Second time playing here. Course was in great shape. Bunkers could be better with more maintenance, I thought they were not all that user friendly, mostly noticed that many of them were wet from course watering. Rough was penalizing without being over the top thick. Did not loose a ball in the rough all day. Greens rolled true, were a bit slow but probably because they had not fully recovered from the spring aeration routine. If you are used to flat greens, you are going to have some 3 putts. I found the greens to be overall smallish (most of them) with some false fronts to deal with. Love the overall layout though and will play here again for sure.

Greens we over watered and frustratingly bumpy and too slow. Areas around the greens sticky. For May, the rough was too long and unnecessarily difficult.

I played the West course on Sunday, May 13. The greens had been punched about 4 weeks prior but there was very little evidence of being punched when rolling putts. The greens were fast but fair. I found the rough adjacent to the fairways to be very long and it could used to be mowed down a bit. I lost 2 balls in the deep rough and couldn’t find either of them after an extensive search (I guess I should try to stay in the fairway!). Overall, I had a great day and will be back!

I can sum up this round in one word; outstanding.

Greens; outstanding, they are in great shape and lots of golfers were fixing their ball marks.

Pace of play: outstanding. I teed off at 3pm, and I was told by a regular twosome that is the time to come out and play.

Sites; outstanding. There were lots of holes that caught my eye; tree lined, open fairways. The 13th has a small creek running by the tee box. The 18th hole is one of the nicest finishing holes I’ve seen in a long time.

And getting to the course requires a nice drive through Sonoma wine country.

Enjoy the round!

Oakmont is not extremely long but makes scoring difficult because of the slope and shape of the greens. It makes them drain well but makes some putts very challenging.
