Review by Mr. Tee
This 24 acre pond and park was brought to our attention by our guest reviewer/designer Jared. We had meant to play the course with him but feeling spontaneous celebrating our three year anniversary, we decided to take it in on a rare warm Fall Minnesota day.
Par - If you’ve followed our blog at all, you’ll know that our bias leans towards kitsch / fun themed courses with lots of oversized obstacles. I gave the game of golf a try as a kid and it just never stuck. Mini golf was far more fun and less frustrating. All of this explains why we gave this a course our “average” rating of par. The course is meticulously landscaped and maintained. The real sand traps and large pond were a fun change of pace for us. The surrounding park is nice but it’s hard to ignore the massive condos and shopping malls outlining the whole area. If you’re a golfer, it’s definitely a good place to bone up on your putting skills. It definitely challenged us and I don’t believe either of us even got par on any of the holes. If you’re bringing kids that aren’t regular golfers or if you’re putting skills aren’t so hot, it could be a long frustrating experience.
