Course caters to the regulars

First, let me say that I've always loved this golf course. It's a beautiful "golf in the north woods" experience for a golfer from an urban area like myself. The course was in excellent condition and looked beautiful! I am on a women's league in the Twin Cities and have put a lot of time and money into golf lessons. I'm an average intermediate golfer. This is the second time during a trip up north that my adult family and me have been hasselled by the ranger and told to speed up play. We follow all of the golf rules, pull carts off as soon as we finish play, play ready golf, play efficiently, etc. And yet this happens to us. every time we come to Park Rapids. We noticed the regulars speed around on carts, have no qualms on putting pressure on the people in front of them (teeing off before you have a chance to get out of the way) , and one male golfer stood there with his hands on his hips, in a disgusted fashion, watching us throughout our Par 3 play. This golf course could do more to welcome tourists/visitors. How about adding a few more minutes between tee times to prevent this situation?

Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve.. Thank you for playing Headwaters Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Best course in the area by far!

Beautiful sunny day in the seventies and the golfing conditions were spectacular. What a beautiful course layout carved out of the northern Minnesota pines! It’s a great golf course for all abilities and many challenges for all.

Beautiful golf course in excellent shape. Thursday is Men's Day and the Golf Now tee times were after the men. Very slow, so another day would be better.
