Serving as the Golden Age answer to the more modern styling of the Green Bay Country Club, there are rumors the course at Oneida Golf and Country Club may be even more historic than suggested; although the architect of record is Stanley Pelcher, some believe that C.H. Alison came up from his work at Milwaukee Country Club to assist.
For now this is just conjecture, but there are certainly Golden Age stylings at Oneida...although perhaps touches reminiscent of architects outside of Alison. For example, there are hints of Redan (a la Macdonald and Raynor) at Nos. 11 and 13. The latter hole plays in the traditional Redan direction (right to left) with the green and its defending bunker elevated above Duck Creek.
That body of water winds throughout the property, generally playing a more passive, attractive role rather than operating as a hazard. At No. 6, however, players will need to cross the creek right before the green and during No. 16, the fairway runs along the creek for almost the entirety of this dogleg left. It still looks good, but you’ll feel much differently about the creek if you play the corner too aggressively.
