Rated as the Number One Resort Course in Minnesota by Golf Digest, The Pines layout at this 63-hole facility showcases three unique 9-hole courses, The Lakes, The Woods and The Marsh. Each nine truly lives up to its name and has been carefully set among rolling hills and forest. The Pines features four or more tees on every hole.

Even the pre-round activities here are top-notch. For example, the practice facility features three separate putting greens, a two-sided driving range and a complete short game practice area, leaving little opportunity to blame a poor game on the lack of a proper warm-up.
