Albion Ridges review

Had an 8 tee time for 2 through the golf now app. When I checked in, they advised me that they pair up the golf now bookings with other golf now bookings and we had to play a foursome. I got the impression that they don’t like the golf now bookings. Course was nice, links style course and the rough is very hard to get out of. The greens were in great shape and nice fairways. If you can stay out of the rough you can put up a good score. Overall it’s a nice course, I might have had a better experience if I would have booked straight through the course.

Fun 27 hole layout

This is a fun course. I know a lot of my golfing friends would seriously consider membership if we lived just a bit closer. It’s a must play experience.

An Excellent Course at a Good Price!

This is an excellent course! Very well maintained and an outstanding, challenging layout but very fair and playable. We vacation in the area every year and this course has been added to the "must play" list. We played Boulder and Granite and both were very nice. See you next year, we will be back! Staff is very friendly. Greens run true and fast - play more break than you think. Course was in excellent condition!

Greens are ridges!

This course would be a 4 &1/2 star course, if the greens did NOT have so much break. We play here once a year. We chose the day of a scramble, so the pins were vicious! Felt like I played in the U.S. Open. Outside of the greens. It is a great course for the money.

Still a great track.

Albion Ridges is a very nice course, kept in great shape. Rolling ridges, marshes and woods make it sufficiently challenging without causing pain. I have been golfing here a few times every summer for years and have never been disappointed. Try it; you'll like it.

Awesome Course

This is my favorite course when I come home in the summer. I am willing to drive 45 miles to play this course because of the staff and the course itself.

Beautiful and Challenging Golf

Here is a course with true variety. From tough rough to water hazards. You need to watch where you drive that ball. The fairways seem wide with few trees but soon you discover that is not the fairway...beautiful but definitely rough.
As Johnny Miller would say..you're in the deep stuff. The good thing is the grass is blue grass so you can get out but determining your yardage is not so easy. Soft but reasonably fast greens with enough adulations to make you look carefully before you putt. Small greens and big greens. This is a great course. Add in newer cards with GPS and you have my favorite course in Minnesota so far. Pace was good and as I played alone, people encouraged me to play through, Minnesota nice. What's not to like? No restaurant but sandwiches and drinks to take care of basics.
I'll be back.

windy and wet

Was a windy day, also with all the rain we had area were very wet. We played pick and move to a dry spot. Other than that the course was in good condition. WE drive an hour to play the course, well worth it. Like having 3 different nine hole courses. Can play all 3 nine if you are up to it. Will play again. Would play more often if we were closer to course. Employees are always very friendly.
