Home State to the 2016 Ryder Cup, beautiful Minnesota is known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. Large expanses of forests, prairies and lakes make this one of the most popular States to holiday in. Although Hazeltine National is the most recognised golf course, top public courses you can play include the Ridges at Sand Creek, the Meadows at Mystic Lake, and the superb courses at Madden’s Golf - located in the beautiful city of Brainerd.
Claiming more golfers per capita than any other US city, Minneapolis is simply a must visit whilst in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, with an endless supply of stunning courses and resorts. Hyatt Regency Minneapolis and Loews Minneapolis both offer incredible 5-star accommodation in the heart of the city, just a stone’s throw from the magnificent Mississippi River and yet still near many excellent courses. Play the likes of Mystic Lake, StoneRidge and Prestwick for an experience unlike any other.
The beautiful city of Brainerd is dotted with some of Minnesota’s many gorgeous lakes. Featuring superb courses and resorts, Brainerd is one of North America’s most highly rated golfing destinations. Stay and play at Cragun’s Resort for brilliant accommodation and excellent golf, with the onsite Dutch’s Legacy and Bobby’s Legacy courses. For a great golf trail we highly recommend the Classic Course at Madden’s and the Pines Course at Grand View Lodge.
