Woodcrest Country Club is an 18-hole golf course located in the Woodcrest section of Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Previously private, the course resumed operations in 2013 as a public course.
The course opened in 1929 and was originally a 9-hole course in 1930. An additional 9 holes were added in 1931. The course was designed by William S. Flynn & Howard C. Toomey
Originally a public course when it first opened, Woodcrest turned private in 1948 and became a haven for Jewish golfers in the area who were snubbed by other clubs.
The course has narrow fairways lined with pine trees, and the undulating greens are small and fast.

This course has been purchased and is again open. Conditions were excellent considering 18 straight days of rain prior to our round. Greens are true and in excellent shape. Staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. It is an excellent course that is well above the other public courses in the area.

Extremely challenging, beautiful, and a completely different experience from other public courses in the area. #4 greenside bunker could use help, other than that it is immaculate.
