History of Woodhaven Country Club
Welcome to Woodhaven Country Club, where traditional Southern charm meets modern, urban families. At Woodhaven, we are proud to honor our long-standing roots in the Ft. Worth community. Woodhaven Country Club sits on the former site of W.J. Boaz’ 740 acre ranch. Boaz purchased the land in East Fort Worth in 1866 and the ranch remained in his family for over a century. Today, Woodhaven carries on the tradition of the Boaz family by providing a premier country club nestled in this fabulous former estate. Woodhaven is the product of four former Texas visionaries–Governor John Connally, Perry Bass, Sid Bass and Mike Myers. Over the years, Woodhaven has been proud to host many top ranked golf tournaments including the Ladies Professional Golf Association, LPGA, in 1973, 1974 and 1975 with such illustrious players such as Patty Berg, Marlene Hagge and Sandra Palmer. With a tradition deeply rooted in excellence, Woodhaven Country Club remains an example of distinction in Ft. Worth. The Club boasts an 18-hole, par 71 championship golf course designed by Leon Howard and pro-golfer Terry Dill, 8 tennis courts, a junior Olympic swimming pool, and clubhouse with dining and banquet rooms. The course offers its own unique challenges to the game utilizing the natural beauty and elevation of the area.
