Although the Woodlands Country Club has its fair share of downed trees, limbs and branches, the club came through pretty well according to Director of Operations, Jim Greene.  

The clubhouse has power and propane gas, so their lounge and kitchen are open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and Woodlands residents are welcome to enjoy a delicious meal or refreshing beverage he said. 

As for golf, Greene said that their team is working hard to clear debris from the front 9 holes of the West course. Beginning Wednesday,  they will open the West Course – front 9 only.   The Pro Shop will open at 7 a.m. and the first available tee time will be 7:30 a.m.  Players will need to play the course twice to get 18 holes in.   If they are successful at clearing the rest of the West course, and the weather cooperates, they hope to offer all 18 holes of the West by the weekend.   They will then focus on getting the East course open as soon as possible as well. 

During this time, Greene asks all members and guests to have patience as they attempt to get things back to normal.  Their goal is to provide as enjoyable golfing experience as they can during this time of transition.   As such, they will need to prioritize how and where they use their manpower.

They anticipate that it will take some time to remove all of the fallen debris on and around the club and they ask players to steer clear of any fallen limbs or debris piles.  

At this time, they do not know whether or not this week’s Happy Hour/Karaoke will take place on Friday so please contact the club for details.  954-731-2500.
