Course Highlights

One large bluff in particular dominates some of the excellent views at this course.  Our pictures do not show off the looks very well.  Water, trees, sand, wildlife, and prairie elements are all present and make for varied views and fun golf.  Fairways and tee boxes are some of the very best condition of any public course in the Twin Cities and the greens roll true.  Modern large clubhouse with full amenities and restaurant.  One of the best twilight deals in MN at the time of this review.  Premium course for very little money.  Great practice facilities with dedicated short game area.

Condition*

9.3

Greens in very good condition.  Large flat tee boxes and closely mowed fairways are some of the best in MN public golf.  Traps were well maintained.  Sidewalks were excellent.

Playability

8.8

Excellent hole privacy and some of the best tee box options anywhere in the Twin Cities.  Very good balance, variety, and risk / reward throughout.  Uniquely mowed collars give more play options.

Visual Appeal

8.9

Very good visual appeal through the course with many great bluff views in particular.  Several unique views or designs not seen elsewhere in the Twin Cities.  Mix of links/prairie views and a few tree lined holes.
