With New Year’s resolutions come New Year’s renovations! River Oaks received the green light earlier this month to undergo some extensive refurbishing and decorating. In truth, the River Oaks Club House and Event Center is over 20 years old and is overdue for a more contemporary makeover. This past month, what started as an idea of freshening the walls with a few coats of paint has ultimately led to a complete redecorating of our bar and event center.

In our banquet room, we have updated our color pallet by freshening the walls with paint. In addition to the paint, we have updated the walls with picture frame molding for a more polished look. Not only does the picture frame molding give the room more texture and depth, but it also makes the room look taller. Furthermore, we have done a complete overhaul on the lighting by adding hanging crystal chandeliers to offer our guests a more elegant experience. The ambient light they provide provides the space with a much more decorative and relaxing feel.

We didn’t stop at the banquet room. We have also redecorated our bar and grill with a fun and exciting new look. New cabinets and a new countertop were installed in our dining area for more storage and utilize the existing space. Like the banquet room, the bar was also coated in fresh paint with a new color! Come check it out for yourself.

There are even new additions planned for when the golf season starts. Come springtime, our outdoor patio area will highlight the addition of comfy new patio furniture for a more comfortable and relaxing time while you take in the beautiful views of our golf course. Stop in and check out the patio this spring and you will find some other exciting features.

Going beyond the patio, our grounds crew will also be working on the addition of a new bocce ball court as soon as the ground thaws. If you didn’t get the opportunity last year to try our bocce ball court, this season will offer even more space and opportunity for the sport.

A lot is going on here, but stayed tuned for future renovations because we are not stopping here! We have plenty of other ideas moving down the pipeline on ways to make improve our already beautiful course into something even better.

Santa Brunch - River Oaks Golf Course - Cottage Grove


For those that have not heard yet, Santa Claus will be coming to town early again this year! River Oaks wrote to the Jolly Red Man asking if he could take some time from his busy schedule to come out to our community and join us for brunch this December 8th. And would you believe it? He said yes!

This December 8th River Oaks would like to extend an invite to you and your family to join us and Santa at our Event Center for a wonderfully delicious breakfast buffet. Not only will there be breakfast, but there will be gifts, games, s’ mores and decoration. You can even catch a ride on our horse-drawn sleigh and even have the opportunity to meet and get your picture taken with the Jolly Red Man.

Believe it or not, it’s no surprise that Santa accepted our invite because O’l Kris Kringle has been joining us for brunch every December since the opening of the River Oaks Club House in 2000. That’s almost 20 years in a row that Santa has accepted our invitation to brunch and we always make sure to serve some of his favorite foods.

There will be a buffet line full of the hearty breakfast classics that Santa loves so much. We will be serving an assortment of food including fresh fruit, french toast, and danishes followed by bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage links, and breakfast potatoes.

After brunch, everyone will have the opportunity to meet Santa. You will get the chance to introduce yourself, sit on his lap, get your photo taken with Santa, and of course let him know what it is you want for Christmas. You can even ask Santa that question you have always been wanting to ask him!

After you spend some time with Santa, make sure you wander outside to hear the sleighbells jingling and catch a ride on our horse-drawn sleigh. Santa won’t be the one taking you for a ride, but we will take you on a beautiful stroll through the snow around our driving range.

The cool wind brushing up against your cheeks from the sleigh ride might chill your bones, but don’t worry! After the sleigh ride, come warm up around the bonfire and roast your very own s’ mores. Sinking your teeth into a toasty golden roasted marshmallow is one of the quickest and sure-fire ways to warm you up. There will also be some gift-giving! Every child will walk out with a small gift courtesy of us.

River Oaks extends its invite to those of all ages because Santa Brunch is an event full of wonderful holiday fun for the entire family. More importantly, make this holiday season special for the kids. Bring your sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, or your grandsons and granddaughters and make their holiday magical by giving them the chance to give Santa their Christmas wish.

We hope to see you this December 8th from 8 am to 1 pm at River Oaks! Call us at (651)438-2121 (ext. #2) to learn more about Santa Brunch or to make your reservation today!
