Oak Hollow Golf Course
Tough course with wonderful features
Loved the Pete Dye design. Greens played very slow. Staff not so great.

Better than expected
Considering fairway conditions of other courses in the area, this one far exceeded expectations. Still a few dead spots, but overall in good condition. Greens slower than others, but are true. As in a prior review, appears several disregard repairing their ball marks on the greens. Great design and views. Recommend playing blue tees to make the course a little more of a challenge and use more of your clubs.

I always enjoy my round at Oak Hollow
The fairways are recovering nicely from the winter kill with only a few patches of dead areas here and there. Critical landing areas in the fairways were in good condition. My friend and I walked 9 and got around quickly which was expected for a late afternoon round.
I have played Oak Hollow many times and I love the layout and the course stays well maintained year round. My issue is with the greens. How do I accurately describe the greens during my last few rounds? Furry, slow as molasses, and pock marked like the surface of the moon. Please, please speed up the greens!
I'm not saying I don't enjoy my rounds at the course, but the green speeds are WAY, WAY TOO SLOW. Also, apparently everyone forgets how to fix their ball marks when they play here. Obviously, firmer greens would help this situation too.
Play the course; it's fantastic. Just remember to give the ball a little more with the putter than you think is necessary.

Good course, poor customer service
I have played here once before the week prior and it was and enjoyable experience. This time was different. I checked in and went out as a single. After 3 groups politely let me play through in 9 holes I started number 10 on the same tee as a foursome. After playing behind them for a hole and a half and them not let me play through I patiently waited on the ranger to come around and tell them to let me go. After another hole behind them and no sign of a ranger I decided to turn around and go home. As I drove my cart past the clubhouse I looked to my left and saw a tent with 3 carts underneath it. Two saying player assistant and one saying start. I guess basking in the sun is more important than pace of play. Sorry to say I won't be back.

The course was in good condition and shape for the type of weather we have had in the last couple of months.

Good course but terrible pace of play.
I had a tee time at 208 pm. Then the staff said a group played back 9 to begin with So the staff
bypass that group front of us. I mentioned that we had 208 pm tee time. And when that group get to the 2nd hole, that 4 some split into 2 some. Took us to finish a round of golf in 5 hours and half!

excellent design in need of TLC
As noted by others, this course has an excellent routing around the lake. However, the fairways are patchy at best. The greens are in better shape but few people bother to fix their ball marks. I repaired 3-4 on each green and couldn't put a dent in their numbers. All in all though for the price this is an excellent value.

I have played here several times. I enjoy the layout of the course. Course in good shape considering many in the area suffered much winter damage. Greens were in good shape but too slow.
