Good Course for a Draw
The Signature Course at Majestic Oaks Golf Club is a beast from the tips, 7,330 yards long with a 140 slope and 75.2 rating. The standard men’s tees are at a more reasonable 6,472 yards, 135 slope and 71.3 rating, and there are three other sets of tees to choose from so the course may be played by golfers of various skill levels. The course is set on a very interesting tract of land meandering between higher ground with stands of oaks and lower ground where the fairways are bordered by marshy penalty areas. There are no severe elevation changes, but the rolling terrain does allow for some elevated tees and a few holes where the approach to the green is definitely uphill. Since we played the course during the second week of December, a real bonus in Minnesota, this review will not deal with course conditions, which were obviously different than they would be in mid-summer. One of the things that struck us about the course was the tendency for the architect to favor left doglegs over right doglegs. A right handed golfer with good control of a draw off the tee will definitely have an advantage here. Another thing that stood out was the similarity of several of the holes. Holes 3 and 11, for example, are 398 and 399 yards long from the Gold tees, turn slightly left, and have fairway bunkers on the left side at about 250 yards from the tee. Holes 4 and 12 are par 3’s set at 183 and 176 yards from the Gold tees and both have well-bunkered elevated greens. Also interesting is that both pairs of holes run adjacent to each other. As noted earlier, the ability to draw the ball is a real advantage on this course, and this is especially true on holes 1 and 9. On both of these holes a long hitter who goes too far straight or slightly right may end up going through the fairway and not have a shot to the green. If you’re not comfortable drawing the driver, it might be better to take a fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. I had not played this course during the regular season, coming here only when it was one of the few open in December. However, I will definitely plan to include it in my schedule next year.
It is a great course. It is difficult if you are not accurate off the ter
The course was in great shape, the greens were fantastic. The wind made things a little more difficult than usual. Thank goodness for the Beverage Goddesses Olivia and Eva, they kept us hydrated and happy all the way around. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that asks.
We enjoyed this course. It had a nice feel to it. Conditions were good. There were some tee boxes that were in rough shape, Greens were fast and true..
Dog Legs for days
Lots of dog leg lefts on the front. Didn’t even hit driver the first nine. Fun course with some nicely placed. Hazards.
Solid place to practice going long off the tee. It had rained the night before but the course had proper drainage.
Nice golf course
Fun course to play. Thought the pace of play was a little slow at four and a half hours long. Would definitely play it again
Good value for a challenging course
Good layout! Decent greens below avg condition but not bad for the price. This course could be special with some TLC and care to the tee boxes... terrible pin locations...
Majestic Oaks Signature is a joke
What a joke. The architect tried way too hard on this one. Excessively bunkered green complexes, poorly conceived tee shot landing areas, and poor sight lines. From the back tees this is 7200+ yards and a rating of over 75, yet this isn’t hosting any significant events because it’s not a fair test of golf. The tricky greens don’t roll true or hold shots, even those with sufficient spin. Pace of play is ~4:30+ because anyone who isn’t a single digit handicap has to grind beyond belief to make bogey or better. The 10th hole is nowhere near the clubhouse, leaving a ~200 yard or so walk to the grill (where there are no quick food or drink items for the turn) to refill your water, which you’d better do since there are no coolers on the course. At $45/person, they are simply stealing. One of the worst values in the Twin Cities. Don’t bother!
Lots of trees and dogleg holes make hitting the ball straight a must if you are going to score. Challenging greens with lots of movement make accuracy important too. Looking forward to playing again.
Majestic Oaks Redux
We played this course quite often in the 90’s when we lived in the TC. The course has grown up in the last 20 year’s. Still very nice, with nice views and lots of wildlife. Many more houses on course but this doesn’t impact experience. We will be back!
The course is okay, layout can be confusing on some transitions and the grass needs to be cut. Bunkers weren't in the best shape but the greens were fairly good. A nice set of tees so you can play a range of distances. I enjoyed the course through about 7 holes and then it started to go south. Staff is fine, clubhouse isn't anything special. Restaurant has good food, and they give you a free appetizer with each round. That is pretty cool. Decent course, a little expensive for what you get. Not a bad course, but definitely average.
Nice layout, a bit shaggy...
It was a good layout, good greens, rest of course was a bit shaggy. Not as crisp as you would expect for the money. It had been several days since fairways were mowed. Actually caught a flier in the fairway.
Unfortunate, could be nice track.
