Cow pasture

This course was re-designed with much fanfare and sold as a premium public layout. The layout is quite challenging and looks nice but the conditions are anything but first rate. The fairways were over watered, and where there was grass, it was way too long. I have no plans on returning anytime soon to this overpriced poorly conditioned course. The bunkers were nice but fairways, tees and greens were awful. The superintendent should be replaced. The excuse given was that a wet cold spring followed by hot dry stretch stressed the grass. I'm not buying that excuse as it hasn't affected other courses in the area.

The stress is a valid excuse - new grass reacts differently than an established course.

Do not be put off by the growing pains - this will be a gem!

I'm a skilled golfer. I will be coming back here to keep my game sharp. I know golf and the industry very well. Tees - Fantastic. Nicely squared off and aligned, and maintained very well. They make you feel as though you are at a private country club. Fairways - These are laid out fantastically. I will not deny that the conditions are average at best, but it is clear that once the growing pains of an INFANT course are overcome, they will be good. Greens - This is the strongest part of this course. The rolls are true and the speed is right on. They felt as though they were stimping around a 10, which is a great speed. Rough - Lengths can sometimes be inconsistent, but then again, the rough is a punishment. You are not meant to play the ball from the rough. It is never overly punishing, but do not expect easy pars from the rough. Overall layout - The layout is just fantastic. You will be forced to use many different clubs, which is all you can truly ask for. There is an excellent modern design with a nice nod to the history that surrounds this place. Give this course another month/two months. The course will be great.

Disappointing Course Condition

After all the hype about the re-do and improved drainage design, it was disappointing to find numerous ground under repair patches on the fairways, which also had numerous bare patches elsewhere. Greens were in pretty good shape and rolls were consistent and true. practice traps have regular sand while course traps had silica sand topping? We played the course during last fall's preview opening and had hoped that it would be better this summer. Maybe next season???

poor start

"glove" storage compartment was full of water and i put my cell and wallet in it. cart gps did not work and had to switch out at a moment before teeing off. the others already hit before and were waiting for me. tee boxes were hard, fairways rolling, greens held well, sand traps were perfect some fairways were not in the best condition. beware if it gets much dryer. layup shots will roll in hazards.

Give this course time

I love the redesign. After playing the old Oak Meadows multiple times, I can say that this golf course has improved drastically. The layout is fantastic, especially the back nine with a wide variety of holes. Course conditions are good, not great but as this course continues to mature it will be one of the best public courses in the area. The bunkers are a huge improvement. The additions to the driving range make this course an ideal spot to practice as well. I'm sure along with many people, it would be nice to have a clubhouse but overall great experience

course COULD be fun to lay

3 players and it took 4 .6 hrs to play 18 holes. It had rained the day before and it was cart path only but that wasn't an issue. Had a foursome ahead of us so when we caught up to them at nine we thought that they were just having a bad hole. We dragged for the next 9 holes w/ a backup of other players behind us. No rangers. The foursome was 3 - 4 holes behind the next group in front and wouldn't even waive us thru. I was surprised about how wet the course was after they supposedly put all this drainage in and re did all the holes. Maybe we will try again.

Really enjoyed the course

A beautiful day to play this great course. Conditions were great considering we had heavy rain in the area a few days prior. The changes made to this course over the past 2 years have made a huge difference. Love playing here and would recommend to any golfer looking diva beautiful challenging layout.
