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.

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.

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.

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.

Course is in great shape. Not a lot of level putts. At least that is what I am blaming poor putting on. The design on some of the holes is very interesting.

I played Krooked Creek a number of times over the years. It's a bit of a drive from the Western Twin Cities suburbs but well worth the trip. Enjoy the friendliness of the staff and the course is well laid out with several very interesting holes. Great value and as noted previously friendly staff.

Fun course with not too much difficulty. Back 9 is more challenging and also more scenic. Extremely friendly and laid back staff at clubhouse. Greens are in mint condition as well as the fairways (all the rain has made all courses good in that area this summer).
