Detailed description of Oakwoods Country Club

Oakwoods Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Wilkesboro, North Carolina.

Oakwoods Country Club, originally named Wilkes Country Club opened for play in January 1954. The course, designed by Arthur Ham opened as a 9-hole 3,270 yard challenge.

In the late early 60's course designer Ellis Maples had been retained to stake out a potential new nine holes of golf on property adjacent to the club. In 1962, the club hired Bill Greene as their the club pro. Almost immediately Bill got to work bringing the Maples design to life building the new 9. Given the added nine holes, Bill decided to reroute the entire course. Holes numbers 1 and 2 of the existing nine became holes 10 and 11 of what is now the back nine and the just completed nine holes became the front nine. This is the routing that still exists today and which opened for play in 1964.

The course underwent a facelift in 1971 by architect Tom Jackson and was again restored to all its glory in 2000 and 2001 by architect Kris Spence. Spence modernized the greens and tees giving the course its signature fast playing surfaces.

The course is challenging with many elevation changes throughout. Views of the surrounding Blue Ridge and Brushy Mountains may steal your attention during the round. Although the course is short by many of today's standards, it is truly a shot maker's golf course. Dog legs, bunkers, and water challenge you around every turn. Hit the big drive and leave yourself a short iron into some holes, but be careful as there is trouble awaiting the errant shot

$21 (cart included), played on Thursday, February 2018 at 10:00 PM

The cart staff was great and very helpful towards cleanliness and service but the course was not in great shape.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course, More than a field, but less than a golf course, Worse than average course for the area
