John P. Wood III began his venture in 1947 opening the "Wood Shed", a driving range and snack stand, located in King of Prussia, Pa. It wasn't until 1957 that Wood's Golf Center, also known as Woody's, opened in Norristown and has since become one of the most recognized and well-known golfing facilities in Montgomery County. The course was designed by John Wood and Visor Pignoli.
The Golf Course at Wood's Golf Center is the Philadelphia area's only 18 hole Executive Par 3 course. The course is beautifully maintained, featuring bent grass greens, sand bunkers and ponds to give it a "regulation feel" that appeals to golfers of all ages and abilities. The Par 3 holes range in distance from 105 to 250 yards adding up to an impressive 3076 total yards. These distances are not too intimidating for beginners, not too excessive for seniors, and yet there is plenty of sand and water in this layout to provide the ultimate par 54 challenge for the advanced player.
The 18-hole Woods Golf Center -Par-3 Course, Inc. plays to a par-54 and maximum distance of 3,076 yards. The course rating is 54.0 and the slope rating is120 on Rye grass.
Woods Golf Center closed in 2010.
