Played in an outing here last fall. Great track, would be an easy walk. If I had the money I'd join. Great locker room, I do not have enough superlative or adjectives in my vocabulary. Go if you can or you will be missing out...

Would travel: 0-10 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again

Oak Hills is a private, members only club. I had the privilege of playing as a guest of a member. This is an incredible A.W. Tillinghast design. Old school in the best of ways.

The fairways were in perfect condition, the bunkers recently remodeled (with incredible sand), and the greens fast and true. The rough was TOUGH. The course is filled with beautiful oaks which come into play on many holes. Very little water in play. Though the club is "in town", most holes are without houses or ourside distractions. Truly a gorgeous layout. This course is a real test from the men-s tees. No way I could play from the tips (my index is 14.6).

If you ever have an opportunity to play, do not pass it up! I highly recommend Oak Hills.
