Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Maryland
Always a fun test.
I have played Oak Creek many times but today was especially fun. The weather gave us a break and the course was in excellent shape. The staff at Oak Creek is always very courteous and helpful. Pace of play was excellent.
Course in Fair shape
Have played this course in the summer and it was much better than. Today The greens were in bad shape. They had top dressed the greens and there were many ball marks on the green. The fairways were in fair shape. The play was very slow. We had a group in front of us that was very slow. I called the clubhouse to complain and was told they don't have enough people to come out and check. Wait until April to play this course.
Excellent Value, Hidden Gem
Played for the first time. Tucked away off Route 301 near Lake Presidential. Terrific track, mature, well groomed, nice visuals. Great combination of tight and open driving lanes. Can't wait to play it again and apply some strategic shot making.
Recommend you call ahead
When I showed up for my round Friday morning, there was a tournament taking place on the course. There was no parking and they were having trouble providing carts for upcoming groups. When I arrived at #1 tee I was told I was being paired with the foursome ahead of me and that they needed my cart (that I’d just paid for). Long story short, the guy in the clubhouse was able to find another tee time for me later but I would suggest that if you’re new to the game and/or not comfortable playing with strangers you call ahead.
Greens were slow and bumpy need care. Many unfixed ball marks , rough uneven. Some bunkers need sand
It was raining when I went so it was a bit swampy but regardless, an absolute beautiful course with plenty of nature and great holes. Probably the best course I’ve been to. Do recommend
Excellent golfing experience
Highly recommend Oak Creek for anyone who has not played it. Challenging but fair layout, and course is in pretty good condition which is usually the case.
Pace of play is abysmal, will not return.
Loud group in front , 6 man group in front, too many unrepaired ball marks, no sand in carts, Marshall is around but didn’t help pace, houses in play every hole, long drives between holes, pace of play horrendous, course is not forgiving, no ball cleaners, no yardage markers, can’t use driver on range, they don’t sell long tees, 1 hole had 11 golfers, too many security check points through neighborhood, similar to cross creek GC, tee boxes were very hairy. Playing partner had many drop kick drives due to Bermuda. 2some in front left after 9 due to pace.
Positives: fairways are nice, rough decent. Shot makers course.
Not a good experience
First off, the tee boxes, fairways, and rough are in decent shape. However, greens are in terrible shape, with pitch marks everywhere. There aren’t any ball cleaners on any holes, one of the coolers was out of water on a 90 degree day, there was a group of six in front of us and Marshall said they weren’t the issue it was the group in front of them. Only four of the six were playing but the fact that they let a group of six stick together and socialize is annoying because ultimately that slows down play. Also, no sand in carts. Took about 5 hours to finish round. Well be taking our money to Lake Presidential next time we play in the area.
Pace of Play
Cart path only and 10 minute tee times leads to almost 6 hour round. Course management needs to get better control and devise a system to address this. Poor planning and course management!
Because of thick (what must be?) Bermuda grass, shots don't roll or bounce onto green as much as other courses in the area, and this took some getting used to. Course is in very good shape.
