Woodlands CC -East Details

The Woodlands Country Club was created in 1968 when its developer, Ken Behring, wanted to build a golf community resembling Palm Springs, Calif. He purchased more than 5,000 acres and built a community of homes surrounded by fairways, beautiful wooded areas, and winding streams. Behring moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1956 and started Behring Construction Company. He became a land developer, founding Tamarac Lakes, a new active-adult community in 1962. It was built on an area that was formerly wetlands, pastures, and fields. The new development was incorporated as Tamarac, Florida which was “Car-a-Mat” spelled backwards, on July 25, 1963. The golf course was carved out of 640 acres of verdant, virgin woodlands in Tamarac which is in the Fort Lauderdale area. Jackie Gleason wanted a golf tournament that would bear his name, one to outdo the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby events. Behring and Gleason entered into a contract in which the championship course would be built bearing Gleason’s name. A contract was drawn and attorneys for both sides appeared satisfied with the terms. Behring signed, but Gleason hesitated, doubting whether it would be advantageous to him. Gleason’s demands became too expensive and finally, frustrated, Behring called the deal off. World famous golf course architect Robert Von Hagge and PGA Tour player Bruce Devlin designed the 36 hole championship layouts, which were constructed by Leo Neal, who promised two of the best conditioned golf courses in the country citing that this was the "finest soil he had ever worked with in Florida." Members and guests enjoy the clubhouse complex which provides recreation for the entire family, including tournament tennis on four clay courts and a swimming pool. The clubhouse is a contemporary tri-level design overlooking a two-acre lake with outdoor patios and lounge decks. There is also a formal dining room, large enough to host dances and events. The Club also features a cocktail lounge, conference rooms, men’s and women’s card rooms with bar service. The golf-shop overlooks the large driving range as well as a practice range for chipping and sand shots. There are two 18-hole courses: the East Course and the West Course.
