Golf Course Review Oakcreek Country Club Sedona Arizona

Reviewed by: sbarajasjr, San Diego
Played here today (5/10) on a wonderfully sunny and breezy Mothers Day 2020 on an 8:30AM tee-time. COVID-19 precautions were in place at the course (clubhouse closed, grill take-out only, no cart attendant, pool noodle in cup [flag in], and no rakes/ball washers/coolers, though carts were available with confirmation of same household allowing shared carts. The golfers on the other hand didn’t seem to concerned about social distancing; c’est la vie on that. Course, as it was the first time I played, was in excellent early Spring shape with amazing views of the red rocks making this the perfect setting for golf.

The Review

Golf Playing Conditions 7.85 GREAT
Golf Playing Conditions 7.85 GREAT

Tee boxes: Good shape with minimal un-level turf. No real issues from the blue tees.

Fairways: Excellent shape, especially considering you have no mix in carts. They were a wonderfully bold forest green with excellent coverage, good roll, and almost no bad lies.

Rough: Penal, no two ways about it. There were areas under the large trees that just grabbed your club hard and never let go. Take your medicine.

Bunkers: Only in one and got out fine. Visually the sand matches the red hues on the rocks that shadow the course from the north. No rakes due to COVID.

Greens: The certain highlight on a great day. They rolled true but weren’t punishing. There were divot marks fixed everywhere and guys were doing the favor of fixing them all over. A pleasure to putt and try to read the breaks.

ETC: A wonderful course that warrants a visit when in Sedona. The Sedona Golf Resort and Seven Canyons get all the glory, but this course is actually WAY closer to the red rocks on more than a few holes (including the amazing 13th hole where you could almost touch the rocks).

The Final Thought

This place is generally in amazing shape and the pace is always great at just about 4 hours. Highly recommend.
