Golf Club Turns 100
Woodstock Country Club celebrates 100 years of family, community involvement.
Woodstock Country Club is celebrating a big milestone this summer: its 100th anniversary. The par-35 course – set upon 60 rolling acres north of Country Club Road – was officially started May 19, 1916.
In her years of service, Manager Teresa Jaramillo Ryan has watched WCC modernize, however, this 100 percent member-owned club remains mindful of its history.
WCC enjoys a “home-grown” membership that’s been passed down from generation to generation, a testament to the family atmosphere that can only be defined as “genuine Woodstock,” Jaramillo Ryan said.
She said she finds the relationship between members and the club especially rewarding. “Our yearly success demonstrates how much the membership truly cares about their golf course,” she said. “There is a sense of purpose maintaining an establishment with such a profound sense of community.”
WCC’s sense of community extends not only to its members, but to the entire Woodstock area. The 4,652-square-foot clubhouse is a venue for various family affairs from graduation and engagement parties to baby showers. Originally a farmhouse built in 1917, the clubhouse has seen many upgrades, most recently in the past eight years.
Golfing at WCC blends leisure with brevity. As a 9-hole course, members can enjoy a quick round or extend their day with several rounds and top it all off with a meal at the clubhouse, which serves everything from burgers to duck confit.
Anniversary events so far have included a seafood buffet, and a food and wine tasting.
A members-only anniversary party on July 30, dubbed the Hickory Invitational, will feature period-style golf with wooden clubs and a vintage supper club-style dinner with live music.
