Woodlake Golf & Country Club
Donald Ross was an apprentice under Old Tom Morris, Frank Maples was an apprentice under Donald Ross, Ellis Maples, who designed and built Woodlake was an apprentice under both. I wouldn’t exactly say that there is a direct connection between Old Tom Morris and Woodlake, but the quality of great golf course architecture that is passed down from generation to generation is certainly prevalent today at Woodlake Country Club. In 1971 Ellis Maples created a course described by many as one of the most challenging and beautiful golf courses in the Southeast. In 1995, a second course was added to the Woodlake inventory when Arnold Palmer put his design team to work. Winding gracefully around the largest, private, man-made lake in North Carolina, Woodlake’s two championship courses will provide you with a golf experience for a “king”.
