History
In 1898. the Cambridge Golf and Country Club changed its name to Oakley Country Club. The original clubhouse was built and designed by Charles Bulfinch in 1808. A short time after the club was founded a young Scottish golfer came to America and redesigned the golf course and competed professionally. Donald Ross became a pro golfer and later a legendary course designer in the 20th century. Oakley Country Club is home to the first Donald Ross golf course in America. In 1963, the clubhouse was destroyed in a fire, but quickly rebuild to accommodate their growing members. The country club celebrated their centennial celebration in 1998 and continues to grow, expand and redesign to stay up-to-date and modern.

    We just had our wedding at Oakley Country Club 2 weeks ago and we were so happy with everything! Ann is great to work with and clearly knows what she is doing. She went above and beyond the day of the wedding (including helping me with the bobby pins in my hair during the reception!). We had our ceremony in the ballroom as well and due to our bands needs, we had to adjust the way that the ceremony was facing. Ann was right there with an idea that worked perfectly. The entire staff was great; we have heard nothing but good things about the experience from our guests. We were so happy at our food tasting as the food was delicious! A lot of times at weddings the food is just okay but this was some of the best wedding food we have ever had (a lot of our guests agreed!). The ballroom at the Club is beautiful as well as the golf course where we took pictures. Even though it was a little cloudy/rainy the day of our wedding, everything was perfect. We would fully encourage anyone looking to get married to check out Oakley Country Club for their venue.

    First off, Ann is incredible (she's the planner who coordinates everything). She knows her stuff and is always one step ahead! She even buttoned up my bustle the day of my wedding!

    The place is a gorgeous hidden gem. It has a view of Boston from the top of the hill and the main ballroom has huge windows and beautiful chandeliers. The food was incredible. My guests could also not get over how great the service was. The waiters came around so many times during cocktail hour and we're so accommodating.
    The food was delicious. And the wedding cake came with the package (one less thing to worry about). It's from klondmeister and it was so good! People were going back for seconds. I cannot praise this place enough. Everything was perfect and so organized to the minute without me having to worry about anything.

    Would highly recommend, especially since it was also a great value (and we had an open bar!)
