Royal Oaks Country Club

Luxury, privacy, security, community and proximity enrich the lives and temper the hectic pace for residents of Royal Oaks Country Club, Houston’s newest and most luxurious master planned community. ROCC offers a private enclave of 500 acres and 850 select residences surrounding a superb golf course and premier private equity country club. Sheltered behind masonry walls and 24-hour-guard-gated entrances, ROCC offers unparalleled luxury and security within minutes of Houston’s business and entertainment centers, airports, museums, finest shopping, and gourmet restaurants. Home prices range from near $400,000 to upwards of $3 million in the estates section.

The heart of ROCC is the Fred Couples Signature golf course, a combination of traditional design and modern architectural techniques offering both beauty and challenge. The course encompasses more than 7,000 square yards, with nine lakes, multi-tiered greens, dramatic water features, and signature waterfalls. Dedicated golfers enjoy an extensive practice facility with a double-ended driving range, short-game practice area and chipping green, and a large putting green. To ensure privacy and walk-on access, resident equity golf memberships are limited to 550, plus a limited number of non-resident invitational equity golf memberships.

The formal architecture and manicured lawns of the Club at Royal Oaks Country Club evoke the tradition of the grand chateaux in the French countryside. The elegant 45,000-square-foot main clubhouse has soaring two-story ceilings on the main floor, a grand foyer, a formal yet inviting living room, an art gallery, and a board room with cutting-edge technology. The Fleur-de-Lis and Versailles rooms provide formal dining and banquet facilities, while more casual dining is available in the Bistro’s bar or lounge and on the terrace. The lower level houses the Bordeaux cellar for private dining and wine tastings. Also on this level are the men’s and ladies’ locker rooms and lounges, a professionally managed golf shop, and the golfers’ entrance.

The Sports Club and Spa offers a fitness center with constantly updated equipment and locker rooms. Also featured are lap, resort-style family and toddlers’ pools, and a children’s water park. There are six lighted tennis courts, including a stadium court, and a pro shop featuring designer tennis and athletic fashions and equipment. The Palm Grille, overlooking the golf course and pools, provides informal indoor and terrace dining and a pick-up window for hungry golfers making the turn between the 9th and 10th holes.
