         Seven Oaks at Colgate

In 1934, a young architect by the name of Robert Trent Jones was brought to Hamilton to begin work on designing the course as one of his first projects. Unfortunately, due to the great depression and WWII, the course and his plans were continuously postponed.  It finally officially opened on July 4th, 1958. Seven Oaks is characteristic of all Jones’ courses, which include strategic deployment of water, along with extensive tee areas and large, expansive greens.
