Comments

Established in 1881, Oakwood Country Club in Kansas City, MO is the oldest country club in the region and possibly the state. Many well known celebrities and golfing royalty have frequented this club over the years, including Harry Truman, who is known to have visited the club numerous times over his life. The course has the look and feel of an old school country club and it provides quite a test of your golfing skills. Tom Watson redesigned the course in 1991 and I’ve got to think he missed his calling as a prison architect. True to an old school country club course, the fairways are lined with mature trees and most greens are protected by 2 or 3 sentries, of the sand trap variety. So, keeping your ball in the fairways (and not in the trees or sand) is critical; one errant ball will add one or two strokes to that hole’s score. The course is very well groomed and maintained. The club house is beautiful and stately as you might imagine for a club with this pedigree. Interestingly, the front nine has few cart paths so, if it rains hard, members may be restricted to the back nine. Oakwood Country Club is one of the most notable clubs in KC. It is hidden in the 435/Holmes area so, if you can find it and know a member, ask them nicely to host you at this fine club.
