Rating 72.8
Oak Hills Golf Club sits near the state capital but it doesn't feel like it's located in a city. It has a peaceful and picturesque setting. The golf course rolls across gentle hills studded with oaks, pines, and beautiful dogwoods. Some of the greens are rather undulating and a few are elevated as well. Most holes are framed by trees or water. There are some challenging holes but the layout doesn't present anything too intimidating for beginners. The golf course finishes with one of its most memorable holes. From the elevated tee on this par 5, golfers will get a panoramic view of nine different holes.

This course not a 40 or 30 dollar course

Never played when dry, cart paths are terrible for the price you pay... needs better maintenance all around.

CRAZY SLOW PACE- 5-6HOURS!!

Pace of play was 20-25 minutes a hole. For a round that should take 3-4 hours tops, it ended up being almost SIX sloooowww hours! Really kills your rhythm and the. you cool down and loose tour focus/swing/shot. Not fun at all. Staff didn’t/wouldn’t get out there and manage the issue after multiple groups called. At times there were 4 groups on one hole!!! Crazy. Needs to change immediately.

Amazing recovery

I was simply amazed by the improvements that were made and the conditions of the greens after a difficult recovery from damage from winter kill.

Great job, Mr. Superintendent: your knowledge and hard work is showing signs that will bring the players back. I will be back! Kurt

PS: Some money was spent on making improvements in the clubhouse as well, nice job!

Good round

Was a former member and always liked the course but while I was a member It was never in the condition it is I now. Greens and fairways are in great shape and it’s a pleasure to play. There are a wide variety of holes from hard to easy to test your game.

Great Value

We needed a place close to our lodging at Lake Wateree. It was about 45 min drive but well worth the trip. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The course layout rivals some of the clubs around Aiken and Augusta. I like value and for our $42 fee... that was certainly delivered! The new Yamaha gas carts were speedy and had USB ports! The only negative is the cart paths and some of the entrances and exits to the fairways were a bit bumpy.... not enjoyable if you have a back issue... I didn’t so not a problem!

Great Shape

Course was overall in great shape. They lost one green and there is a temporary green. They were cutting the old green and looks like it will be ready very soon. I have played this course many times and always enjoy it. Good course for the price.

Good Shape

Have played this course many times. Greens were punched a couple of weeks ago it seemed and were slower than normal. Fairways in good shape. Good course . Was very crowded today and we had several slow foursomes in front of us . Had to wait on almost every hole. Not normally that slow. Great course for the price.

Back Nine Greens were terrible

The front nine was in great condition. The back nine greens were dirt in most places. Couldn't putt a straight line. Disappointing.
