Always enjoyable

I've played this course about 10 times since moving to Minnesota 2 years ago. Early in the year w MN winters can be tough on the greens. 3-4 par course, elevations changes makes some holes interesting for eagles and birdies, that or scavenger hunts. Friendly staff, family style course. Play can be bottlenecked on some parts of the mid 9. FYI only 9 holes.

Like this course

Although it's only 9 holes, the course is fun to play. It's a great course for the price listed.

Great course, close in, up north feel

Highly recommend this course for a fun 9. Scenic with a lot of trees, interesting paths, variety of elevations, close in. Friendly and helpful staff. Good grill for sandwich and a beer following your round.

Great for beginners

I play here every week or two with my two teenagers who are just learning. Challenging enough to be fun but not long and straight forward enough they can have success as well. #5 is my nemesis. Should be a simple hole for me. You have to have some accuracy off the tee- it isn't just an open cow pasture type of course. If you are looking for fancy this isn't your place but I like to walk and enjoy and I can play here under 2 hours every time. Once it hits summer greens are well watered and can be too soft but always playable.

It is in really bad condition now.

Greens are very beaten up. They where so hard that my ball bounced 20 feet up into the air after I lofted a ball onto the green. Fairways were not much better.

Beautiful hidden gem!

I was fortunate to pair up with the superintendent of the course. He was a fantastic gentleman and the round was most enjoyable. I am moving to the area and and am excited that I found my new executive course! I believe there were seven par fours on this. I can't wait to go back!

needs basic golf course maintenance

found the driving range in very poor condition and the price a bit higher than most driving ranges. the course had a lot of rough spots from greens with gouges to fairways with mud spots and bunkers not raked. the walk will give you a workout even at just 9 holes and has some interesting holes that are better after you've played them once.
