Westwood Golf Club, originally founded in 1928 as Westwood Country Club, has the distinction of being the second oldest Private Golf Club in Houston on its original site. The Club was founded by thirty prominent families with the desire to promote the spirit of brotherhood among its members by supporting and maintaining a private club for the promotion of outdoor life.
Westwood Country Club The original design, by noted Texas golf professional and architect John Bredemus, was nine holes. This "sporty nine" had a par of 36 and two sets of tees. The backset measured to a length of 3310 yards and the front set played to a length of 2979. This design had the reputation of challenging all skill levels with demanding drives through the natural hardwoods and tight second shots to well bunkered greens. Two of the featured holes included the fifth hole, a par 5, and the par 3 eighth hole. The fifth hole measured to a length of 600 yards with a very narrow fairway that has out of bounds to the right and heavy rough to the right. The scenic number eight, a par 3 that measures to 150 yards, positioned so that players hit into the prevailing wind. This green was well bunkered with water to the right and trees to the left. After the completion of Westwood, John went on to design other great golf courses such as Colonial CC.
In 2018 the club embarked on a renovation project on the golf course, renovating the greens, tees and bunkers. The greens were restored to their original design characteristics and resurfaced with Tifeagle. The Bunkers were completely rebuilt with new liner and a bright, white sand. The tees were leveled and resurfaced with Celebration Bermuda. The club reopened in September 2018 and looks forward to a bright future.
