Established in 1946, Northwood Club is a premier country club located in the heart of North Dallas. Tucked quietly, in amongst green fairways and live oaks, the club provides all the facilities and events that professionals or families need to entertain, socialize and recreate.
Home to one of the finest golf courses in North Texas, Northwood Club hosted the 1952 U.S. Open, won by Julius Boros. In addition, for more than 60 years, Northwood Club's staff and facilities have provided a family-friendly atmosphere for members. Many events have become exclusive traditions that are engrained in the Club's culture. From holiday festivities, themed events, golf and tennis tournaments and family pool activities - Northwood has something for everyone.
In addition to the 18 hole golf course, current athletic facilities include 16 tennis courts with four indoor courts, a large resort-style swimming pool complex with wading pool, changing facilities, lockers, a poolside restaurant and adult bar.
Northwood Club was organized in 1946 by a group of young Dallas businessmen and professionals who thought the city had shown sufficient growth since the formation of the last country club, 25 years prior, to justify another high end private club in the growing city. Its purpose would be to serve the social interests and recreation requirements of the many younger families of Dallas without such facilities.
The organizing group unanimously agreed on a 170 acre former estate with many large trees and Rolling Meadows as its first choice. By September of 1946, the 100 charter members executed a purchase contract for the property and definite development plans began to take shape. Two of the nation’s leading golf course architects were brought to Dallas to review the land, and each of them pronounced it as one of the most promising and beautiful sites for a golf course they had ever seen in this section of the country. Bill Diddel was selected to plan and lay out the golf course and George Harrell, of the firm of Williams and Harrell, of New York and Dallas, was chose to study conversion of the existing structure into a complete clubhouse.
In 1952, Northwood Club became the youngest club in the history of the USGA to host a United States Open.
