Have played this course over 1,000 times, I live here. Pretty course, scenic views of the Sonoma valley. This is the heart of wine country. Course conditions can be good, rarely great. Various types of grass on the fairways, even some crab grass. Some bare hard pan spots. Lots of heritage oak trees. Some even in the middle of the fairways. Cart paths are beat up, lots of rough patches and some potholes. Think of Oakmont as a classy municipal course minus the slow play and muni hooligans. On a quiet day I've played this course in 3 hours, walking. Nice employees in pro shop & restaurant. Restaurant food is acceptable, not gourmet. Prices are reasonable. Rack rate green fees are reasonable enough, especially during the week, but for super deals use GolfNow for amazing discounts. Often 50% lower than the golf shop rate.

I am a new member at Oakmont, but played this round with a group. The pace was slow as molasses. 5.5 hour round. Golf staff was not knowledgeable and didn't seem to really want to be there or maybe it was more of having customers was inconvenience for the head pro who was behind the desk. There are many other courses that will WELCOME you to their course and appreciate your business. Unfortunately, Oakmont is not one of them. The course is the only reason to make the trek. It is a good layout that will make anyone work for a good score. The bar is reasonable but they cannot accommodate food allergies, so if you are like me, plan on eating elsewhere.

Oakmont West is a good challenge for anyone. Course was in good shape even though some renovations are under way. Tough par 4s even one particular par 3! I've been here many times and always have friendly interactions with the staff but on this occasion the guys in my group did not. I booked through golf now and was happy with my rate, the others weren't happy at all. Seems that they were told one price over the phone and were charged another when our group grew from 4 to 8. Not sure why Oakmont did that but it really upset the rest of the group.

Oakmont has one of the more picturesque mountain settings around with views on both sides of the Sonoma Valley. Conditions were perfect and the greens were rolling truer than I can remember. We played in 4 hours which was terrific. Great value.

I always enjoy playing out here. Played out here many times. The course is usually in pretty good shape and greens are usually pretty good and fast, although this last round they were a little slow which was a surprise. Pace of play is pretty normal depending on the time you get out. I've always enjoyed the views of the hills and mountains with the deer that kinda walk around like they get along with humans. The shape of the course is usually good. Doesn't drain all that well in the winter so just be aware that if you get out in the winter it may be a little wet but still totally playable. Overall I would recommend the course. The snack bar and restaurant/bar are great.

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.
