Woodlake Resort & Golf Club
Woodlake Resort & Country Club is a gated, lakefront golf community located 20 minutes north of the historic village of Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina. The 1,200 acre private lake is the centerpiece of a beautiful resort community where residents and guests experience lakefront living, boating, fine dining, and World Class Golf on 36 exceptional holes.
Two of the true legends of golf course architecture, Arnold Palmer and Ellis Maples, teamed up to design Woodlake’s two championship golf courses. The original course, The Maples Course, was built by Ed Seay and Ellis Maples in 1971 and is described by many golfers as one of the most challenging and beautiful in the Southeast with lush Bentgrass greens and hybrid bermuda fairways winding gracefully around the lake. The Palmer Course was completed in 1995 and is a combination of Dan Maples and Arnold Palmer-Ed Seay, inspired by Palmer’s belief in fair and challenging golf for all levels of play. As testimony to the excellent condition and championship layout, Woodlake has hosted the Carolinas’ PGA Match Play Championship, the North Carolina State High School Championships, and numerous local professional and amateur golf championships.
Both the Woodlake-Maples and Woodlake-Palmer courses play around the largest privately owned, man-made lake in North Carolina and a full-service clubhouse, The Historic Oates House, built in 1792. The Oates House is a magnificent reminder of colonial North Carolina and conjures up images of “Gone with the Wind” while serving as the main clubhouse and social center of the community. The LakeView Dining Room and outside terraces offer casual and fine dining with panoramic views of the lake.
