This course has a beautiful setting

They are doing a great job on bringing the course back. It's a beautiful setting, great people, haven't tried the restaurant but it is always packed when we've been there. We've golfed at The Oaks 5 times and it gets better every time.

Better Conditions in January

Played here in January and really enjoyed the back nine. This time the course was in tough shape but still very playable. Recent heavy rain delayed grass cutting and quite a lot of standing water. A number of the greens are in rough shape as well. Really can’t complain for the price but hope they can bring it back to better conditions. Very friendly staff and great burgers and beer!

A Hidden Jewel!

I love playing the Oaks for many reasons. The course layout is interesting as the front is well designed and very playable. The back is cut out of a nature forest that is very challenging with an accent of keeping the ball in play. You use every club in the bag and know how to play the back nine by careful club selection. The greens and tees are exquisite and in extremely in great shape. The fairways are very good and the rough challenging but fair!
The restaurant is an incredible establishment with great food and friendly service with Kevin's special sauces and sandwiches. You have to try the wings here. Very good prices as well as the rates to play here.
Once you play it once, I guarentee you will be back many times! Always play here and am a 9 handicapper.

Quiet hidden Jem

In a quiet town in Florida hides this simple and properly quaint golf course that does everything right . The course front 9 is simple and a good test . Well maintained greens give you a true feel . The back nine is beautifully carved out of the local forest providing a scenic view with nature all around , it takes you on a pleasant journey. All that said the course can be challenging as it requires you to be sure to keep it on the fairway , because the rough immediately connects to the forest and not much room for error. However it’s good for all level of golfers.
The staff and hospitality are at the highest level , Kevin and Adam really make you feel welcome . We stayed for a bite to eat and the food is very good with some unique and delicious items on the menu . The kitchen staff and servers really care about what they do and take great care of you .
It’s worth the drive , come and play . You won’t be disappointed.

Out in the woods

Staff is great, price is great, pace is great, not much is missed at this location. Played here a bunch, but not in over a year and it’s in good shape. It’s pretty laid back and everything I was looking forward to. Thanks.

A Diamond in the Rough

Filled with ‘Tin Cup’ charm. So worth the drive and a great value for the money! Pristine greens and approaches that are seriously plush and well manicured. Well marked layout made it easy to navigate the convoluted course. Staff is friendly, polite and courteous. The reality checks are: no water, no sand, tight back 9, and all the fairways could use work. But, it is a gem that I wished was closer to Ormond Beach!! Well worth the drive ..... we’ll go back.

Relaxed play

We always enjoy playing at The Oaks as it is a fairly casual course. Not a course on the pro tour but we enjoy it because there isn't a bunch of players that think they are all Tiger Woods like some other courses. Everyone is friendly and home cooking in the small clubhouse.

Unbelievably bad

To call this a cow pasture would be an insult to cow pastures. Greens were unplayable to the point that I didn't even bother to putt on most holes. All sand and weeds. Fairways mostly weeds. The people in the "clubhouse" were nice and friendly so not their fault but this truly is a horrible course

Serious golfers don’t bother

If your a serious golfer don’t bother, greens are not worth putting on. If your just a hacker looking to slap the ball around and have fun then it’s not bad.

Walked

This course is in great condition for where it is.

The staff is Great. When checking in to play there were alot of people eating breakfast and again when finishing golfing, alot of people eating lunch. The new owner has done alot with this course to improve it. Played the course a few times in 4 years. It's in the best shape ever. Worth playing and we will and highly recommend it!

Nice change scenery! In the middle of nowhere, but nice drive to get there. The staff is friendly and helpful. Fairways are somewhat weedy and thin in spots, but well maintained. Green are in great shape, and there no sand traps. I would play here often if I lived closer.

The course was in the best condition I have seen it in years. This is a very challenging course for every level of skills. Everyone here was having a great day of fun. Beautiful drive among central Florida’s lake country.

Sporty and fun course

Really enjoyed the layout and the course. Greens were great albeit a bit slow. Would have given a higher review but fairways need more grass. Super friendly staff. Played 36 holes in 6 hours with a lunch break.
