With membership limited to just 400 and their invited guests, the course is proud to declare itself a 5-star venue that is prestigious, unique, and exclusive.

Visitors Welcome at Remedy Oak

There are a few tee times reserved for those who avail themselves of the Remedy Oak Experience, which includes a round of golf, range balls, and some sustenance. The course is never overrun, making it a ‘tranquil, secluded and personal golf experience.’
