Whitney Oaks Round

The course was in good shape and the greens rolled true. They were a little slower because of our early tee time and were quickening up towards the end of the round. We played in just over 3.5 hours.
The sand traps in front of the green have been filled and are now grass. That made the approach shot a lot less menacing.

Course is in very good condition

The last couple years this course hasn’t been in the greatest condition but today it was very good; glad to see they’re putting some time and effort into maintaining the course. Greens were tough as always but not quite as fast. Pace of play was excellent! Didn’t hurt that I had my best round ever here.

Great Course

I loved the layout. The course meanders through some beautiful homes. They are not too close that you have to worry about hitting them, but makes the ambiance feel rich. There are several natural, large boulders around the course, that make it challenging and interesting. It was my first time playing here, and I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend it! The only thing that I might suggest is that they have a refreshment cart. It was hot out there, and would have liked a drink.

Need Marshals

This course desperately needs marshals to improve the pace of play. It took me 3 hours to play the back nine. Adding marshals would improve pace of play.

This is a difficult course for new golfers

This is a beautiful course but not an easy one. If you want a challenge this is for you. A few blind holes and lots of challenges in the fairway. I am normally a 3-5 Handicap and hit a 79.

Fairways need rain & fertilizer

We played Whitney Oaks for the second time. We again enjoyed the course layout and design. Unlike some of my friends, we enjoyed some of the unusual holes. I’d rather have these type of holes than the old back and forth course designs of the past.

The course does need some grooming, especially the the broadleaf growth on the fairways and tee bodes. Some rain would surely help with the growth of grass on the fairways. The conditions of the greens was excellent.

Beautiful scenery and well managed.

The starter was friendly and professional. He let us start a little earlier than our tee time and while we were waiting for our turn, he gave us some helpful information regarding the golf itineraries and traveling to different places. Except some bunkers, the course seemed to be well managed. The breeze helped me to play a little more comfortable in the upper 90 degree heat. This the second time we played here but I think we can play here on a regular basis, although I have to drive about 50 plus miles one way. Thanks GolfNow for maintaining the Whitney Oaks Golf on the Hot Deal list.

Course has excellent potential

It is difficult to thoroughly review Whitney Oaks because of the extreme drought conditions in our area. With the right amount of water, the course could be very nice . The. Layout was interesting, the surrounding environment was a good backdrop for the course design. The tee boxes needed some care. Overall, I enjoyed my golf day atWhitneyOaks. The staff was especially helpful. They seemed like they were really pleased that we were playing their course e.
