Only a few miles east of Houston off of Highway B lies Oakwood Golf Club.
Oakwood’s 9-hole layout plays to 6,135 yards as an 18-hole course, with front-nine white tees playing at 2,913 yards and back-nine blue tees playing about 300 yards longer. Seniors – or anyone else – can play the red tees up front at an easier distance of 4,448 yards.
Construction of Oakwood G.C. began in the early 1980s when Houston Country Club was eliminated to make way for expansion of Houston Memorial Airport. Wishing to maintain a local golfing option, HCC members secured a piece of property for a new venue, literally beginning its formation with weed eaters.
The new course – Oakwood Golf Club – was formed entirely of existing topography, as not a single mound or hill was moved or altered and the lay of the land became the personality of the holes.
Oakwood G.C. offers league play and hosts several tournaments each year staged by a variety of businesses and organizations. Lessons are available for every level or age of golfer, male or female.
Detailed information about Oakwood G.C. can be found on the course’s Facebook page. The phone number is 417-967-3968.
