One to write home about

The 150-yard, par-3 14th hole is downhill all the way, allowing a beautiful view of the green and the water hazard that guards it.

Par is always a good score

The 417-yard 18th is a strong finishing hole. Like all the holes on this course, it requires an accurate drive. The second shot into the par-4 is longer than others, however.

Trick or treat

No. 15 is a par-5 reachable in two shots with a good drive. A slough protects the green, however, and any shot right or long will end up in trouble. Good shots are rewarded with a realistic birdie chance.

Overview

A beautiful, fun, challenging course in northern Minnesota lakes country. Straight shots are more important than long ones here, meaning shorter hitters can have good chances at pars and birdies. The clubhouse is worth a stop after a round, too, since it overlooks Lake Bemidji. Walleye, of course, is on the menu. A good hike from Fargo-Moorhead, but worth it.
