Course Reviews


I played this course today as part of the Western Peidmont Srs group. I was not impressed. There was a LOT of dead grass and brown spots all over the course. The greens however were in verygood shape..and ran very true! In some cases entire fairways were dirt. As one of my playing partners said....they could have at least seeded with some winter rye and let the green fill in!! I will give them some credit...there was some sod in some places..but overall...it needed some filling in with grass! There was one hole (Par 5) I think it was number 2...where you had to hit a short iron..then a 3 or 5 wood for your second shot...and then a wedge to pitch in. A creek was there to gobble up your tee shot if you misjudged your distance. I didn;t like the hole! There was a long Par 4 on the back with a creek running longitudinally through the fair way. Its a stupid hole..even if I did Par it! Lots of elevation changes with long up hill Par 3s and downhill Par 3s. The fairways that had grass weren;t bad. The scenery was nice...and the clubhouse was great. I hear they have some financial challenges which may be part of the problem with the maintenance. Its not a course I would rush back to..

Certainly the nicest course in the immediate area. If you want to play decent golf in the wilkes/alexander area play here or at Brushy Mountain. This place is more scenic and provides a more difficult test of golf but at 50 bucks its a little pricey too. If you play a decent amount of golf its worth knowing that greens here are head and shoulders above anywhere else in the area. They have a restaurant that I've never seen open and a pretty nice bar that I've never seen closed. Service was good and all the members seemed nice enough to me. Its supposed to be a private course but if you've got the 50$ you can get on. This isnt the nicest course I've laid down that kind of coin for but it certainly isnt the worst either. If youve got the cash to throw around this is the areas top course. As far as playable courses in the surrounding Ashe and Watauga areas go this is still probably the nicest. Its a better value than the Boone country club which provides a lesser test of golf at a similar price. However, Id check out Mountain Aire in Ashe if you dont mind the drive, its almost as nice and at a little cheaper price its probably a better overall value. If youre a beginning golfer dont opt for these course, you just wont get your moneys worth. For the novice I'd recommend Rock Creek. Everyone has fun at the Rock.

Have played this course several times during recent years and always find the same problems. Poor conditions, slow play, and crude members continue to plague this club. This club seems determined to ruin the tees and fringes with continuous overseeding.

Just played in the member/guest at this cours. This place has a significant image problem because of the raucus and crude membership. This year a staff member got drunk during the event and this resulted in her being involved in some rather vulger activities. I understand that she has been terminated for her behavior. Though her actions cannot be excused, I must admit that many members were actually encouraging her actions. Based on this organization's reputation, I should not have been surprised at what happened.

Unknown Gem

This course demonstrates the best in Western North Carolina foothills golf! Perfect bent grass greens, tight tree-lined bermuda fairways and strategicly placed water hazards make Oakwoods Country Club a true test for all caliber of golfers.
The view of the Brushy Mts from the Club House porch while sipping a beverage from the friendly bar staff is not to be missed!
