course well maintained
Great course to play. Well maintained. Staff friendly. Nothing bad to say about course, it's all good.
This review has been up for 5 years only 5 more to go
Thank you, DNICE123, for the great review and feedback! We're so happy that you had a great time with us. Come and see us again soon!
The course was in great shape but the greens needed to be cut, very disappointed with there condition.
Been playing here for 10+ years. Nice staff, very well run. Since the reopening from Covid 19, this course is in the best shape I've ever seen it.
Amazing course run by amazing individuals. The only reason the course got any mark downs at all is because of Covid, and I have no idea what off course amenities are offered. Excellent course. Keep up the good work Mercer Oaks!
Thank you for taking the time to rate us 5 stars!
Great round on an excellent course
Mercer Oaks West is an excellent parkland golf course. The holes wind their way through wooded areas in a picturesque layout. The holes vary greatly, but all have excellent green complexes. The course was in very good condition for this early in the season. Fairways were great.
I walked on a good weather day. Course is in great condition
We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review, and we're so glad you had such great weather. We cannot wait to have you back here again soon!
It was great years ago.
Great value to walk for 31 NOT for 55. The fairways are bent/poa NOT bent. The greens have been getting smaller over the last 8 to 10 years. Finally they are trying to enlarge some of the greens by scalping them back but this should have been done last year when they aerified NOT in the spring. Now when July and August comes around the perimeter areas that were scalped will die off. Many of the fairways are getting smaller each year. I have not seen any money invested back into the East or West courses over the last 8 to 10 years or more. Every year conditions continue to decline. It’s a shame because they bring in a ton of money. There is better value elsewhere in the private sector.
Hello Boarshead. Thank you for taking the time to come out to the course and rate us. Let us know what we can do to improve for the future. Thanks for visiting us!
Golf courses OPEN!
What a a great job Mercer County Golf organized the opening of the courses during the Pandemic. Social distance checking in with starter, didn’t even see another golfer the whole round due to the excellent timing. The sun, weather, golf ~ Life felt good!
I have never seen the course in better shape. Thanks to all who made it so.
Thanks so much! We are so glad that you enjoyed our course so much! We cannot wait to have you back again here soon!
Thanks for the great rating, we are so glad you enjoyed the course!
Thanks for rating us 4 stars!
Great to get back out!
The course was in great shape. The 16-minute gap between twosome was totally unnecessary. We did not even see the group in front of us or behind us for all 18 holes. It was kind of nice like we owned the course but unnecessary.
Thanks for coming out to the course. We have guidelines in place for the safety and well being of all, and we appreciate your cooperation and patience with us during this time. We look forward to having you back at the course soon!
Blustery and Cold
We have played Mercer West before and it is still a nice layout and a challenging course. Course is in the process of getting new sod and ongoing maintenance but did not interfere with our round. Greens were bumpy but it is still winter. The weather was blustery and cold, another bad prediction from the weather people. Enjoyed our round and would recommend this course.
Thanks so much for the recommendation. We apologize the weather did not hold up as predicted, but we're looking forward to warm, summer days coming soon!
Long made Longer
Excellent practice facility . Proper range and the putting green is representative of the greens on the course.
The course is rolling with generous fairways and large greens. There is some water and marsh that comes into play on 4 holes. The layout is interesting, I would describe it as woodland links.
There are 4 holes featuring fairly severe doglegs, the most dramatic of which is the 380 Yard 9th that requires a solid drive to an approach of 150 yds, 145 of it over water. Other holes of note are the 600 yd 8th (535 from whites ). The 17th is a picturesque plot curving 405 yards along a large reservoir taunting slicers. The signature par three is a 235 yard (182 from white) par three, with a raised green and deep bunkers guarding short left and right.
Greens were in good shape, we’ve had a mild winter and it shows. They roll true and are faster than your average muni.
I played from the blacks, and from the black and blue tees the course is looong, especially on this days where 12 hours of rain had left the fairways sodden and strong west wind on the back end of front rendered short holes long and Turned long holes into an odyssey. Over 7000 from the tips, 6200 from the whites and 5334 from up front, offer a good test of golf on a well maintained course .
Finally, the staff seems efficient and friendly. I asked to push my tee time back a half hour to practice, no problem, my request was handled with a smile. Solid golf experience.
Thanks so much for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your time at the course, and hope to have you back here again soon!
In good shape for this time of year
Greens were rolling pretty good considering it's still winter golf. Can see the work they are doing to improve drainage. Will be in really good condition once the grass starts growing. Always a good value
Thanks so much for the review. We are always working to improve for our golfers, and we're glad you had a great time. Looking forward to seeing you back here again soon!
