Golf Course Information
Willow Wood Golf Club first opened for play in 1998. The 18-Hole golf course is situated on the lovely sprawling countryside three miles south of downtown Portland. Just minutes off both I-96 and Charlotte Highway, the course is thoughtfully carved out of the rolling hills and mature woodlands. It features creeks, wetlands, ponds, expansive meadows and gently contoured hills, with several pronounced elevation changes. It is evident that golf course architect J. John Gorney incorporated as many of these natural land characteristics as possible when designing the course. This diverse, naturally beautiful terrain lent itself most admirably to his grand vision, culminating in a wonderfully scenic and challenging, thoroughly enjoyable golf experience for players of ALL abilities.
A practical and welcome change for most golfers from the excessively long courses that have become so prevalent, Willow Wood is a more sensible, commonly manageable 6,200 yards (back tees) golf course, emphasizing quality shot-making rather than exceptional length. Our positive feedback continues to indicate that this finds favor with nearly ALL. A complementing unique feature of the course, the real hallmark at Willow Wood, is the definitive variety of shots necessary, offering a nearly unparalleled chance to use virtually "every club in the bag." Several of the holes can be played with distinctively different strategies, depending on the players whims and/or the current prevailing conditions, and there is a tempting mix of risk/reward opportunities sure to test the mettle of ANY golfer. Even the most accomplished players have fallen in love with our scenic and challenging "little" championship golf course.
Another appealing attraction for many is our smartly manicured and maintained Practice Area. It provides a pleasantly serene atmosphere ideal for working on your game. Should your game be in need of a little "special attention", our seasoned PGA Golf Professional Don Roe has an extensive teaching background and is extremely effective at helping you get the most out of your game.
