Oakmont East January 2021

The course is in fairly good condition considering it is January. The par 3's are quite challenging. The par 4's are fairly easy. The greens need some work.

Had to wait in a line to get a cart. It would have been better if they mowed the fairways. Lost balls in fairways because grass was so long.

Oakmont east

The course was in decent shape overall, but some of the tee boxes were pretty poor.

Beautiful Course

Love this course beautiful day and fun 3-4 par holes East course is an easy course for beginner- intermediate golfers and still a challenge for better golfers. Grass is too long in the rough so easy to lose a ball but green and gorgeous down the middle of the course.

Sugar loaf

The course was obviously stressed by local wild fires. However the course itself shows lots of rough spots that indicate lack of maintenance. To bad .

What fairways?

The first five holes had 4-5 inch grass in the fairways, and large clumps of grass trimmings from the last time they mowed, which must have been more than a week ago. Take lots of balls!

Tough executive course

Course is a tough executive course and made tougher because the fairways grass is kept longer than normal fairway length so you have to look hard to find your ball and work harder to get the regular distance on your second shot.

Fairways and Greens

My wife and I played this course several times. Love the location and layout, but the fairways are just plain bad. The grass is long, and clumpy, so a perfect tee shot may or may not be found, and if you do find it it's either sitting on the dirt between the clumps (like in a hole 2in deep) or if it is on the grass it is a good inch into the grass.
As for the greens, several have lots of ball marks that makes a true roll on a putt somewhat impossible.
