Overpriced, but fun track

This is a fun and somewhat challenging track, but not worth the play at normal rates. I played because I had a golfpass voucher, which made it a fantastic deal. If I could get a discounted deal, would play again.

Weekend Round

I’ve lived in OC only for short time, but the best course I’ve played in OC. The course was in great shape, golf carts top notch, and the staff is the best I’ve experienced in a very long time. If you haven’t played Oak Creek you’re missing out.

Amazing Course

Played this course again after about a year off. The overall experience was great. The outside services team was great. They welcomed me and sent me home very nicely. The fairways and greens were in great shape. The greens were much faster than my last round. Pace of play was good at just around 4.5 hours. My only criticism was the price of range balls is high at $9 for a small bucket and the tee boxes were very uneven at times.

Enjoyed!

Though greens are recovering from aeration, they weren't bad to putt on and still maintained their speed

Wow, Oak Creek has gone downhill

I try not write about the conditions of the course because there are many seasons and course maintenance throughout the year, but this review is an exception. Oak Creek's facilities and staff are amazing, but the course needs to be closed and refurbished. SInce the Irvine Company owns the property, they need to close the course and complete some major repairs. If you want to charge $100 - $200 per round, the conditions need to be really good.

Now for the specifics:

1) There are tree roots coming out of the ground that stretch 50-100 feet from the trees and have made several tee boxes very uneven. The roots are also growing into the fairways,

2) The grass between the barranca and the fairways are mostly uneven from really bad drainage. I play a lot of courses in Southern CA and Oak Creek has become similar to Green River and El Prado in that you can't drive the cart at full speed because of the bumps. I would caution walkers because you could twist an ankle almost anywhere. I would not complain unless it was pervasive.

3) The greens were OK. They are trying to maintain them, but 4 were recently punched and sanded. It would have been nice to know that beforehand.

Colorado Golfer Had a Great Time

Had lunch prior to our round, great service , good food. Clubhouse staff treated us like regulars, made us feel like we were on our home course! Hit a small bucket on the range, nice facility, well run. Played the back nine at twilight, Mike got us off early, very polite. Grounds crew are paying attention, tee box to greens. Fairways are wider than I expected, greens are fast , the ball rolls true. We were warned about a couple of greens that had been punched and sanded...no worries we've played sanded greens before! Sand traps looked good, only found one, easy out. Come play here, you'll be glad you did.

Downgrade - Poor conditions

Played this course last year = No drought here! Very Lush - great conditions! Now - maybe they received a BIG fine, whatever, course conditions now our Poor/average at best. Gopher holes, dry, poorly managed, etc. Greens were fast though. Driving range - POOR! Tip to course - change the location of where you can hit from more frequently, I (and others) were hitting off of dirt! Range balls way too expensive!!! Never saw a Marshall during 5 hour round! Other players we encountered were rich snobs! Better to play somewhere else until changes are made - fairly well greatly over-priced based upon todays conditions.

Great Condition

The course was overall in great shape. The greens rolled very true and fast. The fairways were in great shape and rolled out for longer than usual drives. My only disappointment was the uneven tees and the aggressive price of $9/small bag of range balls. The staff was very friendly and welcoming especially Mike the starter whom tried his best to get me out early. Pace of play was okay at 4:30 for a Monday afternoon. Par 3's are very challenging and some great holes to run up your score.

Amazing course

First time and wont be the last. Staff was friendly, course from the tee box to the fairway to the greens was in great shape. So far my favorite in OC and much better than strawberry farms hands down.

Great value on Christmas Day

68.00 on Christmas Day very fair......
But definitely not worth $135.00 other days. $80.00 seems like a good price
