Senica's Oak Ridge Golf Club sprawls across gently rolling terrain that was used to guide the design. The resulting layout blends in almost seamlessly with the natural landscape. The golf course is routed through forests of mature oak trees and around five sparkling lakes. The back nine plays along a meandering creek. Water hazards come into play on a total of 13 holes and there are nearly 50 bunkers strategically placed throughout. The golf course demands a fair amount of accuracy but it's not overly punishing if you're errant. The final hole plays from an elevated tee, requiring a carry over the creek in order to reach the green. In addition to the golf course, Oak Ridge also offers a practice facility with a driving range, two practice greens, and a practice bunker.

Challenge!

Very impressed with the greens on this course! Soft, smooth, and roll nicely! Plenty of bunkers surround the greens! Many challenges on the greens themselves causing the average golfer to really pay attention to the line! A great course that will challenge all who play it. This course is not for a beginner!

Very nice course !

even though the area hasn't had much rain the course was not dried out due to watering ! Very challenging layout the front nine very different from the back nine so expect a little higher score on the back !

beautiful senic course

I love this course because every hole is completely different and the greens are true and fast, but fair. The clubhouse is nice and the food is above average. I drive over an hour to get there but it's well worth it. Enjoy!!!!!!

Oak Ridge

I am from the area and play Oak Ridge quite often. One of my favorite courses. Great par 3s, beautiful water hazards, friendly staff. I usually end up running into some fun wildlife also. Highly recommend. But do not come on a holiday. It's near a state park and a few resorts and the pace of play can get very slow.

Great course

The best course in the Illinois Valley; challenging yet fair golf course. Back nine has some beautiful holes, and the course was in pristine condition. Food in the restaurant is top notch; the only complaint is there was no marshal to pick up the pace of play. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Awesome Day, Great Course!

The course is in great shape. Play was very slow as there was a group of 20 playing in front of me. The challenge is there is no ranger to keep pace of play going within reason. The round lasted almost 5 hours. This is not typical, usually a 3.5 hour round.

Try this one

Fairways are better than the greens at Chapel Hill. Greens are some of the best around.
