Course Reviews


Great Golf Course and amenities!!!

Me and my friend decided we would go up to World of Sports and get a fun game of nine holes in. We arrived at 6:30 PM we everything was fine until we got to the last hole. When we got to hole 8 the was a very rude black man on a golf cart riding around we were on hole 8 the man decided to come and talk to us even though there was no reason. We are no where close to being pro or even intermediate golf players this was only my third or forth time ever playing. The man asked us what hole we were on and we politely told him we we're on hole 8 but over shot. The man didn't seem to care and drove off. On hole 9 we were about two or three strokes in when the man came and pestered us again. He asked us how many balls we had shot and we told him only one we were the only two people on the front nine. He then asked us what we were doing on the 17th hole when we had not even came close to hole 17. He then told us very very rudely that we were taking too long and needed to get off the course as soon as we could. I then found the man again and asked for his name and to see the manager. The manager was even more rude than the black man. She told us that we shouldn't have taken more than 30 minutes our game ended at 7:40 PM. She then blamed me for everything and said that I did not know how to play and shouldn't even be on a golf course. I was very offended and feel very disrespected, I will not be returning and will not refer anyone to go there. Customers are what run your business if you don't respect them what kind of business are you running? I think the remodeling was and is the biggest waste of my tax dollars that course should be shut down or given proper management.

Played several times last summer through the drought, I keep finding myself coming back because this course was in the best shape for the area, the fair way and greens were always in good shape. Dave Peru and staff did/do a good job of turf management. You have my business.

Unlike most par-3's, World of Sports ranks as a legitimate golf course, albeit a course whose longest hole is 347 yds. Why is it legitimate? The greens match the size and quality of greens at most full-length courses, with quality "carpeting" and a proper fringe so that a golfer CAN work on his short game. World of Sports also boasts an interesting layout with many "looks-good/feels-good" holes. A golfer could have the blindfold removed on about half of the tees, and not realize he was on a "par-3" course (hence the high score for scenery).
My only reservation would be the relatively high greens fee ($18 for walkers, $29 w/cart) Otherwise, considering how frustrating most par-3 courses can be, this one is highly recommended.

this is a good starter course for young children predomantly a par three staff is nice but course is horrible. alot of maintenace needs to be done or figure out a way to make holes longer three 4 of the holes you migh as well hit with your putter off the tee they are so short. if you have a child just starting out then this course would be great for you but if your looking for a little challenge take my advice and go else where
