Oake Manor Golf Club is set in lovely Somerset countryside and the course is genuinely memorable. The 15th, called Waterfall, is perhaps the club’s signature hole which is a cracking risk-and-reward par five to a green surrounded by water.
Visited Oake Manor as part of a golf weekend in Somerset, with 20 of us enjoying the South West sunshine. Oake Manor was our 2nd destination, and it was as we had thought. The lay out is a fairly new style course, almost American style with water hazards in/around most holes. It was challenging in that it had you thinking about positioning, not the most taxing, but an enjoyable round of golf
Club were very helpful in bookings and lovely clubhouse and seating area on the 18th to watch your team mates finish their rounds enjoying a local cider or two.
From a golf perspective, good course, not too difficult, but water makes you think about positioning. Greens were true and not massively testing but not flat and boring by any means. Fairways in great condition, stick to those and there’s a score to be had.. lots of hazards elsewhere
A great value for money course, with some interesting holes, would recommend a visit.
Oake Manor is a modern style course with quite a few lakes and streams which seem to present most of the hazards. I have played Oake probably three times now (the last being inMay 2019) and the course is generally in reasonable condition. It is quite a short course (6149 yards off the white) and certainly plays better/more interesting off the white than the yellow tees. With generous fairways, only three par 4's over 400 yards and three shortish par 5's there is a score to be made. I find the front nine more interesting than the back and there are a number of good holes where you do have to think your way around and across the water hazards
