The Woodlake Country Club boasts of its world class golf courses that have been attracting all sorts of golfers from the various parts of the globe. The Palmer Course and the Maples Course serve as the testimony for the area’s excellent condition as well as the ingenuity of Ed Seav, Arnold Palmer, and the late Ellis Maples. Set in the flat and rolling terrains of Sandhills, these layouts already served as the host for several golf competitions including the Carolina’s PGA Match Play Tournament as well as the North Carolina State High School Championship to name a few.
The Palmer Course offers the 18-hole championship golf with the medium-length layout. From the back tees, golfers will have the 6,882-yard par-72 play with the course rating of 72.9 and a slope rating of 133 that often tests the skills of the professionals. Considered as an Arnold Palmer masterpiece, this layout is full of surprises leaving some of the golfers unaware of the layout’s traps and obstacles. The Palmer also features the well-maintained heat-tolerant greens, the nine holes that are wooded, and the remaining nine holes that follow a link style.
The Maples Course on the other hand is another 18-hole layout that offers the 6,791-yard par-72 play. The layout was given a slope rating of 134 and a course rating of 73.2. The Maples’ #1 through #4 holes has been surrounded by water and the other five holes were incorporated with the sand bunkers. The #18 hole that plays the 523-yard, par-5 would require golfers a tee shot over the water all the way to the bunkered dogleg left fairway and another approach shot that crosses over the water that ends up to a small green.
So whether it’s for a round of golf or relaxing with nature, this golf oasis will surely give you the experience that is beyond imagination.
