Play the Creek!

Pioneer Creek Golf Course is aptly named. Your golf ball will have to cross the creek seven times during your round, off the tee, on the second shot, or on the approach to the green. Water comes into play on a few other holes as well, so if your ball stays dry for the full eighteen holes you are probably a very good golfer. The course is set on very nicely rolling terrain. There are no dramatic elevation changes, but you will have to add or subtract a club several times on your approach shots. The fairways are very wide and generally smooth, although there were a few places where water issues have resulted in dead spots which were appropriately marked as ground under repair. Tree coverage is fairly sparse, so you won’t generally have to worry about avoiding wood. The major hazards to avoid are the natural grass areas or marsh areas that abound along the fairways or that have to be carried off the tee. The greens are top dressed with sand and very firm. Our group wasn’t able to find many ball marks even after lofting wedges in to the green. Despite the firmness, the greens did not play very fast. Speed was moderate and comfortable. Two members of our group had played the course before, while two hadn’t. It quickly became obvious that familiarity with the course is a definite advantage. Many of the greens are offset at an angle to the fairway and raised with a false front so that run-up shots are not an option. There were also a few blind tee shots. GPS units on the electric carts helped a little, but there is no substitute for experience. The course is visually appealing and fun to play. One of the most scenic views is on the tee of the second hole. A picturesque old barn sits in the distance off to the left, recalling the past of the land you’re playing on. In the far western suburbs of Minneapolis, Pioneer Creek may be a bit of drive, but it’s really worth the effort to get out to this course.

Beautiful Course

Course is about 10 minutes west of Wayzata. We played on a beautiful day. Course was in great shape. Greens were firm and fast. Fairways were in nice shape. Course has a nice layout. Front 9 is fairly open. Creek comes into play on a few holes. Some nice views of the course. Back 9 has more trees, but a really nice layout. Carts must have been fairly new, staff was friendly. I'll put this course on my favorites list.
