Wet weather

Not too bad

First thing I will say is that this is the easiest course to walk in the area. Tee's are close to the greens and its relatively flat throughout. I may tend to play here more just because of that. Hardly any bad lies in the fairways, but the layout is pretty bland with the exception of a few holes. The greens are terribly slow and grainy. Could use a good verticut.

However, if you're just looking to get some practice in the value is good. They have a nice inexpensive range and the walking rates are a good value. You do have to pay to get on state park grounds, but if you save your receipt you won't have to pay the next time.

Very enjoyable

I enjoy walking this course. I usually arrive and practice for about an hour. It has a excellent driving range. You can get 15 balls for $1.00 from the machine. The putting and chipping greens are good. The practice sand trap is always clean.

The food is good. Especially the hamburger! The staff is friendly. They recently got a few new carts if you want to ride.

Second time playing this course. Greens need some TLC; some had bald patches. Several holes had tire tracks where it looked like some people went “mudding” . Will definitely be back later in the season.

Great value

Great place to play for the average golfer. The weather is a little too wet to really enjoy this course right now. When the weather gets better this is an excellent course and an excellent value/

Great course for the price

Oak Mountain is always a fun course to play. In the middle of a state park it is pretty scenic. The course is always kept nice and for the most part the greens are nice too. Just inconsistent speeds. My only issue is the driving range. It is aweful.. not a good lie on the whole thing. But compared to other courses in that price range Oak Mountain is well worth the trip.

Fun Course, Great Value!

I was paired up with a couple of people since I booked through GolfNow, but that was fine. Relatively flat course, pretty challenging! My only complaint was the greens had leaves all over them, but that’s what I get for playing golf in November.

Economical Round

Course was in good shape. Greens were a little bumpy and very slow compared to most local courses I play.

Fun & Challenging

The Course is fun & challenging to play. The greens are slow and need some work. The pace can be slow at time. Overall it's a 7.5 out of ten!

state park ok

beautiful setting. course had had a lot of rain so cart path only, for good cause.

Negative: club rental more than greens fees and we got INCOMPLETE club sets. Lucky they didn't want to charge us for the missing clubs when we returned them!
