The practice facilities at World Woods are pretty much second to none, here you see the gigantic putting course, but they also have a 360 degree range, and iron range, and a 3 hole practice course.
#1 - This approach is a mid to long iron to a small target that's guarded by a deep bunker on the right.
#2 - Hit a good tee shot here on this monster par 4.
#2 - The approach shot needs to be accurate as this green pitches hard from right to left.
#3 - This hole reminded us of 16 at Augusta... water left, green pitching from right to left. This is one of the best looking holes on the course.
#4 - Another scenic hole. Don't miss this drive to the right or you're in big trouble. A good drive here can give you a chance at getting home in two.
#5 - A good par 4 that requires some thought off the tee. A driver down the right hand side gives you the best angle into the green but the fairway gets much narrower in your landing zone.
#5 - This elevated green requires a well struck approach in order to get to pin high. the slightest miscalculation or mishit will leave you struggling to make par.
#7 - This is a good par 3 with a really tricky green.
#8 - Oneof the best holes on the course... hit a power fade off the tee and get ready to hit a great approach.
#8 - We loved how this green was surrounded by the waste area. This approach is visually interesting, intimidating, and fun. This is probably the best green site on the course.
#9 - If you hit this fairway, you've got a short iron in your hand but this green is no easy target to hit.
#10 - A long par three with a green that slants hard from back to front. This green is slanted like this so that it can slow the momentum of a ball struck by a hybrid or fairway wood.
#11 - A demanding par 4 four both the drive and the approach need to be near perfect to hit this green in regulation.
#11 - Hit a solid mid / long iron, 2 putt, and take your par every time here.
#12 - The tee shot to the most difficult, most unfair hole on the course. hit it straight and you still might not get home in two.
#12 - we each hit good drives and had about 240 left into the wind, up the hill, all carry over the bunker...
#12 - ... then navigate this wildly undulating green. 12 is just a bad hole.
#13 - This hole moves hard to the right at about 260 yards off the tee.
#14 - This turtle shell shaped green is one of the more difficult ones at World Woods.
#15 - We weren't a fan of the second shot on this par 5. There's basically no room to lay up so pull out your 3 wood and hit it over the waste bunker that divides the fairway.
#15 - You can really hit it close on this hole if you use the slope of the green to your advantage.
#16 - We weren't fans of the short par 4 either. if you laid up off the tee, this was the angle you had... no reward for hitting a smart shot.
#16 - Another long iron or hybrid length par 3. It's one of the better looking par threes on the course.
#17 - this medium length par 4 also has a green complex which also runs along the waste bunkers.
#18 - The tee shot on the last hole requires a hard draw. You've really got to hit this one or else you want make the corner of this dogleg left.
#18 - 18 offers a good approach shot but we didn't feel it was anything overly special.
