River Oaks in a residential community located within the 610 Loop and nestled between Downtown and Uptown. Established during the 1920s, the neighborhood spans 1,100 acres. It was developed by two brothers, Michael and William Hogg, sons of former Texas Governor Jim Hogg, and became a national model for future community planning projects. River Oaks boasts some of those most luxurious homes in the city of Houston and is home to the prestigious River Oaks Country Club, featuring a golf course designed by famed architect Donald Ross. The course was redesigned in 2015 by Tom Fazio. As a part of the brothers' development plans, they ensured that River Oaks had esplanades and parks with planted flower, azaleas, shrubs, and oak trees. It was their mission to develop a community with a fully established, well-integrated design. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, River Oaks was publicized in design journals, real estate media, and national newspapers as being a "distinguished experiment in fine living."
