Nice layout, most holes are through the trees but not super tight. Driving range is nice and practice putting green were fine.

Course was in great shape with a variety of holes.

Oak Marsh was great today. The grass is still domant, but the greens were stil great. The entire staff is friendly and the starters are great. Oak Marsh is a great course. Is challenging, however totally worth playing if are in the area.

First time playing here. Entrance not marked well and neither is bag drop. Very confusing. No one at bag drop on a busy Friday? Had to unload my own bag.

Grumpy starter wearing COWBOY BOOTS? Didn't offer up much help. Dress code very lax here although I did see the Pro Shop make a guy buy a collared shirt when he walked in expecting to play in a neon green tee shirt, cargo pants and hiking boots.

First 5 holes are tight(and boring) and backups ensued. By 5th tee we had 5 or 6 carts stacked up and waited on every shot.

As for the course.. The front 9 is basically a tight muni with extremely small greens. #9 is a solid par 5 out on the marsh. The back 9 is superior to the front by a long shot. 5 of the 9 holes play into or along the marsh with #18 being a great risk-reward finish for long hitters. Conditions were nice tee to green with the green speed being fast but not too fast.

Would play here again but really not fond of the terrible pace on the front 9. Seems like holes 2-5 were shoehorned into a tight spot and it makes for a rough way to start a round.

Oak Marsh has a handful of holes with at least a marsh view and a couple that run along the marsh that are very picturesque however most of the holes are simply bordered by back yards. I will say the Spanish moss covered live oaks are stunning, though. I found club selection very difficult as the greens overall are small and the hitting areas at times tiny. Local knowledge would be a big help; so much so I would forgo playing unless I knew I was going to play the course more than once.

Where's the course rangers? Never saw one. Had a twosome, that only played 9 thank goodness, but they were hitting two and three balls. Somehow a single snuck in when they finished and he had us backed up 5 groups. Called the clubhouse who did nothing, absolutely no one cared. Ridiculous, to say the least.

Saw a ranger once who did nothing. Had a twosome of very old golfers who were hitting 2-3 balls and. Oils have cared less about the 4 groups stacked up. Rhonda them. They quit after 9 and somehow a single snuck in there who played slower than a group of 4. People in back of us called the clubhouse and they did nothing. On several holes there were 4 to 5 groups backed up, it was a joke. The one couple from Charlotte quit.

Would I recommend this course to a friend? NO . Not unless they put some rangers on the course and keep people moving. Nice. course, bad management.

Course was well maintained, by evidence of many maintenance workers. Greens and bunkers were above average and fairways were okay for this time of year. Paid $40 on golf now...which was better yet since the course is 2 miles from where we stayed.
