River Oaks Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Houston, Texas.
River Oaks Country Club first opened for play in 1925. The course was designed by Donald Ross. In 1967 Joe Finger rennovated the greens, tees, and rerouted several holes.
River Oaks is a timeless, traditional layout that is one of the most exclusive in the country. The course was set on land covered with stately old oak trees and ancient pines all nestled along the banks of Buffalo Bayou. The layout features some of the area's best short holes-distance isn't an issue, but accuracy is imperative. In addition to the oaks and pines, the skinny fairways are lined with azaleas, magnolias, and dogwoods. The greens are small, slick, and make for challenging targets.
