The Oaks Golf Course in Madison is one of the area's most popular public courses. It offers a unique layout that is heavy on the par 3s. There are six of them along with five par 5s and nine, rather than the usual 12, par 4s. At just over 6,700 yards, the course is somewhat long but still manageable. The course features bentgrass greens, tees, and fairways that give it the feel of a country club course but also the friendly, casual atmosphere that comes with a public course. Water hazards come into play on a few holes and there are also areas of thick rough where you will be sure to lose some balls if you're not careful. In addition to the golf course, the Oaks also has a two-level grass tee short-game area that is equipped with practice bunkers and an expansive double-tiered putting green.
