About WWGC

Whispering Woods is an award-winning course in Erie, PA.

History of our Golf Club

Whispering Woods Golf Club construction started in 2003. The golf course was designed by the late John Exley in which he worked with Golf Course Superintendent Rob Goring to shape and design the course layout. Over the next four years the golf course was growing in nicely and shaping up for its grand opening. Whispering Woods opened for play on May 25th, 2007.

In the fall of 2008 construction began on the building of our practice facility. It was completed in early September of 2009. The practice facility is now one of the premier places to work on your game in Erie, PA.
