Played Oak Quarry for the first time on Sunday, March 10 as part of the GK match play. Had a blast with Kevin, Greg and Alex. With a chance of rain in the forecast we were hoping to get through 18 before the rain, which never materialized and was a chilly partly cloudy beautiful day. After reading recent reviews I went in with low expectations condition wise, but for layout and fun I had high expectations and those expectations were met. Good course management and smart play is needed on this course to score well.
Tees - Mostly good coverage, but many are not level.
Fairways - A mixed bag of conditions. From thin hard fairways to more lush fairways to some that had weeds growing. Near the greens the fairways were awesome, great coverage and very green. The entire course needs to look like this. In other words, very inconsistent.
Rough - Very nice shape. Lush and penalizing as rough should be.
Bunkers - Very poor shape! The fairway bunkers have little to no sand in them and there is really no need to rake them as no foot prints are made. In fact I had a tee ball hit a bunker on the fly and take a huge bounce up and out of the bunker. The greenside bunkers are slightly better, with a thin layer of sand with a hard underneath. Many sand shots from our group were bladed to the other side of the greens as our wedges would bounce off the hard bottom. I did see one trap that had a good layer of sand, so MAYBE they are in the process of adding sand. I will give them the benefit of the doubt and blame the rain on the bunker conditioning.
Greens - Didn't look great (many different shades of green), but for the most part they putted nicely. We did encounter a few bumps here and there, but not too terribly bad. They were firm and not many ball marks to be found.
Customer service was good and friendly, we did not see a beverage cart all day, not sure if one was out there.
Overall I really enjoyed myself and can't wait to go back so I can figure this place out.» Close
