Great 9 hole course with challenging greens. Greens were immaculate, and extremely tough for a public course. Quite enjoyable, I highly recommend it.

Realistic Review

I'm almost hesitant to heap praise on this course for fear more people will play it...but they deserve it. The tee boxes, fairways, and greens continue to remain in good to great shape. The only downside here is that the majority of the bunkers need help....so avoid them if you can, LOL.

The staff is tremendous. This is my fourth time out here this year, and I have yet to encounter any issue with 'pace of play'. All of the golfers I've interacted with here have been courteous and followed all required etiquette and social distancing practices.

Last, let's be honest, folks. You can play 9 holes here for well under $25 with a cart included, and that's AMAZING value. I don't know what the expectation is that would lead anyone to rate this less than 5 stars in that area.

Good as always

Pace of play was average, considering this was a holiday and course was fully booked you can't expect too much. They've done a good job here keeping the course green and playable despite the drought conditions. It's an excellent value.

Charming local course discovery

Second time playing this course since first time last Thursday. Beautiful but challenging greens, this course is very well kept despite drought conditions. Very picturesque course with bonus of being fairly easy for women starting out learning gold. Highly recommend and this will now be one of our regular courses even though it is off the beaten path.

Despite the lack of rain, this course remains in good shape. Bunkers need some work, but they are not unplayable.

Loved it

The course is worth the trip. Obviously because it was Completely full On a Sunday. Loved everything about the course except we had to wait at every hole. I’d definitely go back though.

Woodhaven beautiful course

The value here for the price is phenomenal. The course has been kept in amazing shape even with a drought. Greens are good. Pin locations are always keeping you guessing. First year playing this course and I’m hooked

Been a while

I have not played here in ten years or so. No I remember why. Could be a hidden gem but dated and very run down. Selling range balls that the kid had to go and pick up by hand. Just don’t sell them. Pace of play is a funeral

Awesome Staff

The starter was first and foremost about the satisfaction of her golfers. The course is a very solid run, but the kindness and golfer first attitude of the staff is the reason I will keep coming back here!
