Woodcreek Farms started in the 1940’s as a hunting club, founded by Edwin Cooper, Sr., for his friends and relatives. Built around Woodcreek Lake, several cottages and cabins were used as weekend and vacation homes.
Edwin Cooper’s son, Edwin Cooper, Jr., in the early 1990’s, partnered with Heath Manning, one of the founders of Wildewood, to develop Woodcreek Farms into a golf course community. They enlisted the help of world-renowned course designer Tom Fazio, giving him full range to use his skills to create a course that utilized the natural environment and topography. This resulted in the Woodcreek Farms golf course, which is now revered as one of the best in the region.
The course is challenging with its natural beauty coming from the many wildflowers, streams, and lakes. It maintains the hardwoods, wetlands, hills and valleys that were on the land before development. There is a beautiful Pecan Grove between holes 16 and 17 to put an exclamation point on the serenity and tranquility that the course offers.
Upon completion of the course, the building of homes began, with the first home built in 1997. The neighborhood is still under development but currently sits are well over 500 homes.
