Members and their guests

The South Course at Oakland Hills was laid out by Donald Ross in 1918, and it has hosted sixteen top tournaments, among them half a dozen US Opens, three PGA Championships, a Ryder Cup, one each of the US Men's and Women's Amateurs and a pair of US Senior Opens. Indeed, Oakland Hills' first club pro was Water Hagen, winner of five PGA Championships. When the US Open came in 1951, Robert Trent Jones was brought in to sharpen the South's teeth, so that victor Ben Hogan boasted that he had "brought this monster to its knees." All the challenges are out in the open, though, and it is a great pleasure to play where golfing greats have trod, a pleasure enhanced by the requirement for players to have caddies. The standout hole is the 498-yard 18th, a par 4 for the pros and a par 5 for lesser lights.

This is a beautiful park like course. They have thinned out the trees over the past few years so that from the elevated clubhouse you can see probably 70% of the course. The greens are some of the most diabolical greens I have ever played on. It's long and a true test of golf. Ben Hogan dubbed it "The Monster"...
