Oaks Golf Course at Christmas Mountain Village
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.

Second time played
I played this course last month and rated it as fair. I was very impressed with the improvements that have been made. While there are still some tee boxes that need work, you can see the efforts that have been made.
I am glad we gave the course another try. It was a pleasure playing it this time and I will be back.

This course is making some major improvements. They are doing drainage work and removing some traps and improving existing ones.
Big time disappointed!!
Played this course on June 29th of 2019 and was absolutely the worst experience I’ve had golfing... the course is under massive repair and sprinklers were running almost on every other hole... not only do you have to fight the sprinkler systems out there but then the greens on some of the holes were just absolutely awful condition... no takes to take the sand if you hit in one. No beer cart lady although I was told they had one they lied! 90* outside and not a drop of drinking water In sight. No signs to show you what hole your on what so ever so if it’s your first time being there then good luck... kids from the campground were running across the fairways and or even putting on the greens and then standing to the side of it waiting for us to hit in there direction. I will never go back to this course what so ever! Trappers turn in the dells is where you wanna go!!!
Hi, Blough2309. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We understand your frustration with the construction projects underway. Please bear with us as we work diligently to make improvements. We hope you'll give us another try in the future. Thanks for choosing Pines Golf Course at Christmas Mountain Village.
5 Hours to play 18!!!
Everything was good to great except the pace of play. The foursome in front of us (2 adults) should have displayed some “golf etiquette” and allowed us through, but didn’t. Also, NO one working there to monitor such play doesn’t help the situation! #10 of the golf card etiquette states, “Please play with undue delay.” This may be something the employees from this course needs to remind everyone of when playing, ESPECIALLY the group of four that was in front of us!

Xmas mt. Oak course
1st thing I noticed is there was no bag drop. A lot of reconditioning going on. 15 th hole closed due to sand trap renovation, not mentioned in their promos. Greens were second rate for the price. Better deals in the area.

doing a lot of work on the course
Great layout but course is in rough shape few bad greens course was very wet from recent rains.
This course used to be beautiful. What happened? Tee boxes bare dirt and weeds. Greens with plenty of bare spots and bumps. It would be nice to see it recover.

Nice course that needs some work to get it up to their normal standards
The greens and tee boxes took a beating over the winter. It was very difficult to putt on the greens. I know they will correct these problems and I will be back to golf this course
again. Always a fun course for intermediates.

Very disappointed in the condition of the course. Bare spots on the greens, beat up tee boxes, no rakes for the bunkers.
Pace of play was extremely slow on front nine, but did loosen up on the back. Will never play this course again!

We take 1 star reviews very serious and your comments are by no means the standard we strive to achieve, but we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.
Had me worried before playing after reading some negative comments from others, and it had been raining for past few days, but course was nice to play and had an enjoyable round with the wife. Girl at pro shop was very friendly and starter was also. Purchased golf on a discount golf website and made the round more enjoyable too.
Not busy, got on 30min early. Not in bad shape, a couple of the greens look like ants are on them
We have played this course many times. This was the first time this year. The course was not in good shape. It had nothing to do with the recent rains. Tee boxes were ugly and general maintenance was not up to snuff.
Better condition than when I played it a month ago but needs some maintenance. Sand traps weedy, greens shaggy. Hardly anyone on it so seemed like we had the course to ourselves. Nice course but please clean it up.
Took a day off from the waterparks to get some vitamin "G". Course a short drive from the "Dells", teed off shortly before noon. Course was in good condition, greens and fairways in mostly good condition, rough very thick, lots of trees, fairly narrow fairways. Some elevated tees and greens made for a challenging round. Played from the white tees, but still had second shots of 180-200 yards to the green on most par fours. Enjoyed the round.
I must say what a difference a year makes. I played this course for the first time last summer (great experience) and was excited to play this past week.
Sadly, the course has undergone a very unfortunate transition. Hitting off the tee boxes was like hitting out of the rough. I kid you not, the grass was at least 2 inches high on some of the tee boxes. The fairways seemed to be in ok condition but the greens were VERY slow. It would appear they had not been mowed in quite some time. Many of the sand traps are not sand traps any more. It looked like management just let weeds and grass take over. Very strange, no edging on the bunkers either.
As other writers have commented there are quite a few greens that appear to have been damaged from either vandalism or from faulty greens keeping equipment. I'm assuming one of the hoses broke on the green mower and no one noticed until it was too late. Rough, rough shape.
I was actually supposed to play there again with 11 other friends in a few weekends but we have since changed locations. I couldn't in good conscience take my friends to the course in this shape.
I may try in again next Summer and HOPE that it improves. If not, there are way too many other great options in the Dells to mess around with this course. I wonder if joining the Choice brand has anything to do with the depletion of the golf course.
Hope you guys get it taken care of. Until, I'd suggest staying away.
They let the course go!
We have played several times in the past and enjoyed the course-good conditions and reasonable price. The day we played the greens were not mowed-a Friday in August in the Dells! The greens were in good shape but EXTREMELY slow, many problematic tee boxes. No course monitoring so very slow. No longer a good value for the money.
