Type Resort

Length 6786 yards
Slope 128
Rating 71.7

The Oaks Golf Course at Christmas Mountain Village was carefully carved from the rolling hills of Wisconsin Dells. The Oaks is the 18-hole course and it is joined by the nine-hole Pines Course. The names of both courses are indicative of the mature woodland landscape you will find on each. The championship Oaks is a challenging but straightforward layout. You can play it well the first time you play it, so long as you are able to keep it in the short grass. Strategically placed sand traps come into play along many of the greens and there are water hazards on four holes. One of the most memorable holes is the 14th, an uphill par 4 that has three towering oak trees on the left side of the fairway that cause a blind shot to the green.

Fun Course

We really enjoyed the course. It was in great shape, had good length (played from the blue tees) and the layout was beautiful and really fun to play.

Fun and challenging

We stayed a few days at the Timbers area and invited another couple to join us for golf on Labor Day. The course was in excellent condition for the time of year and it's well-cared-for course. Some huge elevations and huge greens. It was fun to play. The back-to-back par 5s on the back nine flew us away. Good par 3s along the way, too.

Nice track in excellent shape

Until today I had not played Christmas Mountain for about 10 years. In the last two years I heard from several friends who have played it that the course conditions were not good; and I wanted to see it for myself. Apparently they hired a new superintendent this year, and whatever problems they had were turned around 100%. I found the tees, fairways and greens to be in consistently excellent condition. The rough was cut very precisely and consistently throughout the course. There are a few brown patches, but it has been dry lately and the fairways were still soft. They are doing some fixes in various places so I would think they will continue to make improvements, but there aren't any issues anywhere in play. They have lost or otherwise removed a couple dozen trees, and they have also removed a number of sand traps, presumably to help maintain good pace. The rough has not grown into the former traps yet, but this is not a serious problem.

Regarding the layout, it is different than most and quite interesting. The front nine has a lot of right to left holes and is pretty challenging even from the white tees. The back plays shorter from the whites, and is more of a target course but provides several good birdie opportunities even if you don't hit the ball real long.

They did not have a starter or beverage cart today. The clubhouse staff was extremely friendly and helpful. And Mulligans is a great bar with good food and they have some outside seating options. Overall Christmas Mountain is a great course and a very good value compared to other options the Dells area.

Very Nice - Much improved conditions

The fairways and greens were in wonderful condition. Played there 2 years ago and can tell they have put a lot of work into improving the course. A GREAT experience. Greens rolled true, traps were well maintained, and the "trip through the woods" on the back 9 is challenging.

Christmas Mountain Village

Christmas ‘Mountain Village has come a long ways in the past couple of years. Their greens are much improved and reducing the number of traps has speeded up play.

Water on the Green

While walking off the green on hole 6 the water came on. I made it off in time so didn’t get wet. The water came on at the same time on hole 7 green and stayed on for approximately 30 minutes. This created a bit of a line of golfers. The pro shop staff were kind and explained the situation as a mechanical issue.

Front 9

I only had time to play the front 9. My only real complaint is that the greens were very sandy. Made putting extremely difficult. There are some nice challenging holes. I went in the early afternoon and was able to play at the pace I wanted.
