Even before there was a Woodstock Club, our picturesque property was a golfer's haven. In 1896, four enterprising gentlemen laid out two holes of golf on land that is now included in the Club and they followed that very short course the next year with one of the first nine-hole courses west of the Appalachians.
Woodstock Club also has a long history as a nationally known tennis venue. In the 1920's our seven clay courts became home to the Western Open. In 1969 our courts were appointed host to the U.S. Clay Court Championships. And in 1972, Woodstock introduced paddle (platform tennis) to Indianapolis.
Not to be outdone in aquatics, in 1927, the first pool at Woodstock Club was set amid formal terraces, making it the perfect classically styled setting for a nighttime exhibition by eight Olympic swimmers in 1929. The nine founders of Woodstock Club shared a vision and sensibility that defined the organization as uniquely refined yet welcoming.
