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.

Mostly wide fairways, lots of elevation changes, greens good, plenty challenging, out in the country as there are no houses on the course friendly staff, doesn't get much better than this for Florida golf.

Rolling Oaks is a player friendly course that won’t drive the average golfer crazy. Beautiful day played as a single for $19 on golf now (using my $10 reward). Didn’t catch anyone till the 8th hole and was waved through a couple of times. Finished in 3 hrs. Course is in great shape, greens are nice, but a lot of undulations. Not many easy two puts, have to pay attention to pin placement to be on correct side.

My wife and I first played Rolling Oaks 5 years ago and it remains on our must play list each time we visit Florida from the UK. It is my wife’s favourite course period and certainly in my top 3. The course was in excellent condition with the fairways outstanding, the greens were true if a little slower on this visit. The staff were friendly and as we played in the afternoon the pace of play was fine. A particular feature of World Woods is the absence of traffic noise and housing. This makes for a relaxing round and it was a pleasure to see the abundant wildlife. This course has tees for golfers of all abilities; testing for the better players but playable by those with higher handicaps. This is very much a place to go play golf. The restaurant is pretty basic , but hey there are plenty of places to go and eat.

Played Easter Sunday with my Son. World Woods is by far the best course we play in Florida.

It is always in immaculate condition. Tee boxes are great, fairways are lush and green, traps are white and the greens are magnificent. World Woods is quiet, no homes and no road noise. All you hear are birds and turkeys. We live in Clearwater Fl and we get up to World Woods about 5 times a year.

Beautiful course, well maintained, great staff. A bit pricey in the winter time but once the time changes in the spring you can play in the afternoon for a reasonable rate. Both courses at World Woods are always in great shape but I prefer Rolling Oaks over Pine Barrens just because it suits my game better. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. The practice facilities are nice but be sure to putt on the practice green at the first tee for a good feel of speed of the on course greens. Lots of undulations in the large greens so putting can be a challenge but they roll true. I live about 20 miles from the course so I play here every chance I get. Golf Now always has great rates in the summer time if you can take the Florida heat.
