This course has some really confounding signage and paths. I was trying to bust 18 and almost got lost finding 5, 10 and 18.

That said, this course is a no-frills, little trees parkland/links/swamp course. The fairways and greens are surprisingly good, but the views and random areas of water, mud and garbage were really a drawback. It's a very plain course where the holes (especially the front 9) felt like the same hole just differing lengths. Not much undulation in Rush City. If you're on your way north on 35.. wouldn't hurt to pop the 30 seconds off the ramp and go play though.

The course was in great shape. They could use a lot more signs telling you how to get from hole to hole and more yardage markers. A laser is a great idea to bring for distances to not only the pins but the hazards. The tee box's are all up on hills which I'm not a fan of walking up hills to tee off. But that could be just me.

This was my first time playing at Bulrush. The set up is kind of interesting, so be aware that you will need a cart to avoid long walks between some holes and to the range. The course was in good shape and the greens were in great shape. The course was challenging because any ball near the woods was lost due to the density of shrubs. Bring an extra ball or three.

I would play here again, especially for some of the cheaper afternoon rates that they have available.

We have played this course twice and had an excellent time both times. The course is challenging and in very good condition. The last time we played the greens were quite fast but in good shape.

It's worth the drive up from the Twin Cities.

This course is worth the trip from the Twin Cities. There are risk/reward holes, demanding drives on some holes and grip it and rip it on other holes, excellent greens, multiple tees for different skill levels, and courteous staff. The clubhouse demonstrates a lack of funding but the course maintenance is perfect. You might need some bug repellent as it is in Minnesota.

I thought the greens we're great. Smooth and true a touch slow but for the most part perfect.

The fairways and traps were the opposite, Traps are hard as cement and not even raked. The fairways have hardly grown in, dandelions in fairways, lots do weeds and of course water still drowning parts of the back nine.

A little disappointed since I typically like playing this course.
