The International Oaks Course Hole 5

Set in the rolling hills of central Massachusetts in the quaint small town of Bolton is the newly redesigned Oaks Golf Course at The International Club. Considered Greater Boston’s premier private club, the vision is to provide a unique and welcoming environment for its members and guests from around the globe.

Purchased by Escalante Golf in February 2021, the Oaks has undergone extensive renovations with the main goal being to recapture the original beauty of the course. Former University of Oklahoma star Tripp Davis, now a renowned course architect of 20 years, is overseeing the renovation of the Tom Fazio design.

Founded in 1901, the private, golf orientated club is a 36-hole facility, encompassing approximately 680 acres. Striving to offer excellent service and attention to minute details will be the core goal of the seasoned staff’s commitment to the club’s members and their guests.

The Oaks course has been lengthened with additional tee boxes added. There are four sets of tee boxes to accommodate players of all levels. One of the main goals of the renovation was to improve the bunkers and waste areas. All bunkers have been redesigned and filled with crushed limestone, which has been mined locally. The new scalloped bunkering frames all of the holes, giving the player a perfect mental image of the holes routing. Players will find the greens to be fast and firm and random pin positions will give the opportunity for a different experience each day.

Both the Clubhouse, which houses the restaurant, pro shop and offices, and Fireside Room have been completed renovated. The Lodge now offers 15 overnight rooms for use by members and their guests. A new state of the art clubhouse is on the drawing board to be built in the near future.

In addition to the Oaks Course, members will find the Geoffrey Cornish designed Pines Course equally challenging. The Pines opened in 1955 and is currently the longest golf course in the world at 8,325 yards. Slated to close at the end of the 2022 season, the Pines will be renovated by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore. The course is expected to reopen in Spring of 2024.

The International also features a large recently renovated practice facility. The area features level tee decks on both sides of the range, added targets for improved distance control practice and enhanced short game practice areas, including bunkers.

One of Greg Norman’s LIV Golf Invitational Series tournaments will be played at The International from September 2-4. There will be 8 tournaments in total, which will include 4 US cities.
