Oaks Course re­mains on cut­ting edge of golf

Course one of the best in Metro area

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

The Oaks Course here in Cov­ing­ton has re­vealed an in­no­va­tive and af­ford­able way to join a golf club and play in the At­lanta Metro area.

Dick and Nancy Schulz, own­ers of The Oaks Course, are ex­pe­ri­enced when it comes to think­ing out­side the box in the golf busi­ness. Three years ago they were one of the few golf cour­ses in the At­lanta Metro area that had ever switched from Bent grass greens to Ul­tra Dwarf greens.

Due to the dili­gence of Su­per­in­ten­dent Cur­tis Singleton, the greens are some of the fastest and smoothest in the coun­try.

Now, cour­ses such as At­lanta Ath­letic Club, Berke­ley Hills and even the world fa­mous East Lake CC are fol­low­ing suit due to the abil­ity of Ul­tra Dwarf to han­dle the heat ex­pe­ri­enced in the sum­mer­time.

The Oaks also of­fers one of the most ag­gres­sive and golfer friendly mem­ber­ship plans. The pro­gram al­lows mem­bers to play an un­lim­ited amount of golf at no charge when they pay a one-time ini­ti­a­tion fee and monthly dues.

What makes it dif­fer­ent from the tra­di­tional golf mem­ber­ship avail­able in At­lanta is the low cost. Golfers may choose be­tween sev­eral mem- berships de­pend­ing on the type of plan they are seek­ing.

As with the Ber­muda greens, this new ven­ture for The Oaks Course should start a trend in the golf busi­ness in the At­lanta Metro area that can only ben­e­fit the avid golfer.
