Club History

Pine Forest Country Club, established in 1945, was originally located along North Shepherd Boulevard on 144 acres of tall pine trees. Legendary architect John Bredemus built the course during World War II, designing a tight woodsy course that hosted the University of Houston's All-American Intercollegiate team for 15 years and was host to the 1949 Houston Open, won by Johnny Palmer by just one stroke.

Twenty-eight years after Bredemus completed his development, the club moved west of the city since three-fourths of its membership lived in the Memorial area. Paul Wahlberg located 186 acres at 18000 Clay Road, enough land for an 18-hole golf course. The vision, however, was for 27 holes and was realized with the acquisition of an additional 44 acres. Architect Jay Riviere designed the original 18-hole course, which consisted of the Green Nine and Gold Nine. On May 1, 1975, the facilities at Clay Road were opened only two weeks after the activities at the original location were closed for good. Some 300 trees were transplanted from the North Shepherd course, and most survived. In 1985, architect Carlton Gipson was hired to add nine additional holes, now called the White Nine.

Pine Forest has continued its growth by adapting to the development of Houston and its suburbs and enhancing the membership's amenities. Over the years, a resort pool was added, and most recently designated pickleball courts with a neighboring recreational green space.


Located in West Houston, Pine Forest is easily assessable from any part of town. Via Interstate-10, take Highway 6 North for 3.5 miles. Take a left turn on Clay Road, drive for 1.8 miles. Make a left on Windsong Trail to arrive at Pine Forest.
