Short but Challenging Course

The University of Minnesota Les Bolstad golf course is a relatively short (6,288 yards from the back tees) track that may not challenge longer hitters, but will hold the interest of the average player. The fairways are tree-lined, undulating, and moderately wide. Elevation changes are not severe, but must be factored in on quite a few holes.
Most of the holes are fairly straight or slightly bending, with only four holes being true doglegs. The greens are nicely contoured; however, since we played during the third week of April, they were not yet in the best condition. I would expect that they would be moderately fast and rolling true by Summer. There are a number of holes where the green is not visible from a long approach distance, so those playing the course for the first time may want to take a cart so they can drive up to take a look. Having read reviews of this course on other sites, there seems to be a definite diversity of opinion about it, and many folks apparently don't like it. However, everyone in our foursome takes the opposite viewpoint and will continue playing it and enjoying it.
