This facility has two Tom Fazio eighteen hole championship courses and a nine hole executive course. Pine Barrens is the signature course for the club. It is a tight, intimidating layout named for its large number of pine trees and barren waste areas. The design demands many long carry shots over waste areas, as well as delicate placement shots to small landing areas. Generally, trees come into play on either the left or right side of each fairway, but rarely both. Two small lakes also come into play on this course. "Golf Digest" rated Pine Barrens as the 3rd "Best Public Course" in the state, and the 8th "Best in State" course from 1995 through 1998. "GOLF Magazine" chose it 11th among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 1998, 38th among the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." for 1997 and 1999, and 39th in the same category for 1995. "GOLFWEEK" awarded it 13th in the category of "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1997, 11th for 1998 and 9th for 1999. The Rolling Oaks Course is a traditional design with rolling fairways lined with live oaks, dogwood, and magnolia trees. The large greens feature multiple tiers and cavernous protective bunkers. Azaleas are planted along the manicured fairways and greens. Water hazards (two lakes) come into play on three holes. "Golf Digest" rated the Rolling Oaks course as the 6th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996, and they also ranked it 73rd among the "Top 75 Upscale Courses" for the same year. The same publication rated it the 19th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and 26th best for 1997-98. "GOLF Magazine" has selected the Rolling Oaks Course 33rd among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 1998. "GOLFWEEK" awarded it 67th among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1997, 76th for 1998 and 63rd for 1999. Locals consider the nine hole Irons Course as a great place for beginning and junior golfers, plus it's also an excellent facility for practicing your short game. This club additionally boasts of having one of the finest practice facilities in the country. World Woods offers three challenging practice holes, including a par 3, 4, and 5. A circular driving range covers over twenty-two acres of land and features eight separate teeing areas, including target greens, bunkers, and trees. The circular shape offers an opportunity to practice under various wind and sun conditions. Sand bunkers and chipping greens are also a part of the practice area. The putting course consists of two acres of undulating greens that guarantees a challenge to everyone.

great fairways, horrible greens, Apr 06, 2004
|reviewer: Richard Price
|We(7 of us) just returned from World Woods. Pine Barrens has picturesque fairways and horrible greens (where is the grass?). Its sister course, Rolling Oaks, had acceptable greens. Not ready for prime time.|
