Old Oak Country Club is situated only 20 minutes from Chicago, but the beautifully wooded terrain shaded by mature oaks and hickory trees, makes it feel as though it's much further away. Originally opened in 1926, the golf course is one of the area's oldest and even one of the oldest in the state. It has undergone many renovations over the years but it still retains its classic character. The layout offers plenty of variety with drivable par 4s and lengthy par 5s. The rolling topography provides many of the golf course's challenges, from the rolling fairways and undulating greens to the elevated tees and blind shots. Mature trees tower over the fairways, adding another tricky element to the golf course. Old Oak Country Club is challenging but fair and still quite playable, which is why it has long been a local favorite.

Just ok

The course is in ok shape. It’s a fun layout but nothing special. The staff isn’t very friendly. I was questioned by the starter about a collared shirt as I was getting out of my car in the parking lot. It was $42 on GolfNow plus a $5 cart key deposit that was good for a “free” pitcher of lite beer when you return it. Seems strange to encourage drinking a pitcher of beer before you drive home?!?
