Course History

Woodcrest Country Club is a William Flynn designed course situated on 178 pristine acres in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Built in 1929, the course continues to offer players impeccable conditions including, well-manicured fairways, slick greens and deep bunkers. Previously a private country club, Woodcrest is now operating as a semi-private course, open to the public year round. One of New Jersey’s premier golf destinations, Woodcrest is a challenge for golfers of all handicaps and skill levels. The magnificent views and beautiful landscaping is a testament to the legacy golf-course-architect William S.Flynn. Flynn was responsible for the creative aspects of the course, while the technical aspects of the course were manipulated by civil engineer, Howard C. Toomey.

The Flynn/Toomey partnership manifested a course that plays much harder than the yardage indicates:

Back Tees 6528 yards Par 71 Slope 138 Rating 71.9
Member Tees 6224 yards Par 71 Slope 134 Rating 70.6
Senior Tees 5531 yards Par 71 Slope 124 Rating 67.8
Ladies Tees 5395 yards Par 74 Slope 128 Rating 72.4
 

The deceptive yardage is not the only surprise on this course, natural sloping terrain, narrow fairways and unexpected hole-sequences will also keep the golfer alert and challenged. Flynn believed each hole should have “problems developed” that challenge the player. These challenges are known to be; first: accuracy, second: carry and third: length (including carry and roll).

Flynn was known for bringing individual character to the designs he created for each hole. Woodcrest is proud to be home to all of his designs and most prominently, arguably the best closing hole in all of South Jersey.

Under new management in 2013, Woodcrest Country Club continues to improve the course on a regular basis with adding bunkers, enhancing water features and revamping light installations to give the avid golfer an experience that evolves over time and is always considered first class.
