Goodwood which was established in 1905, was named after the Goodwood racecourse in England. The founders had high hopes of building a racing centre but even though a racecourse was built, only one race meeting was ever held there.
The first railway station was built soon after Goodwood was established. Goodwood became a municipality in 1938 and the townships of Elsie’s River and Monte Vista were included in the Goodwood municipality between 1944 and 1946. In 1969 Edgemead was added. Due to the areas surrounding where working-class people lived, Goodwood was ideally placed for industrial development.
