2016 Senior Men's Club Champion
Welcome to the 2017 Golf Season at Oneka Ridge!
The Senior Men's Club is a group of over 200 dedicated golfers age 55 and over who live in 40 different communities. The group tees off every Tuesday and Thursday (weather permitting) between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. from early April until mid-November, however there is no requirement to play a minimum number of rounds each year. Play at all times is governed by the rules described in the USGA rule book. The Club Championship is held in mid to late August. New members are always welcome, in fact we added 30 new members in 2016 alone.

"I have found the Senior league to be such a fine group of men. All talent groups seem to be represented within its ranks.
Oneka's course fits well with the newer and seasoned players, giving challenges to many skill levels of the players.
The course is kept up and has been improved each of the many years I have been a member. I would recommend it to anyone." ---Mark S."
"I have been a member of the Oneka Golf Course for about 10 years and the Senior Men’s League for about the same. It has been a very positive experience in every way. The management team is first class, the course is always in great shape and the fellowship with the other players and the management team is simply 'to make it like home'. Thank you to all of the staff at Oneka and other golfers for making those golf days pleasant and refreshing." ---Lee R.
"I have been a member of the Oneka Ridge Senior Men's League for over 10
years. During that time, membership has grown by over 100 players. This
growth has occurred while many courses in this area have seen significant
drops in memberships.
Why has Oneka Ridge been so successful? These are the reasons to me.
The greenskeeping crew continues to make improvements to the course that
enhance it's natural beauty.
Staff has worked closely with our League providing well managed events
twice a week.
They have kept our costs to play very competitive
They offer quality golf equipment at a fair price.
Finally what is offered by all staff and made a top priority by management
is customer service. Golfers keep coming back because they like the way they
are treated and they have fun. And those are the reasons I will be back
again next year." ---Chuck M
"In the few years since joining the seniors league at Oneka Ridge GC my golf game has not improved much, if at all, but the pleasure of being able to play twice a week on a great golf course with some wonderful guys has been, and continues to be the highlight of my summers.
During the past several years you have done some great things to make the course both beautiful and even more playable. It's my hope to continue playing with the seniors on Oneka Ridge for many more years."
Thanks ---Bob F.
