Very Nice Course
The course is not long, but still challenging in the aspect that you have to think about the placement of tee shots. It is in very good condition, fairways are quite tight and a few doglegs, 6 par 3's. but all decent and offer different challenges with some water features. To play a member's course on a Sunday is not always easy in terms of tee times, so at £30 for a weekend day I think is reasonable.
Fun and challenging
Lovely course. 7 par 3s which makes it different from most courses but very challenging on most. Severe doglegs on some of the holes. Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Great value for money.
Unique Golfing Experience
I was very surprised and pleased with our golfing experience here. Great course to go and sharpen up your game. Shortish course on a small piece of land but very well laid out. Very good fairways and greens. Obviously off course experience difficult to rate due to Covid. Would very much recommend if you want to relax and enjoy a round of golf for mid to higher handicappers ie. the majority of golfers
Short but tricky!
Oakland Park is well kept, nice tee boxes, undulating tiered greens, while not long it is tricky with lots of dog-legs and tight fairways. Perhaps too many par 3s (7)
Casual and relaxed
Booking and checking in were fine. Friendly staff both checking in and after the round at the bar. Had a relaxed round with no one pushing us and equally not waiting The greens were fine, weather was hot so made it interesting. Would say it is not a bad course but that is always of the opinion of each person playing!
From a Covid-19 issue, I think the locals need to understand 1m distance!
Nice course, awful staff
Lovely course, awful staff. Had probably the worse experience of my golfing life at this place due to the snobby, stuck up staff. Had them talking down to me like I was some sort of school kid and for this I and my friends will NEVER be near this place again. I’ll also be telling everyone I know about the horrible people at this place and to avoid and that’s a shame because it’s really a lovely course but one to be avoided due to the stuck up staff...
Excellent pace, managed to get around sub 3 hrs with good etiquette from all other golfers. Fairly forgiving course layout but still enjoyable with a few strategic holes to make you think. Fairways firm but nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year, some of the better condition ones I’ve played on recently to be fair. Tee boxes and greens still soft and Playing true.
Really nice for a short course
Played two rounds here now, the second time to bring some friends. Will be back again.
Oakland is a short course but quite tight so you need to be accurate. I went into several bunkers and they were in good condition, so OK to get out of. There were quite a few divets at pitching distance from the greens -disappointed that these aren’t being repaired. The greens were in a good condition. It’s a level course and 3 of us got round quite easily in three and a half hours - having played the course before I know that does depend on the speed of play in front of you.
Testing & Fabulous looking course
Me and my mate were looking for a round after COVID lockdown and came across this little Coures and was not disappointed.
Yes the Coures was short but not easy, have to be straight of the tee. Would definitely play the Coures again, greens were holding the ball well even with how hot it was. Some lovely looking holes and both of us came of the course and said we would play it again.
If I was to be honest, the only criticism I have is maybe there should be layouts of the holes on the tee boxes as there are a few dog legs and a couple of times we could not work out the hole location or line in, but now we have played it we know it.
Shame we could not get to use the clubhouse as still closed due to COVID but overall great Coures and everyone that worked there was very kind and help full.
Looking forward to going back.
