Getting there...

Course is getting better. Yes there was a lot of drama with the ownership and who to blame for the shut-down and deteriorating conditions. But they have been back open for a couple months now, and each time I play the greens look a little better. Still lots of weeds and rough patches, but hoping come spring-time they will be halfway decent. Fairways and tee boxes are ok, but they are improving as well. For now, the course is playable, but conditions still have a long ways to go. However, I really have confidence that the course will continue to improve. Also, Paul (the new clubhouse pro), is a super nice guy.

Poor course, worse ownership

Oh where do I even start. This course hasn't had competent leadership/ownership since about 2011. Soap operas have been written about less scandalous stories than the management of this place. The greens were actually green sometime circa 2013. They have been bare ground ever since. The greens would actually be better if they were just sand. It's that bad. Never have I seen a course that was actually open in this bad of shape. "WildWeed" would be a drastic improvement, as that would imply that green plant matter is actually present on the property. Last year, the current ownership sold the pro shop, locker rooms, and restaurant to the Seineyard. The current pro shop is a trailer with a structurally deficient half-finished deck that backs up to the pond. The practice range was demolished to build a RV park. The practice green behind the old pro shop has fallen into the same disrepair as the rest of the course. In spite of all the issues we, the regular players, had a glimmer of hope in 2016 when two very nice people agreed to lease the course and begin making much needed improvements. I use the term improvements loosely, as they were merely attempting to get it back to a playable state. Unfortunately, it became clear the situation they walked into when, not only, the fuel tanks were dry(and on a COD basis with the vendor), the electricity was about to be cut off, and the lease on the carts was severely delinquent, but also, the main well pump for irrigation was irreparably damaged. Over the the winter 2017, they achieved positive growth of the Bermuda greens, which is quite a feat considering it goes dormant. Things were looking up. The course was improving by leaps and bounds. Tee boxes were rebuilt, the yardage markers were re-calibrated, and players were appreciating the attention being paid to the course. Unfortunately, this progress wasn't to last. Construction of the RV park on the former practice range began to have severe consequences on the condition of the course. Twice in March 2017, the construction work rendered the irrigation system of the course inoperable. The water lines had been cut as well as the power. Irrigation was restored by the course personnel, much to the chagrin of the ownership, who repeatedly sent threatening text messages to the greens keeper over the course of a few days. The water had been cut again within a week. In an affront to common sense, the ownership claims that there is no need to water the course in early spring, which is THE growing season for bermuda grass. It's obvious the ownership meant to undermine the efforts of the course management by any means necessary, purely on the grounds of ego. Who wants to admit failure when your lessee is doing a better job? To the detriment of every golfer in wakulla county, this insanity has continued, and, as a result, we have decided to send our dollars outside the county, either to Saint James Bay in carabelle, or to any number of courses in Tallahassee that care about their players. It's a sad, sad state of affairs, but for Wakulla county golfers, it is a fact of life.

OVERPRICED

New owners raised the green fees to $24.99 as of 1/1/2017. Price was $19.99 prior, but even that was too much. Greens are non-existent (sandy, bumpy, patches of weeds), and they have been that way for over a year, so I do not see any reason why they would improve. Fairways and tee boxes are nothing to speak of either. Spend the gas money to go somewhere else. New owners also tried to prevent us from using the WCTV certificates that we had purchased. Wildwood is in a good location and has lots of potential. I understand golf courses take a lot of money and upkeep, especially one such as this that was closed for so long. But it has been re-opened long enough, and I have seen no improvement. Recently they had the back 9 closed, went back after it reopened and it looked the exact same. No marshals, groups of 4 and 5 and women playing which really slow it down, no regard for other players. I love Wildwood Golf Course but there needs to be a lot of changes before I will spend my money here. $10 course at best.

Not bad for the money

Course isn't bad for the money. The greens and tee boxes a very patchy right now so good luck making most putts. There were too many groups of five or more so pace of play was bad.

Possibilities

Sure glad I signed up through GolfNow and paid a reduced fee. The course has little grass on the fairways and greens. The layout is good and with a lot of attention, a lot more people will want to play it.

Fun time on a course about 40 minutes from Tallahassee

First time playing here and I would definitely make the 40 minute drive from Tallahassee to play here again. I would say this course is about 2.5/3 stars out of 5. This is nowhere near the 5 stars that the below reviewers are all pushing. Seems suspicious and kind of like the course if pushing people to give fake 5 star ratings, but with that said, this course is in much better condition that I thought it would be and from what it was a few years ago. The practice putting green is currently closed. The greens are getting better, but most have sand throughout and they are not generally great. They are getting closer to being amazing, but I would say they are still a few months from that. Fairways were in decent condition, but you can tell winter grass for sure. Tee boxes were about average. This course is not that long, doesn't have much water at all, and overall is a great fun course to play. I really enjoyed myself on this course and would play again. I didn't see any cart girl and there were some small bathrooms on the course (that need to be upgraded). I heard this place has new owners and they are genuinely trying to make it better. I must say they are doing a good job and I am looking forward to seeing how it will be in the future.

just keeps getting better

Excellent layout and very playable. The new owners and their entire staff have been working tirelessly to get the greens back and they are very close. These guys are first class and they just opened a top notch seafood restaurant for great dining options. Great value and I can't wait until next time.
