First time here and I loved it. Great course layout and great fairways and greens. Fast too! I will definitely be coming back. A lil pricy for me but it was worth it! Just need to get some better “craft” beer for the beverage carts!!

I have always enjoyed the layout at Oak Creek. The greens rolled true and the fairways were pretty tight. There is no rough really in this course. You can putt from off the green on many holes.

The cafe is a good place to start or finish your round. The cart girl came around twice during our round.

Nice course but pace of play was VERY poor. Need Marshal to control the pace. It took 4HR and 45 minutes to finish the round. For me anything over 4HR :20 min. is NOT enjoyable.

Always fun to play Oak Crrek. Every hole is different with greens that have lots of breaks. Nice to play a course that doesn't have any homes along the fairways; For a few hours one feels you're in the country instead of being in the middle of OC.

Greens were tour-quality. Fairways top-notch and staff was OUTSTANDING. Finally, the multi billion dollar company that owns this course is finally giving us the conditions we would expect from a Tom Fazio designed layout. Better overall layout then Pelican Hill (without the ocean of course) and certainly better value.

Played by myself and was the first one off the tee in the AM. Little wet at that time but conditions were superb. If you are going to spend a little for a round this is the place to do it.

This is my third time playing this track. First time I played it after waiting many years due to the $180 price tag on the weekends I was like...are you kidding me. They want $180 to play here on the weekends, there's nothing special about this course. Due to those feelings I didn't go back for a couple of years but when I did, I fell in love with it and wanted to join. Every hole sits all by itself, fairways are firm and fast, greens are fast, very sloped and undulating. Is it worth $180, Heck no, but is it a great track worth $110-$120 on the weekends compared to the other local So. Cal OC/LA options out there, Heck yes! The two times I played I paid, $92 on a special Sunday rate they had and earlier this week, $67 on a Wednesday twilight rate at 3 pm on GolfNow. At those rates, it's a GREAT deal. Anything under $100-$90 is well worth it. Very well maintained and I'm pretty picky.

Oak Creek is a nice course. The day I played, the course was somewhat empty, and I got a great deal. The routing keeps it interesting with elevation changes, water hazards and arroyos. Choose your tees carefully as the blues and blacks play much tougher than the whites.

The course conditions were good, with a couple of exceptions. Some places in the fairways were cut pretty close, making for tight lies on approach shots. Same goes for some areas around the greens. Also, one bunker I found was wet to the point of being muddy. On the plus side, the greens were in great shape. Also, the sand in the fairway bunkers was not a fluffy as those green side, which gives you a fighting chance.

The greens are all large and have a lot of humps and bumps. Subtle, hard to read breaks abound. I had a couple putts that I totally misread.

Oak Creek is a nice track if you can get it for a reasonable price. Staff was attentive and friendly. They have a nice grill room. Overall, this is a nice place to spend a day.
