About

Woodfords Club

Our History

Woodfords Club was organized on September 19, 1913 as a social club. The clubhouse was formally opened on January 13, 1914. The club's crest is an adaptation of the crest of the prominent and respected Woodford family, who, in the early nineteenth century, had settled in what is now the Woodfords district of Portland. Membership originally comprised conservative businessmen from Portland. The clubhouse was expanded in 1923 to accommodate an increasing membership. Although the membership ceiling had been increased from 300 to 325 and later to 500, a waiting list for membership, sometimes several years long, was not uncommon.

Friday Nights

Our members enjoy excellent camaraderie and we would love to have you join us. Just come to our Friday evening family-style dinners, enjoy a half-hour of entertainment or listen to a guest speaker, and join us for bowling, pool, billiards, cribbage, and bridge afterwards. Woodfords Club is a great place to relax and socialize on a Friday night.
