Minnesota Golf Resorts
Minnesota is a fantastic place to play golf. The many
fine Minnesota golf resorts located in various parts of
the state are perfect destinations for your summer get-away.
Listing all the Minnesota golf resorts and their amenities
would be quite lengthy and the space of this article does
not permit that degree of detail. Instead I will highlight
a couple of favorite Minnesota golf resort destinations,
but rest assured that there are many other fine locations
across the state.
Perhaps the premier Minnesota golf resort destination
is the Brainerd lakes area. Golf Digest magazine agrees
and lists this area of Minnesota as one of the top golf
destinations in the USA. Madden's, Cragun's and Grand
View Lodge are just a few of the Minnesota golf resorts
in the Brainerd lakes area and represent the larger
golf resort experience. But what if you want a smaller
experience? Here is a suggestion; why not check out
Birch Bay Resort which has it's own 9-hole golf course
along with cabin rental as well as water activities
for the entire family.
The Alexandria area is another favorite destination
and another fine Minnesota golf resort is the Arrowwood
Resort and Conference Center on the shores of Lake Darling.
You can experience golf at Atikwa Golf Club at Arrowwood
as well as the many fine area golf courses that call
Alexandria their home. Alexandria is also the boyhood
home of PGA Tour player and past USA Ryder Cup Captain
The Detroit Lakes area is another hidden gem in Minnesota
and a golf resort that doesn't get nearly enough attention
from the Twin Cities population base is the Fair Hills
Resort featuring the Wild Flower Golf Course. As with
the Arrowwood Resort near Alexandria you can stay at
Fair Hills and make this your home base while you spend
the week discovering the other fine local golf courses
just a short drive away.
The Native American Tribes of Minnesota have added
to the golf resort landscape in recent years with the
introduction of fine courses such as Dacotah Ridge near
Morton, Minnesota and the Wilderness at Fortune Bay
near Tower, Minnesota. There are lodging, restaurants
and casino facilities near by so you can stay and play
as long as you wish.
The Old Barn Resort and Rivers' Bend Golf Course is
a Minnesota golf resort that specializes in a wide variety
of family activities. Nestled in the Root River bluff
country near Preston, which is located in southeastern
Minnesota, this is a camping and golf experience that
will have you coming back again and again.
Thumper Pond, near the city of Ottertail in northwestern
Minnesota, offers the complete golf resort experience.
In addition to the golf course there is also a spa,
indoor waterpark and of course lodging and dining facilities.
As you can see there numerous choices offered in Minnesota
golf resorts such as areas of the state to stay and
play as well as services offered at each facility. This
is just a small listing of what Minnesota has to offer
as you plan your next golf get-away.
