So Close...

A conflicted review for Oak Marsh. I really like the course layout and the people are great. But a two things that are disappointing - one can be controlled and the other can't. First, Oak Marsh is the definition on a public course - lots of players, poor etiquette, greens that should be great but almost know one has heard of repairing divots, and tee boxes that look like they have taken incoming artillery shells. I played later in the day so I may have seen the course at its worst. Very firm and fast greens that hold few shots - probably the weather. All of that is what it is really - so not a huge complaint.

But pace of play was bad and not a ranger in site. My twosome ended up getting lucky and multiple groups let us play through - including the six-some that had really slowed things down. How does that happen?????!!?!!!! Six players in a group? Another two some was so bad we drug behind them for over 20 minutes on a par 5. Ranger should have been there telling them to pick up their ball and move on since we couple up to the other part of their foursome that had left them behind they were so bad. I really don't care if you are bad - just realize you may have to pick up your ball and call it quits on certain holes when you have groups behind you. This is a problem that could easily be fixed - have a ranger and don't send out six-somes.

Otherwise, the course is a lot of fun. Challenging but not crazy. Pretty straight forward in the way you play it so better golfers may find it on the easier side.

Greens

Greens were great as far as the work the grounds crew does. Wish the golfers themselves would do their part and fix their ball marks.

Great course if you’re in to 7 hours rounds

They really just let anybody on here. Don’t play here if you’re trying to get a quick round in or make your grandma’s funeral next week
