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.

Course is improving all the time all new 18 greens are fantastic best I've played around here. Tee boxes still need work but it does not detract from the rest of the course nice layout plenty of challenges. Club house is great prices are good and staff very friendly. I have played 3 times this 2 week visit and will definitely play again next holiday.

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.

I enjoyed course very much, the greens are excellent and fairways are a little brown-we are in a draught here. The only negative to me is the tee boxes could be better but overall course is much improved in last couple of years.

I couldn't recommend this course to any serious golfer. The tees are atrocious, the fairways bare and bouncy, the bunkers lacking sand. Houses encroach on your game, with the result that your drive will easily bound OB. Some of the holes are ridiculously narrow.

The greens are very good and the staff friendly.

Cheap as it is, I won't waste my money again.

The staff are working hard to get the course up to standard but lack of rain doesn't help. Totally disagree withe the narrow fairways and the houses are not an issue especially to someone​ with a 5-9 handicap. Give them a chance the old owners ran course into the ground. New owners and staff working hard to make what will be one of the best courses around.

1st time played here, found it by accident on the internet. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Course is very interesting and presents several challenges to players of all levels. Greens are in great condition, fairways pretty good too. Tees boxes a little bare in places but that didn't spoil the game in any way. Bunkers could probably do with some more sand - if you stay out of them its not a problem!

Will definitely return here again in the future.

The greens are outstanding at Oaks Natuonal along with the staff. The only negative is the tee boxes, most have no grass and those with grass aren't level. Once you get past the tees you're in for a treat, the layout is very good. Work is being done on the tee boxes, just not there yet. Well worth the Golf Now price.

Played on Easter Sunday. Pace was great because few people on the course. Greens were fair at best. Teeing grounds were terrible, mostly dirt without grass. Fairways were hard and dry. Would have been better off staying home.

We had a great time. I went out with my best friend and my two god children and it was their first time golfing. The starter and rangers took that into consideration and we let other players play through. The course is a great layout and its obvious to tell that the new ownership is putting money into the course. Greens are fast but beautiful, some tee boxes are like hitting from a dirt pile and the sand traps are rock hard, hardly need to rake them after the stroke. We will be back soon as this is close to my work and great to play before I have to work.

Although I wish they were much faster, the greens are 200% better than they were when we stopped playing Kiss Oaks 4 years ago and they generally roll ok. There is still work needed on the rest of the course (fairways, bunkers and tee-offs). I was encouraged to re-try this course based on the efforts by the new owner to improve all aspects of Oaks National. He is on the right track! The lay-out is nice with holes of various difficulties (wide open(#1) or very thight (#11). A thunderstorm was approaching when we played (we had to stop after #15) so the strong winds made a few par #3 quite challenging, over water, from back-tees. At that price ($21 with GN including fees), it's well worth the detour!
