Late Season Round

Course was not in good shape. Greens grass was very thin and still showing signs of aeration. Some holes entire fairways were burnt up. Others were under reconstruction including one that had massive aeration which left the entire fairway with plugs of dirt which had to be moved to hit a shot. Tees need serious reseeding. A $25 price to play was about $10 too much given course conditions. Unlikely I will be back in the spring.

First time at Twin Oaks

We the first to tee off in the fog. No one in front and technically no one behind. A great course that I enjoyed.

Great site

Cool site, old estate on the Licking River south of Covington, KY. As others have said, front 9 is flat and predictable. Holes 10-15 are all quite tough, either long or hilly or narrow or all of the above. Miss a green and you are 15 feet down off a ledge. Greens are all small and raised and upside down bowl shaped, and are only in OK shape—lots of ball marks. Fairways were good, rough was thick or patchy. No irrigation so things were pretty hard in some places. I love old courses and wanted to visit this one. Very adequate and busy local muny.

Nice course, great price

Course was in decent shape - some tee boxes were hard, some greens were a little burnt up. But all in all, met expectations at the price of $38. I will definitely play again. Free cups and ice machine outside the clubhouse was nice.

Decent Course

Course in good shape. Layout was simple on the front. Better on the back. Long Par 4's. Pace of play slow, but not courses fault. Overall great day.

Poor condition of greens

It is my first time here and I won’t be back. The course is pretty open and you can get a driver out of the bag but the course condition is far below average. The fairways are not too bad but the rough is all weeds and bare patches. The greens have numerous brown bare patches and weeds growing in the middle of the putting surface. They are also very slow even giving the course the benefit of knowing it rained last night.
Plenty of other options to try.
