Oak Ridge Golf Club was built in the 1920’s and still is an old style golf course. Fairways are lined with large oaks and pines. Fairways and greens are rolling never leaving you with a flat lie or a straight putt. The back nine has three unique holes. Fourteen is a par three with an elevated green leading you to number fifteen the “Camel Back”. If you clear the camel back you have a straight shot to an elevated green. Number sixteen tee is on the same elevation teeing off to the green down below.
The dunes that border the golf course separate us from Lake Michigan and P.J. Hoffmaster State Park. You can always count on a cool breeze off the big lake in the afternoon.
In the the early days Oak Ridge was call Pontaluna Country Club and was private. During that time a golf match between Cliff Settergren, Byron Nelson, Jimmy Demaret, and Ben Hogan. Cliff and Byron teamed up for a 2 and 1 victory over Byron and Jimmy. Jimmy Demaret set the course record that day with 62. That record has since then been tied.
Oak Ridge is now open to the public and offers memberships. We are also available for corporate golf outings or any type of golf outing. Banquet facilities are located on the grounds but are a separate business. The pro-shop offers snacks and soft drinks and sells soft goods such as golf balls, gloves, shirts and hats.
