Last month the online publication, “The Golf Wire,” recognized Giants Ridge as Minnesota’s leading golf resort:
Giants Ridge – Minnesota’s leading golf resort set in the rugged beauty of the Mesabi Iron Range – announces The Quarry skyrocketed in two of Golfweek’s esteemed rankings lists as well as retaining the top spot in Golfweek’s “Best: State-By-State Courses You Can Play” rankings for the sixth consecutive year.
Continuing its reign as the best public course in Minnesota, The Quarry is built on the site of a former sand quarry and iron ore mine. Dramatically raised tees and hazards forged from reclaimed and repurposed mine land set this Jeff Brauer design apart and provide dramatic Iron Range vistas.
In addition to the top billing in Golfweek’s “Best: State-By-State Courses You Can Play” rankings, The Quarry rose 20 spots in the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list to No. 43. Also in Golfweek’s “Top Modern Courses” category, The Quarry soared 52 spots from the previous year to No. 119.
The Legend at Giants Ridge also appeared in the publication’s “Best State-By-State Courses You Can Play” rankings at No. 10. Carved out of the Superior National Forest, The Legend is a true “Northwoods” course featuring towering pines, giant fairways and majestic views of the Wynne and Sabin Lakes.
An easy drive from the Twin Cities, Giants Ridge was the only resort in Minnesota to boast multiple courses in the top-10 of Golfweek’s “Best: State-By-State Courses You Can Play” rankings.
