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.

Pretty course - lots of water

Very pretty course but somewhat difficult if you have not played here before. Lots of water and doglegs so hard to know where and how far to hit it. If you played it a few times, could be quite fun.

Enjoyed the Round

I enjoy the layout and the course has some easy holes and some difficult holes that can challenge anyone. Greens were in great shape, but the fairways definitely need some work. Staff is very friendly and for $39 on a Saturday morning you can't complain too much. I'd come back again.

Was greeted by a very nasty employee

Employee literally did finger waving and much sarcasm for being 5 minutes late. Course wasn’t busy.. No wait time on 1st tee but she was angry. Other customers commented on her poor people skills. Fair course but not worth being greeted by such nasty employee.
