I have golfed at Oak Meadows for many years and I was extremely disappointed. When we arrived, we found out that they are planning to renovate the course next year but at this time it is definitely not worth the price they are charging. The greens are in terrible condition and fairways are already burning out. Also, the ruff has large clumps of grass laying every where. The clubhouse burned down several years ago and nothing has been done to replace at this time.

Overall a decent county course. Greens need a lot more water, as well played shots were not holding the surface.

Other than more than normal amount of mosquitoes, I would play this course again. Worth the fees. Some challenging holes, especially the par 3 ninth hole, make this a fun course!

Con: coures does not hold water well. If it rains heavy, possible water on fairways 3, 5, 10, 15. One time, fish in the fairway
