2016 is a big year for Minnesota golf, as the Ryder Cup Matches come to Hazeltine this fall, and the spotlight of the golf world along with it.
Thousands of golf fans will descend on the Minneapolis area looking to play their own games around the city and throughout the state. Prestigious Hazeltine, of course, is very private, but there are plenty of other places to play both around the Twin Cities and also further north in the land of Bob Dylan, Minnesota's Iron Range.
The Land of 10,000 Lakes has a whole bunch of fun, affordable golf courses. Golf Advisor uncovered the 10 top-rated courses of the year according to your ratings and reviews.
