Course reopened last year apparently with new ownership. Seemed like it was headed in the right direction. Have played there on and off for decades and it’s had it’s niche at time that’s made it a decent option. But, it’s taken a step backwards for sure again. Course conditions are notoriously wet early and dry (hard pan) late in the season. The course has been around forever and if you’re an area golfer your aware of it and know it is what it is. When it’s been managed well that’s been minimized by good upkeep, a pretty good clubhouse, and more modest greens fees. Lost a ball in the fairway. Was constantly clubbing down to dig balls out of overgrown fairway grass. Basically there was little reward for keeping the ball in the middle. Not to mention the time and frustration looking for a ball in the middle of the fairway! The clubhouse was closed on Sundays. The GolfNow price with convenience charge is a “Luke warm” deal at best instead of hot deal. Probably won’t go back. At least anytime soon.
Great parkland course - classic design elements.
Standard rate is a little high, but had a great time. A few tee boxes not mowed, and greens a little bumpy in places. But overall nothing too egregious.
Priced Fair for the Course
The greens are not in the best condition. But it is a fair course. If you are a golf snob, it's not for you. If you are a weekend warrior it's a nice course.
Won't play it again
Fairways were mostly brown, and hard-pan. Small greens that were inconsistent: some were overwatered, others had brown patches, with cracks in the soil. Most of the greens had scattered patches of brown grass, and some bumps in the turf. The sand traps, however, had decent sand and plenty of it. And the course was fairly forgiving and open. We booked a "hot deal" price of $13 for 18, and got what we paid for.
Course is outstanding the best I've seen in a long time
The course and staff were good. I think the regular price would have been too much if we didn't have a good rate from "Golf Now" for $10
Waste of my time.
This course has been declining over the years. But is the worst I' ve seen it. Fairways are bumping,greens are terrible. The course needs a complete over-haul.
I got to the course a little early. The course was relatively empty, so I asked if I could tee off early. The person at the desk would not let me tee off earlier than the reserved tee time because he wanted me to tee off with a couple other people who booked through GolfNow.
The other two ended not showing up on time, so he finally let me tee off. Unfortunately, they treat people who reserve through GolfNow differently because they are not paying full price.
Although its pretty short, the greens are setup smaller and hilly. The greens were in excellent conditions so it's worth the time.
Open layout so you get away with a few shorts here and there and there are a few tight holes.
Great Day for a walk!
Oak Knoll is an older course that is currently bank owned and up for sale. The course is in need of some loving care - fairways were mowed but full of ruts on the back nine. The rough were extremely tall (much of it over 12") and was impossible to find errant balls. The greens were mowed and trimmed well - but needed to me rolled to smooth them out some. Lots of unrepaired ball marks on most of the small greens. I played this course many years ago when it was a jewel - it could be again with some care.
I have played this course before and considering the rough winter we just had the course was in good shape
Good for a middle of the road golfer
Greens and fairways are in good shape. some trees were cut down and left on the course causing hazards. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed the experience. I have golfed oak knoll for 20 years I would say it's in good shape right now and I like the direction it's going in.
Our expectations kept getting lowered hole by hole as we kept seeing poorly kept grounds. Large areas of brown non bagged grass clippings were both unsightly and a hassle to find balls. Greens were struggling. Fairways were lined with wheel ruts from heavy machinery driving on soggy grounds. Overall, needs a new grounds keeper or investment to keep it nicer.
This course was in terrible shape.
The course was very poorly maintained. Grass was so high I lost 2 balls in the middle of fairways. The course needs a lot of work. Very poor value for the price.
