From its opening in 1972, this Pete Dye Designed Beauty quickly became one of the top ranked courses in the country. It immediately made the Golf Digest Top 25 Best Public Courses In America, and has maintained a lofty status.
Oak Hollow is fortunate to have many of the unique characteristics of a Pete Dye design including railroad ties, pot bunkers, several peninsula greens and even an island tee. However our small, undulating greens serve as our most recognizable Dye trademark.
Oak Hollow Golf Course is located adjacent to Oak Hollow Lake. This challenging, scenic layout will test all your golfing skills. We hope that its beauty and superb conditions will make your experience a memorable one.
The signature hole is the 420-yard, par-4 sixth, a dogleg left around the lapping waters of the lake. An island tee box at the tip offers a challenge for the brave. The rest of the golfers can bite off as much of the dogleg as they feel they can chew. It's a well-earned par.
The second hole, a short par five, is another example of Pete Dye's risk/reward style. At 456 yards from the mixed tees, it invites a golfer to go for the green in two. It's an easy par-5 if the golfer lays up to the left of the long, narrow green, but almost everyone goes for it in two. Long hitters who can get a short iron in their hands for the approach shot have a distinct advantage. Anyone attacking the green with a 5-iron or more is leaning heavily on luck because the green isn't really designed to take such a shot and the ball often rolls off to set up some very difficult chip shots.
The 11th hole, a 437-yard par-4, may be the toughest hole on the course, as it demands a perfectly placed tee shot. A three-tiered green along the waters edge also adds to the difficulty of this challenging hole.
The 15th hole is a par-5 with a roller-coaster fairway and sharp dogleg left. To get home in two requires a long, well placed tee shot. The second shot has to avoid the deep ravine just to the left side of the elevated green. A well placed lay up gives you a level approach of about a hundred yards to this small bunkered green.
Finally, the 18th hole is another par-4 that peaks out at 448 yards and is a strong finishing hole. Not only is a long tee shot required, but the second is a difficult all-carry long iron to a narrow green.
