I have played Mt. Woodson about half a dozen times now. I just recently started getting back into golf and they are the closest course to my house.

The course is beautiful and if you are not hitting straight can be quite challenging. There are several par 4's where it may make sense to leave the driver in the bag and face a 100-125 yard approach instead of a down hill lie for 40 yards.

The only thing I would suggest would be a little bit better signage for the folks playing the first or second time on the course. There are a few spots, like moving from 1-2 where you are not exactly sure if you are going the right way. I mostly play twilight and the price of 30 is well worth it. Speed of play, like with every course, depends on the day. I have completed entire rounds in 3 hours, but also a little over 5 on busier days. I shoot low 90's for perspective. Playing again in a couple of hours, so it defintiely keeps me wanting to come back.

Course conditions were the best I've seen in a long time tee to green. Pace of play although not too bad, needed to have a Marshall to prod 2 groups ahead of us. Be sure to take 2 sleeves of balls if your not playing your best.

Don’t let the drive stop you from giving this course a try. Course is in great shape and though short, definitely a challenge for your game. Beautiful scenery on the drive to the course as well as from every hole on the course.

It was my first time there but definitely won’t be my last. Give it a try!!

Had heard about this place for many years. Not until a recommendation was made to play here did I know what an absolute gem of a place this was. Will come back here with family and friends.

Course is in incredible condition. The greens are fast. Make sure you read properly. Lot of elevation variations. Really fun course.

Staff is friendly and give outstanding service, from the kitchen, starter and front desk. All very happy to see you, seriously.

Golf clientele on course had high level of etiquette and game. Made the day move along without being pushed.

That’s all I have to say about that.

Course in good shape (except tee boxes still recovering from being punched). Cold and drizzling all day, but didn't keep very many golfers away. Pretty slow round for a weekday (admittedly a Friday). We (a threesome) were behind another threesome and still had to wait on every hole after number 2 - round took about 4.5 hours. Woodson is very tight, hilly, with a lot of foliage, so someone is always looking for a lost ball. Still a fun day and a nice course.

I've played here about 25 times over 20 years and I thought the conditions Wednesday were the best I've seen at MW.

Of course, we were first off and flew through our round in 2:45 so obviously our pace was excellent.

Fog meant our first 8 holes were largely blind so that might be an issue before 7:30 or so on some days.

All fairway lies were great. Greens were very receptive and some long approaches just stuck when they hit. I always love to fix a big ball mark!
