A shadow of its former self
I used to live not far from this course and played it often. It's very difficult; from the most forward tees (mostly red, some gold), 2646 yards, the slope rating for men is 118. As long as you know what you're getting into, the course used to be fun to play because it's in a scenic location and was in very good shape. Not so any longer. Fairways were full of dirt clods from aeration. Very dried out generally; lot's of brown spots. Greens were reasonably good. Service in the pro shop was fine as usual. Water containers had no jugs; rather a sign inviting golfers to buy bottled water for a buck. The value was fine in terms of a $5 green fee but the hilly terrain mandates riding for many including me. At $9 for nine holes for the cart, functionally $28 for 18 holes, there are many better deals on GN considering the course condition. Plus if you wanted to play 18 lumping in the $5 GN fee the total cost wold be $39 with rack rates for the other nine and cart fee; not close to a value. This was once viewed as one of the best nine hole courses in Nor Cal. A shame. Maybe the "construction" which a couple of players told me was the purpose of the torn up fairways will be over soon but I won't be back to find out.
Hidden jewel in the foothills!!
Nice overall course pretty well maintained.
greens were in good shape
fairways were well taken care of with not a lot of
dead grass or hard pan dirt.
The one & only negative on the course was the sand,
traps(hard clay).This course is more setup for position golf vs. long ball hitters.
The price is right & definitely worth the drive to get out
of town for a day of golf.Thanks Dean L.
Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time at the course. Please come back soon!
Not long but tricky
Conditions of the course improving all the time. Greens in very good shape but a little slow. Course is a lot of fun to play because you have to shape your shots. It’s not a grip it and rip it course.
Hi, thanks for writing us a review. It's great to hear that you think our course is improving all the time. We appreciate the fact that you recognize the work that goes into our course. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.
A gem in the foothills.
The course is in good shape and is the best 9 hole layout in Northern California. It challenges your entire game. The pro, Carol French, played on the LPGA tour and is a very good teacher. Very friendly staff.
Thank you for leaving such a nice review. It is quite the compliment to hear we are the best 9 hole course in the area. We will continue to work hard so you can keep saying that. Thanks again and we hope to hear from you soon.
Enjoyable 9 Holes
This is a nice 9 hole course. It is great for walking. The only issue is the 2 1/2 hours it took to play 9.
Full sized 9 hole challenge
A perfect setup for a left handed player with a wicked slice, you'll find plenty of holes that dogleg left on this par 36 track. Still a great course, especially when it's dry.
Black Oak or Black Eye?
I play this course 30 times a year, and have gotten very used to it. I will tell you to NEVER play on Women's Day! The womans group is rude and will walk into your play at 9am and start their shotgun start without regard to others playing! Then they will play 2-3 shots from every spot, and slow play all your way to the mental sanitarium. So having said that, if you play on a day that is other than WOMEN'S Day... you will have a great time. I find the grounds well manicured, the greens nice and challenging...the fairways free of obstacles except the occasional rock outcropping and lots of Deer. The staff is so very gracious and understanding. They need to purchase new carts, as every time I have been there I have had one problem or another with them, flat tire, will not run etc. Overall I rate this course a solid 4 stars! Auburn Black Oak is a very nice and friendly place to play or pick up a game! Your wait will be minimal and the play is fast! I love this course except on WOMEN'S DAY!
I'm a Black Oak man
My favorite course for iron play. This course plays to target golf over distance. I drive 300, but my love is in my irons.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time at our course. We can tell you have visited before and it's great that you keep coming back. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again.
Very nice course
Great course to walk. Course was well maintained. Friendly staff. Overall, it had a few challenging holes for a bogey golfer, but with enough playable holes to make for a great experience.
We are happy you enjoyed your last visit to our course. It's great to hear you enjoyed our staff and found that the course was well maintained. We hope you'll visit again and give our challenging holes another try.
Greens were still slightly sandy from a recent plug but still rolled true. Signature water feature was drained for maintenance, but still one of the best golf values in the area.
Thanks for the nice review! We hope to see you again soon.
Beautiful 9 hole course! Challenging yet very playable in a gorgeous setting. With exception to construction on the 4th hole (still totally playable) the course is in great shape. Staff was accommodating and exceptionally friendly as well. A very enjoyable experience; I'll be back many times!
Muddy in a few places but overall in great shape considering all the rain we've had. Pace was terrific, no waiting fir next shot.
It's great to hear you enjoyed your time at our course. Thanks for writing such a nice review and we hope to see you again.

Black Oak GC
Love this course! It's nice and quiet and we'll kept up. This course forces you play smart golf if you wanna score well and gives you the opportunity to try to bomb it if you dare.
The staff is always friendly and always act like you're a regular.
The only bad part about this course is that it's only 9 holes! C'mon man! Buy some land around you and put in 9 more!!
