Interesting track but a bit expensive and doesn’t drain well

OV is a nice course with some unique (not necessarily good) holes. Starts with a very short first hole with a large hazardous berm about 220 yards out. So you play a long iron or hybrid and pitch over the berm. There are other holes with similar characteristics and some golfers may not like these funky little holes. I’m fine with them because I’ve played there many times and know how to play them; first time out they could be frustrating. We played after a pretty substantial rainfall and OV was cart-path-only. Reasonable for the amount of rain we had but OV is cart-path-only way too often because it doesn’t drain well. We were lucky to get a 6:10 tee time and played at a great pace (Although slower than usual because we decided to walk rather than deal with cart-path-only and carts). But the group behind us was at least 2 holes behind and I’ll bet it was a frustrating Saturday for many golfers. And that’s the problem with cart-path-only, it can easily lead to very slow play.

Great golf

This course is excellent. Keep in pristine condition, fairways well kept and greens are a great tempo and challenging. Every hole has great character... you'll remember each one for its unique features. Great orice for this type of course.

Horrible customer service

This course has horrible customer service and I would never go here ever again. First they wouldn’t let me book as a single so I could play the tee time after my father in-law and brother in-law. They wouldn’t let me cancel my tee time I booked either. So we decided to play and the course just wasn’t anything special. I am definitely never coming back and telling people to not go here.

Great course

excellent course. Great for the price. Nice driving range, halfway house, and amenities. They always take great care of the course. Only issue is sometimes can get backed up from the first hole being a short par for and then an island par 3 on the 2nd which can bottleneck a bit but after that it’s usually decent pace of play. Overall great course of the $

The ranger there is a putz

The ranger there told us to speed it up, which would have been fine if we hadn’t arrived on a par 5 tee box that had 3 GROUPS on the same hole!
