Q&A with Teryl Ver Ploeg, Board President
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
Our course has tee to green hard surface cart paths. Rainy days won't prevent golfers from playing.
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
Golfers will find the course to be family friendly and a good test of skill as they enjoy playing across our large, fast greens.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
During the week, it's generally easy to get on the course right away.
However, the club does hold activities, so golfers are encouraged to call the pro shop before they arrive.
Dense tree lines and encroaching out-of-bounds areas form tunnels of narrow fairways at Oskaloosa Golf Course, which has stood as a verdant playground for golfers since 1920. Players must keep tight control over drivers and putters en route to conquering the course’s par of 72, highlighted by accessible par 5s and shorter par 3s with greens that are reachable from tee shots or by flattery whispered into fringe. At just 446 yards, the par 5 fifth hole forges a straight path between two straddling fairways, opening the door for eagles and birdies. This linear hole design is somewhat of a rarity, however, as half of the holes feature a dogleg turn of some degree. After putting and strutting through the labyrinth of undulating greens, golfers can retire and refuel at the new On the Green sports bar, restaurant, and patio.
