With a pair of 18-hole courses, Oak Ridge Golf Club presents golfers with classically opposing golf experiences. The Old Oaks Course is the older of the two, with features that classify it as a quintessential parkland course, including shallower bunkers, larger greens, and all sorts of trees—big ones, small ones, and ones that will knock golf balls back into the fairway if you threaten to burn a three-wood. The Marsh Course, though built more recently, actually draws its inspiration from the classic links style, the oldest mode of course architecture there is. Here golfers contend with relatively minuscule greens, deep pot bunkers, and almost no trees to contain errant shots..

PGA pros Alex Macko and Alex "Breezy" Koskos propagate sound pin-hunting form from their post at Jawor's Golf Center, which fosters year-round practice with indoor and outdoor training areas. The duo can demystify the subtle mechanics of the golf swing at the center's 44-tee driving range, which features 14 covered, heated stalls that enable practice sessions during inclement weather. With clubs and apparel from brands such as Callaway, TaylorMade, and Titleist, the full-service pro shop offers equipment upgrades as well as repair services for club shafts snapped by players who mistakenly teed up a bocce ball. Two outdoor, 18-hole mini-golf courses buttress the facility, inviting players to work on their putting form as life-size cartoon characters break the tension after a missed gimme or a dispute about whether or not an abandoned shoe is an acceptable ball marker.
