    Oakmont Country Club Golf Course Review




    The Oakmont Country Clubs golf course is an 18 hole regulation length course featuring 7229 yards of golf from it longest tees for a 71 par, an 144 slope rating and a 76.8 course rating on blue grass. Metrics aside, this beautiful golf facility situated in Oakmont Pennsylvania was designed by architects Henry Clay Fownes, William Fownes and Tom Fazio and it was first opened to players in 1903. Fair warning, this is a private resort available just for its members and their guests. As far as old-school golf courses go, the Oakmont Country Club is one of the few venues in the US (and in the world actually) to have an incredibly rich championship tradition and since 1903, it hosted more PGA and USGA championships combined than any other golf course in the United States. The accolades of the Oakmont Country Clubs golf course include 8 US Opens, 5 US Amateurs, 3 PGA Championships and 2 US Womens Opens.

    Another thing to consider before playing here if the pedigree is not enough for you is the fact that the golf course at Oakmont is arguably one of the most difficult (if not the toughest) in the United States/North America, featuring two hundred and ten bunkers, slick and hard greens which slope away from the golfer and pretty tight fairways, which will require pin-point accuracy if you want to go home with a cool score card. The reputable golf magazine Golf Digest currently ranks the Oakmont Country Clubs golf course number 5 in Americas Top 100 courses, but in this writers opinion, theres more to that than meets the eye about this baby than what can be seen through the lens of a top 100. The Oakmont Country Clubs golf course is really one of United State's hardest venues and if you want to experience what pro-golfers do regularly in championship golf, this is the place where you must play at least once in this life.
