About Northwood Hills Golf

The 6,359-yard Northwood Hills Golf Course in Garrison, Minn., was known as the Hardwoods Golf Course from 1969 to 2014 before it was purchased by the Appeldoorn family and rebranded in 2015. The Appeldoorn’s Sunset Bay Resort offers year-round accommodations in 1- to 3-bedroom cabins on the other side of the lake roughly 30 miles away. The family also owns the Fiddlestix RV Resort with a nine-hole course seven miles to the south. Golfers have the opportunity to stay at Northwood in either a cabin, villa and townhome rental on the course. Mille Lacs is known as a premier fishing lake for walleye and muskie.

Be careful

If you book a hot deal through golfnow, be careful with this course. They will charge you another $10 per person for a cart, even though golfnow lists it as "cart included"

Much improved

Easy to find, easy check in, carts could use regular cleaning, no water for towels, no drinking water on course, tees could use some leveling on some, fairways nice, not much roll like in AZ, roughs punishing, greens are nice and soft to walk on and putt pretty slow and almost always a little curve near the cup, bunkers with nice soft sugar sand, much better cared for than in the past, a very good price as well, all greens with rise in front making chipping a little more challenging

Staff was great!

This course has made a nice come back from being poorly care for, for a number of years. (Stopped playing here about 5 years ago because of bad conditions) Happy to find the new owners and staff and new Club house has made this a fun course to play again! AND my friend got a hole-in-one on the 2nd hole! We will be back!

Great condition

These owners have turned Northwoods around, making it a wonderful course to play again. Two years ago my friends and I said we would not play the course again. Now we look forward to playing it. Thank you Northwoods grounds crew, management and owners!
