Like to have a good time on the course and like playing with others that take the game serious, but not so serious that they miss having a good time.

Played on Monday, September 2nd. Tee'd off at Noon and PoP was 4:45, not bad for a holiday, with 2 and 3's going out. Chevelle's review is spot on. The one thing I will add is that there are a few fairways that show signs of recent punching (does not effect play) and the rough is growing back from recent punching or cutting (can effect lie). Fixed 4-6 ball marks on every green, otherwise they are in very good shape. The fairways are firm and you do get extra rollout.
Can be a tough course if not hitting it straight off the tee. Hole 16 is a beast of a tee shot is not a longish hitter. Saw the cart girl several times. One downfall about this course is that if you are looking for a bite to eat at the turn, you are out of luck because there is no turn, the clubhouse is not near any tee except number one. So eat before you tee off. Staff is always nice here. I will be back after the greens are healed from the upcoming punching.» Close

Played on Saturday with a GN tee time @ 11:00 for $40 with cart, not bad for a Saturday.. When I arrived they asked if I was willing to go out earlier, so I said yes and they told me I was on the tee. I arrived on the tee in a panic and grabbed a ball, tee and my driver and took a quick swing as other groups were waiting for me to get going. Wasn't able to get out of the play quick mode until after the 2nd hole. This was only my 2nd time playing this course and the last time was Christmas Day 2017, so memory wasn't working all that well. The course was in fine shape. Decent GPS on the carts.
Layout - Straight forward layout, with a few doglegs to make things interseting. Make sure you stay to the right on your drive, as trees can interfere with the second shot.
Tees - Mostly good, with the par threes chewed up like most par threes are, and a few tee boxes were slighty unlevel.
Faiways - Very good lies all day, very green and lush. The only thing I have to say about the fairways is the amount of goose droppings, they are evrywhere and these are equal opportunity geese, they drop on fairways that have lakes and don't have any water in site. Walking this course can get a little messy.
Greens - Good shape and rolled good, but a little slow for my taste. Down hill putts still have to be given a little thump to get the ball to the hole. Not too many unrepaired ball marks on this day.
Rough - thin and not very penal.
Bunkers - Good sand in all bunkers that I was in. Fairway bunkers were firm like a fairway bunker should be, but still had enough sand that a rake was needed. Greenside bunkers were in good shape and the only problems that I came upon was the bunk not raked very well. Not the courses fault. Not the best sand in the world, but very playable none the least.
Pace of play was at 4.5 hours and we waited on most shots. Beautiful day out with a nice breeze. I look forward to coming back.» Close

Played yesterday afternoon, told the boss I had an appointment with Dr. Green. Got a deal on GN for $13 w/cart, and I may have paid too much. Check in was easy as I think we may have been the only ones on the course.
The conditions may be poor at best. Have been here many times and though the conditions have never been great, this time they are almost unplayable.
Tees - Chewed up and unlevel. A few are hard as a rock and difficult to get a tee in the ground.
Fairways - Dryed out hard pan. If your lucky enough to find a patch of grass, you have been blessed by the golfing gods. The ball bounces all over the place, so a drive in the fairway can end up OB.
Rough, some spots hard pan, others long thick and difficult to hit out of.
Bunkers - Not a grain of sand in any bunker, but ironicly there are rakes in the traps, but they are so hard packed that a rake in not needed.
Greens - Actually are in very good shape, rolled great with a medium/fast speed. A pleasure to putt on. They are soft enough to hold a shot with ease.
On the way home I saw a billboard for some new housing they are building on the back nine which shows a lush green golf course (photoshop is alive and well).
With the conditions as bad as they are I will will not be back nor even recommend it to my worst enemies.
This could be a fun course to play as the course does have a lot of personallity. But it needs to be dug up and replanted. If you have a bad back, it's going to take a beating and there are a lot of bumps and holes to make the cart jar your back.» Close

First time playing Oak Creek and absolutely loved it. Played along with Nick, Larry and Kong and I want to thank the guys for a really fun round. Also, thanks to Oak Creek for having us and to Johnny for setting this up.
Not much I can add to the previous reviews on conditions.
Layout - FANTASTIC. So much fun and it makes you think. My favorite part of the course.
Greens - the best I have putted on in a long time. Did have to repair a few ball marks from morning rounds, but not too bad.
Fairways - The ball sat us nicely, and was a pleasure to play from.
Rough - Could be very thick and penal, or could be a little thin. Even had a hard time finding a florescent orange ball in the thick stuff. We don't get that thick rough very often in So Cal so hitting out of it took some good guess work.
Bunkers - Nice fluffy sand, just ask Nick about his plugged shot in the face a fairway bunker. The greenside bunker on 16 is perplexing, it looks like it's part of the waste area that runs down the left side of the fairway, BUT it had a rake in it and like I said, it was right next to the green. Was it a bunker or waste area.
Tee boxes - Mostly really nice, but towards the end of the day a few were seeing some wear and tear.
Customer Service - Very good friendly staff, from the guys in the golf shop, to the cart attendants to the beverage cart girl.
I would play here a lot more often for the right price. Normal rack rate is a little steep for this cheap dutchman, but If I can find a deal I will be back.
One more thing, the Reuben sandwich in the bar/grill is fantastic. One of the best I have ever had.» Close
