Founded as the Beaver Dam Golf and Country Club in 1923, it was renamed the Prince Georges Golf and Country Club in 1941. In 1979 its golf course, designed by Donald Ross, was purchased by the Maryland National Capitol Park and Planning Commission in 1979, precipitating the move to its present location.
In 1994-1995, fourteen female members sued Woodmore Country Club in a discrimination case, winning full membership rights. They were represented by one of the members, Linda Hitt Thatcher of Mitchellville.
Championship events hosted by Woodmore include the 2002 US Senior Open Qualifer.
Famous members include convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
