Woodway Golf Home
Of all the enduring appeals of Woodway Country Club, none surpasses the beauty of our 18-hole championship golf course. Situated on 184 acres of rolling terrain with the Noroton River winding through it, the course is a rich natural habitat, justly deserving being the first golf course recognized as a bird sanctuary by the National Audubon Society.
The course was designed by Willie Park, Jr., a two-time British Open Champion and world renowned golf course architect. Woodway is challenging to golfers of all skill levels mainly because it requires golfers to hit “all of the shots”. The yardage from the back tees measures 6,901 yards, but the course’s true challenge – regardless of which tees you play – is its unique and deceptive greens. Justifiably, the club is regularly ranked as one of the best in state by Golf Digest.
Over the years, Woodway has hosted many golf tournaments and notable exhibitions. Golfing legends such as Bobby Jones, Harry Varden, and Arnold Palmer have graced its fairways. Four Connecticut Open Championships (1964, 1983, 1995, & 2016) have been contested at Woodway.
But more than just a course to play, the club is a place to be. From its excellent practice facilities to its vibrant caddie program to its “19th hole”, Woodway provides a full golf experience. Head Golf Professional Michael Crawford (2008 Met Section Merchandiser of the Year) and his experienced staff manage a wide variety of offerings and events, including group clinics and individual instruction, a bustling junior program, and an assortment of member tournaments. The golf shop carries all of the latest in golf equipment and golf fashions.
