For the cost conscious player
Course had some challenging holes, hidden pins, water, narrow fairways. Greens were extremely hard and fast and seldom held a chip. Nice Spanish moss covered oaks. Course could be beautiful with some money put into it.

Picturesque and Challenging
This was the second time that I played this course. The course is delightful, and packed with interesting challenges.
The only negative feature encountered was the attitude of the starter. We arrived about 15 minutes early, and proceeded to the waiting area for the first tee. We were rudely and loudly approached by the starter who questioned, "What are you doing?". We explained that we were just getting into position so that when we were given the nod, we would be ready to proceed to the tee.
The starter, shaking his head in disgust, then advised us that we are golfnow people, and golfnow people do not, under any circumstance, proceed to the tee prior to their start time. He held up a cell phone that displayed the time. He then stated, "Does this clock not depict such and such a time?"
Actually, my foursome and another group were embarrassed for him. His behavior was far from appropriate.
It's been my experience that a starter's role is to facilitate timely play, not berate the players!
In spite of the starter's unprofessional representation of Water Oak, I would recommend this course!

This hilly, tree lined course featuring, tight parallel fairways divided by tall oaks presents some challenging holes. No matter what skill level you play at you will still have to think your way around this track. The main drawback of this course is poor maintenance, particularly on fairways. For this reason, I recommend this course if you can get on for under $20.00.

Good mix of hills, trees, and water
The course is pretty tight. You have to make good shots. I enjoy the hills and the water challenged

Rolling terrain with some challenging water
Tree-lined fairways with overhanging limbs means you better hit straight. Accuracy beats length on most holes. You'll like the shaded porch and cold beer.

Ok in the Fairways
The course was not overly long and several of the holes were pretty tight with some over water. That was all fine. If the ball was hit into the rough, there was a good chance it would be lying on bare ground. I know that I should not be rewarded for hitting it into the rough but I think there should be something to hit off of. The main downsides were that many of the holes are so close together that there was some danger in being hit by a ball. Some areas were protected by fences but others were not. The other downside is that there are some holes on which you can't tell when the group in front of you has hit their second shots and are clear for you to hit your drives. We had to ride up the fairways a few times to be safe. Small greens but they were in pretty good shape.
