Welcome to Great Oaks Country Club
c. 1971
Great Oaks founded in 1971 and nestled in the rolling hills of Oakland County, in the heart of Rochester, Michigan, Great Oaks Country Club is one of metro Detroit’s best kept secrets. Once a Black Angus farm, Great Oaks was purchased from Howard McGregor, a prominent business man of the Rochester Area, by the Slavik family in 1968 for development. In 1971 Great Oaks Country Club was opened featuring the famous McGregor Mansion as the Clubhouse. Towering oak trees lined the boulevard to the clubhouse, providing it with its name. With continued growth the mansion was replaced with current 43,000 square foot clubhouse in 1989. Since then Great Oaks has become the social hub of Rochester and the only private family-centric, truly member owned club in the area.
Great Oaks championship golf course was the vision of renowned course architect William Newcomb. Following the master plan of the Membership, updates to the course, most recently a $3.5M renovation in 2006, have been completed by McCumber Associates. Great Oaks has had the honor of hosting the Michigan Amateur Qualifier and the Michigan Ladies Amateur. 
Other recreational activities include the North Oakland County Summer Suburban League Tennis Program and its very popular Swim Program, Michigan Inter-Club Swim Association (MICSA).
Of course, no well-rounded, sought-after country club would be complete without the best food in the area and Great Oaks also holds that distinction. Executive Chef Nate Lewis heads a talented culinary team and is committed to using seasonal, fresh produce along with creative menus for your dining pleasure. Celebrate your special occasion or enjoy one of our social dining events and we will provide an expertly trained and attentive staff to make it a memorable affair.
Today, Great Oaks continues to thrive with an active family membership providing activities for all interests. Bricks and mortar may build a club; however, it is the membership that creates a warm and welcoming environment and Great Oaks is well known in the region for their hospitality and bringing members together in life-long friendships.
