Im a member at woodlands and have been for over 20 years.
The club in the last year has increased its membership over that last year but up to that only half of the members were actually playing at the weekends so there isnt much of an issue getting on the time sheet apart from the usual sunday morning rush.
At the agm i december the comptition income to the mens club was the same as the previous year so even with the membership increase the comptitions arent full.
The club introduced online timesteets last year which really makes getting out easier and the club runs its comptition time sheets on Friday evenings, saturdays and sundays which is great even if you have plans for the weekends. .
Mid week golf is easy with a midweek open comptition on wednesdays that members can play for a fiver if they want to. I normally pop down in the evenings for a few holes and play till its dark in the summerwith no issues.
The course can get wet but no more than any other course, We have had the wettest 3 summers in a row, 10 years ago we installed sprinklers, now we dont use them. The course does get closed from time to time but this is done to prevent unnecessary damage being done to the course. I know that in the last few months drainage works has been carried to deal with the problem areas and a new machine for vibrating/sanding the greens is also on the way.
Woodlands is a members course, run by the members for the members not like other privately owned clubs where greenfees come first, I may sound a bit biast but I know a few people who left last year to go to "better" clubs but soon came back.
Hope this info helps you in some way,
