Mystic Oak Golf Course in Waterloo has a diverse layout that seems to play a little differently each time you're on it. The layout features long, winding fairways and gently sloping greens, which are framed by a slew of strategically placed bunkers. There are also many water hazards that come into play throughout the golf course. The gently rolling terrain has subtle ups and downs that provide tricky uneven lies. The back nine is uniquely divided into three par 3s, par 4s, and par 5s each. The golf course will test your short-game skills but the lengthy par 5s offer driving opportunities for long hitters as well. Mystic Oak Golf Course is player friendly enough for a wide range of skill levels but you may be surprised to find yourself using all the clubs in your bag.

Great Course and Good Value for your dollar

Love everything about this course. Greens in great shape and the fairways are all good. The 19th hole is by far the best!

I will be back

For those of you thinking of going back to this course, You should make that effort. This is complete turnaround. I played this course many times in the past on a regular bases but stopped a few years back because of the condition it became. This is the best I have seen it . The greens are on the slower side but wow what a difference. The fairways have some bad areas but overall are really nice. The rough is playable and the tee boxes are much improved. We will be back

Bad

Fairways were half dead and every other green was in decent shape. Not worth the money for 18 in my opinion. I would rather pay a little more and play at a better course.

Not bad

Read some of the older reviews talking about the terrible shape the course was in and even heard the same from a couple of my local golfing buddies. With the $17 hot deal it was worth trying it out. I was happy to see that the course was in excellent shape. Fairways were green with a few rough spots but every course has some. Greens were really soft and needed a cut but they rolled true and it didn't hurt the round at all. There seems to be more than your average amount of local duffers at this course and the pace of play suffered a lot from it. A few of them were in sleeveless t shirts and there were even 2 groups of 5 that made it out in front of us. All of that aside I will absolutely be going back to play this course on a less busy weekday so I can properly enjoy the round.

Course has made an awesome comeback

In past years Mystic Oak was hot or miss in all categories. This place has gone above and beyond and has done a complete 180 from the food to the course conditions, especially the greens. Would highly recommend playing here.
