What a Gem

We took a golf junket in early October and was treated to spectacular fall colors and a visually intimidating track. But we played it from our tees and it was fun round, the wind gusts into the 40-50 range made driving a challenge but we survived. Will go back and play the Legend, its a great track and the staff let us do a cart tour during the frost delay which let us plan our round better. A great time, will definitely be back.

A wonderful northern Minnesota course

I love Giants Ridge. As a disclaimer, I am an absolute sucker for heavily wooded golf courses. I love the scenery aspect of golf courses and this course nails that on the head. I have played both the Legend and the Quarry and will definitely be back. The clubhouse is alright, but the patio area where you can eat your lunch between rounds is incredible. It looks over the old filled in mine, just a huge lake now. And it is awesome. That is my favorite place that I have had food/drinks on any golf course. The course is great, a lot of elevation changes and tons of rock structures. The scenery is incredible and the course is a challenge. Pace was pretty good until about hole 15 but it was just a minor wait. This is a northern treat and rewards those who are willing to drive. Do it.

Played both courses back in 2013, just before Golf Advisor was launched. Both are very nice, and it was fun to see the land of Bob Dylan, walleye and giant hockey sticks. Wrote up the trip for GolfChannel.com: http://www.golfchannel.com/news/travel-insider/minnesotas-iron-range-land-lakes-legendary-giants-and-spectacular-golf-giants/

Good Course

I Played 36 holes at the Quarry and I really enjoyed it. The course was in really good shape and challenging. Played the course from the tips and it was a good test of golf. I feel like the Architect would have used the natural mounds better. Seems like as I looked around he could have created a more memorable golf course but still a great course.

Beautiful Course

The course is beautiful with a wide variety of holes. Weather was a little muggy and plays longer than advertised. Greens, fairways and tee boxes are immaculate. Challenging course, but a lot of fun to play. Also got a great rate on a midweek room at the lodge which is also spectacular.
