I have played this course many times. It has been taken over by new owners, and some improvements have been made. The traps, that used to be terrible, are now full of sand and very playable. The fairways and tee areas have also been over-seeded and show great improvement.

The greens are in need of some attention. They are very slow, and show some winter damage. I have always enjoyed the layout, with a nice variety of holes.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I will play this course again many times this summer. Hopefully, the greens will improve.

Even though it’s early in season and courses have b en damaged by snow and winter, it is as still a good course.

Greens are aerated so slow and difficult.

Pace of play is always slow so this is expect d challenge,

All in all this course is pretty with some challenging holes. We play it twice a season at least.

We have had a late start to the season this year, so the course has only been open about a week. The fairways were already green and starting to fill in nicely. Didn't look like too much winter damage to the greens. The greens were shaggy and very slow, but that is to be expected this time of year. Cardinal has taken over the course and you can see the improvements in the last year with new carts and improved playing conditions. The range was open, hitting off the grass....no mats, which is a big plus.

Oliver’s Nest is a great course. I played at the very end of the season and the tee boxes, fairways and greens were immaculate.

I found a great Hot Deal on GolfNow which made this round one of the best “values per hole” that I’ve ever found.

We had missed out all summer on getting to this great course and decided before the year was out to at to at least get there. Greens were very good and course condition was excellent save for the temperature but it's that time of year. Whole course in great shape but greens were very fast and undulating. Staff said it was aerated about a month ago and the sand fill in did a great job and brought the greens back great. Couple members we played with said greens had never been this good.

The view of the trees in fall colour was spectacular.

The weather was great so that added to the scenery.

The course has old oak trees which are majestic and breathtaking. Stop playing for a moment and enjoy the natural surroundings.
