Oak Management works in various capacities within the golf-course management arena. The following examples detail how we have contributed to some of the area’s best known courses.
Bay Pointe Golf Club contracted Oak Management to assist in the operations of their course in 2006. Over the subsequent three years we have rescued this entity from bankruptcy and are pleased to say they are now operationally profitable. Originally a private club, Bay Pointe has been converted into a public golf course. To ensure the ongoing profitable operations at Bay Pointe, Oak Management has recently taken ownership of this landmark golf course and banquet facility. We look forward to serving the area community for years to come.

Bay Pointe course details:

  • 18 holes
  • Built in 1966
  • 6220 Yards
  • Course rating 69.9
  • Slope rating 124
  • Bent Grass
In 2000, Oak Management took over ownership and the operations of the Links of Pinewood. Subsequently the property was sold to the Commerce Township DDA. Oak Management experienced a robust banquet/grill and golf business while associated with this property. We continued to operate successfully until alternate-use property development started in the fall of 2007. The Links of Pinewood was a true “Up-North” experience. Nestled amongst some of the tallest pines in southeast Michigan, its loss to development leaves many loyal customers with little option for its replacement.

Links of Pinewood course details:

  • 18 holes
  • Built in 1985
  • 6676 Yards
  • Course rating 72.3
  • Slope rating 130
  • Bent Grass
During the same time period of the Links of Pinewood transition, Commerce Township DDA also purchased the Eldorado property. Oak Management was then contracted to provide the management services at that course, as the DDA determined that Oak Management provided superior services. At both facilities Oak Management was able to dramatically improve the quality of the golf experience as well as increase overall revenue and play.

El Dorado course details:

  • 18 holes
  • Built in 1967
  • 5758 Yards
  • Course rating 68.3
  • Slope rating 122
