Company Director Mike King farmed the estate until the early-1990s, when he recognised the potential of the Oake Manor land to be a golf course.
He invited five architects who specialise in designing golf clubs to quote, chose the best, and the rest is history.
Designed in 1992 by Adrian Stiff who also built the Kendleshire & Players Club, the superb course at Oake Manor Golf Club offers a challenging and memorable round for all standards of player.
The layout of the course takes the golfer on a varied journey, taking in stunning views of hills and countryside. Easy walking and gently undulating, no two holes are alike and the entire course overflows with spectacular interest. A series of lakes, cascades and a natural trout stream run through the course, creating water hazards on ten of the 18 holes. You are never far away from the sound of running water and quite likely to spot a kingfisher, heron, swan or buzzard during your round.
In partnership with his superb and very loyal staff team, they have produced a great golf club. This well-established and extremely popular Championship Course is a firm favourite with golfers far and wide. Oake Manor Golf Club occupies a central role in the Somerset County Golf scene.
