Oak Hills Golf Course opened for play in 1969 under the direction of architect Alfred H. Tull, who also helped design such renowned courses as Brandywine, Congressional, and Westchester Country Clubs. The 18-hole layout bears many features that became design traits of Mr. Tull's throughout his illustrious seven-decade career. The course is characterized by dense, tree-lined fairways with curved features, rolling terrain with elevation changes, and large green designs that showcase his inability to draw a perfect circle. Golfers must wield their putters confidently to slay the aggressive greens on holes such as No. 5, a par 3 with a 195-yard tee shot with forced carry over water, and No. 11, with its sharp dogleg fairway and right-to-left sloping green protected by numerous bunkers.
Though a public course, Oak Hillls offers many of the amenities found at a private club. Among these include eight tennis courts and an onsite restaurant, ideal for posting "lost golf ball" signs and celebrating after a day on the fairways.

Heiwado translates to “the way of peace and harmony,” and the students at this dojo don’t go looking for trouble. Instead, they focus on challenging themselves—getting into shape through rigorous martial-arts-flavored fitness and self-defense classes. Students soak up techniques developed by Sensei Antrone Kelley, who has whittled away the arbitrary elements of karate, muay thai, and kickboxing and combined the useful remainder into a refined fighting form, effective in the ring or on the street.
