The weather is warming up and the grass shoots are becoming visible at last. With a shift in seasons and warmer temperatures arriving, many people are beginning to crave what is probably the most leisurely and enjoyable of summer activities: golf.
With golf balls and a new set of irons in hand, you are getting ready for this summer’s golfing season. The question is: where are you going to go?
MN Golf Courses on the Iron Range
The Iron Range hosts some of the best golf courses in Minnesota. They are uniquely nestled into Minnesota’s great outdoors, providing breathtaking views and opportunities for fresh air and exercise. Since these courses have some of the highest ratings in the state – and country – choosing between them can be challenging.
Are You Looking for Something New?
Every year since its grand opening, the Wilderness at Fortune Bay has received high ratings and major national attention. Designed by the same architect as the Legend and the Quarry at Giants Ridge, it is a unique masterpiece. Golfers often comment on the rustic beauty and solitude of this course, which winds through deep forests on the shores of Lake Vermilion and offers breathtaking landscapes to enjoy.
Speaking of Giants Ridge…
The Giants Ridge Ski and Golf Resort holds two separate golf courses: the Legend and the Quarry.
The Legend is set next to the clear, sparkling waters of Minnesota’s lakes – and poses a challenge like none other. The Quarry is dedicated to the mining heritage of the Iron Range, with each hole representing one of the area’s historic mines. Avid golfers are well-familiar with these two courses, yet never seem to grow tired of revisiting their fairways.
Fortune Bay and Giants Ridge may have some of the most famous courses in the region – but they aren’t the only golf masterpieces in Minnesota.
If you are looking for a delightful afternoon on a local course, visit Virginia, Eveleth, Hibbing, or Hoyt Lakes. Their city golf courses are competitive and enjoyable, and provide an opportunity to improve your game without having to travel a long distance to do it.
If you haven’t found the perfect MN golf course yet, don’t worry: a new season is just around the bend.
