Beautiful course, lots of fun holes.

Headwaters is always a great course. This year it wintered pretty well, but the greens aren't yet back to 100%.The layout has a bunch of special holes, so you'll always have an enjoyable round. Highly recommended. If it was located in the Brainerd area, the price would be close to $100.

Amazing Golf Course

This is worth the drive! Best course around, always in great shape. Greens are already great and it’s May 2nd! Excited to see the new 5000sq foot patio area this summer.

Wonderful greens

Kudos to the team. Very hard greens meant I kept bouncing through for the first couple holes. Putting was no walk in the park on some
Of the more undulating terrain. Absolutely beautiful course and will definitely come again. Worth it for the PCC guys to come up to this northern gem.

Thanks for the great course and again, kudos to the grounds crew. The course was in incredible shape

Terrific Afternoon

Had a great round. Played with a friend and a guy the course paired with us. Each of us rode a separate cart due to COVID. Got around in 3 hours, 20 miuntes, but played at a comfortable speed. Greens a little slower than usual, but course in good shape. Good value and fun afternoon of golf. Thank you.
