Type Public
Old Oak Country Club is situated only 20 minutes from Chicago, but the beautifully wooded terrain shaded by mature oaks and hickory trees, makes it feel as though it's much further away. Originally opened in 1926, the golf course is one of the area's oldest and even one of the oldest in the state. It has undergone many renovations over the years but it still retains its classic character. The layout offers plenty of variety with drivable par 4s and lengthy par 5s. The rolling topography provides many of the golf course's challenges, from the rolling fairways and undulating greens to the elevated tees and blind shots. Mature trees tower over the fairways, adding another tricky element to the golf course. Old Oak Country Club is challenging but fair and still quite playable, which is why it has long been a local favorite.

Not Happy!!

Waited at Pro Shop for 10 minutes with no one around to check us in. Person who checked us in acted as if he was doing us a favor and we interrupted his day. Golf ranger was more interested in chasing us off the course at twilight rather than speeding up play during our round. I’ve always enjoyed golfing at this course in the past but I’m not going back.

First Time Playing

Old Oak provides great Midwestern golf round

Spacious fairways and pretty wooded setting make Old Oak a good choice for f2f enthusiasts. The pace of play was bad and the ranger was out but it was unclear whether he tried to move along the foursome that were a problem. I will go back.

Very Scenic

We got a great value deal on a Saturday afternoon on golf now ($32). There was definitely a reason for it. Our tee time was stuck between a couple outings. We tee'd off late and there was a long wait between holes. The starter was going to move us to another hole but things cleared up nicely. We were able to finish our round but it took 5 hours. Still this is a great course. One of my favorite course layouts. I always see a lot of wild life when playing the course. Even with the outings the greens we're in good shape. Cart girl was present every other hole which was good and bad. Tall boys of PBR were $3.

Greens need work

Greens were in rough shape, cracked areas and very bumpy from a lot of pitch marks that were not repaired. Greens were really slow and need attention!

Fine day

Had a late afternoons time. Starter was great and got me to a tee that was open as both 1&10 were crowded. Was able to get 18 in even starting at 5:15. Great time definitely coming back soon

Smart club selection a must

I love the layout of this course. Challenging yet fair. Beware the sand traps are in need of work, so try to avoid.

Consider playin the blue for the two digit handicaper. Choose your clubs carefully as drive is not always the best option if you want to score low.

Tee boxes were moved up during this round so it made courses even shorter than the advertised 6000+ yards, but still delivered some challenging holes

Definitely a play again but traps need sand and a good deep raking.
