Nic Charles Photography - April 26

Since TJ Rodgers took over ownership in January 2017, the Oshkosh Country Club has been transitioning. We strive to be welcoming to families and corporate members.  With our wide variety of junior programs, newly remodeled pool and family golf times, its a great place to spend a day with the family.  We will now be offering corporate discounts for companies to bring out employee's and guests more reasonably. The golf course is now managed by Nick Bannach, an extremely bright individual who plans on taking this course to the next level. He has implemented an inter-seeding program that is making our greens healthier and will give us the options to have them play faster. Our Scottish themed steakhouse is a one of kind, from hand woven tartan to solid hickory tables. Our Chef, Micheal England was hired from Manhattan New York, where he was Executive Chef at The Palms. Chef Mike will not only execute the TJ's Highland Steakhouse menu, he will make sure food quality is fantastic all around the Oshkosh Country Club. We would love to give you a tour of the steakhouse and golf course or play a round of golf with you. Call 920-231-1076 for more information or stop in for a visit anytime.
