Unbelievable remodel on the river 9!!! I can't wait to come back. I also can't wait to see what the canyon plays like when it's complete. Keep up the great job up there.

This course was the most beautiful course I've been too yet. On one hole you will see the Popular River waterfall, Lutsen Mountain Ski area, and a gorgeous wilderness view- behind you is Lake Superior. We were waiting for groups because it was rainy all...More

Great golf course with spectacular views of Lake Superior on a few of the holes. Fun way to spend the afternoon on a few tricky holes.

This course has some great views, but the 2 courses are in terrible condition. Greens look really nice, but they are rock hard and one green will be fast, the next slow. Dead grass is more prevalent in the fairway than living grass. Tee boxes...More
