Golf at Oak Knoll is Challenging

I golf Oak Knoll frequently. It's a good course but will inflate your scoring average significantly given the length, positioning and slopes that typify most of the holes. If you don't get the ball at least 250+ yards out even on the long par-fours and in the right position for your second, your headed to at least bogeytown. Holes 4, and 6 have creek hazards that are pretty much hidden from the tee box. Course is a nine-hole layout with two sets of tee boxes that change of the experience on the second nine.

Good course but rustic relative to the manicured courses such as seen in Southern California.

Expect great variation from hole to hole with many sloped fairways and hidden creeks fronting greens. Also a great seasonal variation with lush Velcro grass in the spring and long running near hard pan fairways in the fall.

Nice course for the price.

Nice course for the price. A good walk, hilly for about half of the course. Fun to play, and get some exercise.

Good Deal for the Money

For the money ($8 pp walking rate) plus $11 pp for a cart ($38 total for two) is a reasonably good deal for this course.
Nothing extra special about the course but the online deal is worth a try. We drove in from Running Y Ranch in Klamath Falls for a days outing.

Great little course.

Only 9 holes, but challenging. Nice to walk and get a workout, but the last few holes are hilly. Excellent value for the price. Very friendly, accommodating staff.

Excellent Value

This can be a surprisingly challenging course. The greens are in excellent shape. The fairways are green and in good shape considering how hot July has been. The rough is dry and hard as it does not receive water in the summer. A great value!

good deal for the money

fun course, makes you play all your shots. does not kill you if a shot or two goes off course. Only problem was when you are making the "turn" you may have to wait until the first tee is open.

Since there was NO distinction with Oak Knoll of Independence, Or I spent $24 for not golfing in Ashland; 300 miles from my home, and then paid $54 to

play a course 35 minutes from home because I didn't have a tee time!

Rick, I am sorry that you made the mistake of booking a tee time at the wrong course, but it is difficult for me to understand how you can give a course a 1 star rating based on that fact that you have not played there.

Great place to spend some time

Even though this is a 9 hole course, there are 3 par 5s on it that make it a bit challenging. We had a great time playing the course with friends. Good walking course although they had carts available.
