slow

Rum River is a great treat. However the pace of play is ridiculous. It is course that can easily be played in 4 hours or less. The pace can only be controlled by a ranger which most public courses in Minnesota lack. Lots of couples and newbies which can be painful to play behind. Covid has brought a lot of new golfers out which is great but be prepared for slow play. Course layout us very nice and getting a beverage while playing was easy as cart staff did a great job getting to all the players. In fairness to the course I Played on a Sunday which I try to avoid at all cost at most all Minnesota public courses. Other than pace of play course was fun.

Solid outting

It rained for a day and a half before my round. The rain let up 1 hour before my round and the course was still in great condition.

Course Review

Rum River is hard to beat when you consider the price, the conditions and location. Greens are fantastic, some fairways are subject to water/soft spots due to low lying areas and with the river just a few yards away. Each hole is different, presents varying degree of challenges for golfers of all levels. Overall, its a solid course and I definitely recommend it.

GM attitude and late tee time tee off

Yesterday my father and I booked an 8:12 tee time at this course. We live about 45 min away from it. So we woke up and got there 15 minutes early to wake up and stretch before playing. No one was there in the club house or the bar. We sat outside for 20 minutes then talked to the grounds crew to figure out what happened. Apparently the person that works there had an incident. A back up person showstopper up around 8:30 and we didn’t tee off until 8:53. When we got done with our round I went in to talk to the General Manager to explain my frustration. He greeted me with attitude and told me I played the round and payed $20 bucks. He continued to say accident happens there’s nothing he can do about it with attitude. He ended up giving me a free 18 holes but I have to pay the cart fee of $15 bucks. He wasn’t apologetic or owning up to the fact that his business made a mistake. I will not be playing this course again because I had to ask for an apology. Business is business and when your business makes a mistake you should take care of the customer in a respective manner and he failed to do so. If I was 40 minutes late to my tee time do you think he would give me my money back or let me play?

Enjoyable Day

We come to Rum River Hills three or four times a summer. We like the course and it it can be a challenge which we like. Today’s pace was very slow. However, it was a beautiful day and we were not in a hurry.

Fun, quirky course

My son and I were looking for a quick round while in MN. Weather was a bit cold and wet at first, better by end of round. Several blind tee shots or sort of awkward angles/club choices (even from the tips). Greens were quite varied in size, but mostly small and often turtle-backed -- made for some very tricky putts and chips. Shots that seemed good would sometimes trickle off. Main issue was that holes were mostly very close; Felt like balls were sailing close-by from other groups, and a couple of our drives were in other fairways. Also a lot of OB -- plenty of bordering yards, and not always obvious where those lines were if you hadn't played there before.
