Oak Park is a very nice 18 hole course which also has a 3200 yard 9 hole course. The main course is hilly in places and most holes have very tight tree-lined fairway’s which were in excellent condition as well as the greens, considering how good the fairway’s and greens were the tees were a little bit of a disappointment and could have been better.
There is some sort of water feature or ditch on nearly every hole so careful placement of your tee shots are required for good scoring.
Shendish Manor is a nice tree-lined, if a little short, course, the trees and woodland around this course are mature and come into play on quite a few holes. Don’t remember seeing any water on the course and a few of the par 4′s are very reachable from the tee.
This course is a good one to play if you are a high handicapper as most of the holes are a bit on the short side in length, mind you the greens are very tough to putt on. They were in good condition and the ball rolls well on them but they are certainly not flat, Tony had nine birdie putts in his round and did not make one of them.
