Top 10 courses in Minnesota according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

2016 is a big year for Minnesota golf, as the Ryder Cup Matches come to Hazeltine this fall, and the spotlight of the golf world along with it.

Thousands of golf fans will descend on the Minneapolis area looking to play their own games around the city and throughout the state. Prestigious Hazeltine, of course, is very private, but there are plenty of other places to play both around the Twin Cities and also further north in the land of Bob Dylan, Minnesota's Iron Range.

The Land of 10,000 Lakes has a whole bunch of fun, affordable golf courses. Golf Advisor uncovered the 10 top-rated courses of the year according to your ratings and reviews. Rankings are based on a facility's combination of their overall and subcategory ratings. You can read reviews and see rating details of each course by clicking on their course page.

I don't know who put this list together but some of the "top 10" wouldn't make it to a top 50 in my list. Missing but should be listed are: The Wilderness on Lake Vermillion. The Classic near Brainerd. Dacotah Ridge near Redwood Falls, Minnesota National near McGregor, Stoneridge east of St. Paul & Chaska Towne Course very close to Hazeltine  (site of Ryder Cup).

As the title of the article and text in the body explain, these were based on user reviews submitted to the site. Some of the courses you mention did not qualify because they did not receive enough reviews. Maybe in 2016.
