Although the original nine holes of the South course at Woodmont Country Club was known as the “Iron Duke,” the course it morphed into (an additional nine were added later) is considered the easier of the two 18-hole routes on the property. This is not to say that its quality should be ranked accordingly. Many consider this, the more recent of the two Alfred Tull designs, as the better option at Woodmont versus the more championship-oriented North course.
The back tees at the South play at less than 6,700 yards. Although the yardage and slope rating may be higher at the North course, almost every water hazard on the property will be found on the South, most prominently at its collection of par threes. A major difference that a wise 36-hole guest may notice is the difference in turf between the two courses: While the North features bentgrass fairways, the South employs Zoysia.
The club goes beyond having two ranked courses, to having one of the most advanced training facilities in the state, which includes a four-acre short game area, indoor hitting bays and putting greens (to accompany the range and two putting areas outdoors) as well as eight PGA professionals on staff.
