Great Golf Courses in the Twin Cities Gateway

Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota Golf Courses

With nine golf courses to choose from, the Twin Cities Gateway offers a golfing experience for all abilities in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area. Maybe it’s from being cooped up for months during winter, but Minnesotans are crazy for golf! And even the most die-hard golfers are sure to find a course to their liking in the Gateway.

So when in the area– whether it be to watch some of the biggest names in golf compete at the annual 3M Open PGA Tournament at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine or just visiting for business or pleasure – make sure you take the time to tee it up on one or more of the area’s golf courses.

Though named for Minnesota’s youth, Victory Links is a links impersonation course that can play up for juniors or well back (stretched to 7,048 yards) for the big-league hitters. As the only PGA Tour-designed course open to the public in Minnesota, its location (in Blaine) makes it readily accessible. In 2014, PGA Tour legend Gary Player toured the 18-hole championship layout and declared the putting surfaces at Victory Links as good as he had ever seen in the public realm.

The course is beautifully landscaped and boasts placid ponds, a driving range and mini-golf course. There are programs for juniors and seniors, beginners and even advanced players. For a truly memorable experience that anyone of any age will enjoy, don’t miss the Glow Golf Nights, played under the stars. The Slicer’s Deli provides great sandwiches and treats between nines or after your round.

Located in Ham Lake, Majestic Oaks Golf Club showcases two championship 18-hole golf courses and an executive nine holer.

The club is also known for The Oaks Bar & Grill, which offers delicious dining, delectable desserts, appetizers and a full bar in a warm, welcoming ambience.

As the state’s only private PGA Tour-owned property, the Tournament Players Club (TPC) Twin Cities was designed by golf legend, Arnold Palmer.
