Course conditions were excellent. Greens were quite fast, but were puttable even with numerous ridges and swales. Only a few forced carries and mostly reasonable. Lots of doglegs, some with quite an angle. Good use of the elevations. Last 6 holes quite scenic. GPS in cart a plus.

Bobby's Legacy golf course at Cragun's Resort is an excellent example of a Minnesota resort course. The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design features expansive undulating fairways, lots of water and woods, and large, fast greens with subtle (and some not-so-subtle) contours. The course is visually stunning, with lake views on many holes. With five par 5 holes and only four par 3's, the course plays to a par of 73. This was my first time to play the course, and it quickly became clear that some thought off the tee is required before deciding which club to take and where to try to place the tee shot. On several holes, it might be better to take a long iron or hybrid off the tee. With a good result, you'll have only a mid to short iron left to reach the green. On the other hand, the 200-plus yard par 3 15th may require a driver off the tee for most average golfers. Don't let false pride keep you from making par on this hole. By contrast, the par 3 9th hole is only 112 yards from the elevated back tees. The peninsula green, with water on three sides, demands a precise tee shot. On a windy day my foursome, which included two single-digit handicappers, managed to leave only one ball on the green. The finishing hole is a classic risk-reward par-5, where you can challenge as much of the marsh as you dare on your tee shot. You can then try for the green in two, or lay up for a better chance to avoid the bunkers and hazard surrounding the green with a good wedge shot. You can then head to the clubhouse, where you can have a cold Minnesota brew on the patio, and watch other poor souls try to keep their balls on that pesky 9th green.

I have found this to be my favorite course to play in the Brainerd area on a regular basis. I have only had one complaint and that is when they allow a very slow 5-some of women to play in front of a 4-some that is 20 handicap average. What should have been a 3.5 hour round stretched into a almost 5 hour round. I am very surprised as up to that time this was the most enjoyable course to play in the area. This ruined what was to be a fantastic golf round. It is unacceptable for a course of this caliber to allow this, especially on a busy day where tee times were booked all day. Not only were we slowed down but the 2 foursomes behind us had the same issue. Also, the slowwwww women group would not allow us to play through, another serious offense that should have been addressed by the course.
