All the hole were backed up for some reason. Had to wait about 5 or so minutes at the last few holes to tee off. Otherwise the course itself is very nice

Superior National

Truly superior! The course is in outstanding shape. The best conditions of any course in Minnesota. The greens are fast! Played solo in 3 hours! Wished I lived closer than the Twin Cities. Fall colors are perfect.

A Must See and Play Course

A beautiful golf course with incredible views of changing fall colors and Lake Superior. Excellent shape. I used a hot deal to receive a very good price yet normal rates were fair considering the quality and experience of the course.

Beautiful scenic course

Nature here is excellent. However, the pace of play on Canyon 9 was brutally slow and many of the greens had un-repaired ball marks.

Way overpriced

First time I’ve played this course since the $5 million renovation. Was shocked they put most of that money into the River 9 as it’s easily the worst 9 on the course. Mountain had minimal changes and that was the best 9. They have some nice views but course is extremely gimmicky. Fact they charge $111 when Fortune Bay and Giants charge less is a travesty. Those places provide 100* the golf experience. I felt it was a massive ripoff.

Fun course in a beautiful setting

The course is in great shape and very playable when played from the correct tees. As nice as the course is, playing there is mostly about the spectacular scenery. Take time for a few pictures.
