Good value for the money

Some people might think this course is relatively easy but you still have to go out and do it. We played from the blues and it was a challenge. Mercer Oaks is friendly and relatively easy to do business with. There's no attitude like you find at some courses. Just straightforward, enjoy the sport.

One of the best county courses in the state

I have played this course many times but the east is my favor the west is very nice but to ease is a links course. Played this course yesterday it was an excellent shape from Teebox to greens. Superintend it and grounds crew should get a big raise for keeping this course in such good shape with all the rain. I recommend this course to all types of golfers to play this course because of the different tea boxes. Make sure you practice on the greens before going out they are super fast but trail

Super troopers

So I’ve played this course at least 15 times this year, great layout, really nice greens and for the most part tee boxes have been good. Staff in the pro shop are super friendly especially the lady who’s always extra polite.

About few months ago I played right after it had rain, I was told it’s 90• cart rule. I was on the 18th hole 100 yards to the green, I pulled my cart 10 feet off the cart path close to my ball on the rough. A ranger who had been sitting by the cart return area drove to me and told me to get off the rough because it’s cart path only. At first I was puzzled why the ranger showed up 100 yards from the green on the 18th hole and why was he not told that it was 90• cart rule. I told him that I am going to the pro shop to complain, he then told me oh maybe it is 90• and I shouldn’t worry about going into the pro shop. I let it slide and didn’t complain about it. Few weeks later it was cart path only, I parked my cart on the first tee with two of wheels on the dirt. The starter came to tell me to move all four wheels on the cart path. Again I didn’t complain to anyone. Today I was playing with three other guys, we were on the 6th hole when a ranger showed up to tell us to speed up because there was no one on the 7th hole. We all looked at each other shocked.

There was no one behind us or in front of us, we weren’t holding anyone. We finished front nine in two hours and 3 minutes, we finished 18 holes in four hours and 11 minutes.

I seriously think Mercer oak should find better rangers who aren’t their to pull players chains.

about average

Always one of my favorites, wet weather has decimated areas around the course. Rough has grown to the point of ridiculous and can't be cut because of rain on and off. We'll today was relativity dry so break out the mowers.

Will be back.

My first time at the East Course. The Course was in very good shape. I was hoping for a little bit faster greens. Only three holes were a little soggy on back. The pace was not bad. I liked the layout, greens are little on the small size

with interesting undulations. Very nice will be back hopefully it will be a little faster.
