Florida vacation package: Stay at World Woods Golf Club and play Pine Barrens and Rolling Oaks

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. -- World Woods Golf Club is now offering golf packages with our villas located 6 miles from World Woods Golf Club. Each villa has two or three bedrooms with two twin beds in each.

The Pine Barrens Course at World Woods, is ranked no. 26 in Golf Week's list of "Americas Best Modern Courses." It is a visually stunning blend of native terrain and golf course design.

Named for the many pine trees that line its length, the acclaimed layout is sculpted from an expansive pine forest with surprising and dramatic changes in elevation. The large manicured fairways framed by expansive untamed waste bunkering create a unique golf experience. The course's style has been compared to that of Pine Valley in New Jersey -- the consensus no. 1 course in the world. Pine Barrens offers many intimidating, yet, enjoyable holes.

World Woods' Rolling Oaks Course provides the second world-class layout. An entirely different, yet no less enjoyable experience than playing Pine Barrens, this course's name also gives clue to its design.

Despite being built directly adjacent to the Pine Barrens Course, differences in soil content allow the land to support giant Oak trees draped with Spanish moss that regularly accent the holes. Sharply defined bunkers filled with bleached white sand contrast beautifully with the rich green fairways. These attributes coupled with the many Azalea bushes present in the landscaping are reminiscent of the famed Augusta National.

Dates: Good throughout 2014.

Price range: $152 - $326.
