atrocious. I have had a tire blow twice in the last three weeks. Cart paths need immediate attention and the practice area, which has a great chipping area has a sign that says you can only putt, no chipping. Totally ridiculous. Again, great course, just be prepared to walk a little until they can bring you a different cart.

Play it again and again

Great fun. No condos or somebody’s backyard pool to look at. All good holes except for the ones that need tree removal( 6,11,13,14,18)

Only issue other than the course consistently kicks my butt is the amenities. I like the fact that it’s all golf but at 90 degrees they need more than one cart serving 36 holes.

This is a great place as is it’s sister Pine Barrens. Get there and play them more than once.

Wonderful Golf

I’ve been coming here for 20 years and think it is the best golf for the $ in the country. Brandon or Streamsong might have a little in quality but not when you compare the $49 I paid on May 1st

That said I do have some thoughts for improvement. First get a chainsaw. Pine Barrens probably needs it more but Rolling Oaks needs a cutting on #6,14,18 would so much improve the holes.

The other nego was not golf related but when we finished at 5:15 the clubhouse was locked including restrooms. I am a golfer and could care less if they close but on a 90 degree day they really need to provide some comfort services.

Little grumbles aside this place is golf. If you haven’t been put it at the top of your list. If you have been you know what I’m talking about
