I have played at Oak Creek many times and always enjoyed the course; nice, challenging layout and helpful staff. The course when I played on 6/18 was borderline disaster; virtually every hole had large parts of the fairway in dirt. And more frustrating is that Golf now provided no information when booking about the horrendous conditions - a major failing as Golf now ought to know what the course is like when offering their green fees and ought to have known that these conditions resulted in cart path only - despite 95 degree heat. Shame on the course and its way too high green fees for the terrible condition and shame on golf now. Won't be back for a long ti[me.

Forewarned is forearmed. The warning about the fairway damage from the cold winter isn’t enough. Despite the 2 for 1 coupon offered, it is not enough to warrant charging full rack rate. The course was unplayable. What a shame. I truly enjoy this course, but won’t return until I see that the course has rebounded.

Adding insult to injury, when I purchased a six pax of beer it was served without ice?? Later when I asked for some food — since course does not return to clubhouse — I was told by beverage cart that if I called the clubhouse they would bring out food to me. Called clubhouse and told me they were only serving brunch until 3:30.

Lastly slow play is understandable, but a 6 hour round is not. When seniors who hit under 200 yards are playing from the blues it doesn’t help. Not a ranger in sight.

Upon arrival, I paid my green fees and proceeded to my cart and was securing bag when an unknown man stated " you do know it's cart path only)? I replied, no and I should have been advised prior paying my green fees.

Although this gentleman offered to return my fees, another golfer stated, no one told me either.

I decided to play since I'm here from Myrtle Beach S.C. visiting family.

What I didn't know was that the course was in such deplorable condition. Many of the fairways were grassless, mudfilled and they had the water system on a course that was clearly saturated.

Upon completion of play, the aforementioned gentleman offered a 2 for 1 coupon which Must be redeemed by August 2018.

This coupon has as much value as my playing experience provided enjoyment.

I'm very disappointed and dissatisfied.

I love the layout and variety of this course, however I was completely surprised by the condition of the course. So, let's go with the Pros first: friendly and welcoming staff, the beverage girl was extremely pleasant and attentive, and the facilities are nice. However, the Cons far outweigh the Pros: pace of play was awful--3 hrs 15 mins to play nine; the course conditions were horrendous (the pictures attached are of the #7 par 5 fairway); there were broken sprinklers spouting water at different places on the front; and there was very little marshaling on the course, which was needed given the outing and the extremely slow pace. If they are going to put out an outing on a Saturday morning, they need to either close the course, keep about an hour afterwards before public play tees off, or send groups off the opposite nine. Unfortunately, this course is not managed well to ensure all customers have a good experience--it seems it's all about money! It's really sad, because this course is really a nice tract and is fun to play. I won't go back any time soon...even with the 2-for-1 tickets they gave out.

I've played Oak Creek many times, staff is always great. This time there were many golfers on the course, so golf carts were scarce, and pace was very slow on the front 9 but picked up a bit on the back, though we still waited on mostly every hole. Sometimes there were 4 groups on golfers on a hole, with 2 waiting! The greens were in poor shape, as were the fairways. Its still a good course (long!) and usually in good shape, so I would think they will get it together soon. I would recommend playing there for the challenge, but better to go early and avoid the late afternoon slowness we faced.

Someone definitely thought out the entrance to the golf club. The course is in a gated community but there is a separate lane that takes you directly to the course-no need to wait for a guard to let you in.

The pro shop staff was friendly and organized. We were provided with a cart that had our name posted on it-nice touch!

We started five minutes early. The course was busy and the round took about 4 hours and 20 minutes. The course was in good condition and pretty with lots of trees. In several cases the green to tee was quite long. Stay out of the bunkers because most of them are pretty deep-unnecessarily so.

The value for money at this course was very good.

Tee time was at 12:30 and we were being rushed to get to the tee box at 12:05 to beat a shotgun start. The starter had zero sense of humor or smile...and we were paired up with two guys that already teed off. Needless to say we started off badly. Our cart began to die on hole 11 - called the shop and no one answered until we got to hole 13. The guy that brought the cart out was very nice! The course itself was in great shape and I would definitely come back. The pace of play was horrific - took 5.5 hours to play - fortunately the day was beautiful.

The weather was less than ideal, windy and cold (15 mph and 39 degrees), this made some shots end up worse than they should have. Overall the course was in nice condition. 15 of 18 greens were excellent, 3 could use a little work to be excellent as well. Cart path only made the pace of play slower, but this was understandable, many fairways were still very wet to damp. With all leaves being pushed around with the wind, two balls were lost in the first cut of the rough. It looks like the grounds crew was doing their best to keep the leaves off to the sides in the woods, but the winds were too strong. Very nice round when you consider the conditions. This course is always in good shape. On a side note, ALL golfers should fix their ball marks, I had to fix 3-4 fresh ball marks on nearly every hole... 16 handicap and I shot a 92 (41/51).

I live in Calvert County MD. and as far as I'm concerned this is the best public course in a 30 mile radius. The fairways and greens are great and the rough is just challenging enough without being too much.

The price is fair and as long as they keep these course conditions I will be returning here.
