Oak Glen Course Reviews


Reviewed by: Jim Gaffke - Vadnais Heights, MN. Jim shoots in the 80s.
Review Summary: I personally love this course and always look forward to coming back and playing. My only gripes are minor and not really issues. The facility is great, they have a nice mini 9 to play and it's usually in great condition. This course demands that you bring your "A" game. Bring a few extra golf balls, unless the ones you have float or have homing devices on them. The back nine can wear you down and is narrow.
Conditions: I have played the course 10 or so times and always found things done right. I have no issues.
Scenery: No much for scenery, the course wanders through a few neighborhoods and rolls through the hills and valleys.
Layout: Great layout! I love it. My only issue is hole #18 in relation to the homes on the left and the driving range down the middle. I have hit a few homes (awesome BANG), but losing a ball in the driving range is just unacceptable and it is very easy to do. Holes 1, 4, 10, 11, and 16 are AWESOME...
Services: AWESOME.....best in the Twin Cities--bar none!
