Highly recommend this course

We played this course over the Labor day weekend. The course has many challenging holes but has many tee choices and provides fun for all levels of experience. We have played here many time over 30 years
and the course has always been in tip top shape.

The oaks

Just played a round and 1/2 at the oaks while visiting the lakes of the ozarks . The course was in great shape . The greens good size and the fairways where set up so that it was easy to follow the routing . The elevation changes where awesome. This is an outstanding piece of property and I will be back !! Highly recommend this course !

Beautiful Course

On a Hot Late June day the course was in immaculate condition and a little breeze made it very comfortable.

I played this course in April and it was 41 degrees, I wanted to give it a second chance and I am so happy I did. The course is in the tip top shape, from greens to fairways, not a complaint at all. Thank you to the staff as well, they are super friendly

The Oaks at Margaritaville

Fairways and Greens were in very good shape. Some tee boxes were patchy but overall good. Was surprised they didn’t put a sand bottle on my cart. Felt guilty I didn’t have the ability to fix a few divots. Did however repair my ball mark and 1 other on all the greens. Wish I had a hole by hole guide as some holes require precise placement, playing to 1 side or laying up off the tee. My first time playing it kicked my butt from the white tees but could definitely shave off 5-7 strokes next time I play.

Great shape

The course was in really nice condition especially with all the rain we’ve had. Greens are very quick but still very receptive. Great overall course

Challenging but fair

Layout of fun to play with scenic views. The course was in great shape. Big firm greens to hit into and roll very true. The only complaint is that I had an uneven lie for every shot but that’s what made it challenging. There are not too many blind tee shots which I love. Everything is out in front of you.

Fun but demanding course

Beautiful course that’s fun to play. Was in great shape even after all the recent rains, greens were fast and true. Not too many level lies that makes it interesting. Thought it’d be packed on a beautiful day, but we got there an hour early and went straight to the first tee, didn’t see anyone till 16. Not always the case. Worth an occasional hour and half drive to play.
