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.

Nice Layout. Better than average golfers will score well!

I enjoy playing this course. I seem to be able to get on in regulation and the greens are large enough and you can putt or lag from everywhere. Some tee boxes could use some work but after all, they did experience a fire they are dealing with. All in all, we had a good round.

Pleasantly Surprised

Played this course for first time. The greens and course were in great shape. The off course facilities were not great. A good value and I would play it again.

Fun course to play

I really enjoyed the course. There are a number of fairly short holes where even I can hit short irons approaching the greens. Some doglegs, some holes over water, and some flat fairways, some hilly. A lot of different looks on different holes.

Concessions

My only suggestion would be the person working in the substitute pro shop mention that there are concessions available in the pavilion area... Wasn't aware of this since I played the course for a couple years

Nice Golf Course

Mystic Oaks is a very nice course. Friendly staff, pretty nice layout. Fairways were in decent shape. Greens were in very good condition and some of the greens are very challenging. Highly recommended for the price.

Very disappointed

We typically play here about 10 times a season. This was our first time back since the club house burned down. We got to hole 7 and the wind and cold was just unbearable. We decided to finish up the front 9 and get a voucher for the back 9. It was far too cold and windy to finish. We were told there was nothing they could do about a voucher for the back 9. The guy stated he was new to this and that they normally charge $20 for 9 holes and we payed $25 for 18… we’ve never had this issue before. I think it’s ridiculous to pay full price for 9 holes? Why wouldn’t we get discounted half of what we payed? We won’t be back after this. There are plenty of beautiful courses in waterloo that will continue to get our business. What a shame.

Overall conditions were above par!

Considering we are in the first week of March here in Illinois the conditions were not terrible considering all the snow we've had just melted this past Sunday. Things were somewhat soggy here and there and a few greens played slower than usual, but for $18.00 we aren't complaining! Hopefully the clubhouse rebuild gets underway soon; we miss the bar-b-que! we'll be back, again and again.
