Lester Park Golf Course Reviews

Reviewed by: Mike Moyle - Duluth, MN - Mike shoots in the 80s.
Review Summary: A good local course that is well priced at $25. Outstanding views from many places on the course, but it could be in better shape, and is only moderately challenging.
Conditions: Has been in pretty bad shape for the past 3 years, and the city seems to have little interest in sprucing it up. Has some hills, especially on the Lake Nine, but the other two nines can be walked with only a little huffing and puffing.
Scenery: Really remarkable in some places, looking out over Lake Superior. The "Lake Nine" is honestly breathtaking in some spots, despite being in poor condition much of the time.
Layout: The Lake Nine is very well designed, and would be a tough but fair challenge, but has not been properly maintained. The Front and Back Nine are older, and just slightly better designed that your typical muni. Hackers will want to avoid the Lake Nine, unless they have (I'm not exaggerating) a dozen extra balls with them.
Services: Usually competent and friendly, but these are mostly just high school and college kids working a summer job.
