Course Reviews

Played this for a tourney. Greens are SMALL and circular. It's best to have your chipping skills in order for this course, you'll need them with the small greens. Some really interesting holes, especially on the back nine.

Woodland Hills currently only has the North Course and only 18 total holes. I believe the South Course is being developed into houses. The front 9 is very average, but the back 9 is much cooler. Almost all the greens are very small and circular. Fairways, greens, and tee boxes are in okay shape. They have no twilight rates and I paid $39 for 18 holes and a cart on a Saturday.

Short course with very small, hard greens. High approach shcts are needed here to score well.

nice course has 27 holes 18 to the north. very challenging older course with mature trees
