Great “cut your teeth” course
Nothing too scary about this course unless all the par 3s will intimidate you. Just a couple sand traps and one water feature to gobble your score up. The rest of the tricks are YOU hitting the ball straight and keeping it out of the woods.
Lots of chasms and hills to traverse. The green 30’ above your head on number 11 is fun. A couple courageous trees even helping guard the green make this a fun test at par.
The staff are fantastic from the range all the way through.
Big hitters need not bring a driver. Come out and impress us with your long iron work.
Virtually unplayed “safe” course
My father-in-law and I play here every time I come to visit the Brainerd area. This is a great course for beginning to moderate players. Nothing too scary about it and not a lot of trouble with some vast fairways to find.
The front 9 has the most variety with a couple blind tee shots and some interesting blind approaches if you leave yourself short off the tee. (Can be challenging on windy days)
The back 9 plays more like an executive course with some tighter fairways and several par 3s to test your iron work.
If you can bomb a tee shot, there are a couple greens in range on this course which make it awfully tempting to “go for it.”
This year, there hasn’t been a ton of traffic and the maintenence team has done a great job keeping the course in great shape.
If you play here, please be responsible and fix your ball marks on the green. Don’t be a “tourist” and commit such a party foul. The locals will judge you mercilessly behind your back and you’ve got enough bad joo-joo in your back swing without them on your tail. Go grab a new personal best on this forgiving par 67 course.
Great course for every skill level
I took my parents here for an easy day out. They both routinely shoot 130+ and each were under 120, not many lost balls and had a great time. Not too difficult, but does have some challenging holes. Very laid back and helpful staff. Course was in get shape. Nice family course.
