Amenities that are at the club include driving range, practice green, restaurant, banquet facility, and the lounge.

The Golf Course can be played year around with a very small annual fee plus the Green Fee the day you play. Essentially this "private" golf course can be played by everyone who makes a tee time through the pro shop. There are also many longtime "Full" members who pay monthly dues and play often.
Overall the layout shares an interesting design feature with golf courses such as Pebble Beach and the Old Course at St Andrews, once you tee off of hole 1 you only return upon the completion of the 18th hole.

Tierra Oaks Golf Club - Pictures & Descriptions
The Pro Shop at Tierra Oaks Golf Course is prominent, as you approach the building it's right in front of you, the restaurant entrance is just to the left while the cart garage is to the right.
The clubhouse from another angle. It has a Southern Georgian feel to it and was designed to have some similarities to the clubhouse at Augusta National Country Club, home of the Masters.
A great place to relax is the patio overlooking
the first tee. The same view is available just inside from the small library and bar.
The Dinning Room shown here has a great atmosphere. A terrific place for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, etc.
The practice range at Tierra is ample in size and having natural grass to hit from is a great asset that most courses in the area don't offer.
The practice putting green at Tierra Oaks is a great place to get your touch ready for the round.
Hole #1 - A great start to your round of golf with a wide fairway and a green that sets the stage for the round with its undulating surface! Flat straight puts are not to be expected at Tierra Oaks.
Hole #4 - Tee shot favors a slight fade. Trees on the right are thick and not a good place to be. A shot missed a bit to the left is ok as long as it stays in bounds.
Hole #3 - A short par 3 with the tee shot going slightly down hill. A two tired and generously sized green awaits. When the wind blows the shot is generally pushed to the left towards a pond that protects the left and back of this hole.
Hole #5 - A dogleg left, some longer hitters can may cut the corner to shorten it up. From the back tees there it is a tough hole and approximately 50 yards longer.
Hole #7 - This downhill par 3 plays 162 yards from the white tees, you must carry a seasonal creek, like on many of the holes at Tierra Oaks Golf Club.
Hole #10 - A dogleg left, this photo shows the approach shot to the green from the middle of the fairway. A very nice start to the back nine.
Hole #11 - A beautiful par 3 at Tierra Oaks, seen here looking back at the green and tee boxes in the distance. The safe shot is towards the right of this long and narrow green in order to avoid the creek just to the left of the green.
Hole #12 - This hole is rated as #2 on the course due to it being on the back nine but in real life, it is the most difficult at Tierra Oaks Golf Course. A long hole with a severe right handed dogleg to a two tired green. Aggression can be rewarded for the longer hitters by cutting the corner but severe penalties await a missed hit shot. Extreme care is needed here!!
Hole #13 - A dogleg left, this is not a difficult hole if played as designed, trying to cut the corner is a high risk shot, or just as easily a second tee shot for a lost ball. Hazards also come into play, both short and long on the tee shot.
