Fun Course Great Staff
Very friendly folks and a very nice course to play especially love holes 2, 3 and the back 9 is a great layout.
The course was in poor shape with weeds/clovers all over the fairways. The greens were very splotchy and badly in need of care. We have played this course in the past and it can be a really nice course with interesting features off the tee box but the current state of the course is poor.
Hi, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game, and we will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Tianna Country Club. We hope to see you again soon.
Blind shots galore, slow greens; repetitive and deceptive design
This is a nearly 100 year old golf course (at least the front 9 is) and shows its age in terms of design choices. Excessively small, crowned greens; blind shots galore; and several very short Par 4s on the front 9. Most holes have an elevated tee hitting downhill to the fairway, with the second shot back uphill - and in several cases severely uphill. This is a maddening course even if you’re hitting it well. You have very little idea where a shot will end up until you go up to the fairway/green. There are also places where hitting into the group ahead of you is very likely given the blind tee shot.
Course conditions were fair at best. It has been dry, and in places the rough is hard pan. The fairways are soft and shaggy, while the greens are cut far too high, running at an 8 or slower. The cart paths are also in desperate need of repair/renovation. I suppose this course has a captive audience with the Walker / Leech Lake cabin crowd, but it could certainly do so much better, especially since there are a few legitimately cool holes on the course (2, 3, 5 among them).
Also, I started about 12:30 on a Saturday on a holiday weekend. The pace of play was fine, but on the front 9 I saw the beverage cart 4 times, before I even needed it. They had carts going on both sides. This is great, but then on the back 9 no beverage cart was anywhere to be seen, and there were no water coolers (there was at least one on the front).
The experience at Tianna overall just isn’t great and definitely isn’t worth the price tag.
Hello, thank you for taking the time to review our course. We appreciate your dedication to playing our course over the years but are very sorry to hear your recent experience with us may have been poor due to the course conditions.
We greatly value your feedback as we work towards any necessary improvements and hope you will notice some of these improvements during your next round with us. Thank you for choosing our course, and we hope to see you again soon.
Alot of blind shots with almost all greens elevated. Would be a little easier next time. Long par 4s from the whites.

HIDDEN GEM IN NORTHWEST MINNESOTA
TIANNA GREAT TRACK
ELEVATION CHANGES ON EVERY HOLE
GREEN SPEED WAS EXCELLENT

ONE OF THE GREATEST PAR 3'S YOU WILL EVER PLAY HOLE TWO 170 YARDS DOWN HILL THROUGH A SHOOT OF TALL TREES.
IF YOU LIVE IN MINNESOTA OR NORTH DAKOTA DEFINITELY A BUCKET LIST COURSE
Great course, but need to upgrade the carts
Beautiful challenging course! I just wish they would upgrade more of their carts. Ours was really noisy and jerky, but our playing partners got a quiet newer one.
A pleasant surprise
I haven’t had as much fun on a golf course since I played La Reunion in Guatemala 5 years ago (destroyed last summer by the volcano it was built on) and both of the courses at Giants Ridge last fall. And that is saying a lot. We had an absolute blast playing hilly Tianna country club. If I lived closer I’d play it every week. It was in terrific shape and many of the holes have a lot of interest. The hills gave it an amusement park kind of side fun just navigating the course. Generous fairways are easy to hit, but the many elevated tapered off greens made it challenging. The greens made it a little tough for me to get close enough to the flag to card birdies, but there will be plenty of pars for a mid handicap golfer who can drive the ball 240 plus yards. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun outing on a layout that’s sure to be different than your typical course. The tap beer was cold and the Bloody Mary with beef stick was pretty darn good too.
