Oak Shadows

Course was in great shape. Greens were in excellent condition. Speed was good, not too fast.
Nice layout with elevation change. Enough water to make it keep it interesting but not too challenging.

Don't play at Oak Shadows!!!!!

I swore, TWICE, that I would never return to Oak Shadows because of SLOW PLAY, THE ALLOWANCE OF 5-SOMES and SELLING TEE-TIMES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO GOLF OUTINGS.

But, I returned again and it was "same old, same old".

Our 1:24 tee-time was behind a large golf scramble. It took 1 hour to play the first 3 holes. You do the math.

We will NEVER, EVER return to Oak Shadows!

Whoever owns that course should be ashamed..

Awesome course!

Oak Shadows has it all - challenging layout with well kept fairways and pristine greens, with just the right amount of slope. I like to play a variety of courses, but Oak Shadows is my favorite in eastern Ohio.

Nice course

Given all the rain we have had this course was in excellent shape. Pace was just under 4:15 for a 4some, not too bad. Some bunkers were better than others, but given the weather we have had it was amazing that some of them were in excellent shape. We will play there again.
The helper at the desk was very nice as well.

Always a great experience

We drive over an hour to play this course, because it’s always a pleasant round. Great
layout, many unique holes. No back and forth
here. Greens consistently good. Ample water
and sand, challenging but fair. Staff always
friendly. Good value for your money.

First Time Playing

Hidden gem!

I’ve lived within an hour of this course almost my entire life, and yet I had never heard of it until recently. You can imagine my surprise when I showed up and saw this place. The course is fantastic! It has tremendous views and forces the player to utilize a variety of shots. We played from the gold tees, which plays about 7000 yards, and it really challenged us on a few holes. Do yourself a favor and play this course if you haven’t before. I’ll definitely be making another visit in the future!

Pace of play

Oak Shadows is a great public course, but they have a giant pace of play problem. Badly need a ranger to keep people moving. Had 7:48 tee time today. At 7:40 there were 2 4-somes on the tee box and the 4-some ahead was already on the green. Last Sunday had an afternoon tee time, left after 6 holes because there were 2 groups backed up on every hole. Embarrassing. Fix it!

Variations

Oak Shadows is a Fine Golf Course. It has man elevation changes throughout the course. A very few holes are easy. The majority have to be well thought out.

One of my favorite local courses

Great layout with fast smooth greens, decent fairways and a lot of water hazards makes for a really good round of golf.

Super fun

Played here several times. Always been in great condition except for a few inconsiderate people that don't repair their ball marks on the greens. Every holes is a different adventure and fun for the "pros" and hackers. We play here 2 -3 times a year and hope to continue doing so.

This is a great course that has some of everything.

This is a great course that has some of everything. I found the course to be in good shape, especially the fairways. Also, it is good to see some sand still on the course as many courses are eliminating all sandtraps.
