East Course at Oak Hill Country Club

Kilbourn Rd Rochester, NY 14618


Golf Course Description

This club has two regulation courses. The East Course, the more difficult design, is quite demanding from off every tee box. The greens are medium-sized, slightly undulating and can be difficult to read. Water hazards (ponds and creeks) come into play on five holes. The signature hole is #13, a 594-yard, par 5, requiring a well-placed tee shot up a narrow fairway, then an approach shot over water to a well-bunkered green. The West Course is easier and not as demanding off the tee as the East Course. The lush fairways are more forgiving, and the medium-sized greens are fast. There is no water coming into play on this course; however, there are several sand bunkers. The club hosted the 1956, 1968, and 1989 U.S. Opens and will host the PGA Championship, considered the toughest test in golf, in 2003. “Golf Digest” rated the East Course as the 4th “Best in State” course from 1995 through 1998, and also rated it 20th best out of “America’s 100 Greatest Courses” for 1995-96, and 22nd best for 1997-98. In addition, “GOLF Magazine” selected it 18th in the category of the “Top 100 Courses in the U.S.” for 1995, 19th in 1997 and 21st in 1999. “GOLFWEEK” ranked it 32nd among “America’s 100 Best Classical Courses” for 1997, 37th in 1998 and 36th in 1999. This club also hosted the 1995 Ryder Cup matches. The West Course hosted the 1998 U.S. Amateur.
