The Woodholme golf course was designed in 1927 by Herbert Strong one of the pillars of that era known as the "Golden Age of Golf Design. Typical of Strong's designs, the course was built over natural terrain with very little earth moved. The course features small greens, deep green side bunkers, and undulating fairways where a flat lie is hard to find. Here, Strong also found significant elevation changes as well.


The course features pure bent grass green, tees and meandering fairways. There are five sets of tees to choose from that play from 5503 yards on back to the championship tees set at 7,226 yards. The course has seven water crossings, features five par 5's and plays to an uncommon par 73 and is impeccably maintained, a true hidden gem.


With a policy towards maintaining a low profile, Woodholme has hosted a number of significant area events. To name just a few, they include: 2008 Maryland State Amateur Championship, 2006 USGA Woman's Open Qualifier, 2002 Maryland Senior Open Championship, 1995 USGA Mid Amateur- second course, 1982 Mid-Atlantic Amateur as well as hosting three USGA Amateur Qualifiers, most recently in 2012.
