Oakway Golf Course is a Par 3 course located less than 10 minutes from the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, OR. Nestled in the Oakway neighborhood, Oakway is a favorite for locals looking to fit in a quick round of golf. They do not accept tee times, which can be a positive and a negative. While there can be a longer wait in the summer months, you can typically walk on to the course in less than an hour.
While it is a short course, you will have some opportunity to play your full assortment of clubs. On a few occasions, you will be able to pull out your driver. Heavy hitters will have more than a few opportunities to drive the green, since there are very few doglegs. Beware of errant tee shots though, as houses line many the fairways, inhaling golf balls that miss their mark. Water come in to play on a few occasions, although in most cases, you have to severely miss hit the ball to bring them in to play. Oakway is a very easy course to walk, due to the flatness of the course, and the fact that it takes just around 3 hours to complete 18 holes.
There are few practice facilities at Oakway, consisting primarily of a practice green off of the 10th tee box. The pro shop is on the smaller side, and provides a few snacks and beverages, and standard golf necessities, such as balls and tees. Oakway also has an 18 Hole Disc Golf Course, for those who want to play both on a sunny day.
