Course in great shape

Played Oak Glen and it was in great shape. Fairways were mostly immaculate and greens were pure although a little slow probably due to the rain. A few puddles in fairways and rough but that was to be expected. It was walking only which I was happy about since cart path only slows everything down. Not many people out there and finished in just over 3 hours for an afternoon round. First time playing it since the updates and overall I thought they did a good job with it. However, I think some of the trees they removed took away some of the shot making strategy. The only gripe I have is that they are putting in a bunch of mulch in the areas they took grass out of and I think it looks terrible. The mulch is filled with trash and they are laying it down real thick and lumpy. The course is green and the mulch gives it a bad aesthetic. I think if they were trying to go for something like pine straw or wood chips it should be a thin, smooth layer that can be played out of. They’re putting it down several inches deep and it’s not even whatsoever. I don’t know if they cheaped out on it cause the amount of trash mixed in with the mulch is gross looking especially for a course that asks for over $100 on weekends.

Back up the cart!

I get it, soggy fairways kept carts off. But, with cart GPS - please give us a warning when we are off the desired path. We spent serious time backing-out of areas which were NOT the fairway. Maybe use a differentiating color on the paths you want us to be within.

Unbelievable course.

Whoever designed this course that meanders through some of the most stunning landscapes of any golf course I have played is to be congratulated. It isn’t an easy course and I can’t imagine anyone trying to walk it but the scenery alone is worth the booking fee.

Great Condition! Perfect fairways and greens

They are keeping this course in top condition. Honestly, the fairways are like carpet. The greens have the perfect amount of softness. With the right loft you get a good stick. All around, the course was in great condition. It’s always a challenge to get over the water holes. Only drawback is the small bodies of water, very murky. They really need a better pump system or another waterfall in the newest additions. The water is brown and thick with debris. Not important for the golf game just the aesthetics. We really appreciate the new level of care invested in this course.

Excellent value

Course is in excellent condition and plays great. Green are consistent all the way true. Fairways and T boxes are in great shape. Location really gives u the feel of being away. Highly recommended for all skill levels.

Good and getting better!

You can see and tell that the golf facility is only headed for good things with all the expansion and improvements going on.
The course is rather basic but built for beginners and intermediate players. Grass surfaces are good and getting even better.
Just an example of the quality, this facility intends to be someday, is the fact that the golf Carts are fairly new,, Have faux alligator, seating surfaces, and mag wheels!
Get ready for awesome!!!

Oak Glen

Oak Glen Golf course was very nice. On a holiday week golf can be very tedious and lengthy. But Go, but Oak Glen was well paced with little to no waiting on each box.
The golf carts were fairly new with mag wheels and alligator vin seat coverings, and each cart had its own. GPS monitor.
It was a lot of work going on and around the golf course, So you can tell They are serious about golf.
I believe there are three or four courses on the property Which can give you the layouts you need to keep interested and coming back.

The Course is Not Very User Friendly

First let em say that this is a very mediocre track for $110.

Here are the issues we encountered:

No golf ball washers on ANY of the Tee Boxes or on the Golf Carts

No drinking water stations anywhere on the golf course

Generally only one rake available at most traps, so, people being lazy, they do not walk if the rake is not close by and the traps are generally not raked where players played their shots within the traps

The cart girl only appeared once during our front 9 and did not appear during the back nine.

The round took all of 5 hours to play. If there were a Ranger, he was nowhere to be seen during our round. That being said, we were not held up, nor were we pushed from behind.

The greens are the best part of the course: they are supple enough to hold an approach shot and are firm enough to have true rolls during a putt.

Considering all of this for the cost, we will not be returning.
