Ford’s Colony welcomes new golf director Woods Woolwine

Ford’s Colony has made its great golf staff even better with the addition of its new head PGA professional, Elwood “Woods” Woolwine. Woods replaces Mike Krick, who has taken a management position at Ford’s Colony. 

Woods is a familiar face and an extremely respected presence in not only the local golf community but in recreational sports as well. He and his wife Shannon have lived in Williamsburg for 25 years, and Woods has coached youth basketball and baseball in the area for more than a decade.

Woods comes to Ford’s Colony from Cypress Creek Golfers Club in Smithfield, where he was director of golf for 18 years.

Ford’s Colony will hold a “Meet the Pro” golf event on Tuesday, Feb. 5, with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. Woods and members of his staff will hit shots at various holes for all the groups playing in the event. Call the Ford’s Colony golf shop at 757-258-4100 for instructions on how to sign up to meet and play with Woods.
