Greta Deal and Great Course A couple friends and I found great deal on Golfnow and decided to make the drive out to Harvard. Oak Grove was well worth it. The course was in spectacular shape for late October. It is a long course but open where it needs to be which makes it fair. The front plays long but they offer 5 sets of tees so you can play it at a yardage that suits your game. Other than being a hike, the course is great! My friends and I are definitely planning on getting out there again. October 29, 2013
Fantastic Course Worth the drive! Incredible course, greens and fairways are absolutely perfect. They also have wild turkeys roaming the course. Really nice time playing the course and enjoying the scenery. October 22, 2013
Hubris Cards A Snowman You're index is a 10 and you look at the score card and think... 6600 from the Championship tees... I can handle that. WRONG, especially if it's your first time here. So play from the whites/tournament tees unless you're carding less than a 10 on your index. The greens feel like you are walking on a sponge and are fantastic (11.5 on the meter). The best I've played on this year. The holes were cut to perfection. I had one putt where half of my ball was over the cup and it still failed to fall. My playing partner couldn't stop raving about the course. When you're done enjoy a cold one with a view of the 6th fairway and the monserous tree that sits right in the middle of it and try not to play the course again... I dare you. Only one knock... why the sewer covers in the middle of the 15th fairway? It's like a pimple on your high school sweethearts face the night of prom (I never went to prom). Play this course.

Great Layout And Tees for All Levels While over an hour drive from my house, I always find Oak Grove a very good test of golf. You should definitely choose the proper tees. The first 2 holes are very long for the average golfer from the Blue tees 15 or over should move up). Definitely need to manage the course properly. Conditions were excellent and pace was fast. Highly reccomend this course. September 30, 2013
Very Nice Course!!! The weather was not perfect that morning because it rained the night before and into the morning but it made the round much more enjoyable between myself and another friend since there were hardly anyone out there and we were very surprised how dry the golf course considering all the rain we had! By the time we got there, the course was partly soaked especially part of the fairways but was very surprise that the greens were very dry. Excellent drainage system on all the greens!!! The course is well maintained and in excellent condition!!! Very beautiful and some holes are very challenging especially the 11th hole! There was only one staff at that time and he was very helpful. I'm glad I was not granted a rain check because I called prior to going there to both the golf course and golfnow if we can be excused that morning because of the rain storm that was going on where we live. I live about an hour away from the course and I'm glad my request was not granted because it turned out to be a beautiful day and we had the course almost to ourselves!!! Too bad this course is way away from us or I will keep coming back!!! Absolutely recommend this course!!! September 20, 2013
long and tough great course ,bring your range finder or buy a yardage book, 1st time play up one tee box September 19, 2013
Excellent, challenging but fair. A first class venue. Oak Grove is a real treat to play. Why? Because it is a great lay out in excellent shape. Beautiful scenery: mature trees, hills, tall grass prairie land, a covered bridge, ponds and lots of wildlife like Red Tail hawks, deer and wild turkeys. Fairways are well bunkered but generous. Greens are good sized and pretty quick. Clubhouse has a bar and restaurant that serves typical 19th hole chow. You've got to play this course, you will know what it's like to play a first class private club. September 12, 2013
worth the drive Very challenging with errant shots dissappearing into fescue areas Faster than average sloping greens. Clubhouse not anything special but staff was extremely friendly. September 10, 2013
