In March of 2014, after years of struggling to find its permanent owners, Riverwood National of Otsego finally received the financial stability it had been waiting for. At the peak of its second season new owners, Sauer Golf Group, have dramatically transformed their latest acquisition; bringing it to the same high standard as their sister course just a few miles away, Cedar Creek in Albertville.
The first step in Sauer's major commitment to improve playing conditions was to bring in Derek Fredrickson, a very experienced and proven superintendent from Troy Burne, their Hudson, WI gem. Fredrickson and his crew have been working tirelessly and players have noticed. Golfers that haven't been out for a few years are ecstatic about the turnaround, and the members couldn't be more pleased with the efforts.
With the vastly improved conditions and four sets of tees, this 7,000+ yard course is now a true champion of the northwest metro. The modern clubhouse, banquet facilities that comfortably seat 180 for dinner, and a driving range that can accommodate up to 75 golfers at one time, have quickly made Riverwood National a top choice for corporate golf tournaments. For that group looking for something a bit different, The Vintage Golf Course can also provide a fun day for everyone.
Connected via tunnel to Riverwood National, The Vintage is a great training ground and low stress recreational facility. Opened in 2000, the 18-hole par 58 executive golf course has its own clubhouse and is a prime golf course for seniors, juniors and novice golfers alike. The Vintage was the first course in the Twin Cities to offer the TaylorMade 15" cup, and the response has been astounding! The 15" cups have offered young families a great day of golf, and fun non-intimidating golf events for players with little or no experience.
Riverwood National and The Vintage were the perfect addition to Sauer Golf Group's portfolio of courses. Located just a few miles from their sister course Cedar Creek in Albertville, "3 for 1" season passes now allow members to take advantage of unlimited play at three distinctly different northwest metro golf courses; a value not to be found anywhere else in the area.
