Our 18 hole course has something for everyone.

  • Take in the views of the countryside as you wind through the woods and up and down hills-unlike any other course in the area.
  • Follow us on social media & visit the pub for our regular golfer lunch & dinner specials.




The Whistling Farmer Pub is named in memory of Freeman Barber, “the whistling farmer”. Freeman operated a dairy farm in our location until the early 1970s at which time he built Barberlea Golf Course. We’ve come a long way from pitching hay and milking cows in our dining room! Later Freeman worked alongside his son Russell Barber to build Woodlynn Hills Golf Course. He’d regularly be seen on his red Farmall tractor or around the clubhouse whistling a happy tune.
