Love this course. Conditions are great, layout is challanging, greens are in great condition and require an extra look when reading.
Pace was very slow today which was an exception as it is usually a good pace, but last round of the season here brings everyone out.
Facilities and grill are great. Scenery is mindblowing.
It is one of those courses you would like to play all the time.
thing to add
Beautiful first 9, second much rougher. Need more ball washers with towels, come on. Put out a few garbage
Ok course in decent shape.
Course was ok......some quirky holes. Very slow......took almost 4:45 to play. No marshall on course. Go play Mississippi National Highlands course which is only ten minutes away before this course. Layout is way better and is in better shape.
This was a fun course. I play on a flat links course at home. This place is lined with trees and very hilly. A nice change. The fairways were generous and in great condition. the greens were perfect and very fast. Staff was friendly. No crowds during the week. A great experience.
We will be back for sure!!!
Overall excellent if we could leave 100⭐ review we would. The staff was excellent exceptionally friendly and helpful and very generous with hospitality. Very well maintained. I would personally live on this course if I could. I can not wait to come back!
I drove 5 hours to play here
I drove from Wisconsin to play here off of the golf digest recommendation and I was over joyed when I arrived. They are More than friendly. Helped out with tips before I hit the course. And the drinks and almost nothing. Will be making the trip again soon. You guys rock.
We arrived well ahead of our tee time because we were not sure how long it would take to get there from the Twin Cities.
We were greeted by a friendly staff who allowed us to tee off early.
The course has a lot of holes with major elevation changes, and amazing views.
Wouldn’t walk it, but it was a fun change of pace.
Lives up to its reputation
A real treat to finally play this historical old course. Excellent condition, really nice greens that play faster than the greens I'm used to in the South Metro public courses. Mature hardwood trees define most of the fairways and can make you pay with a punch out to get back into play, but on most of those holes you feel like you had a fair chance of hitting the fairway and the miss was on you.
First timers: if you aren't experienced in adjusting club selections for elevation changes, you might want to go in with a mindset of just enjoying the experience and tearing up the scorecard. There are many holes where you're hitting up or down significantly to the green. To compound that on the uphill shots, you sometimes may not be quite sure about the shape and size of the green or where a good miss would be. Good fun, bad scores :)
Another thing that might get first timers is how to play some of the less-than-driver tee shots on dogleg Holes #8 and #14 especially, and possibly #16 and #17 for bigger hitters. I think course experience would help immensely on those. The tee shot on #8 is one of the more intimidating shots you'll come across. You're coming out of chute in the woods that feels about twenty yards wide to a landing area that looks from the tee to be about the size of a green. Dense woods the whole way left, right, and long, and you need about 200 yards to get to the right angle dogleg and have a clear second shot.
My group of first-timers loved the front 9 layout (except for #8) and weren't quite as favorable to the back 9 because of the layout of the holes mentioned above. But it won't keep us from coming back.
One more thing - hats off to you if you walk 18 on this course. You must be in terrific shape!
This course is a gem. I look forward to playing again.
Left after 3 holes, was going on 1hr and 15mins and the 4th tee box didnt even tee off yet, and the group ahead of them just got on the green. What i did play the course seemed good shape, greens were in great shape. Just angry i drove an hour to play just to pack up and leave. Another downfall is they have no driving range or a place to warm up besides putting.
