Rolling Oaks at World Woods Golf Club




Florida, USA

In early 2022, Rhebb & Johns was hired by Cabot Citrus development group to redesign Rolling Oaks Golf Course at World Woods Resort in Brooksville, Florida. After several months of onsite study of the property including preliminary design work, Rhebb & Johns and the Cabot group decided upon a comprehensive remodel of the property that combined their favorite design characteristics of the late designer Dr. Alister MacKenzie.

Design characteristics such as grand fairways and broadly sloped greens like Augusta National. Intricate bunkering style and placement arrangements like Pasatiempo and Cal Club. Old world charm and feel like Palmetto and the Meadow Club. The vision was to combine these various elements and characteristics into an experience not found in Florida golf.

Joining the team and design efforts was the talents of Brett Hochstein of Hochstein Golf Design, and Joe Hancock of Hancock Golf. Due to shifting project goals, planning delays, and scheduling conflicts, the design was never realized in the ground. The decision not to proceed was made in the interest of both groups and Rhebb & Johns continue to pursue future opportunities to develop their vision of a Dr. Alister MacKenzie inspired golf experience.
