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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Commented on 05/31/2017

Odd, I used to be a 5-9 handicap and now due to health issues am now 14-16 and I have yet to find a house to encroach on my game at the Oaks. Now when you consider what transformation has occurred there since the new owners have taken over I would have to highly recommend this course and I do often to others. Some tees are indeed in sad shape, and fairways are dry but look at central Florida and do some quick thinking, everything is dry and brown as we are lacking 7-9 inches of rain so far this year and all of us are dry! I know for a fact tees and bunkers are on the agenda for this year, but keep in mind it all costs money and having to redo all the greens last summer drained much of their capital. Seems to me they were voted most improved golf course last maybe many golfers don't agree with the 5-9 handicappers.


Commented on 05/17/2017

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.
