With nearly 500 golf courses in Minnesota, there are many great options available to those in the area. However, when looking at lists ranking the top courses in the state, golf architect Jeffrey D. Brauer’s designs seem to consistently place. Gold Advisor’s writer, Jason Scott Deegan, took special note of Brauer’s designs for four separate categories on his list of, “Summer Swing: The best of Minnesota golf courses and resorts.”
Minnesota golf: Best public course
Built on the site of an old sand and gravel mining operation, The Quarry at Giants Ridge in Biwabik is as rugged as it is beautiful. If it weren’t so remote — located three hours north of the Twin Cities near the Superior National Forest — more golfers would be raving about it.
Best public 19th hole bar/restaurant
The Wilderness Grill at The Wilderness at Fortune Bay in Tower serves spectacular food with a view to match. Hart raves about the Wild Duck Soup.
Minnesota’s best resort for golf
Giants Ridge features two spectacular tracks: The Quarry and The Legend, designed by Jeff Brauer. The courses play completely different from one another.
Minnesota’s most scenic course
Brauer has renovated and revived Superior National at Lutsen, a scenic 27-hole course overlooking Lake Superior four hours northeast of the Twin Cities. By spending $4.5 million, ownership is pushing for a “Top 100” type of experience.
