Course was nice. As a first timer, took a couple holes to realize the shortness of the course and adjust the clubs accordingly. Any average to above average plus male can take two irons on almost all of the par 4s and get there in 2. I am a fan of the feel of the course. This is much more of an accuracy course than power and distance. Would recommend and plan to return.

We enjoy playing Big Oak. The staff is just beginning to fix the cart paths which previously made for a difficult ride between holes. The weather in our area has been very rainy so it has also been a challenge to keep the fairways and rough mowed to perfection, but they try their best. The staff is friendly and the food that is offered is very good.

Friendly course. Front nine is older has mature pine trees and short par 4s. Easier for everyone. Back nine is newer and more challenging Lots of water, mature trees and tougher layout than front. All and all a fun layout. Fastest between 10 am and 3 pm. Enjoy! Nice family run business.

I went to Big Oak on Sunday to play the back 9 with a couple friends. We were novice, intermediate, and beginner level golfers. Not much to say about the course in general, some nice water traps, interesting topography, etc. the real reason I'm writing this review is because of the crotchety mean old man on staff that day. We teed off around noon with no one else on the course, and in about an hour and a half we had made it to the green on hole 15. I'd say that's pretty darn good for golfers of our class, especially when one of us had never golfed before. So here we are, chipping up to the green, when the old man rolls up on a cart and asks us what the heck is taking us so long. Apparently this guy expected us to be done in an hour. He told us we needed to finish up the hole and leave, because he wanted to go home. He didn't even give us a good reason. Just that he was sick of waiting and wanted to leave. We called the course a couple days later and they told us all they would do was let us come play at 3:30 but we'd have to be done by 5. We declined because we didn't want to play rushed at all. They flat out refused to refund us whatsoever. 1/10 would not reccomend unless you're into speed golf, if that's even a thing.

When we arrived the staff did not inform us that several holes on the front nine were being worked on. We had to try to jump around and play a few holes from the front - the back was playable. The pace of play was excellent because the course was virtually empty. Apparently members were aware the course was closed. It would have been considerate if the staff had informed us and suggested we play the back 9 with a raincheck for the front 9.

Tight fairways and multiple hazards each hole made for a good challenge. Course was in very good shape especially the greens and fairways. Cart paths could use some repair for pot holes, etc. but otherwise the course was very playable. Also the bugs were not a problem during our round, even in the swamp areas.

The front 9 is a confidence builder, flat not too long and fairly easy. The back 9 is much more contour and trouble. There is a 545 yard par 5 that requires 150 yards or 230 all carry yards. The pond that lies in the landing area for a 180 to 230 yard drive is just wrong in my opinion. I had to hit a 6 iron to keep in play.
