Just an all round awesome experience

Grill closes at 5:00. Recommend it stay open later for twilight golfers. Other than that, beautiful large greens, nice fairways, and excellent course condition. Golf was excellent.

Fantastic course

The weather was in the low 80s. The course has everything you need to make it both challenging and fun. I have played this course a good few times (8-10 times maybe) and always have a brilliant time here. I would highly recommend it!

Wow!

We were looking for a place to play on the way to Myrtle Beach and found this gem! Greens were amazing, layout was terrific, but the staff made it over the top! So welcoming that I wanted to do our trip there! Must try!

Excellent

I really enjoyed the course. The course is in excellent shape and is a fabulous layout with elevation changes and Watet strategically situated. Front nine took 2 hours, while the back nine took 2 hours 30 minutes. I will definitely play Oak Valley again.

Amazing value for a Palmer design

The designers did a great job with this course, and the staff keep it up very well. Since we were a twosome about two hours after opening and there were a number of foursomes ahead of us, they recommended that we play the back nine first, take a short break for lunch, and then play the front nine with a member single. It worked out wonderfully. It plays longer than the card due to the use of hills and water. Even the one jammed in par three (#8) is an attractive and challenging hole.

I would definitely return the next time I am in the area on I-40.

Always Delivers

Oak Valley seems to always deliver great course conditions from tea to green. The fairways are fantastic, the greens are absolutely wonderful and they roll true and they all roll the same. It’s absolutely a great golf course!

Great Palmer Course

The course layout is an excellent Arnold Palmer design with water on several holes and some decent elevation changes incorporated. Unfortunately, and this was my fault and choosing, I played only a day or two after the greens were aerated and thus I am unable to speak to the actual quality of the greens. I will certainly plan to go back when the greens have healed. Overall the course was very enjoyable but with aerated greens it is tough to enjoy any golf experience fully (in my opinion).

Aerated greens

We did not see a aeration warning before we booked! Would not have played the greens were coverd in sand! I play once a week and usually book thru Golfnow, the course said it was Golfnow’s fault, hopefully I can get a coupon or something to make up for it.

Fun Course; Bad COVID Precautions

First the bad, none of the staff in the clubhouse was wearing a mask even though there were signs on the door stating that masks were required. This included the man at the register and the woman at the grill/snack bar.

Now for the good, Oak Valley is a really fun layout which was in very good shape for late March and especially considering there had been some rain recently. The greens were perfect, a little firm with a smooth and true roll. The fairways were as good as they can be for this time of year and although they looked muddy from a distance were not and obviously had drained quite well from the recent rains. The only knock on the course itself is many of the par 4s are a bit repetitive particularly on the front. Also wished there had been some mixed tees advertised on the scorecard, the white tees felt too short but the blue felt too long so we played the whites. Didn't realize until about halfway through there were mixed tees because they were not on the scorecard.

Overall a fun layout that isn't too challenging but has some interesting features in really good shape.
