Westwood Golf Club Golf Course is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Houston, Texas.
Westwood Golf Club, was founded in 1928 as Westwood Country Club. The golf course first opened for play in 1930 as a 9-hole layout. The course was designed by John Bredmus. In 1957 the Club commissioned Ralph Plummer, former assistant to Bredemus, to redesign the original nine holes and add a new nine holes. The Club extended its golf course across the original flow path of Braes Bayou. Ralph was able to maintain the "feel" of the original nine holes incorporating the natural features of shifting terrain and fairways lined by hardwood trees. At this same time, the Club introduced to its members a classically designed Clubhouse.
In 1970, Joe Finger added five new holes and redesigned three others.
In 2002 the members chose to reestablish Westwood as a premier private club with an emphasis on golf. Keith Foster was hired to redesign the golf course, utilizing the natural beauty of the land and trees to form a challenging golf course. Keith's design incorporated the natural ravine, and existing trees while enhancing the gentle roll of the land. The holes were reoriented inward to strengthen the perimeter creating a private enclave setting. Along with the reconstruction of the golf course, the clubhouse and maintenance facilities were demolished and relocated to conform and augment the new design. Westwood Golf Club reopened to member and guest play in May 2004.
This wooded course is located near Downtown Houston. It is a garden-style course, beautifully well-maintained, with flowers bordering almost every hole.
