This used to be considered one of Wisconsin Dells premier courses and worth the money.

Not any more though the course is in disrepair and the greens r horrible.

The t boxes r aweful

I don’t know what happened but I won’t even attempt to go there again until 2020

While my rating for value is a 4, that is the only reason I would come back to or recommend this course at this time. I golfed on a hot deal special through golf now which made green fees cheap; until I saw the course conditions. Then instead of a steal it made it a bargain. To be fair, the greens were smooth although similarly as shaggy as your freshly cut poodle. I felt like using my driver for a putter. The tee boxes were in terrible shape. Again, I put a tee under my ball for driving so hard sand could be sufficient. The fairways and rough were ok. I have played The Oaks at Christmas Mountain in the past, and this was easily the worst I have ever seen this course

Wonderful staff got us off. Some of the greens were damaged, perhaps by late winter storms, but overall everything was satisfactory. Nice variety of holes. Especially #10 where you climb to the top of the ski hill and tee off into the valley below. Beautiful view. A nine hole course is also available.

Started off on the back 9 and play was kind of slow. Tee time was 1:20, was able to tee off at 140. Group ahead did let us play through so that was nice. The problem I had with the course were the greens and tee boxes. Multiple greens were so damaged m we decided to just take two puts and move on. Tee boxes were scorched or were without any grass on them. I’ve played many courses around the state and this course would be amazing if they maintemed it better.

Golf now was able to get us hot time at Christmas Mt on Oct 23.--65 degrees and NO wind. The next day 45 degrees and 50 MPH winds.

Course was in excellent condition. Pro shop was still well stocked and prices were 40% off.

I had my best round ever at Christmas Mountain. I cut my finger badly earlier in the week and wasn't sure if I could even grip the club or fit the glove over that hand. The glove fit, nearly no pain, and I didn't open up the stitches. Also, had my best round here ever. I shot an 83 and left several putts short due to the longer greens in the off season. I made a lot of putts too though. I love the course.

We have played this course before and it was in very nice shape. This time, it was if they have stopped maintaining anything but still charge to play! Greens were as long as the fairway normally is and fairway was like rough. Couldn't see dividing line between rough and fairway. We realize it is the end of the season, but just close the 9-hole course if it's not going to be maintained. We saw another golfer when we let him play through (we were 4 and he was a single) and he also commented on the poor playing conditions - said he wouldn't be back!

Loved the layout! Greens were average for speed and the overall condition of the course when I played in late fall was above average. The design of tight and it is a shot-makers course with lots of elevated tees and greens. Enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to others!

Course in good shape for fall round. Even the sand traps were nice after rain the day before. Greens were a bit slow, and a few tee boxes need a bit more grass, but overall is an entertaining course with elevation changes, some challenging water locations, with a few narrow tree lined fairways.
