This is late, but I wanted to back up and point you to Caligolfer1031’s 3/10 review of the course from our match play there vs. Greg and Alex on Sunday.

The Review

Golf Playing Conditions 6.40 GOOD
Golf Playing Conditions 6.40 GOOD

I generally agree with all his observations with only a couple of minor additions. He mentioned minor issues with uneven tees. The 14th definitely required you to find the peak of the hump to tee your ball but, otherwise I wasn’t conscious of any issues with the other teeing grounds, so that may be different levels of discrimination. Maybe I was preoccupied with how badly I was driving the ball, but that was all me.

He also mentioned the bunkers and he was completely accurate. I would only add as someone who has played there numerous times before, that the lack of soft sand is, unfortunately, normal and expected at Oak Quarry once you’ve been there.

I actually made decent or better shots out of a couple of firm fairway bunkers and a good green side bunker shot on the 14th hole, which did have adequate sand in it. I seem to have a knack for picking the ball in the firmer ones so, again a subjective response and not a contradiction to Gregs review, which I thought was excellent.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I always love getting out to Oak Quarry and thought the conditions were very good with no surprises based on my previous experience there. Really stunk up the place with my game, but truly enjoyed the company of the the two Gregs and Alex. Everyone was fun to play with and on an even keel regardless of how their game was going, including the luckiest drive I’ve ever seen in my life. After the expectation of a rainy day didn’t come to fruition, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Good times.
