World Woods Golf Club (Pine Barrens course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1993

In its wonderfully natural and forested setting, World Woods is home to two excellent Tom Fazio designs. Both opened for play in 1993 with the much-admired Rolling Oaks layout complementing the stunning and highly-acclaimed Pine Barrens course.

Pine Barrens is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Florida. The excellent tree-lined parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.

Did you know?

Perhaps uniquely in golf, a fourball group playing the drivable par-4 15th on the Pine Barrens course, recorded scores of 1, 2, 3 & 4 on this hole. The ace was followed by the eagle, then the birdie and then the par. The last player was under enormous pressure to sink his 7-foot putt for par and allow the group to record this remarkable achievement.

Published ranking

2019/20 Golf Digest rating: 82nd best public course in the USA and 27th best course in Florida.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
