Other courses need to take a lead from the dedicated ground staff at Oaks National. They have been working tirelessly trying to bring this courses back to its near best all year. So clearing up after IRMA was just another day at the office for them. Well done to the owners, the staff take a lead from you both always friendly and helpful. It's a pleasure to play here.

As four senior tourists, we have been visiting this course for a very long time. It has been through very hard times in recent years, and became, even for us, unplayable. The new owners have done wonders, and have obviously spent a large sum of money. It is certainly a vast improvement. Unfortunately some of their brand new greens have been struck down with some sort of disease. They certainly didn't deserve that. It's a great course to play, due to its endless variety. No two holes the same, or even similar. If like us, regardless of your ability, you prefer to plot your way around, rather than smash it as hard as you can, I think you will enjoy it

Thank you to everybody for a very enjoyable afternoon

It is a very long course from the whites with a lot of water on the front. You need to be very accurate. There are also a large of large trees close to tee off boxes on the ninth which again, you have to be accurate. One of the holes on the front, you have to carry a large swamp around two hundred yards and land it in a very small area. Way too tough for a par four. And you can't lay up short, it is very deep and rough. Overall, the amount of water on the course wasn't the fault of the course, but the front of most greens was super wet and I usually hit in the front and like to roll up. I tried to adjust and hit the greens but the greens were hard and my ball headed over usually. I was very frustrated as an amateur but I think a seasoned player would enjoy the challenge. The check-in person was very friendly and helpful.

Last two time the course is getting better and better. Big comeback from a few years ago, glad I came back to check it out. But got stuck behind that 4 some that think they are pros, hit from the wrong tees for them and had to take 5 min before each putt before three putting each and every hole and two to three tee shots at each hole. They need a marshal out there we could have been done an hour earlier. And yes after a few holes I did go ahead and jump them. We had to lose a hole to do it. Other than really

I've always liked Oaks national and hoped it would garner enough business to remain open and stay in good shape, but it's really missed the mark lately. The course was absolutely soaked, and there's clearly no drainage anywhere. The fairways were swamps, and every bunker was a lake. The greens are very good as a result of them redoing them last year, but in order for the course to remain open and actually profitable they absolutely have to resod the entire course and become sand based. My friend and I played another course a few miles away the same day and the fairways were fantastic, so it's not just the weather. I really hope the course gets it together and turns things around. I can't possibly go back for another round unless there are massive changes done.

This course has a golfer friendly club house. It's like sitting in your living room. The food was delicious and the employees absolutely wonderful.

The fairways and greens were in very good shape. Tee boxes and cart paths could use some improvement. All in all I will return many times.

First impression walking in the clubhouse was very good, I remarked that it looked brand new, and the very friendly gentleman behind the counter said it had been refurbished. As it turns out, I think he was actually PGA golf professonial Paul Kenny. We've had a lot of rain recently, so the course was really wet, and some yahoos have made areas around greens look terrible by rolling their carts up to greens. The course was in good shape though.

This course has enough water on it to challenge your ball supply, but it's still enjoyable to play. Fairways were in decent condition, although the cut height was a bit uneven between individual mower stripes. The greens were moderate speed, and most were in very good condition, although a few had some problem areas. The traps were not raked, and were hard-packed sand, probably the biggest negative about the course condition. Not much in the way of food service for lunch, so we go off-course to eat and drink.

Paying $20 for a round of golf including your cart, we definitley got our moneys worth here. course was in an OK condition there was a few wet areas which was expected with the recent weather. Staff couldnt have been any better with us. i played with 4 other golfers were not the fastest, but those around us, staff and the locals stuck behind us were very understanding and pleasant once they got to play through us. course layout is incredible some very exctining and beautiful holes out there. cannot wait to play again.

Whilst the course has suffered from the exceptionally dry conditions, the quality of the greens is a credit to the ground staff.

The layout of the course provides a decent challenge to any golfer, and so I would recommend that you play this course, playing preferred lies, and enjoy the sunshine ! Really excellent holiday golf.

A mention also for the friendliest of welcomes in both the pro shop and the 19th hole.

Will definitely return in 2018.

Greens held and putted well. Bunkers were in bad shape, fairways and rough were bare. Snuck in a practice round before checking into the resort, did the trick but not a choice for a second round for me. Price was very low and if not for the people and the greens, it would have been a bad experience.

Good value for the money Coursehas a nice layout with challenging holes The greens are in very good condition nice true roll to them not overly fast Fairways and tee box are very sparse with grass or lack of that can be attributed to the draught conditions we are in When the rainy season starts this course will improve. I did see people working on the course so the effort is there

The new owners have transformed this course by investing in those areas that were left to rot by previous owners. By replacing greens, manicuring the rest of the course progressively. They are tending to the tee boxes next. All it needed was TLC and it now gets it with dedicated people in all departments.
