Review Summary: A challenging and unusually pretty public course, and a hell of a deal at $25 per round. Older folks may want a cart, though... its hilly. My favorite course in northern Minnesota, for any price.
Conditions: Usually "good". Not outstanding, but much better than you would expect for the price.
Scenery: Its a pretty course with a view of Lake Superior from 600 feet up, lots of scenic overlooks, The view looking down on the St Louis River from 13 tee is truly memorable
Layout: Very well done, with the exception of the "Back" Nine, which is old fashioned and has some frankly dumb holes. Play Front-Middle if you can. If you only have time for 9, play the Middle Nine, unless you are a scratch shooter, in which case the Front nine is for you.
Services: Ah, well, its a public course. They are friendly and competent, and make a good hamburger. But if you want something better, plan on eating elsewhere.
