Tough and fair layout...stay out of the heather and long grass or it could be a long day. Lots of undulating greens...two putts are no bargain. Friendly staff before and after our round A hidden gem of a course.

Played on a forecasted rainy day and course was wide open. Paired up with a good golfer and we got out in less than 4 hours. Will play again, definitely worth the GolfNow price

OSL is always a great value. Nice, playable, well maintained golf course, that can be played by any level golfer. OSL is offering the best Hot Deal of the early 2018 season. The greens are being aerated so they have been bumpy the last two weeks. I played the course the last two Wednesdays. Today, 5/9/18, the greens were much better, but still not perfectly smooth. The clubhouse guy said they need a stretch of warm weather to get the greens growing again. They should be fine in a week or two. I drive down from Burlington and it's worth the trip. Rte24S, 104E

Good course. Excellent layout and conditions are great. Course was aerated two weeks before we played and the price reflected it. Lucked out and was able to get the golf now hot deal also. Have played in prime condition and it's one of my favorites to play. Price climbs in nicer weather but worth playing. Tried to grab a bite to eat after the round but the kitchen was closed.

Ok to play once, but no discount or atleast a free bucket for having just irrigated the greens. Greens were awful and range balls must be taken by cart over to the range, staff wasnt too friendly, especially outside of the pro shop, like the ranger. I wouldnt play again, you dont get enough fo what you pay.

We were a bit late getting on course but ranger squeezed us in no problem. Very nice guy and welcoming. Greens were a little inconsistent and there was a lot of trash in the bushes. There were also a couple of cigarette butts on the green. That’s not necessarily a reflection on the course in so much as the laziness of other golfers. Pocket your trash or put it into any number of the available receptacles. Good value and would definitely go again.

It's still early in the season, and it has been a wet April so far. OSL was really wet, but playable. The greens are a little rough - they have these weird mini-ridges running through them that will knock the ball off line - but it is early. Not a lot of people out on the course, but it was 40 degrees at the start of the round at 12:39. Usually the rounds are slow on a weekend afternoon, but it only took 4 hours to play that day.

Very playable for a February 24 day in Massachusetts. 55 deg., course in pretty good shape, albeit a little wet in some spots, but overall a great experience. Light rain for about 20 minutes during a 2 h round.

No carts as expected, nice easy walk for 9.

That fact that I was out playing golf in February, after a light snow a few days before, in just a light zip top, long pants and no gloves was pretty sweet.

Love this course, especially since it will stay open year round as long as there is no snow on the ground. No temporary tees and just one temporary green, which is rare during the winter.

this course can be very nice in the summer, but the setup they use for off-season play is flawed.

the greens have been verticut, the pins placed on the very edges of the greens, and there is only 1 set of tees. 16 is a temp green. obviously the course thinks that this is the best way to maintain the course over the winter, but it makes for a silly game of golf. overpriced for these conditions.

Normal weather delay due to frost backed up the start times as expected, and was handled with all due professionalism...

NOTE TO GOLF NOW THOUGH...the threesome I was matched up with, came via the GOLFNOW website and added an unplanned on 4th to complete their group...if not for the ability of the staff to reroute myself, not sure what would have happened to either side of that potential situation...

As is was, played with three great fellow golfers, got done very quickly since we did not lose too many balls...

Will recommend the entire course and just a good day...
