About Oakwood

See our 2017 Membership Information


Oakwood is a member-owned private club located near a public elementary school and nestled in a residential suburb of west Mobile. Its facilities are surrounded by beautiful trees and landscape and provide a quiet escape from the hectic pace of city life.

If you are new to Mobile, or have lived here a lifetime, Oakwood is a well-kept "secret oasis" waiting for your enjoyment. Memberships are limited to 325 families. Purchase of a Membership bond is required, plus a one time initiation fee. Following these one-time costs to join the Club, the only recurring costs are the Annual Dues – which can be paid either lump sum or on a monthly automatic bank draft system. The Club allows no alcoholic beverages on premises and is highly oriented to family recreational entertainment.

Compare our facilities, personnel, and opportunities with other clubs, and you will discover that Oakwood is the Best Recreational Value on the Gulf Coast.
