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.

The layout is nice and I’m going to give the course conditions a break because of the uneven winter that we’ve had here in the area.

However I will say that the golf carts need seatbelts in them. The cart paths are something to be desired.

This was a good layout with some decent elevation changes offering shots up and down hills.

It is a decent layout and offer different tees for levels of the golfers.

The condition of the greens were fair and the fairways were dormant. The conditions around the edges of the course and teeing areas were a bit ragged.

All in all a good deal on the price and a good course to try out.

The course is great and keeps things challenging with ungulated terrain. It’s always in good condition and plays true. I’m a zero handicap and have graviatated towards only playing courses with plush grass and smooth greens. This is one of them.

The course was wet due to big rain the day before it was still 90 degrees and seemed to be draining well. The greens were consistent and seemed well cared for. Cart paths need work.

We had a good time playing especially with weather how it is for December. We were playing a foursome and we were moving fairly quick. We did have to let 3 groups through. It took us about 4 and half hours to finish 18.

Nice course not too far from I-20 passing through Columbia SC. Afternoon round joined a couple of guys on the first tee and we were off. Played the whites and the course did not feel overly long, good mix of par fours length wise, fives were three shots and par threes were tough. Conditions on the good side, bunkers nice and I found my share of them today but tight lies around the greens for chipping but based on this time of year I can envision good tings in the summer time. Recommend and I would replay here if I get a chance.

I like this course layout. The course is normally in great shape. The greens were not cut the day I played as they were fuzzy and slow. Some greens had bare spots around the green edges but overall the greens looked nice. I would have enjoyed my round more if the greens were cut and the speed of play was faster. 5 1/2 hours is too long. This is a big reason milenials don’t play as they won’t allocate that much time to play.

Really enjoyed this course. The fairways are almost too generous, especially the landing area from the tips. However, get off the fairways and the course will punish you, especially around the greens. The greens are the defense for this course. Smaller than average and very undulating. Was difficult to read the first time through, had some odd breaks. Would like to come back and play a couple times to figure them out. Overall, rated this course high and will be back.
