To complete the family we have a 9 Hole Pitch and Putt, a 40 Bay Floodlit Driving Range with top quality range balls and a large Putting Green.

Greens had all been treated two days ago but the ball still ran true if a little slowly.
This course has some bog standard holes but there are several very tricky holes with strategically situated trees. A gulley is in evidence on many holes which promotes thought as to where the next shot should be played from. Pleasant clubhouse with the usual standard menu

Good parkland track

It's been about 10 years since I played Delapre, I remembered it being a decent layout but not in the best condition, well it's changed in the last 10 years, it's still a decent layout, but now it's in fantastic condition.
The greens have recently been hollow tined & heavily sanded, but you can see underneath that they are in fantastic condition & even heavily sanded they are pretty quick.
It's a fair test of all levels of golfer, quite open, not thick rough, some nice tree lined holes, a brook on a few holes & some long par 3's
It's not expensive& definitely worth a round of you're in the area.

Good clubhouse/facilities, food and range is worth a visit, the oaks 18 was unfortunately disappointing, the course was generally unkept, greens were very poor standard, tee boxes and fairways were too long, alot of litter about and bins overflowing. Its a shame because it did seem to be improving but is now going downhill, would expect a better standard for the money charged.

Recently updated drainage and club house

The course is in great spring condition and continues to offer a challenge for all golfers at a price that’s one of the best in the county. Greens don’t look too challenging but there are subtle changes to watch for.

Good value for money course (The Oaks) Albeit ground keeping a bit sub

A great course to play if your looking for a cheaper 18.

Mostly flat across all the course except for the back 9 where a few holes are up and down.

Nice and open without much in the way of obstacles - The Willows on the 16th are the only real problem that can cause a golfer to loose a number of shots if they get dragged in.

Alot of investment has been put in at the clubhouse. Nice veranda overlooking the practice green. Great driving range with digital Virtual Ball Seeker giving you stats on your drives. Only downside is the toilets. They are very drab and in need of renovating.

My only real gripe with the course is the quality of the grounds keeping. Alot of the tees are poorly tended. Alot of missing lawn. Divots strewn across the floor and not replaced quickly or at all. Dead patches. Fairways are respectable and the mid rough is OK. Heavy rough doesn't appear to get any attention. Greens are poor. Quite alot of GUR (animal damage) and pitch marked heavily. Playing after spells of Heavy rain (even after several days) usually mean the greens are water logged. Never seen to get spiked. Odd bits are to be expected on any course, but seems to be a regular thing here.

Overall a good course to play. But don't expect amazing conditions most of the year. Good for local players but probably wouldn't travel far to play here.

Good course

Haven't played here for about 1o yrs, even though it's on my doorstep

Course was in great condition, albeit a couple of the green were in need of a bit of repair - great fairways and some challenging holes.

Only disappointment was the speed of play and the members not willing to let me (as a single) through. It was painfully slow and there was a notice that said I should be at X hole in 40 mins.....it had taken me 60!.
Furthermore, on one hole there was a group on the fairway, one on the tee, and another waiting as I arrived. Each of the two groups turned to me, looked at each other and simple said 'it's a bit slow today'.....I would go back, but would need to pick my time better

Good par 3

Good par 3 course, with mixture of distances and hills making holes play longer/shorter. No bunkers (there used to be but they were never properly maintained). Greens are small and challenging, making par scores tough if you're off target with your tee shot. Winter mats are played off all year round. Expect a slow round in school holidays!

Considering there are not many par 3 courses in county (I can only recall 1 other at Brampton Heath), it's good they've kept it going.

First time playing The Oaks

Used the range and short game facilities since I moved here in 2005. First time playing an actual round on The Oaks. Overall a tidy challenging track, that unfortunately had some damage to f/ways and greens and a couple of tee boxes we're off Astro turf. But can't complain. First round since February and turned in 91/63 & 42 points. I?ll definitely be back.

Good pace of play, but some of the greens need better repairs. Fairways are good, but you can tell it is a municipal course.
