It shouldn’t be surprising, but it seems that people don’t know about Woodlake when they come to Pinehurst for golf and decide to stay. The area has been renowned as a golf mecca attracting world class golf to the sand and the pines for over a hundred years. But nowhere else do you find a third element, water in the form of a 1200 acre lake, enhancing the golf experience. Both courses at Woodlake Country Club, Maples and Palmer designs, weave the links and water together around the shoreline to create an unmatched setting. Twenty minutes closer to Raleigh and Fayetteville, it is easy to slip by the quiet lake on the way to the resort villages of Southern Pines and Pinehurst.
In particularly lovely touch, the Clubhouse at Woodlake is the historic Oates House built in 1700 that once occupied a prominent downtown setting in nearby Fayetteville. The historic restoration welcomes members as the hub of the gated community offering tennis, swimming and dining.
Enjoy the sunset from the dock of 720 Azalea Drive, a waterfront home at Woodlake that is modeled after the Clubhouse at Augusta National. Now you can’t say that no one told you about a best kept secret.
