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.
In these troubled times it was a fantastic way to enjoy some exercise playing Golf, the Course was in excellent condition with fairly fast greens. this is the 4th Time i have played here and this without doubt was the best condition I've ever seen it.
With the problem of Covid 19 everything was in place to play a 2 ball round, easy to sign in, a table with all the relevant information about what and how to play. Tee times every 10 minutes.
Enough space between everyone including the car Park.
Well done Oakland park it was fantastic.
Oh and i had a good round.
Great experience post covid lockdown
The course was in very good condition other than bunkers but that is a very small detail. Greens were lovely and was a great experience. Can’t comment on amenities as non were open but they looked ok hence the 2 rating.
This course has character.
Amateur friendly and highly recommended for children, ladies and senior citizens. The course has 8 Par 3 holes and 2 Par 5s. Thoroughly enjoyed playing on the course even though the fairways were wet due to recent rain.
Played there just after lock down was relaxed
Greens to hard ball would just run needs watering.short course which is not a problem as it’s pretty tricky.
But fairways was rock hard too. Average course bit pricey for £30

Whilst considered by many to be a short course this is made up and more by the degree of challenge, variety of holes, requirements for accuracy, and generally very good course conditions.
With a warm welcome both in the Proshop and bar area a small but disappointing let down were the quality of the bunkers (relatively under prepared) and after play blowers, however neither of these factors diminished the quality of the course , pleasant and charming views and general enjoyment of the round.
Tidy little course
Well kept course, nice greens and peaceful round of golf. It’s a short course, but tight and challenging in places with some fun holes. Pace of play can be slow, clientele is mostly retirees. If you’re behind a comp, you’re screwed.
The geezer that runs the bar is full of life and makes you want to play there more, always asks how your round was and makes sure you’re happy. Same can’t be said for the guy in the pro shop, the most miserable man on earth if you aren’t a member. Seems to find enjoyment out of stitching you up and resents the fact you’re playing on his course.
Tight little course with plenty of challenges
Have played this course many times and was surprised at the general state of the course. It all looked a bit shabby. Tees were worn as were fairways. Greens were pretty good but have been better. Bunkers are a complete lottery. A shame really as it is usually a pretty little course.
In the clubhouse we were charged £4 for a juice and lemonade [I don't usually get charged that in London] and it was definitely not service with a smile.
considering the time of year the course was fairly good, although the Winter mats were a little to be desired as they were quite poor in condition. However this is still a good place for a round of golf and the price i paid was excellent.
Arguably too many Par 3’s but a solid test
Only short but narrow and a real test of the short game. Played with a low handicapper who really enjoyed it.
Played this course Tuesday 5.30 pm and went round in just over two and a half hours.Although it’s a short course it’s quite challenging and the walk is easy
The greens were fantastic considering the dry weather we’ve had
For me as a long hitter it’s nice to drive off using a 4,5,6,7 or 8 iron rather than just banging out a driver and the short game gets plenty of practice!
Played it a few times with golfers who are members of other clubs in the area and all enjoyed and would recommend
We got a hot deal to play at 3pm and the weather was perfect. Lovely course and enjoyed the water holes. The 3 of us had a quick round as course not busy and we wiill be back. Just a shame not many par 5.
Then a nice drink in the Clubhouse to finish our game.
1st time wont be the last
with the weather we have had lately was expecting a boggy afternoon was more then very surprised drainage is excellent and the course itself very well looked after, nice little gem of a course will be returning as often as possible staff great one of tee off times best value for money in my eyes.
Greens and bunkers appalling
The greens had been hollowtised in last week. Bumpy, so slow, bunkers looked like they had never been raked. Following a roll up and a society so pace slow. If you paid the full £40 green fee you would think you had been mugged. Played the Oxfordshire the day before for £26 no comparison.
The course was in perfect condition friendly staff made us feel welcome
