Oakwood was founded in 1881 in order to meet the need for children’s social activities for the 50 some Jewish families at Congregation B’nai Jehudah. Headed by Samuel Latz and several others, the Progress Club was formed. The original location was in downtown Kansas City at 11th and Main.
In 1890, the Club decided it was time to build a home of their own and did so at 1017 Washington Street using a “Chatueausque” design. The original facade has been preserved and can be seen today at the 252 YMCA Branch in downtown Kansas City.
By 1910, the residential trend was changing and the leaders of the Club sought to obtain a rural property so that the Jewish community might enjoy the new, popular game called “golf.” In 1911, the Club purchased the W.A. Rule farm southeast of town and the handsome stone house on the property was converted into a clubhouse.
Oakwood is the oldest country club in the Kansas City area that is still in existence today. Family and tradition are integral parts of our past and present. Today, building upon that foundation, Oakwood combines an unparalleled family experience with the values of service, camaraderie and elegance.
