If you trust the ratings and rankings of local and national professional publications, Wild Marsh is on the way up. Rapidly. GolfPass recently had them Top 20 in the State.
Troy Burne Golf Club offers one of the most pleasant Minnesota to Wisconsin commutes as you turn south on Carmichael Road from I94. Lush farm fields flank both sides of County Road F, followed by a postcard-like horse ranch.
Links golf could never be confused with parkland style. Links incorporates all the elements found along the windy, lonely sand dune strewn coastlines that envelope the circumference of Scotland’s majestic landscape.
Let’s start with the obvious – 45 holes of golf! Not many operations can say that. Two championship 18-hole courses and an executive nine. It sort of goes without saying that Majestic Oaks Golf Club has something for everybody.
A golfer’s very first drive on their very first hole happens nearly every day at Island Lake Golf Course. The nearly 30-year-old golf happening in Shoreview, is a mecca for a golfer’s inaugural drive, putt, or lesson.
I’m happy to add Heritage Links to your radar (or in most cases your Google Maps memory). With so many choices, I would strongly encourage some exploration in the Lakeville area.

I don’t know if you’ve taken notice or what golf magazine you subscribe to, but municipal golf is enjoying a resurgence in respect.

Royalty can be a tight rope walk. It requires that you put on a good public face while taking care of business in the back end. To accomplish this, you need to have your ship in order.
I’ve gushed plenty about Deer Run over the years and as I look back and wonder if I haven’t oversold its pristine playing conditions, or its best-in-class practice facility, its charming old-school meets contemporary clubhouse atmosphere and its second-to-none customer service experience.
When Crystal Lake Golf Club opened in 1995, the golfing summer was dominated by names like Daly, Elkington, Pavin, Crenshaw, and Norman. In 2023, golfers flocking to Lakeville, will learn the names of Orlando, Maize, and Temple.

New is good. Different is good. Fun is good. Challenge is good. Hole-in-ones are beyond good. The newest addition to the Brainerd golf destination collection has embraced all these philosophies and wrapped them up into a tidy two-hour round of golf that over-delivers on all fronts.
There is so much that can be said about Golden Eagle Golf Club. We can start with its jaw-dropping northern Minnesota setting on 210 acres and the minor miracle that this 18-hole championship design was carved out of the raw wilderness.
