Golf Course Design       Planning & Consulting        Management & Development  

















Woodbridge Golf Club opened in July of 1999. Selected as the “Home of the Northern Texas Section of the PGA of America”, Woodbridge is SGS’s most ambitious work to date. A relatively flat site in the northeastern suburbs of Dallas, Texas, the Woodbridge routing by Singletary sought to take advantage of the many mature hardwood trees and streams flowing thru the property. The resulting 7,016 yard, par 72 course provides an outstanding challenge to the better player from the back tees while opening up to an enjoyable outing by the less accomplished player from the forward tees.




“An outstanding test of golf as designed by PGA Member Lee Singletary. Woodbridge is destined to become one of the best courses in the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metroplex and the entire State of Texas. Outstanding length and shot values from the championship tees challenges the best players while the shorter tees provides a fun and interesting outing for even the beginner. The greens are truly challenging but all the while fair and the bunkering and subtle use of the water features reminds one of the great traditional parkland courses of the northeastern U.S. The Northern Texas PGA is proud to call Woodbridge home.” ............Darrell Crall, Executive Director of The Northern Texas Section of the PGA of America.



Quotable Quotes

Good public golf pops us all over Dallas - Ft. Worth 
By Ron Whitten, Architecture Editor

"I played Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie with its designer, Lee Singletary, a local architect struggling to find steady work. This is his best work to date, one that bucks the trend of trying to be all things to all golfers. Give hackers wide fairways? Not at Woodbridge. Most holes are tight and tree lined, with deep brush beyond. Bounce it onto every green? Not here. Seven greens have creeks fronting them, and five others have water guarding a portion. Dumb down the greens to speed up play? No, the greens were heavily contoured.

Lee's a very good golfer, and I suppose many will accuse him of designing around his own game. I simply thought he designed a course that Ben Hogan would have loved. Anyone who relishes a relentless challenge will enjoy Woodbridge, but it's not a course for those who pack a ball retriever. I hope they never change the course, and I hope Lee finds more work."

The 10 best new courses in Texas : 1999
Lineup of state's best new courses is a reflection of building boom
By Harless Wade / Special Contributor to The Dallas Morning News

The top 10 new courses listed alphabetically:

Barton Creek/Canyon, Austin  •  Castle Hills, Lewisville  •  Houstonian, Richmond 
Sky Creek Ranch, Keller  •  Shadow Hawk, Richmond  Southern Oaks, Fort Worth
Tierra Verde, Arlington  •  Twin Lakes, Canton  •  The Tradition, Spring  
•  Woodbridge, Wylie

Harless Wade writes

Not since The Dallas Morning News initiated its annual Best of Texas Golf a dozen years ago has a lineup of new courses proved so baffling that 1999 stands out as a time without a true No. 1.

During a discussion with Tim Hobby about the new courses, the Baylor coach was asked about more than one. His replies: " Woodbridge at Wylie: "It's awesome."

Hobby, one of the 27 voters, wasn't alone in the use of the word awesome. Similar words were employed any number of times by other PGA Tour pros, designers and outstanding amateurs in discussions about new layouts.

Woodbridge, the new home office to the Northern Texas PGA, is carved from an area around a winding creek only minutes northeast of downtown Garland. It is an outstanding design of Lee Singletary, a NTPGA pro. Trey Hansen, director of golf at Woodbridge, is quick to point out the great teaching facilities at the Wylie course. Woodbridge also claims one of the few holes measuring more than 600 yards in Texas. The par-5 13th doglegs along 614 yards to an impressive, huge green. It's one of the toughest and most beautiful new holes in the state.

Dear Lee :

What a fine course! You found a great course hidden out there at Woodbridge. It was a pleasure to play - but not well I’m afraid as I was too busy sizing up your work and being impressed by your talent to be bothered with my score.
Congratulations on your product!

Dear Lee :

I recently had the opportunity to be on the team that rated Woodbridge Golf Club. It was a pleasure to see such an original design of this course. You have designed many memorable holes at Woodbridge. I particularly like the two short par fours.

Woodbridge is by far one of the best golf courses in the area!

I congratulate you on your beautifully designed course and look forward to meeting new challenges of your future golf course designs.
