Excellent layout, challenges you to go for it

All Oakwood courses are in excellent condition with the exception of the bunkers. They have been a struggle for a long time. Not enough sand, mud puddles, often like hitting out of setting concrete. every hole has unique challenges, great for double digit handicaps, opportunities for birds and better. Staff is excellent across the board. And can't say enough about the conditions, especially considering how much play the course gets. Par 4 #8 is short, challenges you to go for the green. Miss to the left and you are wet, miss to the right and you have trees, a concrete cart path, and shot to the green against water off of the back. Eagle or Double Bogey. Green quite challenging unless you stay below the hole. 7. 8. 9. worth the price of admission.

Oakwood

The course was in excellent shape. Has some of the nicest fairways I have played on this summer and better then many courses in the prime of golf season. Greens putted true. Had a threesome in front of us that played kind of slow. Wouldn't let anyone play through and of course no one came out to speed them up..

Nice Course, Friendly Staff

Teed off at 8:30 on a Sunday and had the course to ourselves, typical this time of year in this retirement community. We finished in 3 1/2 hours. Greens were in great shape, just a bit burned outside them on some holes. Fairways were in pretty decent shape, although a little wet in some spots. Not much rain this summer so the watering is needed, just move your ball a few feet. Had a delicious lunch in the restaurant afterwards. A great day was had by all.

Great Course... Unfortunate Restaurant experience

I always have enjoyed this course. The greens are in great shape and the course is always well maintained.
The only issue I have has was purchasing the discounted food ticket, when I got to the restaurant they didn’t honor it if I didn’t buy a meal, so I couldn’t use it, then my playing partners that came in later were allowed to use it for 1 beer.
When I explained this to the shop my next visit they simply shrugged and said ohh well.

I was disappointed in that reaction, but having said that, I will continue to play here and bring others as this was a hopefully isolated incident

Faster greens add a nice challenge.

The greens are a little faster than I remember from past rounds, which I enjoy. The course has some nice nuances that make it an enjoyable challenge.

Typical retirement community course

Course is flat with lots of water hazards. Hazards are typically either easily played around and avoided or require short carries. I thought the fairways were in acceptable condition, but no more then that. Greens seemed fairly small with more subtle slopes. I liked the course and its worth playing. Lady in the pro shop said it’s easier to get a tee time on the weekend, as all the members okay during the week and take the weekends off.

Tale of two nines

We have played this course many times and were very surprised by the condition of the Lakes nine.It was in the worse condition we have ever seen,very dry,terrible greens,bare fairways ect.The sonoran was perfect,plush,great greens.It was like summer on one side winter on the other.Why???Next time we play we will avoid the lakes nine at all costs.

Very pleasant place to golf !

We live in this community so we are regulars here. Course is in great condition. We played Sonoran/Lakes combo .(there are 3 "9's).
We were matched up with another couple and it was very compatible - A day on the golf course like it should be - "make new friends -have fun!"
The clubhouse has a great Happy hour and food is good.
Unfortunately you won't find it on Golfnow often but if you do -Grab it !

Enjoyable round Lakes/Palms courses

We arrived and the drop off area and the Club house is designed for residence. When we checked in and got our cart everyone was really friendly and helpful. We played the Lakes and Palms courses. They also have a Sonoran 9. The blue tees are about equal to white tees at other areas but I am not a 7000 yard hitter so that is fine with me. The red/gold tees were fair for women (accord to my spouse). The course was in great shape but they were still where in cart path only from winter grass over seeding. The fairways were medium wide and the Lakes had water on all holes. The Lakes was the harder of the two 9’s and all greens had many bunkers protecting them on both 9’s. The greens were not flat but they where not extreme either. I really enjoyed the greens because they were fair but not easy. My spouse and I really enjoyed the round overall.
