Detailed description of Wild Oak Golf Club

Wild Oak Golf Club, is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Mitchell, South Dakota.

Wild Oak Golf Club first opened for play in the 1920's. The exact year is lost to poor record keeping. By 1936 the land was developed to the point were crews came in and actually made the greens. It is also believed that it was at this time that the original layout of the course in play today, was designed. A team of mules was brought in to help in the making of the course.

The golf course at Wild Oak Golf Club is a scenic 18-hole Golf Course. The course is located near the James River and Firesteel Creek on the east side of Mitchell. This course has a creek that comes into play on five holes. The fairways are flat, and the elevated greens are undulating.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6902 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5155/5406 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 7, a par-5 that plays to 632 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 16, a par-3 that plays to 121 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 3, a 468 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 16, a 121 yard par-3.

Wild Oak Golf Club is the home course of the Dakota Wesleyan University Golf Team.

This course was hammered by the nasty weather we had during May, but still was a fun course to play. The layout is fun, not too difficult, but worthy of a weekend golf date. The older clubhouse is going to be replaced and other upgrades made in the near future, but the old ones are adequate with a snack bar and proshop and a resturant area upstairs. The new nine is growing in well and plays a lot like a links course while the older nine is up and down with tight fairways and water crossings and lots of trees.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
