A must play

Burl Oaks is a challenging golf course, Good T shot is crucial to scoring well. Greens are exceptional condition and fast. #18 is great finishing hole with pond on both sides of fairway.

Challenging Private Course

Burl Oaks Golf Club provides an enjoyable golf experience, not quite on par with the best private clubs in the Twin Cities but still a fun and challenging round. Although not terribly long from the back (Blue) tees at only 6,749 yards, the course is fairly difficult, as evidenced by a 73.4 rating and 142 slope. However, the course has six other tees or combinations of tees that range from 6,585 to 5,222 yards, ratings from 72.6 to 67.3 and slopes from 141 to 129, making it playable for golfers of varying skill levels. You won't get bored playing this course, as the holes feature a variety of right and left doglegs, water hazards, and elevation changes. The fairways are in relatively good condition, especially considering that the club does not provide sand bottles for the carts. Most of the fairways are generously wide and smooth, and the middle of the fairway will usually provide a flat lie. The greens are fast, gently undulating, and roll very true. From the middle (White) tees, the course starts out in fairly benign fashion with a 362 yard par 4 and a 452 yard par 5. The only trouble you might have is water as you approach both greens. Be happy if you start out with two pars, because the rest of the course is not so easy, starting with the 401 yard par 4 sixth hole that requires a forced carry over water to reach the green. Then you'll have the 199 yard par 3 seventh hole, and the 386 yard par 4 eighth with water hazards on both sides, which is the number one handicap hole. You get the idea- it's not an easy course. Eventually you'll reach the 18th tee, where you'll see one of the narrowest fairways flanked by a pond on both the right and left. Long hitters may be able to carry the hazard and reach a wider landing area, but most average players will have to hit a straight shot to land in the fairway. From there it's an uphill approach shot to a large green. Two putts and you've reached the end of your round and you can go have a cold beverage in the very nice clubhouse bar.

Underrated

I play this course a few times a year with a member and in a outside event. Tough, well maintained course. Greens are fast and fairways are firm and roll well. I've never had a bad time at Burl Oaks G.C. Very underrated golf club. I would rather play here than a bunch of private golf clubs in the cities.
