Oak Quarry owes its unique settings to a long history of mining for marble in the Jensen Quarry, which in its operating heyday supplied limestone, marble and 88 various minerals for the construction of roads, large buildings and private residences in the greater Los Angeles area. During World War I, Jensen Quarry was a major source of marble located only in this area of the Inland Empire. It was abandoned in 1979.
Twenty-two years later, Dr. Gil Morgan and Schmidt-Curley Design laid out one of California’s most incredible golf courses.

GOLF Magazine included Oak Quarry on its 2021 Ranking of the Top 100 public access golf courses, with the following description:
"Built on the remnants of a dormant rock quarry, this hard-edged beauty seizes on the drama of its surroundings. Sheer walls of white stone serve as backdrop throughout the course, which moves through sizable shifts in elevation. Since no homes encroach, there is nothing to impede the vistas, and little to distract from one of the most striking manmade settings in the game. The par-3 14th hole leaves an especially strong impression. It plays from nosebleed tees over a deep pond to a green framed by a towering quarry wall."
