The Oaks Golf & Country Club
Equity membership prospectus

thanks to Rob Chilvers & Alf Thomas


Who

This brochure spoke to avid golfers in London Ontario, including members of the area's most prestigious golf clubs.

What
The Oaks offered the opportunity to participate as equity owners of a championship-level course designed with a unique mix of links-style and "stadium" layouts..

Why
Since the course was still under construction, the prospectus folder had to convey the overall quality of play it would offer and introduce the developer's concept of a club that gave playing members an ownership voice in its management.

Excerpt:

A Course for Players

The Oaks is a full Par 72 championship course built on the sandy banks and bluffs above the Thames River valley near Delaware, Ontario. Its 150 acres occupy an ideal site for golf, offering unusually mixed topography with excellent grass-growing conditions. The upper 9 holes recall a traditional links: wide open, heavily contoured fairways drawn by deeply grassed roughs and waste bunkers... As you enter the lower valley coming home, the look changes dramatically. The fairways level out to a more North American style as mature stands of oaks begin to challenge your sharpshooting ability.
