Course condition

The worst course ever. Greens are in really bad shape, fairway is even worse shape. Sitting water all over the course. No drainage.. they need to shut it down for at least 2 years .

Nice day, seen the course in better condition

We had a nice day, pace of play was good. Tee boxes and greens had some rough spots, tee boxes were dry and overplayed, greens were missing grass in some areas.

$48 for this course?

Sure $48 isn’t much for golf nowadays (with a GolfNow deal) but holy crap. I’m surprised the carts even made it through 18. Then on top of that I’m hitting perfect fairway shots just to follow up with almost an impossible shot from dry dead dirt and grass fairways. Supposedly I was on the not as nice 18 hole course but they kindly put everyone on old oaks because they had a golf outing on the other. They didn’t spare the tee times though for everyone they moved and I sat For 10-15 min at each next hole waiting to tee off because they overbooked so much. Maybe with all that money you’re bringing in you can turn on the sprinklers for the fairway. First and last time golfing here. Save your money and try one of the many others. I golfed Sycamore hills a few days later for the same place and wow was that night and day

Old oaks

Old oaks course, The greens were in terrible condition. It looked like they had some kind of fungus or some thing. The course was in bad shape. Not worth the money. They need to work hard to get it back to ok..

DJ

Fairways look like they haven’t seen water since 1995. They pushed everyone off the other 18 for a golf outing so the course was insanely slow. 2 hours for 5 holes at the start…

DO NOT PLAY HERR

By far the worse conditioned course I have ever played...

They GolfNow gave me a tee time but failed to mention that there were two (2) (yes 2) outings on one course.

They told me to run in front of a foursome.

If that wasnt bad enough, the fairways were DEAD and not even playable due to the patches of dirt all over the place.

The greens were worse, dead / dead / dead... Marbled dead patches all over the place effecting every putt. Horrible!!!

I mentioned it to the older cart-wrangler gentleman at the end and he said "don't even ask, ownership doesn't care & they don't even have an official grounds keeper"

It's a shame because it used to be decent run. Not anymore!!!

Dead-Dead-Dead

Course needs water. Dead fairways, dead greens and dead tees. Do not pay full price for this course.

Avoid at all costs!

The old oaks course is in horrific shape. Half the course is burnt, the other half the grass is gone and it’s just dirt. If you don’t heed my warning bring a hammer to get your tees in the dry tee boxes. It’s criminal that they’re charging $45 to play this course.

Just awful

The grass is in awful condition. Half grass/half dirt. Outrageous price for a poorly maintained facility.

Awful course conditions

I used to play on a league here about 10 years ago and the course was always well kept/maintained. How things have changed. I don’t know what happened or how it happened but there wasn’t a single well - manicured fairway or green on the course. To say it was patchy would be an understatement. Utterly destroyed. Will not be playing here again. I wouldn’t pay $20 for a round of golf here, let alone $45 (old oaks) and $60 (marsh oaks). Terribly disappointed.

Marsh

Played this course few times last year however it’s really bad conditions. Fairways have many dry area/no grass and most of the times can’t even figure if it is fairway. Greens conditions bad too.

Marsh is twice as good as the Oaks

There’s a fungus or dried out areas all over the greens. Watering has obviously not been added to their schedule.

Terrible course conditions. Greens, fairways in poor condition.

It’s hard going to courses like this for the money they charge you. I found most of the greens were very bad shape. They fairway’s worst. Not worth you time and money. Never again!

Worst public course in South East Michigan.

Absolute $#!& hole! Even at 10 dollars it would be a rip off to play this course. The owners should be ashamed
