The longest hole on the course is # 9, a par-5 that plays to 552 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 154 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 14, a 435 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Woods Valley Golf Club is # 3, the 154 yard par-3.

Woods Valley is like playing two different nines. The front nine is basically flat and a bit crammed but through the use of mounding, the holes seem separate. The back nine goes back into native coast live oaks and feels completely different. Both nines have their share of tight holes and have about 3 lakes each. The greens were very good, fast, but a bit hard as many iron shots took huge first bounces. Bunkers are all in good shape and fairways were 90% grass with some bare spots. Some of the lakes were in bad shape, drained or very low in water. The course is fun to play, not overly long, but a straight ball is a must. Well priced and a good challenge.

This was my first time playing this course and it will not be my last time. The course was difficult but not a killer, and the greens were in great shape. As a matter of fact one of the marshals mentioned that they recently got a new grounds keeper and he has done an outstanding job. The staff was friendly and the food was good and priced right.

The quality of this course is very dependant on weather conditions. Subject to frost/winter and heat/summer. The operators have made efforts to improve consistency of course conditions. Front and back nine are almost like different course.

This course will never live up to what their plans for it were. They simply ran out of money while they were building the development. Could have really been a high class area. Golf course is decent, doesn't get very much play still, so its usually in decent shape. You still can get some funky lies in the fairway, however.

I enjoy playing this course. It is always challenging and the staff is always friendly. The marshals keep a good pace of play and they are friendly and helpful.

Fun layout. Looks like the greens were punched a couple weeks ago, they were a bit bumpy/sandy. Would like to play again when greens are in good shape.

Improvements continue on the course. Once complete should be even more challenging and fun to play.
