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 Shape

One of my favorite courses. It has improved so much over the years. Greens and tee boxes in great shape Hole #15 is more than challenging.

Pretty nice track

Par 4s ads a while are short. But par 3s and 5s make up the diff. Course in wry nice shape. Only 1 fairway was thin and we actually drove long and thru the typical landing area in that one. Greens very lush and a little slow but smooth.
Pace of play was 3:30 - good!! Staff accommodating and food in clubhouse also good. BBQ smelled delicious. We had the FRIDAY cod special also good!!!

Fun and not too challenging

This was a fun course that was a good value. Not too challenging, but had some holes that required some strategy. Good food at the club house, but grab what you need before heading out as there are no beverage carts on Friday.

First time player

I made a tee time here at the suggestion of a fellow golfer on a prior round. Interesting and challenging layout on a few holes, The only complaint would be a few of the tee boxes were a bit beat up and many were hard as a rock - trouble getting the tee in the ground. But the greens were nice (but slow) and the fairways in great condition. Tricky in spots, due to the water and some blind shots, but will know better next time I play here.

Super

This is the best course I have ever played on. I am new to golf, but this place was very well maintained. I played my best golf today, here. If only my putting was a little better. I am at the trying new courses stage, but will definitely have this course in the memory bank to be back. I didn't eat, but the bbq smoker was sure smelled really good as well finishing on 18.
Great Time!!

Golf fun. Food manager not so much

Golf course was fun. Staff friendly. However after the round we had dinner. The restaurant owner was very rude. Not only to us but another
Couple So much so that I will never eat there again. I do not have to be talked down to.
The server did a good job but she seemed to be stressed by the (restaurant owner).
So, WEmay play there again but will find somewhere else to eat.

Mystic Saturday

Overall pretty good condition. Some fairways and tee boxes still need some work but the improvements done to date are really great and it seems to be a positive trend.

Good value for your buck

Good layout, very difficult par 5s, above average par 3s, greens will hold a good iron. Probably harder than it course rating would indicate...especially from the Blue tees.
Above average food in the clubhouse served by a very cordial staff!
