Friendliest Course at the Lake

We booked a round for 4 people the week of the 4th of July. We were expecting it to be overcrowded and rushed. However, the staff was over-the-top friendly in introducing us to the course as this was our first time here.

We were able to tee off early and we were not once rushed by people behind us. Every employee that we came in contact with was so genuine and helpful.

We have found our new favorite course at the Lake!

Course was in great condition.

Little hard to find the actual club house at the resort but everything at the course was great. Staff was nice and helpful, course was in good condition, and was able to play at the pace I wanted. Would definitely play again!

Somewhat tight fairways and if you get off them, bumpy, hard pan ground rockets your ball to who knows where.

wrong course

Tan Tara said the price should have been applied to their 9 hole course and not the Oaks.

EXCELLENT 9 HOLE GOLF COURSE

When I checked in at the pro shop, the greenskeeper indicated that this is one of the top 10 9 hole courses in the country. I totally believe it. It was challenging but not overly so, and the fairways were excellent. The greens on this course were some of the most truest I have ever putted on. If you hit your put on the line intended the ball rolled true. Totally enjoyed my round even though I started out hitting the ball badly. Would have played 18, but had to get to the outlet mall. Note: they also had something different with 2 pins on each green which if I had played 18 there would have been some different shots to the green using the other pins. Another way to do that is to rotate the tee blocks so that sometimes the white are in front of the blue and visa versa.

Just Ok

Paid the taxes twice because the guy behind the counter didn't understand how the app worked.
