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.

Greens & most t-boxes in very good condition, some fairways have areas with no grass. This course is making a nice comeback

Bad shape

Course conditions were not great. Also shotgunned us to get the round in under 4 hrs due to a tournament. Staff was a bit much about the situation cause they needed our carts by 12. Not the best experience there.

I would not play here again.

Honestly, horrible value for money. I had what I thought was the first tee time, but they sent a group of four out before me who had a later tee time. They luckily let me play through when I caught up to them quickly.

The fairways were horrible. Lots of mud and not a lot of grass. The greens were great though. The tee boxes were rock hard even in the morning. The rough was crazy on some holes, almost ankle length.

Just go play acorns. Similar price, similar location, a whole lot better.

Fairways are rough

Lots of bald spots, crab grass and weeds on fairways. Greens are OK but lots of ball marks. Lots of fun holes but general conditions make this hard to recommend. Can't argue with the price though.

The course is in better shape than I have ever seen it. It looks like the new owners have spend time and money into trying to make it into a very nice golf course.

Don't Waste Your Time

What a terrible golf experience. 5+ hr round. 5-somes on the course. No Marahall entire round, found him eating a sandwich at the clubhouse. Fairways in terrible conditions; can't tell the difference between rough/fairway. Previous rain made it a sloppy/muddy mess. With so many options in the area, DO NOT waste your time and money here.
