This course was built on land that was formerly an orange grove. The terrain is rolling, requiring many uphill shots to elevated greens and downhill shots from elevated tees. The fairways are open with the exception of eucalyptus trees on holes #13, 14 and 18. There are numerous sand bunkers on the fairways and around the greens, which become the major hazard to avoid. Many holes play right-to-left off the tees, and three of the par 3's have bowl-shaped greens. The other par 3, hole #12, is a very pretty hole that plays 173 yards from the championship tees and is protected by a lake on the right side. Water also comes into play on hole #9, a 500-yard, par 5, known as "Fortitude." This hole requires a player to place the second shot to the left to avoid a large lake that runs along the right edge of the fairway up to the green. There are many mounds on the course and around the greens which can be used to stop your ball or be used to direct the ball to the green. The greens are very large with some undulation and tiers. The course uses the DME electronic distance system which is a hand-held device that gives you the correct yardage from where you stand to the flag. The course provides a tee location sheet each day and yardage books can be purchased from the pro shop. There are reduced green fees available for Monday and Tuesday. The weekday green fee rates shown are for Wednesday and Thursday. Fridays green fees are the same as weekend fees. Also, seniors are allowed a special green fee rate of about half the normal rate Monday through Thursday mornings.

|I've played Oak Creek 3 times in 5 years, and it has NEVER been in bad shape! I wish the maintenance staff would spend a few months at rancho because they REALLY know how to keep a golf course healthy! The layout is superb, and can be a LOT of fun for golfers of any skill level. If you're playing from the tips, and can get to the 18th green in two shots (456 yard par 4), then you've probably hit your best shots of the day.|
