Oak Forest is the perfect combination of traditional and links-style designs. Set in a valley with mostly flat terrain, the front nine features water on every hole, subtle mounding, narrow fairways, and a welcome lack of trees. The trees come into play on the back nine and the greens are much smaller. A fun course in great condition, Oak Forest is known for its fast greens.

Holes of note include No. 8, considered the signature hole with a creek on the left and a grass bunker fronting the green. This is a challenging 182-yard par 3. No. 18 is a nice ender–playing 576 yards with huge fairway trees that affect the second shot, and a creek that cuts into the fairway in front of the green.

Getting there : From I-20 east, take Loop 281 north to Bill Owens Pkwy. Turn right on Oak Forest Country Club Dr. and the course is just down the road.

    Great staff and great course. While it is older, the staff works hard to accompany each and every person there. They always have available tee times and are affordable.

    I was a member here 12 years ago. Great club and course. I played it again in July. It is shameful how poorly maintained now. I will not play it again.
