Tour Oak Creek

Hole 1

Hole 1
Par 4
The golf course begins with the beautiful first tee sitting down in a valley. Driving the ball up hill challenges the golfers for distance and club choices. Golfers have the choice of 4 tee boxes. The 1st hole, while relatively straight and devoid of any sand bunkers, is no push over. The hole's defenses stem from the tall oak trees flanking both sides of the fairway, giving it the feeling of playing in a valley. Perception versus reality is the key. The green is perfectly guarded with a bunker strategically placed at the front right of the green.

Hole 2

Hole 2
Par 4
After the "warm-up" at the first hole, the golfer gets to experience a unique par four. Hole #2 is a very straight par four with two waste bunkers lining the left side of the fairway. Landing your tee shot center left in the fairway will allow you the best opportunity to par or birdie this hole. As with most really good holes, you are rewarded with good drive placement, but possibly punished for a bad one.

Hole 3

Hole 3
Par 4
The third hole at Oak Creek is another manageable par four. A long iron or hybrid will put your tee shot just ahead of the lay-up area. A large bunker is waiting for you back left of the green if you hit your second shot too far. This is a good par four in that the average golfer has a chance for par, while the aggressive player can test his skill level without great stroke ‘loss’.

The fourth hole at Oak Creek is one of the signature holes on the property. Playing into the prevailing breeze, the landing area is flanked with a large waste bunker on the left. A sand bunker is located on the on the backside, and really comes into play if you hit it through the fairway. Enjoy the ride to your second shot as you pass through a historic tobacco barn. The green is situated perfectly on a slight incline from the landing area. Three bunkers surround the green if you miss on the short side.

Hole 5

Hole 5
Par 5
The fifth hole at Oak Creek allows golfers several options off of the tee. The sprawling pond cutting deep into the right side of the fairway forces a player to hit over the water or bail out to the left side of the fairway. A shot too far left however will close you out from advancing your ball on your second shot. The layup shot should be played to the right side of the fairway. Beware as another pond lingers to the left side of the fairway as you get closer to the green. The front left of the green is guarded by water and a long bunker lining the front.

Hole 6

Hole 6
Par 3
After the short but tricky 5th hole, the golfer is presented with a fairly long, straight forward par three. As bunkers line the front left and back right of the hole it is necessary to hit the correct yardage off the tee to score.

Hole 7

Hole 7
Par 5
The seventh hole is a visually striking hole. The position of the ground in the tee box areas forces the visual aspect of a blind shot. The hole is fairly straight forward but, being one of the longest par fives on the course, it makes golfers think about the second shot a little more in depth. Water guards the left side of the fairway during the second shot. If you are able to keep you second shot safe, enjoy hitting your third shot up to an elevated green flanked by two bunkers.

Hole 8

Hole 8
Par 3
The eighth hole is a dramatic par three that plays slightly downhill. A lovely pond covers most of the right side of the hole, but be weary that even if you end up hitting over the water a deep bunker is waiting to collect your ball. The best miss on this hole is slightly left of center.

Hole 9

Hole 9
Par 4
This climatic ninth hole is the shortest par four on the course. For long hitters this hole is the perfect definition of risk reward. An accurate tee shot is absolutely necessary as a large waste bunker guards the front left of the fairway. Don’t miss your tee shot right as the slope of the fairway and rough will move your ball into a hazard. The narrow green forces the player to hit a solid second shot. You have to command your clubs to control this hole.

Hole 10

Hole 10
Par 4
The tenth hole is the number one handicap hole on the course. A slight dogleg left with the general slope of the fairway running right makes this all uphill hole daunting for all. The visible bunker on the right makes an intimidating scene off the tee, but don’t worry, as a moderate drive will clear the hazard. The green sits very high on the hill and requires the player to choose a proper club for the elevation.

Hole 11

Hole 11
Par 3
After completion of the hardest par four on the course you get to relax on the second shortest par three at Oak Creek. The green has no type of hazards, so making up for any lost strokes on number ten would be rewarding. The best place to miss any shot off the tee is left of the green as most of the undulations and slope of the hole are on the right side.

Hole 12

Hole 12
Par 5
The twelfth hole has a visual aspect that is deceiving off the tee. This impressive par five has two dog legs and many hidden hazards. Hitting your tee shot center left of the fairway is extremely important to start the hole properly. Most players will not be able to reach this hole in two, so choosing your perfect third shot yardage is necessary for you to score. With three bunkers guarding the front of the green, choosing the correct club allows the player to hit the center of the green.

Hole 13

Hole 13
Par 3
The thirteenth hole is a sensational par three that plays downhill slightly. Thick trees and brush flank the full right side of the hole, but a perfectly placed hill presents itself on the left side of the green to help any miss hit shots possible funnel right onto the green.

Hole 14

Hole 14
Par 5
The fourteenth hole at Oak Creek is the longest par five on the course. Stretching 625 yards from the back tee, this hole is challenging for all players. No bunkers or hazards are in your way off the tee. Hit your tee shot as far as you can. The hole does dogleg so placing your tee shot just left center would be perfect for setting up your second shot. With no green side bunkers guarding the hole, feel confident going for pin.

Hole 15

Hole 15
Par 3
The fifteenth hole at Oak Creek is a very dramatic par three. This hole is the shortest hole on the property, but don’t be deceived, as the green is guarded with many deep bunkers. Hitting the shot to the center back of the green makes a good score achievable.

Hole 16

Hole 16
Par 4
The sixteenth hole at Oak Creek absolutely offers one of the most spectacular views on the course. The large gully off the tee gives any player the illusion of a daunting task. The width of the fairway is bigger than it seems from the tee box. This relatively short par four makes this hole rewarding when played correctly. Hitting your tee shot in center of the fairway and choosing the correct club to the elevated green will allow any player the possibility to score at or below par.

Hole 17

Hole 17
Par 5
After the short but tricky sixteenth hole, the golfer is presented with another ambitious par five. Sweeping fairways and plenty of bunkers guard the best part of the fairway. Fighting the continuous elevation of the hole makes scoring very rewarding.

Hole 18

Hole 18
Par 4
The beautiful finishing par four eighteenth hole is thrilling. The mid length, dogleg par four makes for such a great finishing hole. A tee shot just clearing the dogleg to the right side of the fairway would put any approach shot in perfect position to score. The finishing green sits below your feet so choosing a correct yardage is important for you score. Be careful with you approach as water guards the left side of the green.
