Terrific Afternoon

Had a great round. Played with a friend and a guy the course paired with us. Each of us rode a separate cart due to COVID. Got around in 3 hours, 20 miuntes, but played at a comfortable speed. Greens a little slower than usual, but course in good shape. Good value and fun afternoon of golf. Thank you.

The layout was just right for a junior golfer, rookie golfer and a low handicapper. Tough enough but very playable. With it being so dry and hot, I was impressed that the entire course was lush with great consistent fairways and greens. Will be back again.

Laid back experience

I golfed 18 holes and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The course is well taken care of. What goes unnoticed is the staff is friendly and helpful, especially during this covid19 crisis. I love the Yamaha electric carts. They are the standard for the best cart I ever ever used. I will drive the 45 miles from my house to golf Headwaters. Best golf course in Northern Minnesota, in my opinion.

Course is so well maintained and very friendly Pro Shop

This course is very scenic with many trees, but the way it is maintained is amazing. If you go out of bounds, there always seems to be a good shot to get out of the woods.

It is one of the best values in a wide area of choices because of the fine way the the fairways and greens are cared for by the staff.. Lunch is great too and the service is always friendly. I highly recommend this course.

Great Course

I have been playing golf in North Central Minnesota for years and this is the best course you will find. The condition of the course was unbelievable. The staff is great and very helpful. I can't wait to get back there next year.

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.
