Excellent Winter Golf

Picked the perfect day for golf today. Cool; but the pace of play and course conditions (for winter) - especially the excellent greens, made for a great round. We were able to get off early finishing in under 4 hours. Thanks to the groundskeepers and the starter.

Whitney Oaks

The fairways are almost bare with the Bermuda grass dormant and the cold, wet conditions. It was still a good value.

Another Great Day

Whitney Oaks is an exceptional golf course. A Johnny Miller designed course that presents interesting challenges for golfers of all levels. Cleary it's one of the best courses in the region!

Additinally, staff is frendly and always professional.

For these brief reasons...we play here often.

The Punisher

I absolutely love this course, it is the toughest track in the area. I always allow myself a lengthy warm up at the outstanding short game practice area. Be prepared and try not to be a hero when you get into trouble here or you will be punished, often lavishly. Go to Texas..

Hard, Really Hard

Super challenging course, especially first time around. Pretty disappointed with course conditions, tee boxes and fairways were pretty reached and lots of dry dead fairways.

How Can You Do This?

Want a course in perfect condition this time of year? Whitney Oaks is it. Greens are amazing - fast and in perfect condition. Fairways wonderful to play from (wish I was on more of them). T-boxes almost all excellent. Well done, grounds crew! Keep it up. We'll be back.

Good Value and a strong test of your game

Greens in very good condition, fairways well maintained, overall good value for your dollars. Only con was the condition of the bunkers -- they needed deep tining to break up compacted sand. I guess the answer is... don't hit it the bunker!! Go play it and enjoy your round.

Fun course, was a little dry. Greens were fast. Look for the wedge in the trees near the green bunkers on 15.

It's the Extra Care & Service

Beautiful day for 18 today. Course remains in excellent shape. What made today special? 1) We were allowed to T off early. Always nice to beat the crowd and traffic. 2) I lost my cell phone between 16 and the clubhouse. Fell out of my pocket. Thankfully, someone found it, turned it in to the pro shop and the pro shop STAYED OPEN until I could get back to retrieve it. Absolutely service above and beyond. Thanks to all!
