The joint membership of the Woodcreek and WildWoode Country Clubs have a pair of golf courses to choose from, and the Tom Fazio design at the former tends to be the more celebrated of the pair. The club, located in the northeast suburbs of Columbia, routes around natural water features and a residential development (but the golf course is largely separated by a barrier of trees).
Fazio makes large swathes of sand a returning theme, especially on the front nine. Numerous huge bunkers run up the right side of the No. 7 par four, and an additional pair of bunkers make for a sizable Lion’s Mouth installation ahead of the putting surface. The longest sand hazard on the course comes at No. 4, where it snakes for nearly 300 yards along the right side of the hole. Players may be grateful for its presence, however, as it stops many slices from ending up in the lake.
Many will remember the par three at No. 15, where Fazio logically placed a green on a natural island within Tucker Lake, before the route continues on its way at the other side of the water.
