The Oso Beach Golf & Country Club opened in 1939 with an 18-hole John Bredemus design along the Cayo de Oso watershed. The course opened to the public in 1946, and the Corpus Christi Golf Association promoted the facility with its "World Championship Four-Ball Match" featuring the golf dream team of Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, and Jimmy Demaret.
The course plays out over flat terrain, but the fairways are lined by trees and bunkers impact play throughout. Water is the main issue on the back, coming into play much more than on the front. The toughest hole is the 180-yard par 3 No. 13. Playing directly into the prevailing south wind, the tee shot over water can be intimidating.
