course was good

course was awesome. the had just aerated the greens but they were still rolling amazingly well. i always enjoy the course. even though its very open you can get into trouble if you dont put it in the right place. But i love the course and for 25 dollars its a steal.

Exceeded expectations

Good late summer golf can be difficult to find, but twin oaks was in really good shape. The tee boxes were soft. Only one green had some damage. Fairways had a multitude of different grass growing in it, but there was grass. Will definitely be back.

This course is NOT worth $46.50. Furthermore, the starter(s) are not well managed. This is the ONLY course I've played that permitted a five-some to play. The started permitted this...it slow the pace of play. There were back-ups due to the five-some.

rude staff, average course

There was no one at the registration desk when I got there, and when they finally showed up, they were more concerned with when I might be done with my round than welcoming me to the place.

When I finished, someone from the staff seemed to be out-and-out berating a customer in the parking lot. Bizarre experience.

A solid value

Have walked the front 9 many times only play the back when I can get a cart cheaply, as yesterday. Front is mostly straight forward, while the back punishes errant shots with lost balls as water and/or OB looms on most holes. Most fairways are good and greens fairly quick. Rough is generally playable. Sand traps are well maintained except for one flooded/muddy one, which of course I found.

Course is set in urban area so not the quietest course, but a pleasant place to play.

Rude Staff

Play here almost weekly and consistently have dealt with some of the rudest staff in the clubhouse. The persons running the restaurant could not be any less friendly to someone wanting to spend their money here. They are argumentative and seemed bothered to help you. It’s a shame such a nice course lacks all customer service.

Great course, pretty good fairways (except for the reseeded areas)

This was my first time using this course. I've always been hesitant to play it because I once lived nearby and my backyard had a lot of mosquito problems. However, it was a beautiful day (no mosquitoes either!) and the course was well manicured. The rough was thick. The fairways were pretty good--patchy at some locations-- and 12, 13, & 14 are being re-seeded, so if you hit into the re-seed areas, they ask you to take a free drop rather than hitting out of there.
The course is relatively flat and doesn't have too many thickets of trees, so I didn't lose many balls.
The couple of forced carries are nice, and the carts are nice as well. I think it's probably my second favorite public course that I've played in NKY.

As expected early season

No shock that the course isn’t in great shape yet being it’s so early....most all the fairways are bare and patchy...greens are VERY quick but are rolling true....tee boxes are hit and miss....but like I said, I didn’t expect good conditions, I just wanted to get a round in....staff was very friendly, as always....had the course to myself besides 1 guy behind me and I finished in about 3 hours with a 9:00 tee time....I got the hot deal so it was worth it, but I would not pay anymore than 15-20 dollars to play this course right now

$30 not $25

Online price was $25 but when I got here a rude old man demanded $30. Claimed $25 was the weekday rate.

Full Price, really?

I will never understand why courses feel they can charge full price, when the course is not in top condition. To charge $46 for this course is questionable to begin with. There is major construction going on that effects 2 holes on the back nine, no reduction. Also, all greens had recently been aerated and were very uneven and extremely sandy. Again, I understand that both of these things are probably needed but lower your rates while they are going on!

Fun course

Course is a lot of fun to play. Fairways are well tended. Greens are true. The back
Nine is kind of a mystery. Completely different philosophy than the front. Greens and fairways still well tended but lots of sloping fairways, drained ponds, and weird shots. Would still play this course 5 days a week.
