Lake Sherwood

The history of this majestic area is both storied and colorful. Lake Sherwood got its name from the fact that it was used as the location for Sherwood Forest in the 1922 film “Robin Hood,” which starred Douglas Fairbanks. When “The Adventures of Robin Hood” was filmed in 1938 starring Errol Flynn, this area also served as a major scene location. Many other Hollywood motion pictures have used Lake Sherwood as a location for motorboat chases, neighboring forests for Tarzan and Jungle Jim films, as well as a full-scale Tibetan village constructed for the film “Lost Horizon.” Today, the area serves as the location for many upscale homes, and the world-famous Sherwood Country Club. This private golf, tennis and country club is home to an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature championship golf course, driving range and clubhouse.
