    Woodlawn Golf Course is located in Rheinland Phalz not Saarland. A minor detail.

  • Looking for Mike Carlton - the WIC

    Herb Smaltz wrote on: Jul 1, 2006

    I was at Ramstein from 92-96. One of my perennial competitors was Mike Carlton, who won the Woodlawn Invitational (now Open I believe) during that time. When he retired from the Air Force, we lost contact with him. Does anyone have contact information on Mike? You'll remember him as a moody, generally pain in the arse kinda guy on the one hand but would give you the shirt off his back on the other hand.

        Is that the same Herb Smaltz that lost his putter in the pond on the 8th?
        Deadly from 50ft but didn't like the little ones!
        Did you manage to get in touch with Mike? My main recollection of Mike is always handing money to him on the 18th everytime we played. Dave Crawford and Jim Jenney are two other names I remember.
        I was part of the Brit community, Roger Shrimpton, Graham Bassey etc.

    I was just checking out the advance copies of the Kaiserslautern community newspaper when I noticed that the club pro was Ron Hines. Would that be the Ron Hines who played basketball with the Germans while he was stationed there in the military? I met that Ron Hines at DLI in California. Please advise!

  • Overall ... Decent

    Jimbo Johnson wrote on: Sep 21, 2005

    Woodlawn is a short course, I read the other posted notes and it did not do the course justice; or in other maybe too much justice, however you could leave your driver at home (that is if you can't hit with it). Well cut designs makes Woodlawn fun to play, challenging, yet if you are not a beginner, it can be very rewarding. Some of those fairways can get really tight, and yes the "Rough" can be just that. The green are very well kept, however the Tee boxes can be lacking sometimes (sometimes even lacking grass in large portions). The Clubhouse staff are helpfull and always pleasant. The selection also will rival your favorite home course. The restaurant serves well made and tasteful food, But that is only in the evening (through my past experiences). My biggest complaint is they have not come up with a way to work out playing only the "Back Nine". The course is set up well and they could overcome this obstacle but I fear they never will try. The back nine is as good as the front and sometime you don't have time in this Military life to just play all Eighteen. All things said this should give you a good review to go off of, and me personally I'll play another round there next week. Don't miss Woodlawn GC it's definately worth the time and very fair fees that they charge.


  • Poor Military Support

    Greg wrote on: Jul 3, 2005

    I have been to many Military bases in my military career , Most of them have some sort of prorated membership for the service member who finds himself with less than a year in one location(TDY). Since Ramstein is the temporary home to a great number of TDY service members it is unfortinate to find this organization offers no support to those who are here in support of the current mission.... They do Prorate the year if you join late or halfway thru.. Seems like it would be an easy to fix and I know it would increase the business i give them..


      • RE: Poor Military Support

        Greg wrote on: Jul 8, 2005

        After recently talking to one of the employee's at the course about prorated fees, I recieved a call that they would prorate the fee's.... The way they do it is you pay for the prorated fee for the year and then when you are ready to leave, they will refund the difference..
        I am not sure why they don't just prorate it for the time you are going to be there, but they will prorate it... Thank you for your Support.

    Mr. Lucero worked as a "Starter" when I was there in 99-01. Don't have a clue if he is still around. If anyone could help me locate a Mr. Mathis (Chris) I would greatly appreciate it he worked in equipment rental. Email me at ladams9@satx.rr.com. I worked in equipment rental if anyone remembers.


  • Great Course

    Matt Wiederholt wrote on: Mar 1, 2005

    I am on the Ramstein High School Varsity golf team. Woodlawn is our home course and it scares the heck out of the other teams. This course is tighter than any other course I've ever played at. Harder than the course we played European Championships at. Tons of fun though. The course seems like it is not too hard because it is short but when you step up to the tee box, you'll notice how small the fairways are and how long the rough can get. Overall, Woodlawn is the best course I've ever played and with the new management, you'll have a great time not only on the course but in the clubhouse too.


  • One of the best "Public" courses.

    Jerry Bradfute wrote on: Jan 12, 2005

    I was stationed at Ramstein from 1994-1998. I was introduced to golf at Woodlawn... I really enjoyed the course and think that it is a very good course to learn on (really tight). It forced me to get a straighter drive really quick... I also enjoyed the Staff. They were very helpful, and friendly. I still have a couple of photographs I took, hanging in my office. One is the approach to the 8th green, and the other is of the approach to the 18th green. I loved Woodlawn and would love to play it again.

  • Good Enough

    Dave Mo wrote on: Aug 12, 2004

    The course is ok, and you can actually leave your driver at home! A million dollar club house with a 10 cent restaurant...absolutely pathetic service. They could be the best on base with very little effort. Can someone say "piss poor management"?
    Anyway, the course is worth playing!

        I was the restaurant supply clerk at Woodlawn from 1991-1995,and I know it was a top-notch restaurant. I took the supply operation from a spiral notebook to a database that I constructed. I ensured the quality of food was never compromised and I remember the Restaurant manager was good about making the dining experience a favorable one.
        The manager for the course was Eric Sudy then, and old Lorenzo was the golf repair tech. I often what happened to everyone, as I've lost touch. If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

            The establishment managed to squander the restaurant clout it had from the 80's. There's been lots of debate on it, with USAFE Services blaming it on the customer's changing demands. But the truth remains, Chili's stayed full until Macaroni Grill came along, and now Macaroni Grill has hour-long wait times.
            If someone truly wanted to have the Woodlawn restaurant flourish, it could be done; what's lacked has been either the will or, dare I say, competency.

        Mr. Mo,
        While surfing the web I have found your message. I was wondering what had occurred to make you feel this way. I am very interested to correct any situation that you had encountered to give you a bad experience in our restaurant. Please stop by and see me, so we can improve our facility.

            I was stationed for 3 years at Ramstein. Never once did I find anything at fault with the course, the steakhouse, or the staff. It was a wonderful experience and miss everything about the "WoodLawn" experience.

    This is small, yet challenging course. If your stationed overseas and get the privilege of playing this course you'll understand why it's such a great course. If your good with your long irons you'll have a definite advantage over most players. "CLIK CLACK BOOM" did I hit that tree? Have fun and No drinking on the course. YEA RIGHT! Thanks to everyone who made my Germany experience a memorable one.
