Played Oakcreek on 3/23/21. The Golf course was in excellent shape. I was the cold week and it snowed on us on the par 3 number 4. Challenging holes and every shot is scenic. Rough is not bad and traps are fluffy. Would love to play it more if I lived closer. If your a single player its $125 but if you use their internet special if you have 2 golfers its only $97.50 per golfer. Well worth the rate either way! Enjoy an I cannot wait to be back

Played here on Black Friday 2020 on an cool but sunny day of about 60 degrees, minimal wind, on a 10:40am tee time using the Golf Moose deal with my father in-law. I enjoy this course the more I play it and today only added to the enjoyment factor. Course was in excellent shape and the greens here were some of the best I have seen (condition-wise) since Pasatiempo and Spyglass in August. Overall the course is in great shape and with the GM deal until the end of the year, it's the time to play.
Tee boxes: Decent shape but the blue tee boxes here are generally chewed up some as they receive the most play at ~6200 yards. They weren't awful, but more than a few tees, especially the par 3's, were beat up.
Fairways: Excellent shape. Rarely a bad lie, good true roll, visually pleasing to the eye, divots fixed by most golfers, a pleasure to hit from.
Rough: Fairly long and penal, at times what hurt more than the length/thickness of the rough is the fact it is riddled with leaves from a long fall in tree lined fairways. Overall though, if you know when to take your medicine, it's not going to kill your game.
Sand: Desert sand just isn't for me. Bunkers here rarely have tons of sand in them and when they do it's red rock dirt; compact, often wet, and not fun to hit out of.
Greens: The absolute highlight of the round. They were stunning to look at and far more jaw-dropping to putt on. I'm no judge of stimp, but they rolled quickly and breaks were at times beyond tricky! I can't count how many three-putts there were this day.
ETC: Facilities operating at Sedona-level COVID regulations, not AZ level...which is to say, they are actually using facemasks in the pro shop, at the cart collection area, etc. Staff was all friendly. Carts have no GPS but DO have club wash, good power. No on-course water, so make sure to stock up beforehand. Beverage cart came around 3 times; no food beyond basic granola bars and such. Grill does appear to be open and the front 9 does end in a place where you can easily go and pick up before the 10th tee. Fun and interesting layout, especially in the back 9. Highly recommend!
