Description

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC MONDAY-FRIDAY, ONLY through September!!!!!
OCC has one of the finest facilities in Northwest North Carolina because of our wide range of golf and social activities for the entire family. The golf course itself is highly regarded for the quality of its greens, course conditions, and many strategic challenges. Established in 1954, our club has one of the longest standing traditions of country club golf in the foothills.

Oakwoods Country Club is nestled in the foothills of North Carolina among the ghosts of moonshiners and NASCAR. The club opened in 1954 with the original 9 holes designed by Arthur Hamm, a student and former apprentice of the great Donald Ross. Local design legend, Ellis Maples finished the 18 hole layout with an additional 9 that opened 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. Once you have found the fairway, the real challenge begins. Well guarded greens accept the well struck shots, but true to the old fashioned design of the course, an errant approach will leave a difficult up and down to salvage par. Greens that roll 9.5 to 10 on the Stimp Meter will challenge even the best putters.
