Beautiful Course in The Cities

If you're not a member, or a friend of one, probably the only way you'll get to play the Southview Country Club will be as a participant in a charity tournament. Trust me, even if you have to play with beginners in a best-ball scramble, the experience will be worth it. Southview is one of the prettiest courses in the Twin Cities, with rolling tree-lined fairways and truly excellent greens. Many of the fairways have a definite slant to them so that balls will roll quite a way right or left of where they land. Placing your tee shot in the right place is imperative. The day I played, the greens were Stimping at about 10.5 or 11, smooth and true. Keep your approach shot below the hole or pay the price. Be sure to enjoy the view from every teebox, and look around you when you arrive on the green. Southview is really a treat for the eyes.

Great Greens, Well Maintained

Mature trees and great condition ensure a pleasurable outing if the Minnesota weather cooperates. Typically the greens are quite fast and some are especially difficult to hit.
