From what I hear, the previous owner Passed away recently, R.I.P. to him. But the course is severely overpriced now, the course has been great in the past because although it’s never been kept in good shape it’s been extremely affordable. I used to play this course weekly because of the value. Now I can’t say that I will go back this season because it is not worth anything near 50 dollars to play.

This course is underrated in my opinion. I enjoy the layout of it, I feel it offers a nice variety of tees and can be challenging. A few risk/reward holes and these can lead to some really great rounds. A few holes have some maintenance issues, some very bumpy fairways and some long grass but for the money its completely acceptable. I personally think the fee is below what it should be. Clubhouse is average, staff has always been really nice and accommodating. The rangers come and chat and give you tips, more of a helper role than policing. I have never had an issue with pace, some typical 'playing on the wrong fairway' on #2 and #3 by the errant hitters but after the 3rd you are fine.

It has been awhile since I played Viking Meadows. I am back in Minnesota for a week and decided to play with the price I got on Golf Now. I was very pleasantly surprised. Course was in very good shape..the fairways needed mowing.. The greens were hard but rolled very nice.

My fellows Asian golfers, do not go donates your money on this golf course. Asian are not welcome to play at Vikings meadows, they treated Asian badly. Their customer services are horrible, they running out of carts and they came to kick us out of the course accused us that we have played more than five hours. Which was not true, we only played for 4 hours and half. The day was busy right from tee box 1, the day pretty much head & tail. Bad experienced, even if they offer a free pass with a red carpet I will not go AGAIN#

They didn't have enough carts so we had to wait, but we did want to push our tee time back, and they were very accommodating.

Overall nice course, good shape, challenging greens. Not sure why but 1st tee box was STACKED @ 9am. We were 4th in line to tee off and by the time we did hit the tee box, there were another 5 stacked behind us. Hurry up and wait the entire front 9. Not sure why they weren't starting some off 10. Back 9 the pace picked up, I think most only played the front 9. Fix the scheduling and I'd give it claims she to a 4 stars

Not often is everything at a golf course perfect. I didn't have any food so I can't rate that. The Staff and Bev Cart were superb, so many times staff at a golf course are mundane, not these people! The course was in perfect shape. I will be back!

Course was playing at a 5 hour and 50 min round, by the time we made the turn it was 2h 45m we left without even getting rain checks because we wouldn't go back. Staff was nice and friendly but no ranger and no sense of people on course trying to speed up themselves. I know it was Fathers Day Sunday so even 4h 30 mins would have been exceptable. Course was in bad shape rough and fairways not taking care of at all.. Blah blah blah.. I am sure the average golf can figure out the rest..I am a 18 handicap so just your average golfer that plays 3 times a month. Other courses is my opinion if your looking for a deal or enjoying are keeped up course.

Viking has always been a decent to good course. The changes made in the last 10 years helped a lot to playability, but clubhouse is small and could use a facelift. Course itself is in decent shape. Lots of bumps and craters even in fairways, so be prepared for that. I will visit at least once a year.
