OAKS NATIONAL GOLF CLUB (407) 483-3700
Florida Golf Course Review
Oaks National Golf Club (formerly Kissimmee Oaks) is regarded as one of the best value golf experiences in the resort area. This course and clubhouse facilities underwent
extensive renovations several years ago, and presents golfers with convenient location and exceptional playing conditions. Century old oaks and crystalline ponds garnish the
property, providing an aesthetically pleasing golf environment.
The design is built on 135 acres and features ample fairways and well bunkered green complexes that are mildly sloped but not undulating. Land on these surfaces in regulation,
and birdies can be had. Room greenside also allows golfers to recover form slightly offline approaches. Water comes into play on 15 holes, with wood retaining walls are
repeatedly featured near the greenside hazards. Wildlife including eagles, osprey, turtle, beaver and cranes are plentiful. Approximately 36 soft sand bunkers are situated near the
putting surfaces or are strategically places near the landing zones on the fairways.
The course meanders through an upscale residential community, with tropical foliage including pampas and palms dotting the landscape. On property is a targeted grass range,
2 putting greens plus two practice bunkers. The clubhouse features a pro shop, locker rooms with showers for men and women, and a snack area with hot and cold sandwiches
and beverages. Outing facilities can accommodate a full group of 144 players.
There are four sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring 6884 yards/131 slope, 6487 yards/128 slope, 5928 yards/123 slope and 5021 yards with a slope of 110
from the forward sets. The yardages are evenly dispersed to allow all golfers to choose a set that matches their game - creating a fair challenge for all levels of players. Sprinkler
heads are measured to the center of the green, and yardage blocks are provided on the fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards, with 150 yard stakes also doubling as directional
devices. A pin placement sheet mounted on each cart indicates the day's hole locations, and the ParView GPS is standard on all carts. Holes four though 7 are perhaps the most
interesting of the layout, with ponds and wetlands providing natural beauty and a formidable challenge.
We recommend a round at Oaks National without reservation. Prices are quite affordable and the course is conveniently located near many of the area's top hotels and attractions.
