Best Value in the Dells

There are many outstanding choices in the Wisconsin Dells area for golf....I play all of the courses each year but I feel that Christmas Mountain is at this time the most enjoyable course. It’s in outstanding condition, recent issues with course maintainence have been addressed and at this time it has the best greens in the area. That combined with the outstanding views from many tees and greens on the back 9 make a truly enjoyable course. If you like fast and breaking putting you love Christmas Mountain. The courses plays fairly tight especially from the gold or blue tees.

It’s a great value and right now is not as heavily played as it is not directly connected to one of the areas mega resorts as Trappers Turn and Wildrock are connected to the Kalihari and Wilderness resort respectively.

Give it a try your will not be disappointed.

Fun Course

We really enjoyed the course. It was in great shape, had good length (played from the blue tees) and the layout was beautiful and really fun to play.

Fun and challenging

We stayed a few days at the Timbers area and invited another couple to join us for golf on Labor Day. The course was in excellent condition for the time of year and it's well-cared-for course. Some huge elevations and huge greens. It was fun to play. The back-to-back par 5s on the back nine flew us away. Good par 3s along the way, too.

Nice track in excellent shape

Until today I had not played Christmas Mountain for about 10 years. In the last two years I heard from several friends who have played it that the course conditions were not good; and I wanted to see it for myself. Apparently they hired a new superintendent this year, and whatever problems they had were turned around 100%. I found the tees, fairways and greens to be in consistently excellent condition. The rough was cut very precisely and consistently throughout the course. There are a few brown patches, but it has been dry lately and the fairways were still soft. They are doing some fixes in various places so I would think they will continue to make improvements, but there aren't any issues anywhere in play. They have lost or otherwise removed a couple dozen trees, and they have also removed a number of sand traps, presumably to help maintain good pace. The rough has not grown into the former traps yet, but this is not a serious problem.

Regarding the layout, it is different than most and quite interesting. The front nine has a lot of right to left holes and is pretty challenging even from the white tees. The back plays shorter from the whites, and is more of a target course but provides several good birdie opportunities even if you don't hit the ball real long.

They did not have a starter or beverage cart today. The clubhouse staff was extremely friendly and helpful. And Mulligans is a great bar with good food and they have some outside seating options. Overall Christmas Mountain is a great course and a very good value compared to other options the Dells area.

Very Nice - Much improved conditions

The fairways and greens were in wonderful condition. Played there 2 years ago and can tell they have put a lot of work into improving the course. A GREAT experience. Greens rolled true, traps were well maintained, and the "trip through the woods" on the back 9 is challenging.

Christmas Mountain Village

Christmas ‘Mountain Village has come a long ways in the past couple of years. Their greens are much improved and reducing the number of traps has speeded up play.
