Home of the Belt Tech Country Oaks Classic, Country Oaks Golf Club welcomes golfers with a par 72 course on a 140-acre former dairy farm, covered in lush zoysia grass and the occasional shimmering pond. Remnants of the course’s agricultural heritage dot the landscape, including a white silo that casts the course’s trademark shadow on the 18th hole. A complete course description can be found online. Within Country Oaks’ white picket fence resides a full-size driving range as well as a last-minute, one-stop pro shop where golfers can purchase a shiny new set of clubs or plaid shoelaces to match their pants.
Country Oaks Golf Club
Though lush fairways and gently undulating greens have replaced the acres of cornfields at Country Oaks Golf Club, quaint reminders of the course’s bucolic past are everywhere. A tall white silo stands sentry at the first tee box, greeting golfers as they head out for their round. A white picket fence proves a common sight as it cordons off the 140-acre plot from the surrounding farmland and prevents trespassing by ghostly baseball players.
First tee shots on the 514-yard, par 5 opening hole will need to clear a small pond—an early introduction to the water scattered throughout the rest of the course. In fact, 4 out of the first 5 tee shots will need to clear water, and 11 feature water prominently at some point. On the watery, 300-yard 18th hole, the long shadow of the old silo welcomes golfers back in as they sink their final putts and head into the Dairy Barn, now home to the course pro shop.
