Nice golf course, it hasn't recovered from the wet winter. It looks as if they haven't been able to mow.

Nice course. It was very shaggy, fairways and greens needed mowing but they looked too wet to mow effectively. Nice layout with mature trees.

Considering the rain we'd had, the course was in pretty good condition, although some of my shots still plugged on the fairway and in the rough. Lost 3 balls in places I wouldn't have expected to.

The tee boxes and greens were excellent.

Because of the time of year there were few leaves on the trees - it meant you could try going through as opposed to round them! In the summer it will all be about ball positioning.

A little slow at times but not too bad.

My G/F and I chose this as our first round of golf in CA. Wish they would have been closed and not allowing play that day. They were cart path only, but in my opinion, it wasn't enough, The course was beyond saturated. To state that the course was wet, would be a understatement. In their defense they did get over 7 in of rain prior to our arrival. But, we lost over 16 balls in 18 holes with fairway shots or just off of the fairway. The ground swallowed many good shots with no traces of same. There definitely should have been a cheaper rate for this course in its current conditions. i would play it again, but during better conditions

I play here often and like this course. However there needs to be some code that indicates cart path only when booking. I am a senior with knee replacements and was advised of the cart restriction only upon arrival. Consequently played only seven holes.

This was my first time here. I drove over an hour to come play this course. I get their e-mails all the time, and it looks amazing. Well, it is AMAZING! The design is great, the greens were perfect! (Rolled true) The tee boxes were awesome, whole course was like a golf course should be.

I feel this isn't a true testimony to the overall course, but this happened... The front nine took about 2 hours 20 min... okay thats fine. We make the turn and their are 3 carts on the 10th tee box. I am now watching a 6-some tee off. Yes, 6. So I wait, and wait, and wait, and finally tee off. Then I get up to my ball, and wait, and wait, and wait some more for the group of 6 to clear the green. I look over to the 11th tee box, and there is a FIVE-some there. So we have 2 groups of golfers, with 11 golfers total. I look to the 12th hole, no one. I look to the 13th hole, that group is clearing the green. These two large groups are now 2 entire holes behind, and NO MARSHAL IN SITE! I couldn't believe it. We jumped ahead two holes because honestly, that is just not acceptable. We saw the marshall 3 times on the front 9 and assumed they were making sure to keep the pace. After we skip the slowdown, we catch up with the next group, just to find out that there is no one within 2 holes infant of them. I just could not believe it.

The course was great, like I mentioned above, it was just what you wanted out of a golf course in terms of layouts and greens. But, the fact that the staff could not maintain a decent pace of play here, really bummed me out. I hear that normally it has a GREAT pace, I guess i caught the course on an off day. Bummer...

Side note: Golf advisor thinks I'm a female. I am a male BTW.

I have played here many times and, in general, really enjoy the course. The one drawback is that more times than not, the rough does not get cut regularly and balls get lost, even if you know where they landed. Over-watering leaves some spots very mushy as well and the combination of those 2 things can make it tough if you venture off the fairway. However, the greens were in very nice condition, albeit faster than most courses in the area.

Can't complain too much for the price, though. Pace of play was very slow on the front nine but, picked up on the back.

Tee to green, this course is easy. Interesting, but easy. The greens are something else. Like many Donald Ross greens, the usable portion of the surface is often less than 70% of the total area, with false fronts and false sides on nearly every hole. Better be able to chip.

My buddies and I have played this course for over 30 years. It was very nice for a long time, then went into a terrible downward spiral. Greens were bad, turf was bad, employees were bad... just not good. A couple years ago they started improving the course and it has gotten to a point where the course is in good to great condition for a public course. Some days the pace of play can lag, but on this day that we played, our foursome played in under 4 hours!

Oakmont is a great course for the value. The driving range is small with low flight balls. The course is not very long, but still makes golfers of all skill levels to make some shots. The greens are in great shape but are very undulating with maybe some unfair hole placements. Although the course winds through a neighborhood, it is pretty wide open. On a side note, they have forward tees that would be very kid friendly.
