Had a chance to play here recently.
Splendid conditions...greens especially.
Not crazy difficult.

A nice value and easily walkable.

First Time Playing

No ranger on the course to move along the slow play. 3 of us had a 4some in front of us with no clue of golf etiquette. They were wearing t-shirts and had 3 holes open in front of them thru 9 holes and didn't let us play through. Other than that, this would be a 5 star golf course.

Worth the ride

Played this course today with my oldest son. In short it was an outstanding round of golf. Course is a definite challenge, greens were fast and firm, and everything was excellent. Can’t wait to go back!

A favorite in the area

For a course thats not private, they keep this place in private country club like conditions and are constantly improving it. Great layout, fairways and greens. The only bad thing about the whole place is the putting green and range. Challenging course with lots of water and sand.

If You Get The Chance, Go Play

Seven Oaks is normally very private (and the outstanding condition of the course shows it), so if you get a chance to play, absolutely do it. The fairways are immaculate, firm and fast greens, and perfectly manicured. My friend and I played the ball down, and it was awesome. The rough is thick so beware if your tee shots miss the fairway, but good shots are rewarded. Love to come back!

Amazing place to play

Very enjoyable Golf Course not too long scorable greens are very fast. staff is wonderful but there's no Ranger to keep the pace of play and if there was a easier place to get stuff on the turn besides driving up to the clubhouse that would be nice but I would recommend this course to everyone you have to play at least once you will fall in love with it

Beautiful Tough Course

Great conditions. Fairways, sand, rough all in good shape. Rough is grabby but not shaggy! Greens were superfast and hard (dry conditions). Beware: Water cuts back and forth through the whole course and is not often visible from the tee.

Fun and Challenging, but payable for most

Very nice and fun course . Very challenging greens, but not so overly fast that they are unplayable for lots of golfers. Streams and hazards in play on many holes, but still enough room to be playable by others than just low handicappers. Well worth the money and drive to get there.

Top-shelf course

This is a fantastic course hidden away in the upper Chenango Valley. The greens are arguably the best I've played and that includes several Top 100 tracks. Keep the ball below the hole or you will pay dearly! I have a membership here despite living 2 hours away due to the quality of the course. There's a reason it's a Top 20 collegiate course.

The front 9 is played over rather hilly terrain while the back 9 is much flatter. The course is criss-crossed numerous times by a creek that runs through the property. It takes a little local knowledge, and google maps, to know where the crossings are at. #15, #16, #17, #18 make for a great finish. The only real weakness are the par 3's. I think #2 is a great short par 3 but some might find it bland. The others are solid but nothing spectacular.

The routing can be a little tricky due to the way the course was constructed. There's also no formal cart paths due it being a college course, aka a walking course.

The course doesn't receive much public play. It's mostly members and Colgate affiliated people. As a result it's very well taken care of. You'll find very few ballmarks on the greens or divots on the tee boxes. The restaurant is excellent and well worth stoppng in before or after the round!
