About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6459
Slope 144
Rating 71.5
Type Semi-Private
Wentworth Golf Club is routed through a scenic and varied landscape of woods and wetlands. At 6,459 yards, the golf course is relatively short but it offers a demanding, target-style layout. The course has narrow fairways and small greens that run fast. The front nine is routed through towering stands of cypress trees, pines, and mature oaks while the back nine has a more links-style layout that will test your shot-making skills. Water hazards come into play on several holes but the far more prominent features of the course are the massive bunkers that lurk beside the fairways and greens, ready to swallow even slightly errant shots. Careful strategy is required throughout the course in order to avoid losing balls. In addition to the challenging layout, Wentworth G.C. boasts superb conditions that are considered some of the area's best.

Great girls golf getaway

The course was busy, but the pace of play was excellent.

Stopped at

Food was great,fast service, and very friendly service staff.

Only complaint we had was no cart person on golf course, despite it being very busy and hot!

Could Be an Excellent Course But...

course conditions really hurt the overall impression. I am far from a snob when it comes to this but except for the greens (which are good) the rest of the course really needs some attention. Tee boxes are mostly dirt and weeds on some holes, green surrounds are browned out, fairways are dried out, rough, and lacking grass, etc, etc, etc

There are some short par 4's on the front but each of them is kind of interesting, the overall design and use of the land is very good.

I was thinking about becoming an annual member (I like to walk and the front 9 is a truly easy walk, I only played a couple of holes on the back) but quickly decided that if the course is in so much need of attention and irrigation now after all the summer rain I can't trust that there will be a decent course to play in the winter.

I know the golf business is in a tough place right now financially but what's the point of having a course in this condition, particularly when you have such a good track with the potential to really stand out in this area?

Bittersweet...

Really lgood overall vibe. Nice little layout. Risk reward is high, 2 iron or driver - you decide. I think,it was top shelf in its day but now, a bit sketchy around the edges. Traps are junk. Tees are bad. Fairways need help. Greens could be awesome with some TLC. I say can the maintenance staff, hire some real pros, invest in this gem and get it back to a top tier course...

Schizophrenic golf course:

Front nine is hilly with close out of bounds. Back nine is flat with lots of water. Difficult to get into your swing. Very tough -- too tough -- for seniors even from the red tees.

Great course for the money

Best course I have played in a long time for the Money!! Only paid $24.95 on Golf Now, course was in excellent shape, a lot of challenging holes. Played on a Tuesday morning, no waiting on any hole until the 11th hole where a slow foursome let me play through. Will definitely play again on my next trip back to the area

Great Value -- A Hidden Gem

Wentworth used to be a private club and it seems that the high club standards have been carried over by the present staff. From the courtesy in the pro shop to the attentiveness of the wait staff in the restaurant, all is top drawer. By the way, the restaurant is A-1 compared to any short order place in the area. And there's often live music to boot. No need to explore further. For a full scale golf experience, this is the place.

Challenging and fun

Went in the mid day heat. Many narrow fairways. Trees and wetlands come right up to edge on many holes, so you better focus on direction to nstead of distance. All the greens are in great shape and most are large elevated and undulated.

Had a great time. Will be playing again before the winter crowd shows up.

Course was in good shape considering how much rain they’ve been getting. Greeens rolled true for the most part. Tee boxes might need some work, and the collars are a little burnt out, but overall it was a good experience. I’ll go back.

Nice course but tight!

This is definitely a placement course and long hitters want eat this course up with distance. A few holes need some trimming along edges to allow proper views of fairways/greens. I found 3 shots on tee that were punished from overhanging limbs within 20 yards of tee boxes. The fairways and greens were in great shape though! Rolled true and never had a bad lie in fairways. We did follow 2-4 comes but pace remained steady all round and wasn't an issue. I will play again if in the area and recommend to others coming to the area.

First Time Playing - Lovely Course

This was a lovely outing as a first time player of this course. The staff was friendly and provided good recommendations on how to approach the course for us first timers. The starter kept everyone on track so that players were going off on time. The greens were true and rolled at a medium speed. The practice green was representative of the course greens. The fairways in the front nine were tight - a lot of big trees & woods on both sides. The back nine holes had a lot of water but more open than the front. We played the tee boxes for 6053 yards. Ball placement in the fairway is necessary for the approach shots into the greens. If you get out of position on the fairways, then you will have to shape a shot into the green. Note: Many holes penalize you if you go over the green. Get the course booklet if you do not have an app that guides you around the course. This is nice course for this time of the year. The staff was friendly and professional. Electric carts are nice, without GPS. We paid a fair price for the course conditions.
