Located less than an hour from Seattle in Lakewood, Oakbrook Golf Club is one of the area's hidden gems. Opened in 1966 as a private club, the course opened its doors to the public in 2012. The course is known for its smooth, firm, and fast greens. The 6,700-yard layout plays both narrow and long but it is player friendly enough to appeal to a wide range of skill levels. With hundreds of mature oak trees scattered throughout the course, accuracy is key. It's a course that rewards strategy rather than raw skill. One of Oakbrook Golf Club's toughest holes is the par-4 seventh, which you'll have to play from below since it's sloped steeply from top to bottom. The downhill shots and doglegs will put golfers of any skill level to the test.

Great course bad marshal

Course marshal was very rude and approached us in the parking lot when we got out of our cars telling us that we can be fined for outside beverages. I understand he has a job to do but we hadn’t even got our bags out of the car yet. On top of all that they didn’t even have a beverage cart out on a Saturday when the weather was nice. The course was nice and in good shape but the staff makes me not want to golf here again.

Slow

Idk what it is about the west coast but but seems like people move 10x slower started at 1:46 ended at 6:29, My average round is 3:30. Other than pace the course, staff, and facilities were amazing.
Recommendation: have a Marshal monitor pace because people move like pond water.

Oakbrook Golf Course is a hidden gem

Previously a private golf club, Oakbrook golf course is part of the Ryan Moore organization.

I the course is in perfect condition, the fairways are like carpeting, the greens roll true. It’s more difficult than most courses I play, but well worth the challenge.

Excellent Customer Service

Tee time was 11:27a and I got it in my head that we were off at 11:37a. By the time I realized I'd messed up, I got into the pro-shop and the guy at the desk (wish I'd gotten his name) said he was stacked for the next 90 minutes. He offered to have the pro, who was giving a lesson, to run us out to the single we were paired with once his lesson finished. We waited for about 40 minutes and when the pro came back to the shop, they discovered a gap at the 10th so they sent us out on the back nine. We finished the back in around 2 hours, then got sent out on the front nine immediately. Played that nine in under 2 hours. The pro-shop guy apologized for the delay and said we could play for free next time we came back, even though the error was completely mine.
The course itself has tree-lined fairways that are tough but fair. Greens are multi-tiered and can hand you 3 putts or worse if you're not careful.
Can't say enough about the friendly, helpful staff.
Would definitely recommend this course for golfers of any skill level.
My only complaint would be maybe having a starter to keep jack wagons like myself on time. LOL

It’s in pretty good shape

Hadn’t played here since my in-laws were members 30 years ago. Had a noonish tee time and didn’t have anyone around us all day, very pleasant. Greens, fairways, tees all good. Tried to get lost between holes, maybe more signage.

Classic country club you can play and it is So good

I have heard about this golf course for years. Happened to be in the area doing business in Puyallup and played in the morning. From the opening tee shot you realize that this should still be a country club. Treelined fairways, a great route, have to work the ball both ways into the green complexes, fantastically well kept conditions, and the greens are top notch. For a public course and the price - I can’t imagine a better combination. The staff were great. The type of place I could play everyday if I didn’t live sixty miles away. Five stars for everything.

Nice course and easy to walk

Nice course to play if you're in the area. A little hard to find, but worth it. Plenty of challenges. Greens a bit slo, but run true.

Nice layout for any level player

Nice course, but the greens were recently punched. Pace of play was good and the staff was friendly. The greens were a bit bumpy, but the rest of the course was in good shape. Would play again.

Oakbrook Golf Course

IMO, Oakbrook Golf Club is one of The Best courses in the greater Tacoma area. It’s more difficult than most, but in a ‘fair’ - not tricked up way. I play it multiple times every year to determine my own game.

The fairways and greens are perfect. The staff here are exceptional. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
