A diverse collection of mature trees populates Oronoque Country Club's 18-hole course, their sturdy trunks imbuing the 6,575-yard layout with the venerable feel that only comes with age. However, the trees are far from just a cosmetic asset. Whether casting their shadows over straight fairways or using their knotty arms to block corner-cutting drives on the course's five dog-leg holes, the trees play a major role in making the mid-length course both challenging to golfers and attractive to retirement-age squirrels. The course also features two ponds that come into play, including one that creates a forced-carry tee shot on the par 3 third hole. Elsewhere, the club boasts a driving range, a practice green, and a trio of golf instructors that help correct swings and teach visitors to ride bareback on golf carts.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,575 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 73.7 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

Twin Lakes Golf Course is set on grounds that have been walked by golfers for more than 50 years, but enjoy the modern touches of a recent revamping. New tee boxes reside atop the professionally manicured greens that carpet the 10-acre course. Its renovated clubhouse offers guests the supplies they need for gameplay, including clubs and pull carts. After a round, players can return to the clubhouse where pizza bubbles in a wood-burning oven and cool beverages flow freely from taps.

At The Fairways Driving Range, players can practice all the skills they need to excel on the course. Golfers can take aim at grass target greens at a range with grass tees as well as covered mat hitting areas. A greenside sand trap lets golfers hone their scrambling skills, and a 4,000 square-foot, bent-grass practice green provides a slick surface for golfers to work on their touch with the putter. The practice facility also lets players demo a number of training aids to perfect their form.

At Studio Golf, players smack their golf balls into a large screen that displays a highly accurate visual of a real golf course and uses ball flight information to produce real-world results. Rather than travel to oft-distant courses and schlep their clubs around 18 holes, players get to remain indoors and let the computer do the traveling for them. The system can be configured for lessons and clinics in addition to 9- or 18-hole rounds, allowing players to focus on aspects of their game such as drives off the tee or iron approaches.

The 27 holes that comprise Centennial Golf Club cover 340 woodland acres of pristine greenery, earning the Larry Nelson-designed course a difficult to achieve rating of Outstanding from Golf Digest. The nine-hole slates—dubbed the Fairways, the Lakes, and the Meadows—are characterized by frequent undulations and numerous encounters with intersecting waterways. Evergreens line the fairways on most holes, stretching out their needles to snag errant shots and raise golf balls as adopted pine cones in the family tree.

Centennial Golf Club's sprawling facilities include state-of-the-art instruction, practice facilities, and the Grille Room with indoor and outdoor dining spaces.

Course at a Glance:

  • Three 9-hole, par 36 courses

  • Maximum 18-hole length of 7,133 yards

  • Maximum 18-hole course rating of 75.3

  • Maximum 18-hole slope rating of 145

  • Four sets of tees per hole

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.

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Total length of 6,317 yards from the back tees
