Oakwood Country Club is a Private, 9 hole golf course located in North Canton, Ohio.
In 1924 three holes of golf were created. The nine-hole course we see today opened on July 4, 1929.
#1 is a 165 yard par-3. this hole begins with an elevated tee box. You hit through a relatively narrow tree-lined fairway to the green. The tee box is 16 feet higher than the two-tiered green. The green is protected by a front side bunker. The two tiers are separated by a 12 front downward slope from right to left. The green also slopes from back to front. Every putt on this green is a speed putt.
#2 is a 121 yard par-3: This hole has an elevated green, 10 feet higher than the tee. You must hit the ball over a deep valley. There is scrub grass lining the left side of the fairway. The right side has pines that like to catch drives. If you overshoot the green on the right there are more dunes scrub. This green is ample in size and slopes gently downward from left to right.
#3 is a 297 yard par-4 with an alternate tee at 307 yards: This hole is downhill all the way. The overall drop is 32 feet from tee to green. The left side is dunes scrub for about half of the distance. The right side is lined with trees. The green has a trap on the right side. The green is sloped downward from back to front.
#4 is a 120 yard par-3 with an alternate tee at 108 yards: This is the signature hole with an island green. The elevated tee is 36 feet above green level. There is a lateral hazard on the left side. The green is small and slopes gently downward from back to front.
#5 is a 345 yard par-4 with an alternate tee at 300 yards: This hole is a slight dogleg left but has a wide and basically level fairway. There is a creek along the left side where the hole turns left. The green is protected by a hidden bunker on the front right. The green is fairly large.
#6 is a 140 yard par-3. You hit straight up a 38-foot hill with a wide fairway and Firestone Road to the left and tall pines on the right. The green slopes downward from the back to the front by about six feet. The key to this hole is just getting up the hill.
#7 is a 166 yard par-3. This hole that runs parallel to Firestone Road. The tee is about 25 feet above the green. The fairway is generous in width, however, there is the road on the left and if you miss right there are trees and dune scrub. The large trap on the right side of the green can be troublesome. The green slopes down from front to back. Reminder: hitting left will cost you strokes.
#8 is a 154 yard par-3. This hole plays longer than it looks. It plays slightly downhill from tee to green. The left side of the fairway is parallel to the club entrance drive. The green slopes downward from front to back and left to right. Watch out for the hidden bunker that lurks behind the green.
#9 is a 294 yard par-4 with an alternate tee at 323 yards: This hole gave Oakwood its name. Tall oak trees line both sides of this fairway. From the elevated tee and narrow tree tree-lined fairway to the challenging green, this hole and several of the others truly separate this course from the normal executive courses. The tee is 58 feet higher than the green. There are traps on both sides of the green. The green has two tiers with an eight-foot difference between elevations. Chipping and putting skills are required for good scoring.
Blue tees: par-30, 1,839 yards
