Mallard Pointe Golf Course
Closed for summer
According to a notice posted on the door, the course closed May 30 and reopen Sept 1, 2014 after they "remodel," whatever that means. At least it sounds like the course won't be lost permanently. It has always had two or three quirky, if not downright unfair, holes but, overall, it is an interesting design, in a somewhat remote location near a state park, that has always been good to play at least a few times each year. The course offered pleasant scenery and plenty of challenges for players of all skill levels. It's always had maintenance and profit problems but hopefully it will yet have a brighter future. And, before I forget, yes you will lose plenty of balls each time you play unless you're really a scratch golfer.

Good Value... Fix the greens!
Got ready to tee off at our scheduled time and there was a huge group just getting going. Pro shop guy let us start on 10 so no foul I suppose...
Very challenging course with some blind tee shots and a card killer to round off each nine. Favorite stretch was the 3,5,5,3,4 on the front.
Greens had lots of sandy spots in them and were very slow. This was our biggest complaint, but for the money we were satisfied.
Would definitely play here again.
Hope the greens get figured out though. Shame...

Greens were a little dry but overall the course was good.
The landscape is great and the layout is worthwhile. The course is worth playing just for the views.

18th hole will get your attention.
Course could use a marshall. Play was slow but still enjoyed

Great layout very challenging.
Played twice this week and the course is in great shape. This course has it all elevation changes, water, dog legs and ravines. The greens were consistent and fast but not too glassy. This is the fourth time playing this course while visiting Oxford, love the course and its a great value. There were some wet areas from over watering and couple dry dead spots on the greens so not perfect.

tough course from blue tees
the only problem was the greens were just sanded but nothing you can due about that

Good layout, but conditioning needs to be improved upon. Challenging, but fair, if you hit it fairly straight. Bring a lot of golf balls if you have a tendency to hit it somewhat sideways as there is considerable trouble lurking to grab a wayward shot. A couple of driveable par 4's and a couple of reachable par 5's give the longer hitters opportunities for eagles. Numbers 9 & 18 will give you all that you can handle. Overall, it's a fun golf course that won't bore you.
