Best kept secret

I can’t believe there weren’t more people on this course. It’s in great shape (some of the back tee boxes need some nurturing) and has one of the most creative layouts you’ll play in So Cal. The price can’t be beat ($23 GolfNow Hot Deals) and I only saw two other groups all day. I hadn’t played it in a few years, but quickly remembered why I loved it so much. PLAY OAK VALLEY at any opportunity - you won’t be disappointed.

Great conditions

Fairways and greens are in great condition, especially compared to most of the courses in the inland empire. Can’t wait to get back and play again.

68

What an awesome course, thank you for the well kept masterpiece. The T-box needs a little love but the fairways, greens and over all mystic was well maintained. Shot a 68 and couldn’t ask for a better conditioned course to play. Slight wind helped keep it cool during the summer.

Thank you

Very accommodating

There was a big youth tournament preceding our tee time. Paul, the pro, adapted our time, told us we could play front nine twice if play was slow. Checked on us, really helpful and kind.

Course in Great Shape

It had been awhile since I played Oak Valley and I was very pleased with the course condition. Great fairways and the greens were great, although I bit slower than I remember.. 3 hours for a late Friday tee time can't be beat, although we did play through 2 slow groups.

Oak Valley Golf Course

That course was in nice condition. Fairly challenging and fairly high rough. Staying in the fairway was key to scoring there. Fairly deep rough to hit out of.

In great shape

It's been a while since I have seen the course in this great of shape. The rains really made the course beautiful and playable. The greens rolled true and looked really good. Will definitely continue to play here if it stays in this shape.

It is what we got.

About as good as you will get for a public course in the Inland Empire....once a jewel now somewhat less spectacular....lack of fairway over seed the last few years has left fairways with more bare spots then years past...greens still very nice some even have nice aprons around them...hope they are using some chemicals on the Bermuda Grass fairways so they will fill in and green up in the next couple months....

Good day, good course.

Friendly staff, great layout, fast & smooth greens, fairways typical and playable. They will only get better I think. Wind made it really challenging but really fair.
I enjoyed the course very much! Will be back.

Goat track not worth the drive or money!!

Tried this based on other reviews (really???!!!) and what a disappointment. There is no grass on most fairways, no marshal lead to a 5 hour round. Poor support (both water tanks empty, when I reported it after 9 found 3 guys sitting in the pro shop doing nothing!!) Had to laugh at the 90 degree rule for carts, to protect the weeds??? OK lay out with potential but someone has to bring some management and money to this or it will likely die. Played Terra Largo next day, 10 times better course and less money!!

Slow and the staff don't care

Course is not in great shape except greens are great. Pace of slow terrible and the pro shop staff just shrug and say their marshall has gone home (1pm!) Nothing to drink, restaurant/bar closed. Not returning in a hurry

This course has so much potential. The layout is wonderful, greens were excellent and every hole is surrounded by beautiful scenery. My only negative comment would be the condition of the fairways. Being from Canada I don't understand how water rights work in drought stricken California but I can see this course isn't getting its fair share (by choice or not I have no idea). If they watered and cut more this would be a stellar course. I hope they work on it. It's still worth your time and money in spite of the fairways. I will try it again next visit.

course conditions

This course could be a real gem. The layout is very interesting and scenic but the fairways and rough were in horrible shape. Greens were good but unmowed grass everywhere and holes and missing grass all over fairways.the course needs much more attention by greenskeepers. If some more money was spent on conditions it could be one of the best courses in the valley.

Incredible value at less than $50 during the weekday. I love the greens here as they’re always kept in meticulous shape and the speed is blazing quick.
