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.

JWH09,

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!


Commented on 07/16/2018

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.


Commented on 07/16/2018

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.

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.

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.

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

Tee boxes are good. Fairways are average and you can tell they are really trying to get their greens where they need to be. Overall Impresions and experience was positive. We finished 18 in right around 3 hrs both times during the week. If you can get out during the week this is a good track. Not sure about how busy the weekends are. $40 on a Saturday is the max I would pay for the current shape this course is in. Think Whitestone but older.

For a golf course that ends in the name Country Club I expected more of the looks of the course. I expected nicer Fairways and greens. For this type of course the price was about average after booking it on golf now. If I had to pay more than $32 with tax I would not waste my money.

This course is a rolling terrain in a club community with lots of trees. I've seen low scores here but they came with consistent shots to the middle of the fairways. Number 4 has to be one of the narrowest fairways in town, very intimidating. I think most of the holes favor a left handed playe but I could be wrong.

So the last time I played here was before the greens really had a chance to grow in as a result of some hot weather. The greens, although a little long and slower than what they should've been, are growing in nicely. Fairways are much improved although I managed to find a couple of bare spots. If this course can keep its maintenance personnel, they should be ok. I actually saw others on the course and activity going on within the clubhouse this time. Hoping that Woodhaven can continue to comeback.

Course is in good condition. The day I played the carts had ball & club cleaners that were filled & free range balls. It is in an older neighborhood and I have heard there have been several armed robberies of customers in the past. They do have a Security Patrol/Marshall on duty. I had no problem during my round.

Woodhaven is a great layout but definitely needs some TLC. Greens have dead spots everywhere, fairways have more yellow than green and most of the bunkers are not playable. It’s terrible that ownership has allowed this course to fall apart. Hopefully someone who understands how to run a golf course will buy it and bring it back

had a great tie on this course today. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens all looked pretty good. I loved the elevation changes throughout the course. I liked the variation in some wide open fairways and some narrow. This course will test the beginner to the intermediate player. The staff told me there have been some changes in the groundskeeping dept. and the condition of the course will get even better. As you can see from the previous reviews the course may have been in some bad shape a few months back. I will be back to ply here sooner than later. thanks to all for a good time!

This course is in bad condition. The fairways are full of weeds, the traps lack sand, the greens are in bad shape, dry and patchy.

This course use to be private, so if expecting pristine you will be disappointed. It is better than some municipals. Greens are on the rebound from the winter season. If your looking to practice the price is right, and not overcrowded.
