All About The Oswego Lake Country Club (OLCC)

All About The Oswego Lake Country Club (OLCC) in Lake Oswego, OregonLake Oswego Living

If you are interested in Lake Oswego real estate, then you are usually interested in golfing, schools, boating, or all three. The Country Club is a huge asset to the community and the desirability of living here. Tucked in around the towering evergreen trees and off Country Club Road in the North Shore – Country Club District is The Oswego Lake Country Club.

Since 1924 the Oak trees, Douglas Fir and Maple trees have provided golfers with paradise for golfers on the par 71 course. Skill and golf pride is truly felt in the fairways at OLCC. The Audubon Society recognized this club with the award for responsible stewardship. There are real grass practice grounds at the driving range with target greens. The practice bunkers and the short-game practice area is all professional. U.S. Amateur Champion Chandler Egan designed the original golf course and there’s no doubt he put a tremendous amount of thought into creating OLCC. Mr. Egan also played a vital part in reworking the links at Pebble Beach back in 1922 and most of us know PB is on most golfers short list to play one day.

Oswego Lake Club membership is an important part of maintaining the quality of play at OLCC. Golf course maintenance is not inexpensive. A large staff is paramount in assisting that everything come together. Please contact the club office for more details on membership but here’s a brief outline. The social membership allows members to use club dining facilities, swimming pool, snack bars and participate in club functions. This level of membership allows use of the driving range and practice facilities and social status invites you to compete in in two-ball events. Proprietary membership opens up members to full club access! The course and range are available to use and there are voting privileges on initiatives that are raised by the club board and its committees. All facilities, events and amenities including junior programs are open to OLCC members at the proprietary level.

Oswego Lake Country ClubOLCC prints a member news magazine called TEE TALK. It highlights events on the club calendar and is a showcase for Men’s and Woman’s Club Champion and Senior Champions with pictures of winners. The magazine also features letters from the club president and reports from the greens department. Here, Golf Course Superintendent Bob Senseman can share his experience on water drainage issues, course sand and divot action and seeding the grass. Another important aspect of fairway playability is the schedule for verifying the course and closures while the grounds settle back down. To many folks this is to much talk about dirt and grass and to the golfers following closely it makes a lot of sense and we take pride in the conditions of the club. Monthly dues are important as well as the costs for capital improvement. Over the years alterations have been made to Oswego Lake Country Club. The course changed in dramatic ways in the 1950’s when the layout was updated. New tees are added in 1993 and fairways were improved to allow better drainage. Greens were enhanced and remain fast and near highest standards in the sport. What a great place to play where you live.

The CC motto is Live Where You Play and for 90 years members have called the OLCC an extension of their own homes. The clubhouse has museum quality golf memorabilia displayed within the landmarks walls. The property promotes comfort and class without being uptight and closed minded. In order to continue the success of these standards there are accommodating membership rates for applicants under age 39. This approach to membership promotes generations of contact with Lake Oswego’s pride in golf. Please contact Tiffany Smith the membership assistant to learn more about the comforts OLCC offers. She can be reached at 503.636.3631.

Lake Oswego Waterfront Homes MARCH 2014 REPORTlake oswego waterfront homes for sale

Oswego Lake Waterfront Property update: Lake Oswego Real Estate activity is increasing as the winter freeze wears off and buyers look around at 2014 market conditions. We certainly had more snow here at the lake then last year and the most snowfall over Christmas in a decade. Lake Oswego Lakefront property is almost always the most desirable, unless one is afraid of water or increased taxes, and the sale prices certainly reflect the appeal of living on or near Oswego Lake.

Here are details on Lake Oswego waterfront HOMES SOLD in the last  month (last 30 days).

4153 Westbay Road SOLD for $1,240,000 just $109,000 less then asking.

All of these Lake Oswego waterfront properties are wonderful and certainly a sound investment. The median Sold price is $1,475,000…not too shabby.

Looking For Lakeside Listings in Lake Oswego on the Lakers or The Pacers Side Of The Lake?

Looking For Lakeside Listings in Lake Oswego on the Lakers Side Of The Lake?LOHSMIssion

Lake Oswego waterfront homes

After last week’s football game between Lake Oswego High School and their rival on the other side of the lake Lakeridge High School, you may be changing your mind as the Lakers lost, but many people do in fact still want to make sure that they live on one side of the lake or the other because of their preference in schools, specifically the two rival high schools.  Although, both schools are stellar and LOHS has been consistently ranked as GOLD in US News, Lakeridge was not ranked academically as high as usual recently, unfortunately (and unfairly as we see it).

Whether you are a Pacer or a Laker, you can still live in one of the great Lake Oswego waterfront homes or one of the amazing Lake Oswego neighbohoods.  Lake Oswego is home to great opportunities in housing  including spectacular Oswego lakefront homes which compare to no others.  You can buy waterfront homes on either side of the lake.

LRHS Mission

In addition, if you don’t want the expense or maintenance of being a waterfront property owner, there are 20 Oswego Lake easements which provide access and amenities to the lake.  Oswego Lake is private, so if you want to take advantage of the beauty and water sports on the lake, then you definitely need to talk to us about which type of home and all neighborhood works best for your particular needs.  Not all easements on the lake are created equal and not all  homes in LO belong to easements.  Some Lake Oswego homes belong to more than one easement and some Lake Oswego homes for sale belong to no easements on the lake.  Finding someone who can guide you through the process is pretty important so that there are no surprises.

You can see Lake Oswego waterfront homes for sale on our corporate site. We are also happy to show you out favorites and help you figure out what park of the lake is best for you. LO@cooperjacobs.com

Let me know if you are interested and I can get you the details before it goes live. 

There are 5 Lake Oswego waterfront homes that are pending currently in the RMLS. They range in list price from $1,400,000 to $2,595,000 with a median list price of $1,795,000 and an average dollar per square foot of $427.

 Oswego Lake is a private lake and in order to be able to boat in it you must either live in a Lake Oswego waterfront home or live in a home with a lake/boat easement.

There are many different options for both choices. For Oswego Lake waterfront homes you can look at both the South and the North shore. There are also many canals and bays off of the main lake. There are two high schools in Lake Oswego so if a particular one is important to you than it is important to know where the Lake Oswego high school boundaries are.

Having an easement to Oswego Lake is a more affordable way to have good access to the lake. There are many different Lake Oswego neighborhood easements to choose to be a member of so again look at boundaries and also look at the individual easements themselves. They all differ from each other so choose a home in a neighborhood with an easement that suits you. Keep in mind they have limited boat slips and have different ways if allocating those to easement members so you may not get a slip right away or even soon.

Beautiful Oswego Lake….Labor Day Weekend Calm Before The Storm

Lake Oswego boatingLake Oswego Boating:  Took this shot off the boat last night on a quiet cruise without the kids.  Oswego Lake is a beautiful and peaceful place at night with only a few other souls out enjoying the calm. Should be the calm before the Labor Day weekend activity.  The weather in Lake Oswego this weekend is set to be boating perfect and ready for lots of last hurrah summer fun before school starts on Tuesday.
