Shot maker's course, greens somewhat difficult to read - grain in Bermuda is prominant. Not too long, but if you don't hit it where you should - you pay the price. Best condition of any course I've played this year.

Oak Ridge is a very hilly layout. It presents quite a challenge to the average golfer. It is not overly long, but it forces you to use every club in the bag. Beautiful views and layout. Worth trying.
