Review for Oakland Hills (South)

Reviewer Score:


Amazing course and as long as you want it. The rough is a 1/2 shot penalty and the Rees Jones fairways bunkers can be a full shot penalty. The subtle breaks on the greens are confounding, especially when they roll them to 12 feet. It is surprising how difficult the course is when it is all right in front of you. You really feel the history of the club with the giant clubhouse in view on many holes, especially on 9 and 18. Looking forward to the renovation which should make the fairway bunkers more playable create new pin positions on the new greens. Downside - the greens will likely not hold for a few years. Lately, I prefer the underrated North Course which underwent a modest renovation a few years back. For me, plenty challenging and quicker rounds.
