1005 tee time with 4some walking on a Tuesday. Finished in short of 4 hrs. I played it last week and rough was US Open-like. But since they got it mowed down. Course was in great shape. Good walking course and a good challenge. You will need to be able to work the ball left and right around doglegs and some on course designed obstructions. Ball placement on several holes is critical to score well. Price was more than we usually pay but I had a free round coupon otherwise would not have paid $39 to walk. Thanks Columbia Hospitality for the inflated prices since you took over.

November golf in Washington is usually wet and soft, Veterans Day was 60* and dry. Course was in great shape for the rain we had just before. The course was punching the front nine fairways but cleaning right after. This course would be a jewel in the spring.

Enjoyed our time there,

I've now played Oakbrook several times and each time the course has gotten better. Great layout of the course, it's challenging but fair. Pace of play is great, each time I've played, 4 hours or less for a round. The greens are some of the best around, firm and fast.

Oakbrook has come back extremely well since all the trees were remove about 18 months ago. Greens and fairways that did not receive any sun for 6 months of the year now get plenty and are in great shape. Right now, the hallmark of this course are the greens. I challenge anyone to find better greens on a public course anywhere in the area. In fact, it is unlikely one will find better greens on many private courses. Management if fully aware of the need to get rid of the many stumps left behind from the tree removal and are currently working to remove what is left between now and the end of the year. If you are looking to play some of the best greens in the area head on out to Oakbrook, you will not be disappointed.

I have long known about Oakbrook, and was invited there many years ago by a member. I had know idea the course is now open to the public!! My round was fantastic as was the course! Very friendly staff, greens were the best of any course I have played this year, and the remodeled bar was a great place for us to enjoy some great food and drinks. The golf pro Jeff remembered our names from checking in before the round and talked to us after our round about our experience. Seriously thinking of joining the clubs' monthly membership program.

I played Oakbrook last week with my wife and another couple. It was fairly busy and I was shocked that we got around in 4 hours and 10 minutes. The greens were amazing. My guess is they were close to 12 on the stimp and very smooth - fun to putt.

The renovations they did 18 months ago are starting to pay nice dividends.

If you looking for a great value - I highly recommend Oakbrook golf club. Might be the best public greens I've putted in the state.

It's absolutely amazing that the crew working here has brought this course back into such great shape so fast! The greens are immaculate and fast, bunkers are a fun challenge and the fairways are really benefitting from the tree removal program. What's amazing is how with 300 trees removed, it still is a tree lined course that requires ball control or pay the price, which is what I enjoy. Good job to all involved with bringing this gem back to life! Give them a few more months and the conditions will be five stars, the same leadership did just that at McCormick Woods last year.
