Montgomery County’s newest master-planned community, Woodforest offers a broad array of housing choices priced from the low $200,000s to more than $1 million. Many homesites in the 3,000-acre community border lakes, nature preserves and the Woodforest Golf Club, which features 27 holes contoured with towering pine trees and old-growth oaks common to the Northwest Houston landscape. The Steve Elkington-designed course opened in 2001 and quickly gained accolades. It was named best new course in the 2002 Houston Chronicle Golf Guide, voted a “must play” course in Golf magazine’s May 2002 issue and nominated as one of the state’s top 10 golf courses for 2008 by Golf Digest.

A project of The Johnson Development Corp., Woodforest’s master plan calls for 5,500 homes as well as retail and commercial properties, places of worship and on-site schools. Approximately 700 acres will be dedicated to parks, open space and recreation areas, as well as various sports fields. Miles of hike-and-bike trails will meander through forested reserves, connecting neighborhoods and major amenities within the community. Also planned is a resort-style aquatic center boasting an expansive swimming area with water slides and water play equipment, a toddler pool and a separate competition pool. In addition, the recreation complex will offer six lighted tennis courts, including a tournament court with spectator seating.

Woodforest students are served by schools in the Conroe and Montgomery school districts. Conroe district officials have already purchased more than 16 acres of land within the development for an elementary school slated to open in 2012. The district has an option to purchase another 15 acres for an intermediate school.

Just 5.2 miles north of The Woodlands and six miles south of Conroe, Woodforest is convenient to the wealth of shopping and entertainment options that define southern Montgomery County. Convenient access just seven miles west of Interstate 45 will be provided by Fish Creek Thoroughfare, the first new major north/south thoroughfare built in Montgomery County.
