Woodhill CC is a club with immense tradition and you can feel it everywhere. The course itself stays very true to its original form. The land overall has a decent roll to it. My favorite hole was the par 3 second which was somewhat Volcano-esque and required you to hit the green or face a difficult up hill recovery. Seven was a nice short dog leg par with an interesting green. Nine is a really weird whole that essentially requires a slice off the tee as it dog legs quickly and hard to the right. The other awkward hole was the 200 yard par 3 13th as it has a tree that over hangs most of the green requiring a hard draw to even attempt hitting the green. The course does finish with a strong stretch over a rolling piece of the property from 15-18.
Woodhill seems a bit caught in time and some of the tree overhangs show that. It has a lot of Ross feeling holes with elevated tees and up hill approaches to raised up greens. A bit too much quirk but solid overall.
