Cragun's Legacy Courses - Dutch Legacy - Region 1

Well deserving of its 5-star rating. My favorite golf destination in Minnesota and the friendly staff always makes us feel welcome. I organize group golf trips and they are the best facility to work with that I have found.

Legacy Courses at Cragun's - Dutch Front Nine - Region 1
Tough Par: Hole #5, Uphill 445 yard par 4. Hit it hard off the tee; choose your club carefully for the approach to this sloping green. Take par and run to the next tee.
Pay Attention To The G.P.S.:  Hole 4, 171-yard par three with a deep green, yardage is crucial to avoid a long putt.
Best Chance for Birdie:  Hole #1, 370 yard slight dogleg left, lots of room off the tee.
Honest Par 5: Hole 9, 500 yard straightaway par 5. Generous fairway off the tee, lay up to a wide landing area, approach to sloping green requires precision, stay below the hole, do not go left!
Risk/Reward: Hole 3, short 318 yard par 4 dogleg right around a lake. Laying up to the 150 yard stake is advised, cut more off and leave yourself a short wedge to the two tiered green. Stay below the Hole!
Best Par 3: Hole 6, 143 yards, over a wetland to a large green with deceptive slopes. Only the brave try the 239-yard Black tees here.
Tees Abound: Each hole features at least 5 teeing areas with 5 sets of tee markers to choose from.
Audubon Signature Sanctuary: Robert Trent Jones Jr. incorporated many natural features such as wetlands, forest, and a 100-acre lake.
Don't Forget To: Enjoy the view from the tee box on the third hole. You will view many species of waterfowl.
Legacy Courses at Cragun's - Dutch Back Nine - Region 1
Best Chance for Birdie: Hole 16, 492 yard par 5. Prevailing wind is behind you as you tee off to the widest fairway on the course. Long hitters can reach in two; short hitters have an easy lay up with a very receptive green.
Tough Par: Hole 14, 431 yard par 4. Flat dogleg right with a forced carry over wetlands from the tee and on your approach to this undulated green. Par is a great score!
Pay Attention To The G.P.S.: Hole 13, 480 yard par 5. This hole requires you r full attention from the tee shot over a wetland to a perpendicular fairway to the lay up. Approaches to the green must be studied as the green is 47 yards deep and has many slopes.
Best Par 3: Hole 17, 135 yard par three. Play carefully as this green has two tiers. A front left pin location can yield the elusive hole in one with the fortunate roll back down the slope.
Honest Par 5: Hole 18, 519 yard par 5. Accuracy is important off the tee, lay up and approach are uphill to a well guarded green. Three quality shots are needed to make par.
Risk/Reward: Hole 11, 366 yard par 4. This hole features two routes off the tee. Left is safe but longer, right is risky but gives you a short wedge to the green.
Tees Abound: Each hole features at least 5 teeing areas with 5 sets of tee markers to choose from.
Audubon Signature Sanctuary: Robert Trent Jones Jr. incorporated many natural features such as wetlands, forest, and a 100-acre lake.
Don't Forget To: Enjoy the view on the par three 12th hole. Lake Legacy is on your left.
