We have had a ton of rain out here lately. I just went out too soon. Sixty percent of my balls plugged and I only found about half of those. This is a good course and fun to play if you like to hit a drive and end up needing a pitch to place it on the green in 2.

Oakmont East is a friendly course with some difficulty added. It was built in an older sub division so you must hit straight or be in trouble. Fun course to play on

Not only did we get a great price on the green fees, we were treated with warmth and professional courtesy from beginning to end.

Course was in great condition and pace of play was smooth.

We played on a weekday around noon. The course was not crowded and we got around in about 3 hours. Love the layout. Short par 4s and long par 3s. The greens are rather small and challenging. The traps could use a bit more sand. All in all, a wonderful place to play.

Other than getting stuck behind an octogenarian foursome, that seemed to think that they owned the course, on the front nine, (2 hours) we sped thru the back nine in less than an hour. We were warned that there was a group of "Forty-Niners" on the course, little did we realize that they were 1849ers!

Fourth hole, a par 3 took a half an hour backing up the two groups behind is while the group in front is us searched for balls!

Where's the Marshall?

My friend and I played on Monday, President's Holiday, so was a little slow, but otherwise had a great time. Course is in good shape, but sand bunkers could use some work. Staff were always friendly, and though we played the East course, the snack bar makes a killer golf burger...5 stars for that

The best executive course in the Bay area. Starting to push the price a bit to high for par 3/ par 4 golf course though. For anyone who wants to play 18 in 3 to 4 hours max - this course is for you!

As an executive course, this is a mix of very manageable par 4's and very difficult par 3's. Most of the par 4's are a short iron or wedge in for your second shot and about half of the par 3's require a driver off the tee.

There's lots of variety between the holes; this isn't some out-and-back track. There's plenty of water, trees and elevation changes to keep you on your toes.

The greens are in good shape, running fast and true. The bunkers are about average for a public course and most times you're better off trying to wedge the ball out rather than splash the rather compacted sand.

Players on this course are always friendly. Most are locals who play the course regularly which makes for a pretty good day.

The west course has tee times for 37 with cart and the east has 18 for 40 with cart and NO PAR 5's. Every time a friend and I go into the east clubhouse to pay for a golf now tee time we get questioned. Sat we played for 37 each with a cart from golf now and he said wow I need to talk to them and looked it up etc.. The same thing happened the weekend before same price same guy. Don't get me wrong all in all the people are friendly but.. ..

Hole closure and playing both par 3 and par 4 from the next tee just does not work. Waited almost 45 minutes on the tee - 4 groups backed up in front of us.

The carts at Oakmont all seem to have GPS / Distance to hole problems. Using our laser range finders as a gauge - the inaccuracy displayed on the cart monitor has been consistently off by as much as 20 yards. We have measured this discrepacy on multiple days and found substantial errors with carts on both courses. There is no aid given by providing incorrect information. This prolem needs a fix.
