The John R. Williams Four-Ball Invitational Committee would like to thank Sir Nick Faldo and Leslie Anne Wade for one of the most memorable days and nights in Oak Hill’s history on Wednesday, September 16, 2015. The atmosphere for the entire day could not have been more exciting and we truly appreciate all of the efforts of Sir Nick for every bit of his participation. Oak Hill members and Williams contestants alike were able to share in what was a masterpiece helped by the gorgeous weather.
Originated over 50 years ago as “Oak Hill Scratch Best-Ball Tournament”, and played over the historic East Course from championship tees, the tournament’s four-ball format has been one of the premier events for top amateur and senior amateur players.
In 1961 the tournament was renamed for a distinguished past member of Oak Hill, Dr. John R. Williams. “The Williams” is a fitting tribute to the trees that made Oak Hill world famous. It was by his hand that many of Oak Hill’s trees were planted.
