Review of Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie
Ok, I admit it – I love Woodbridge Golf Club and I’m a tad biased when it comes to writing an unbiased review of one of my favorite courses. Here’s are just a few reasons why I love Woodbridge Golf Club:
Woodbridge Golf Club made our list of the Best Dallas Courses and GolfDigest rated it 4 stars. Woodbridge truly lives up to its slogan of “the best golf value in Dallas Fort Worth." Give Woodbridge Golf Club a try and I’m sure you’ll agree
The majority of the fairways are tree-lined and if you spray the ball you’ll most likely need to reload. They range from tight to a couple of fairways that are wide open and you can let it rip. The rough is usually fairly wide and playable. Every time that we have played the fairways have been in great shape. Generally speaking, the fairways are flat and you can count on some extra roll.
The greens at Woodbridge Golf Club are a variety of interesting shapes and they range from a tad small to huge. Most are very well guarded by water, trees, or strategically placed huge bunkers – which puts a premium on your approach shots. Every time we’ve played they have been in above average condition, held the ball well, ran true, and at a good speed. Practice putting before you head out because you’re going to find lots of slope and contour and a few tiers that can cause three putts!
The bunkers are in the process of being redone to flatten the faces and add new soft light white sand. The bunkers range from small pot sized (make sure you avoid the hidden small deep pot bunker lined with railroad ties off the left side of the 7th green) to huge multi-fingered monsters and there are 55 of them that you need to miss.
The layout of Woodbridge Golf Club is excellent – lots of variety, lots of challenges, and lots of fun. Some of the holes that we really like include:
Bottom line – a great course that you need to add to your list of must plays.
Rates: $19.00 to $63.00
Service is excellent - very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The grill has some very good food and the practice facilities are excellent - two large practice tees, a 12,000 square foot putting green, and a 9,000 square foot chipping green.
Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
