A good course for a close to home round
This course is pretty nice, like all of the Minneapolis parks clubs. They are maintained well, facilities are pretty nice and the staff is average but not bad by any means. The layout is not my favorite, it feels a little clumped together but for the area it is in I can accept it. The par 3's are the best part, they are challenging and I always enjoy them. My only real complaint: slow rounds. There are usually a lot of people on this course and it jams up. Especially at the tee for #3. You will be waiting if you play this course, but if you don't mind then you will be just fine. Overall, I feel it is a nice course for a round after work or if you don't feel like driving too far out of the city. It is worth playing.
One of my favorite MSP municipal courses. A solid layout that is lined by trees makes for a nice challenge. Not a long course by any means but will require you to keep it on the fairway. There weren't any holes that really stuck in my memory but at the same time I never felt anything was set up unfairly. It was an easy walk and I look forward to playing it again.
when I played it in the middle of the 2014 summer the course was in great condition. the greens were fine and the fairways looked great. However this year in 2015 i've heard that the greens are a wreck. Hopefully the course gets back on track with there greens.
