Not the best private course around

The clubhouse and amenities are fabulous. But the course is quite gimmicky and unforgiving. There are better private courses around.

Best Greens In Minneapolis

If you're looking for a well laid out course with challenging greens, this is your gem. I've played this course a number of times and have never gotten sick of it. Stretching out to over 7,000 yards you can get challenged with length, accuracy, and some of the deepest bunkers in the state. Make sure you hit the 19th hole after, because it has some great food and overlooks the 18th green.
