Hole # 9 is extremely challenging. Especially for those players who play the red or yellow tees.

Bunkers brutal upscale course

Great course other than bunkers. Owners should be embarrassed as the members we played with were. No garbage cans or washrooms on course other than 5 th hole. For an upscale golf course it needs a lot of work . Picked up beer cans every tee to help out.

Tough

Nice tough course. Tee shots if not in play very difficult. The course like many others right now in the region are very wet making it extremely difficult. Hitting lots of fat shots or trying to pick the ball blading it like a line drive. Having walked the course which was no problem. The bad thing is all the flags are the same color making impossible to know where the pins are. Front middle back is a guessing game. If you are to play bring plenty of balls. Another thing I noticed was if you lost your tee shot to right or left as each fairway is lined with trees there should be more red stakes to speed up play. Unless you’re in a tournament then make it a fun day and just drop another ball and hit 3. Anyways would love to try it with better conditions.

Oakbay golf club. Port Severn Ontario

Course layout beautiful. Tough. Bunkers atrocious. Fairways excellent but a lot of divots. Played with two Members who were very disappointed in the shape of bunkers. No garbage cans. Beer cans all overs course. No halfway house. You have to attend clubhouse after nine to use washroom and lose 10 or more minutes on way to 10 tee. Slows down pace of play . Nice course but it needs a lot of work.

Difficult track but poorly maintained

We unfortunately played the first 6 holes in pouring rain. Course layout interesting but difficult. Not for golfers over 16 handicap. Conditions very poor. Bunkers mud and stones or underwater. Inadequate drainage of bunkers. Greens great. Some cart. Paths under water (18th hole)
Need to play a few times but still a difficult course and this was from my partner who is a scratch golfer

front nine hole layout

Front ninth hole par 5 needs serious changes. Fairway to small for low handicaps let alone high handicaps. The hole in general is poorly designed. Course should be widened, specifically the front nine.
Overall beautiful looking course, but needs some redesign.

Losing balls

So, the course is beautiful and in great condition. Staff friendly. However, there is no margin for error. Slightly hook or slice the ball and it’s gone. Just open up the fairways a bit more and it would be soooo much better. I might lose a ball here or there on a regular round, but here, today, 12!!! Too many!!! Played mostly from the blues, until I got frustrated and played a few from the whites. Won’t play there again. 9th hole is the worst par 5 ever.
Went for dinner after and the food and service were excellent. Would definitely go back to eat.

Very challenging course

We enjoyed our round today at Oak Bay. The course was in very good condition except for numerous ball marks on the greens from lazy golfers who did not fix them. If you are looking for a course to challenge your abilities, this is the course. Lots of long carries and into greens that have a lot of undulations and movement to them. Always enjoy playing Oak Bay

Great day at Oak Bay

Course greens, fairways and tee boxes are in great shape.
Course is a tough layout, but don’t rate it poorly because it is tough. Not the courses fault! Playing well? You’ll have a great day. Hit it poorly and the course will bite back. Course management and hitting fairways are the key.
