Old course, lots of charm

I recommend this course regularly. The trees are all old growth so it is beautiful and easy to get around. The course was in great shape. The fairways were very soft, the rough was a bit shaggy but not terrible. The greens are small but usually soft, receptive and fairly flat so easy to putt. I love the clubhouse because it seems straight out of the 60's era. The course amenities could use some work as the practice area and putting green are pretty substandard. It's on the short side but still has challenges as many holes have water protecting the green so you can't drive them. The staff is very nice and helpful.

Sub par

First time at the course, was in good condition however the signage along the whole course was terrible . For the price we expected to be much nicer/better amenities. Don’t plan on coming back this season.

Not One employee wore a mask

checked in and they gave you a lecture about how they we're not including cart with the price anymore and had to ask for the manager to get one that day I know when I book if it says cart nobody cared that work there about wearing a mask not even the management I never saw one person wearing a mask so much for social distancing and I never saw a ranger out on the course FYI IF YOUR NOT INCLUDING CART WITH TEE TIME PRICE I WONT BE BACK the guy actually said it was the governor's fault that they weren't doing any more in to get a hold of the governor if I had a problem with it first I ever heard of the course not making their own prices

Great track

Great track for the price and given the weather, very comfortable walk. Be sure to get a score card, green to tee mapping is t as intuitive as you’d think. Definitely will play here again.

Nice layout- great value

Enjoyed the layout and approach shots into the greens. This is a nice looking course with fair fairways and greens. The rough is tough, the fairway bunkers are well placed and the water hazards are very fair.
Our pace of play was good. I’d only suggest a better cleaning of geese debris around the course.

Course management needs to raise their game

I live a mile and a half from this course. Play it 15 times a year for 6 straight seasons. The amenities are fine, and have improved. The course layout has always been good and the course has been known as a diamond in the rough since I was a kid. It was always known as immaculately manicured, and the local country club tried to poach the greens crew for years. But the course itself has really gone downhill and management needs to be aware of it. The tee boxes are awful, and they didn’t used to be. Worse, the fairways are like sponges. Your feet literally drop into the fairways like an inch because the turf is so spongey. I’ve never seen anything like it. Strangest thing. The sand has never been great here, but it’s as bad as it’s ever been. Please get a handle on the condition of the course guys. There’s no way you can walk out there knowing what it used to be like, and feel like it’s anything other than a wreck now. I’m writing this review because I love OO, and I want it to improve.

Nice Course, Needs Work

This is a nice course but the course needs to be maintained better. Rough was super long. Also, the pace of play was very slow. 5.5 hr round is not appreciated.

Not what it once was

I like the course however it has gone hill. The tee boxes hadn't been mowed in a while and were incredibly uneven.
I probably won't play there again because every time I've played OOCC there has been a jam up at the 10th tee. I don't know how it happens, the pace of play on the front 9 is fine and suddenly there are several groups waiting to tee off on 10th. Really disrupts any rythm you may have. Needs to be managed.
