Very good course, great for the money!

I really really liked the layout of the course. There were a fair amount of risk vs reward situations that I feel make the game much more enjoyable.
The condition of some of the tee boxes were very subpar... And a high percentage of sand bunkers as well. But still a great course for the money!

Traditional course with great value

Old-school course with unconventional layout (three par 5's, three par 3's on the front 9) with lots of "postage stamp" sized greens in very good shape.

Decent Duffer

The course is a rural municipal course but it is fun to play although a bit long from the white tees for most casual golfers. Quite hilly so you want to take a cart. Fairways and greens were in great shape and while there are holes that are narrow most are forgiving.. It was a great day for golf even if the scores were not that great.

Mountain course gem

This course for the money is as good as any. Conditions not perfect but greens are excellent. The back 9 built in 1937 has postage stamp size greens. If you hit one with tee shot you got a pretty good look at birdie. Oakland is only a short drive from deep creek lake resorts. The front 9 is a bit more hilly with more normal sized greens. Bring your short game to this course you're going to do some pitching and chipping

Great round

Played for the first time. Knew it was here but never played. Glad I took the time. Great staff. Had the round of my life. Will play anytime I am in town. Hearing rumors the back 9 may be closing. I sure hope not.
