Detroit Country Club's Pine to Palm Course in Detroit Lake, Minnesota is one of those courses ALL of us knows... a terrific track miles from the masses. DL is only about an hour away from Fargo, ND, but from the Twin Cities it's closer to three and a half to four hours. It's worth the drive, though. It is also the perennial site for the week-long Pine to Palm Golf Tournament, one of the state's biggest amateur events being played for the 86th time this year.

Mr. Bendelow's work of a century ago (actually 1916) is just good golf. The course is very straight forward: It plays to a par of 71 and is only 6100-plus yards from the Blue tees, but has a strong 128 slope at that length. Tree lined, lush fairways with thickish rough, combined with small, well-sloped greens with good speed, you can see Mr. Bendelow's skill in this design, just as you can with his designs at Medinah #3, Beverly Country Club and Birmingham Country Club.

One final note: If you are going to be in the area for a couple of days, make sure to play Wildflower at Fair Hills, too, for a completely different experience - Prairie links style golf with almost 100 feet of elevation change. Staff at both courses are terrific and you'll become a lifetime fan of the Detroit Lakes area, guaranteed!
