Terrible Condition

Fairways were horrible. Mix of scattered tufts of grass, dead grass and very little actual fairway grass. Definitely not worth $43. Maybe at $10.

Tom Tom and Bob

Played here years ago and fond memories no gone. Worse course played in many years. Shameful. And sorry to say. Maybe the money is going to new 18. But Golfnow should provide a warning that this place is very run down.

Poor choice

This course was on very poor condition. I’ve never seen a fairway that was cracked cracked cause it was so dry. It is 100% obvious they put there money and time into marsh oaks.

Old Oaks

I would not recommend this course at this time....there is NO grass in the fairways and the ground is cracking due to a lack of water.

Dry

The over course was ok a lot of ponds we’re almost completely dry. Tee box’s in need of big help could not even get a tee in the ground. Thought 30 dollars on a hot deal was rather pricey for the current course conditions.

Terrible shape!

They have let this course go to waste. The fairways are cracked clay and have little to no grass left at all. Paid $43 on a weekend to play the worst course conditions we have ever seen.

Course Destroyed

They have a water issue. They can not water any of the course. It is destroyed. I have never seen sod have cracks in it before. The fairways are so bad you sometimes had to move your ball 10' just to get on a 1" piece of grass. Tee boxes are just as bad. Hard to put a tee in the ground. I realize that this mishap is not the cause of the owners but they sure should have told the golfers before they made their reservations. They are also now charging $10.00 for a second cart where before riding separate was a safety for Covid19. Very troubling that they keep this info from the golfer until they show up.

Hope they win the law suit

It is a shame that the building being erected across the expressway tapped into this golf courses water and has taken almost all of it. The "Old Oaks" is in horrible shape because of the no water situation. LAW SUIT!!!
Eight weeks ago the course was in good shape. We will come back and support the owners though.

Save your money

Please, and i cannot express this enough, for the the love of god save your money and don’t golf this course. This is easily the worst course I have ever played in the metro Detroit area and frankly isn’t even close. Their fairways don’t even exist.

They should be paying me $43 to play their course instead do the other way around. Absolute highway robbery.

The greens are at least in good enough condition but the rest of the course? Yikes. The fairways are cracked in multiple spots where the DIRT (not grass) is not connected to the ground. The tee boxes are clearly not moved or treated. Just hit wherever there’s actually grass on the Par 3s

Never again. I don’t care if Marsh Oaks is in better condition the fact that they even allow people to spend money at Old Oaks is the reason I will never even give Marsh Oaks a try. They don’t deserve my money.
