Bristol Oaks Golf Club and Banquet Center is situated just 30 minute from the suburbs of both Milwaukee and Chicago. It is popular among locals for being one of the area's best values. Despite its convenient location, the course feels tranquilly secluded thanks to the miles of picturesque countryside surrounding it. Mature trees dot the rolling landscape, coming into play along the fairways and framing most of the holes. Water hazards come into play on four holes. Strategically placed bunkers are also lurking near most of the greens. The golf course is challenging but offers a playability that makes it appealing to a range of skill levels. Four diverse sets of tees make it even more approachable. There is also a lighted grass driving range and expansive chipping and putting areas available at Bristol Oaks Golf Club and Banquet Center.

Bristol Oaks is a great course for less-talented players. We were also allowed to start on the back9 so we would not have to wait for a league where the players showed up a little early due to pending bad weather.

Great layout, constantly improving, becoming must play

Bristol Oaks is fast becoming a must play course in SE Wisconsin. The conditions continue to get better, the layout is fantastic, with a great mix of holes. This year the course went back to its 1964 layout, so now the 18th hole is the 2nd hole from previous years, which is a fantastic dogleg right par 5. There is just enough water and sand to make it a great challenge, but a lot of the difficulty comes in the greens, they can be very tough if you miss them. The practice range is fantastic, with ample space, and the food is amazing. Highly recommend.

Problem with the tee time

We booked our round for 154pm and were told by the ranger with 5 holes to go that we would have to ceded our spot for a shotgun start. They should not have allowed us to book the round if it would not be completed.

Will Play It Again

Was in the vicinity to pick up a camera and booked a round at Bristol Oaks. Course is a little difficult to find the first time, but is worth the effort. Rain had covered the area the previous two days and course was quite soft, but greens were moderate to fast. Not a lot of water in play, but plenty of bunkers to protect the greens. Will play there again when I'm in the area. Good value and course is in superior condition.

Great family oriented course..Nice place in the country

I played with my beginner golfer daughters and wife so the slow pace didn't bother us. It would have if I played with guy friends. Nice cart beverage service, halfway house and friendly club house. Nice bar but we couldn't stay. Okay practice tee. Nicely located short women's tees was a huge plus for us. The trees, rolling hills, and non home lined course was beautiful.

Great value hot deal but regular rate is a great value also.
