Very enjoyable afternoon

We played last year and really enjoyed it so returned again this year. The greens were lovely as we remembered. There were some areas that needed attention but it didn’t stop us from having a very enjoyable afternoon. Very friendly staff especially the lady in the pro shop. We would definitely go back again

Fun, but not a repeat course due to conditions

Course layout was fun. Plenty of dogleg par 4s and challenging par 3s all of which carried over water. Greens are new andthus are in excellent condition. .Greens run average speed. Tee boxes were awful...chewed up, sandy, weedy, and uneven. Sand bunkers were as hard as pavement with less than an inch of sand before immovable earth. Fun for the price, but i won't put this on the repeat list. Young girl working inside food is nasty and rude.

Nice greens...

...they hold however there are zero ball marks left anywhere. Weird. They putt very well. Fairways are ok. Most tee boxes are ok, on number 14 par 3 you are better off finding some grass anywhere (hope you have a laser gun) and make your own hole. Nothing but sand and leaves on that tee. Needs to be completely redone. Friendly help in the club house. Played 18 in about 2:45.

Could be very good! Needs more curb appeal.

We haven't played this course for 10-15 years so couldn't remember it but after reading the reviews we decided to give it a go. Got a Hot Deal so pretty cheap but I don't think I would pay more than $30-$35 right now.

Let me start with the good, the staff were really friendly and girl in the shop was really welcoming and helpful. The course was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday but that was good for us as we got round in 3 ½ hours. The tees are not good, most are very worn out but it's not that big a deal. The fairways are pretty good, lots of grass and you always get good lies. The greens were really nice and are the redeeming factor at the course, they are pretty small but very smooth and a good pace. The biggest issue for me was the approaches and around the greens, these were very overgrown and lots of big patches of grass/weeds which is a big odd. I know there has been a few days of rain this week so maybe that's why they haven't been cut but I feel they ruin the look of the course. If these were all cut short you wouldn't even see the weeds. The course has good fairways and greens so it's very playable but around the greens is a bit hit and miss. Also around the bunkers and lakes it's a little overgrown, again with a little bit more care and attention to details this whole course good look a lot better and they could easily charge more money. It needs more curb appeal!!

I know most courses in the area are struggling but if you go to one of the high end courses like Champions Gate you don't see lots of overgrown grass and they get $50-$100 per round.

One other comment would be that they need more fairway markers to show you where to aim and where the holes go. There are lots of dog legs and it's not that clear which way you should be going when playing it for the first time.

I would definitely go back and play the course again but I feel they could really make the course good with a little more care and attention. In a tough market you need to spend your time on the right things which is making the course look presentable. They already have good greens and fairways so it won't take much!

Will absolutely play again!

Staff was superb, price was ideal! Course has an insane amount of potential to be something really special, which I believe they are working on ... greens were decent, fairways were fine, like other reviews a couple of the tee boxes were sandy but guess what - you're gonna use a tee so who cares!? Not like you're teeing off out of a bunker. Huge oak trees throughout, lots of water - some smart play needed...which I do not possess. All in all a great day, would absolutely play again!!!

Tee Boxes Need work

Great course layout. The fairways were in pretty good shape and the greens were in great shape and fast. If they could get the tee boxes in shape I could increase my rating.

Needs work

The course isn't too bad but, the greens need work. The greens have little patches that put your putt into a different direction, plus there wasn't any "curve" all putts were straight...if you didn't aim right - oh well!! There was a notice about work being done something about G12 - don't know what that meant, didn't see any work going on. It's a bad course as far as how it's set up - it's challenging - water!! Hopefully, will play again.

PS....we saw a white squirrel!!!

You met Casper (or Wendy, or one of their many cousins!) We love our wildlife here at Oaks National, from white squirrels, to gators, to bald eagles, and more! As far as the sign in the cart, that is from when we first re-opened and had new G12 greens put in. We were the second course in the WORLD to have these greens. However, with that comes the ups and downs of trying new products. We are so hoping you will come out again and join us for a round again soon.

Nice course

The overall round was really good. The only big thing that was not very good were the tee boxes that were very hard and didn't really have any grass on them. The other thing was the cart paths that also needed a lot of work. Anyone with back problems would have gone home very sore.

Terrible tee boxes. Curse lay out challenging.

Tee boxes are just so bad. The course is just soooo dry it’s like hitting from concrete. Otherwise the layout is a real challenge. Played their a few years ago and again two days ago. Won’t go back as the firm ground really affects follow through.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Tee boxes are on the agenda to be worked on this summer, so no worries there. However, I would argue to say that yes the course is a bit dry, but I would hesitate to liken it to concrete. We do hope that you will come back and play with us again and see that we aren't always as you describe.
