Oakridge Country Club has filed for bankruptcy. This appears to be another in the list of properties that I.R.I. has managed and let fail. They seem to want to get large sums of money for memberships and then not put the money back into property. Whether it is poor management or just a total failure to use the money to maintain properties is not really clear.
I purchased a life membership several years ago and have not seen a single improvement made to the club. Bunker drainage has not been fixed so that they have become ponds or either grass bunkers. Cart paths have not been fixed with large drop offs which make travel dangerous. The driving range has become nothing better that a "field" to hit balls in, with no yardage or targets on the range.
The irrigation system has gotten worse every year up until the pump in the well broke just prior to the filing of bankruptcy. Broken pipes and sprinkler heads led to either a swamp or a desert, and the repairs seemed to take weeks to be made.
Social gatherings were very nice when I joined, but now there does not seem to be any concern for this area of club membership. The retaraunt has received failing grades from the city health department. The swimming pool did not even open this year and was cited by the city as a health hazard. Cable television bills have not been paid. The liquor license was not renewed or was revoked.
I have not seen a single improvement in the years that I have been a member. This appears to be a ongoing problem with the properties they manage in the Dallas area. I played Los Rios Country Club which they previously managed. There was a "catfish" on the 1st tee box, and after wading through mud on most of the course that was my last time playing that course. They managed The Shores in Rockwall and the city had to take them to court to get the bunkers repaired on that course. The Shores has now filed for bankruptcy.
I.R.I. corporate management does not take care of their properties. The on-site management team seems to want to do things but can't get the money back that gets siphoned off by corporate. Beware if buying a membership from I.R.I. Golf Group.
