In the Twin Cities, one of Minnesota's best golf courses is Highland National Golf Course in St. Paul, which was redesigned in 2005 as a longer and more challenging course framed by mature trees with great greens. The signature hole is the 15th with the Snoopy shaped bunker in honor of Charles Schultz who learned to play golf there.
The Pines at Grand View Lodge in Brainerd features Deacon's Lodge, one of Minnesota's best golf courses that was opened in 1999 and hailed as Arnold Palmer's finest design. The course is set among three wilderness lakes, wetlands and a beautiful forest, with numerous waste bunkers and an intimidating layout.
