Lifestyle: Your Family’s Haven by the River...

Welcome to Willow Oaks Country Club, a premier private haven of recreation and fellowship for the entire family. Located on the majestic James River, our members enjoy superior golf, tennis, fitness and swimming. Our updated clubhouse, built around “the old house” (the original Millhiser home, constructed from two homes dating back to the 1700s), offers superior dining and socializing, and is the perfect setting for special events.

Since its opening in 1957, the 7100-yard Willow Oaks golf course has been recognized as one of Virginia’s superior layouts. Originally designed by W.F. Gordon and Son of Philadelphia, the par-72 course was recently renovated by renowned golf course architect, Lester George, to take full advantage of its location beside the scenic James River. The Bermuda grass tees and fairways make the course well-suited to remain open year-round for walkers and riders alike. Small wonder the State Open of Virginia has been played here multiple times. In 2010, Golf Digest named it one of the Top Ten New Golf Course Remodels in the U.S. Additionally, Golf Digest also recognized Willow Oaks’ head pro, Richard White, as one of 2010-2011’s “Best Teachers in Virginia.”

The Willow Oaks tennis tradition is exceptionally strong. The layout includes eight superb outdoor courts (six Har-Tru and two asphalt sport-deco courts). The recently renovated indoor facility features four brand new Deco Turf II courts. Our four full-time Pros focus on an active tennis program regardless of age and ability level, including a robust junior program with more than 200 active participants. In addition, Virginia Living magazine recently listed our head pro as one of the top three tennis professionals in Central Virginia.

Our Fitness Center boasts the latest in group exercise and personal training, including the TRX system. Training for a marathon? We offer a variety of sport-specific training options as well as nutritional counseling and massage therapies. In the summer, you’ll find our families relaxing by the pool, or cheering on the Willow Oaks Waves swim team.

In addition feeding your athletic appetites, Willow Oaks is committed to offering an active social agenda which includes our annual River party, Fall music series on the patio, holiday dinners, children’s parties and camps, and various other member functions. We have carefully cultivated an environment that celebrates and caters to family, providing our members a feeling of home away from home.

Whatever your taste, sport, age or interests, there’s a Willow Oaks membership plan right for you. If you feel that you and your family deserve the best, perhaps it’s time we talked.
