Oak Valley Review

The course is challenging and a little unforgiving for someone who plays bogey. Overall, the course is good, and I’ll play it again.

More yardage markers

overall a good course and a value for the money. The only complaint is put in a 100 yard post. There is a red marker buried in the fairway.. This course is difficult to judge distance with lack of visible markers. I can't imagine a wooden post being more than $10.!

1st time at oak valley

i very much like the over all experience. my only complaint was the pace of play was very slow. needed a little more marshalling and perhaps some combining of groups. the physical condition of the course was very good. fairways and greens in great shape. the change of elevations was quite challenging which I also like. will definitely return .

Work in progress

I have played there many times, before and after the change of hands. The course is coming along but has a ways to go. A lot of trees were still down on the course from the storms weeks ago and the fairways could use some work. The Marshals, to me were a little pushy and she didn't seem very friendly. Was quick to push us out on the course and quick to tell us to move it along without cause. Price was a little high considering the course condition.

Positives: The clubhouse looks fantastic and the remodel came out awesome. The staff and service in the restaurant were excellent. The cart girl Sam was top notch, was very helpful and friendly and was busting her butt to get golfers their food and drinks out on the course.

Hopefully things will continue to get better...

6-Somes on the Course

Have played this course a lot over the years and it’s always just ok. However, if you have 5 groups of six playing the course and you still let others on there without telling them, THAT IS NOT OK.
