Oakbrook Golf Course
Oakbrook Golf Course in Stoystown is one of the area's most popular courses. Not only is it a great value, the course is a challenging round, even for low handicappers. The golf course is tight with many narrow doglegs. It's a seemingly short layout at 6,115 yards from the back tees but there are still holes that long hitters will enjoy. The front nine is more open while the back nine gets tighter. Strategically placed bunkers border the small greens. Although the terrain is mostly flat, there are some surprising breaks in some of the greens. The layout has a mix of short and long par 3s and the par 5 holes are especially tricky. There is a bit of rough and some water coming into play but it's nothing overly difficult.

Fun course in great shape
This was my home course in high school as I grew up, and it continues to be a fun round with improvements being made each year. The new owners are great and staff is friendly. The two nines are different in character, giving variety to the course. The front is shorter with more up-and-down holes, while the back is longer with more side-to-side holes. If you're a fan of par-3s, you'll love this course because all 6 of them require a different club off the tee. While the course isn't too long even from the back tees, there is enough trouble across the property that you can't always expect an easy round. Greens and tees are always in great condition. I highly recommend this course for anyone that lives near or passes through Somerset County.
An old customer
New management took over last year and have been making improvements to the course, pro-shop and products offered. The course is in very good condition for early in the 2017 season.. The course layout is forgiving to mid-high handicap players. All holes have four tees accommodating all skill levels, and on many holes course management is required off the tee as the surrounding hardwood and pine trees provide challenges to second shots. All of the bunkers have been completely redone with new, fine, white sand. Views of Laurel Mountain give pause on west facing tees. The Pro Shop is run by a PGA Pro and his assistant is in the process of obtaining his PGA card. The course super and grounds crew are friendly and accomodate golfers with little to no delay to play. Plans for future include opening the Grill Room again. If you are in the area, try a round here, but call ahead as the course is getting popular.
Course is in nice shape,pro shop staff friendly
Don't Go Out of Your Way to Play
I have played about 4 rounds here this year. All using the Hotdeals on Golfnow.com. The course is just average, nothing special here. Plan to eat elswhere as there is barely anything else but hotdogs offered in the clubhouse. Not much money being put back into the course. Lots of areas under repair for extended periods of time. Overall.....don't go out of your way to play here. Lots of other courses in the area with much more to offer out of town golfers.
The course is not bad for the price. Greens were fast and the concessions were limited. However, I would definitely revisit
Course was in beautiful shape. If it wasn't such a hike, it would be my go-to course.
great moderately challenging golf course
I was passing through this rural area of Pennsylvania and had an overnite stay and some time in the morning to kill. I loved the course. Paired up with some very nice people.
It is really out in the country and had some nice views. So if you ever find yourself in this part of Pennsylvania you will not be disappointed in playing this course.
I thought the condition of the greens were rite on. Almost got hit a few times due to some of the fairways run next to each other. Other then that I really enjoyed it.
Oakbrook in great shape
Course was in fine shape for early season. Early morning tee time, front 9 pace was great; slowed a bit on the back. Will definitely play again.
Quick round with son
Wet morning, so my son and I decided to try and get a round in after the weather broke. Got a last minute deal for $20 per person for 18 and a cart. Only saw four other groups. Course is challenging enough for a double digit handicapper like me, but forgiving enough for my 20 year old son who has recently started golfing. Greens in fabulous shape. Great relaxing day.
Poor Pace of Play
We were supposed to play 18 holes, but quit after nine. We caught up to a foursome after 6 holes of play and waited on them through the last 3 holes on the front nine. We thought surely that the foursome would let us play through, but when we got to #10, not only was the foursome still in front of us with no intention of letting us play through, a couple jumped in on #10. We then would have been waiting on SIX golfers. Those 4 players displayed very poor golf etiquette as did the couple who jumped in on #10!
Bring your "A" game
Great layout that challenges your length and shot making skills. Some wide open holes are not as wide open as they look from the tee. Two long narrow par 5's and the par 3 18th is a bear. If you like to challenge your game this course is a must play.
This course has nice fairways and greens
I played a round of golf of 18 holes with my grandson and I enjoyed it very much, nice weather and course was in nice shape, some repair going on
but that is to be expected. Recommend the course
First round out after my first born, so I was expecting to be a tad rusty. Course was in excellent condition, and easy enough to read. Love the Par 3s over the water (the course boasts two). The round went well for all three of my group.
Pace of play terrible. Six groups between holes 10 & 11. 10 min wait on every tee box. Tried to get rain check, got attitude from clubhouse manager. Won't play here again
First time at Oak Brook
This was my first time playing at Oak Brook. I was thoroughly impressed. The fairways were wide and the greens were big. The course was pretty easy to get around and in pretty good condition. It was a little dry and hard in some spots, as there hasn't been much rain lately, but it was still in very good condition.
I would definitely recommend playing this course.
