Length 6401 yards
Slope 123
Rating 70.6

Krooked Kreek Golf Club has a scenic location nestled between the bluffs of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and the glacial eskers of western Wisconsin. The aptly named course has a creek that zigzags haphazardly across the landscape. The golf course was opened as a nine-hole course in 1990 and the back nine was added five years later. The front nine sprawls across mostly flat terrain and the generous greens offer some rooms for error, but you'll have to be careful because the layout gets tougher on the back nine. The greens are much smaller on the back side and they are much more undulating, making accuracy and thoughtful course management the key to a good score. Wetlands come into play on 11 holes at Krooked Kreek Golf Club, and there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout.

Worth the trip

Course is always in good shape. Once again the course had lots of rain the night before. Standing water ion some fairways. Just need to pick up and take relief. Greens are also great.

This course has plenty to offer!

Krooked Kreek is the best course to play outside the cities. Easy to get to, usually cheap and well worth it. A lot of dog-leg holes but honestly islets a great challenge if that’s your thing. Definitely a must play if you haven’t yet.

Fun course

The course was in great condition considering the cold winter and wet spring. The only issue my husband and I encountered was hole 12, we had difficulty finding the green, maybe an improved sign with directions.

Hidden Gem

This course is very nice!! I play several courses in the NE part of the twin cities and this course is well maintained. Good greens, good fairways, good layout!! It’s a 30min drive for me but I would do it every time because it’s super nice and price is great!!

Good course, good value

Got a little slow on the back 9 when we got behind some music-blarring drunken hackers. But overall, a good course for the money.

Beautiful Course, even the horse fly loves it

This course is beautiful. A gem.. Difficult holes for even moderate to good players with some blind approaches that offer opportunities to 'go for it' and gain an advantage or play it safe. The only downside was the immense population of Horse fly's, wow, there were plenty of them.. The staff was outstanding, I lost my Gatorade on either hole one or two and had not even opened it, at the turn I went in hoping against hope someone turned it in, and the staff gave me a free one.. Will definitely return.. I played the blue tees as the course is a shorter one.

Rolling greens and terrific setup

Krooked Kreek is a beautiful layout only 45 to 50 minutes from St. Paul. The greens have lots of slope and different levels, the layout is unique and fun, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The pace of play on a Sunday morning amounted to 3:30 for all 18 holes. We had a great time and will likely return several times this season.

Fun Course.

The course was in great shape. It has some challenging holes. The pace was great, never had to wait at a tee box. The bugs weren't too bad.

Good course

I didn't know what to expect when we booked this round. The course seemed to be out in the middle of nowhere. But we were pleasantly surprised with the course having very helpful staff, a full Pro Shop and a good course layout.
Course conditions were good. Greens are tricky with a lot of subtle breaks. Like most courses in the area, the design has at least one bad hole. At Krooked, it's the question-mark shaped par 5 12th with no apparent place to lay-up, forcing you to go for the green in 2 over a swamp, I mean wetlands.
