Woodmore is a census-designated place (CDP) in Prince George's County, Maryland. This unincorporated area is one of the most prosperous predominately African American communities in the U.S. The community is bounded by Entrpreside Rd. to the west, Church Rd. to the east, Central Ave. to the south and Route 50 to the north. The area of Woodmore dates back to 1698, when Thomas Spriggs acquired 500 acres in the Crown Colony of Maryland. This piece of land was known as the forest of Prince George's County.
A century later, Dr. Isaac Ducket, the husband of Spriggs' granddaughter, increased the size of the estate to more than 1,000 acres. Around 1798, he built the first house on the estate. It was a two-story brick house called Pleasant Prospect. The estate was passed down to Ducket's son-in-law, John Contee. John Contee's son would later sell it to the Bowies, who then sold it to the Walkers – a Washington, D.C. lumber magnate. In 1982, the Walker family sold the Pleasant Prospect house. However, they still kept a piece of the land on the south side of Woodmore Rd. that was later sold and turned into Woodmore Meadows.
The Woodmore gated community consists of about 400 houses, including townhouses and single-family homes. Keisha Stewart of the Washington Post describes it as one of the premier subdivisions in Prince George's County. Development for it was planned in 1981 and took 15 years to establish. Residential properties in the community range from $250,000 to $1.5 million.
The Country Club at Woodmore is the center of the Woodmore community. 33% of the residents living in the area are members of the country club. Located on the corner of Enterprise Rd. and Woodmore Rd., it is open every day from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The country club was founded in 1923 on Landover Rd. Named the Beaver Dam Golf and Country course, the club was designed by notable golf architect Donald Ross. It was open on August 16, 1923, for play. The club was bought and renamed Prine George's Country Club in 1941. It was the host of championship events such as the 1947 and 1948 National Capital Open and the U.S. Women's Open Championship in 1949.
In 1979, it was bought by the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission and moved to its present location. The new par 72, 7,059-yard course was designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay and opened in 1981. In 2007, the club changed its name to "The Country Club at Woodmore." In 2013, Golf Digest ranked it number 10 out of all the Middle Atlantic golf courses. The country club feature amenities like a beautiful clubhouse, gourmet dining, a multi=tiered swimming complex and three Har-Tru tennis courts.
