Woodland Hills is predominantly a links-style course that offers enough variety to challenge the most advanced golfer. However, some holes are traditional designs, such as holes #2 through #8. These holes include dogleg fairways and well-bunkered, small greens. On the other hand, holes #9 through #11 and also #18, were carved through a forest and feature moguls and a strong prevailing wind. Overall, water hazards (ponds) come into play on seven holes. For the most part, the terrain is flat, but some mounds can cause uneven lies. The signature hole is #16, a 430-yard, par 4, featuring waste bunkers and moguls, and requiring a well-placed approach shot to an undulating green.
