The course was truly a pleasure to play on. Great fairways, beautiful greens, and friendly staff. Thank you.
I'm a Ft. Worth native and highly recommend this course. The course is under new ownership and management and is on the comeback. The greens are as good as anywhere in he area this time of year, you can tell that they have put significant capital in rehabing these. The fairways are on the mend, from talking with the pro, they are in the process of addressing irrigation issues. Everything else was great, stop by the 19th hole for a beer after the round. Overall, would highly recommend this course.
Let me clarify. I did not say Woodhaven has the worst greens in the area. What I said was of the area courses that I have played (Tangle Ridge, Walnut creek, and Rolling Hills) Woodhaven's greens were inferior. I could not possibly know if they are the worst greens in the area as I have not played every course around here.
I appreciate your zeal and love of this old course and I too hope it returns to the condition it was once in. I am aware that the management team is making improvements and hope they succeed. I just wish they would accelerate the pace. I am hoping to return some day. Good luck and lets all pray for much needed rain!
Oldmember: I've played at multiple courses all through this area, and I stand by that these greens are as good as any for this time of year. I feel like your comments are negative and misleading for people looking to try out a new course. Are there better courses in the area? Sure. But this course is far from the worst and is showing a lot of improvement the past 6 months.
The greens are far from "as good as anywhere this time of year". I have played at four other area courses this summer and Woodhaven greens were the worst. Have they improved? Yes. Are they good? No. Why are they "addressing" problems with the irrigation system? Seems like that should have been done before we got into the heat of the summer. Keep in mind the new management is the same management that ran off a significant number of members in the last year or so.
Course is improving, fairways a bit rough, but love the roll out on my drives.
Course staff are doing a great job,
During the week afternoons pace of play is great.
Looking forward to returning for more play
Country Club? Really?
Well maintained, hilly, tree lined course, at one time. Not any more. The rock hard brown fairways tell me the sprinkler system still may have some issues. There are piles of sand in the traps that need to be spread out. That is a good sign. Tee boxes are pretty brown much like the fairways. Greens have improved but have a long way to go. I am not an expert but if I were to guess they are probably running about 5 on the stimpmeter. If the course doesn't get significant rain it is going to be in trouble.
I question those folks that say the management team has the place heading in the right direction. It is obvious from the run down conditions that they are not serious about reviving this, one time, fun course. The potholes in the parking lot, the dilapidated driving range net, the washed out cart path between 5 and 6 (which has been that way for well over a year) all point to a course that is barely limping along. Probably the highlight of the day was the grass on the practice tee. It was pretty nice. Of course the used practice balls from Colonial kind of take away from that country club feel. The gentleman in the pro shop, the beverage cart driver and the halfway house attendant were all quite friendly.
If you are looking for something above average or maybe even a little bit high end you will be disappointed. If you want golf on the east side of Fort Worth your dollars would probably be better spent going across I 30 to Meadowbrook. It is a muni but you know that going in.
I wish the folks at Woodhaven well and hope the course can be revitalized. Unfortunately at this point I am not very optimistic.
Course was challenging. Greens were a little spotty. Reminds me of Texas Hill country courses with changes in elevation.
Making a comeback!
Under new management, Woodhaven golf course is making some much needed improvements. The greens are better than I remember and the staff is very nice. The course is definitely making a change in the right direction. I hope they keep improving.
Well ok, but this could be better
This time when I played Woodhaven, the guys were actively working on the greenside sprinkler systems. This is a good thing as the greens are slowly coming back, but they are still too long and slow. In the meantime, I hope Woodhaven doesn't lose the tees and the fairways. It's tough coming back and it's been hotter than usual...even for Texas. Yet if this course is going to recover, now is the time.
Not a country club
Course is in awful shape!
In almost every green there were dead spots, just dirt no grass at all.
Fairways were super thin, looked like the place hasn’t see water in weeks.
No one at the turn house even though it was open so we couldn’t even buy a drink.
I a surprise it has country club in its name because it is not in the standards of what a country club should be, the whole place is simply run down and it looks like no one has taken care of anything in years
Challenging layout with a variety of shots involved. Greens were nice and ball rolled true. Nice 19th hole area with plenty of room and televisions all around. All the staff was very friendly. We are going back for sure to play again.
