The World Woods Golf Club

A Brooksville Florida Golf Course

World Woods - A Brooksville Florida Golf Course

If you are planning a Florida golf trip, World Woods in Brooksville has just about everything you could ask for with two great Tom Fazio courses (Pine Barrens and Rolling Oaks), a nine hole executive course, and perhaps the finest practice facility in the country. Pine Barrens is currently ranked among the top 100 public courses in the country by Golf Digest, and Rolling Oaks is ranked as one of the top 30 public courses in Florida.

Course Review

At just under 7,300 yards from the tips, the Pine Barrens course is a stiff test for scratch golfers with wide fairways and five sets of tee boxes to make the course enjoyable for golfers of every level. Fazio uses the natural terrain and native pines to frame each hole in a magnificent layout that is reminiscent of Pine Valley in New Jersey. The Rolling Oaks course is a very different layout, with towering oak trees covered in Spanish moss and azaleas that bring to mind Augusta National. A bit longer than Pine Barrens, Rolling Oaks also offers multiple tee boxes that make the course challenging, yet fun for expert and novice golfers alike. Take a video tour and see what awaits you at World Woods.

And the practice facilities are second to none. The World Woods Practice Park is a twenty-acre facility with target greens, target fairways, bunkers, and multiple grass teeing stations on four sides. In addition, there are 3 practice holes including a par 5.  

Accommodations

World Woods is just under an hour north of Tampa International Airport, and there is a Holiday Inn Express located just 15 minutes from the course.

GolfDay Rating

The GolfDay rating for World Woods is 98.7, the highest of any non-resort facility in the state of Florida.  

Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club

Jack Nicklaus designed Golf Course

If you are planning a trip to Myrtle Beach this spring, give some thought to the Course Jack Nicklaus designed at Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club on the coast in Georgetown county. At just over 7,000 yards from the tips, the course will give scratch golfers all the challenge they can ask for while multiple tee boxes provide golfers at every level the opportunity to test their skills to the maximum and enjoy the course without requiring a 300 plus yard tee shot. As with all Nicklaus designs, the Pawleys Plantation course offers a variety of options for playing just about every hole, so you have to give some thought to strategy. There are plenty of bunkers placed strategically throughout the course with a fair amount of water, but rarely will you find a forced carry without being offered an alternative play that can be equally effective. You will also enjoy the beautiful views, immaculate conditions, and the natural setting on which Jack has laid down this gem. To get a better idea of what awaits you at Pawleys Plantation, take a quick tour of the course—you’ll see it’s something very special. Or listen to what the Golden Bear himself has to say.

The practice facilities at Pawleys Plantation are top notch as well, including a grass driving range with targets, putting green and short game area with bunker.
