This was our fourth time there , first 3 times were excellent, this last one was not we had groups of 4 cutting in front of us , our group was 2 and we play at a normal pace so there was no reason for that and at one point there was a women and her young daughter in a cart (no clubs) driving around in the fairways which held which held us up for about 10 minutes. Was not a good day

I really enjoyed playing this course. It was in great shape and the layout was challenging. My only complaint was the pro shop. Had a noon tee time, arrived at 10:30 to see if it would be possible to go off early as I had a event I needed to attend later that evening in CT. I was told that I needed to wait until noon. Between 10:30 and noon only a threesome and another foursome went off. I was not allowed to join the threesome.

I told the person in the pro shop I completely understand if the course was full and needed to wait until noon, but only 2 groups teeing off between 10:30 and noon and not allowing me to join the threesome is a little unreasonable in my eyes.

That's my only complaint.

We had a 3:22 tee time and were paired up with two very nice guys. Pace was slow, no marshals, and there were 5' somes in front of us that prevented completing the round before dark, as we had to quit after 16 holes.

Nice course, fun layout, but pace was awful!

Great golf course to play, very challenging but fair test of your game. My only criticism here is a shortage of drinking water - none on the front and one on the back. Oak Ridge is one of Agawam's gems. From the clubhouse to the 19th hole, it's a first-class experience!

I had not played this course in years. it used to be a premier course in the area. It doesn't seem lke they have a greens keeper. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were all in bad shape.

The course was in excellent condition except the rough had to many dead grass areas. The ball always settled in these areas yielding poor lies. Fairways would have been perfect without the many divots left by previous "golfers". Greens were excellent.

I played this course with the Safari Club recently. I thought the layout was interesting, and the greens were nice. My major issue with the course were the womens' tee boxes. Many were moved up from the "real tee box" and just randomly planted somewhere. It may make the course shorter for some women, but is a real disadvantage to women who want a "real" tee box. The staff in the bar area were very friendly and efficient.

Oak Ridge should be your choice. They're competitively priced and as good a value as you're going to find in the lower Pioneer Valley. If you like a well manicured and fun golf course that offeres the everyday golfer just enough challenge, then Oak Ridge should be your choice. That's probably why the Safari Club of Golf goes there every year and has done so for over a decade now ad will continue to in the future.

Played here last week with the Safari Club. Course was in very nice condition. Fairways and greens were excellent. Tee boxes were a little beat up, but still playable. Interesting layout and pace of play was excellent -- given that we had about 110 players. Would definitely play again.

And a good time was had by all. Course was in good shape. The greens were a bit slow. But hitting to them the ball would run off the back. All in all it was a good day.
