Oak Hill Country Club started out in 1921 with a 9-hole course laid out by Wayne Stiles but, within six years, further land was acquired to allow Donald Ross to add another nine holes at a final construction price of $65,000. Two years later, Ross was brought back to renovate the Stiles layout at a cost of $35,000.

According to the book The Life and Work of Wayne Stiles by Bob Labbance and Kevin Mendik, “Ross remodelled holes 1, 2, 4, 6 and 9,” after he added the second nine so although the original routing was retained, “only four holes on the 6,586-yard layout escaped his hand.

“Since then, most of the remaining holes have been altered. Geoffrey Cornish and William Robinson rebuilt the greens on the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th holes in 1968; Brian Silva replaced the 204-yard 8th in 1989; and Bruce Hepner peformed a bunker renovation and other green site work in 1995.

The authors continue: “Oak Hill has hosted state and regional tournaments many times, starting with the 1935 Massachusetts Open won by Gene Sarazen. Multiple visits by the New England Amateur and New England PGA have seen champions of every ilk tested with all the best equipment of their eras; and no one has dominated the layout in commanding fashion.”
