Shady Oaks Country Club


Featured Golf Course Review:
Shady Oaks Country Club -- Deceptive Shady Oaks
Review by: Matthew Daze The course is well managed, and has few unplayable issues. Sloping fairways, and tree lined holes had to the charm. Although the course plays short, it holds interest through a creative layout, and natural hazards. Overall it is a great course for the tiny fee, and the assistance in the club house is very down to earth. The surrounding area is breath taking as well, which also adds to the experience.

Tam Golf Course -- Nice little course
Review by: RT Before the village of Niles took over the course (I believe in the late 60's) this was once Tam O' Shanter Country Club of PGA fame. Unfortunatly the village only bought one part of the parcel of land which contained the original clubhouse and a few of the holes (the majority of the holes were located south of Howard Street now an industrial area). The course is kept in very nice shape and has a couple of the old greens still remaining. The best hole (and one of the originals) is the par 3 sixth. A branch of the river winds up the left side of the green while a large deep sand trap guards the right. The only glaring downside to this course is that every fairway but one, parrellels the other. You keep going back and forth.
