Oakley Country Club was founded in 1898 upon two principles: First, to provide an opportunity for outdoor sports and second, to provide a congenial meeting place for friends. Although many changes have occurred during the past century, the principal purposes remain the foundation of Oakley's reputation and success.
Shortly after the club was founded, a young golfer arrived from Scotland to redesign Oakley's golf course and to compete professionally in America. Donald Ross would grow from his initial employment at Oakley to become one of the legendary golf course architects of the twentieth century. While any "Donald Ross" course is distinctive and distinguished, the uniqueness of Oakley Country Club's Golf Course is that it represents the very first Ross commission in America.
Excitement for our second century abounds. Our clubhouse and social activities, our pool and tennis events and our classic golfing venue await a new era of Oakley competition and camaraderie. Every generation of Oakley members has passed along a deep affection for our traditions and our spirit of neighborly fellowship. We sincerely hope that you will join in the Oakley spirit, enjoy our enviable facilities and help us make Oakley an even better environment for sport and socializing in the years to come.
