A quality test

A joy to play. Well worth the drive out from the western suburbs. We’ll be back. Need to get even with a couple of those par 5s.

Great golf, poor customer service

The golf was great but the beverage cart guy and later beverage cart guy and gal drove past my husband and I 3 times and never once stopped to ask if we wanted anything. My husband even tried waving at him and flagging him down. You're not going to make money doing that!

Best bang for the buck in TC metro

Shadow Brooke is a gorgeous setting with a beautiful 18 hole layout. It has lots of variety and is worth the drive out of the city. Staff is people friendly and the golf experience is simply terrific. Would recommend to anyone, young or old. Can’t miss. A gem of a course.

Fantastic Colors, Peaceful Landscape, Manicured with Care

Shadowbrooke in the fall has striking colors, a rolling landscape, and ownership that treats you like you really matter. The course is fun to play, with its mix of short and long holes that reach back into tall mature maple and oak trees. It's an outstanding break from some of the big city courses, nestled out on the west side.

Gorgeous mornings

I had a membership for this first time last year and would frequently stop off at ShadowBrooke on my way in to the Twin Cities for some early morning pre-work golf. It is always so pretty and peaceful. A great way to start the day! I've already re-upped for this year. Can't wait. It is a favorite place for my adult sons and I to meet and get in a round while catching up. We always have a great time and it is so affordable for everyone, whether you walk or ride.

Best Value for Quality of Course

I've been playing courses west of the cities for years, and I find myself returning to Shadowbrooke more and more. It has a fun design that provides plenty of challenges, yet it also provides a lot of freedom to just swing away. A round of golf here is inexpensive and is more fun than other courses in the area.

Bang for your Buck

You won't find a course in the west metro that is a better value than Shadowbrooke. The beautiful and fair design exceeds other courses where you would be paying $10-$20 more per round. Nice blend of woods and open holes.

Beautiful hidden gem just west of the metro!

Great course! A must-visit if you are a Minnesota golfer. Well-maintained, challenging but playable course for all levels of play. Newly surfaced paths, meticulate groundskeeping. Beautiful gem hidden just west of the metro.
