Jackson Golf Club - Region 3 - Southern Region
Reviewed by:  Jon Beckman - Jackson, MN. Jon shoots in the 80's.
Review Summary:  Southern Minnesota boasts a large handful of 9 hole courses and this one may provide a stiffer challenge than most. Smaller greens, abundant trees, hilly terrain, and fast greens make this course play difficult at times. Par is 37 but if you do not bring your "A" game, you could easily find yourself in the 50's. You must have your creative juices flowing when you play as you will definitely need to be creative with at least 3 or 4 shots per round.
Conditions:  Very, very green course. Everything seems to be kept up with for the most part.
Scenery: When you are playing in a small rural farming community, scenery is going to be scarce. With that said, I would never recommend a course like this for its scenery, but on occasion it does offer some nice views looking back towards the city of Jackson which is located along the Des Moines river valley.
Layout: This course is a 9 hole course with 2 extra holes for practice. As mentioned before, par is 37 with six par fours, two par fives, and one par three. There are a handful of blind shots you will have to navigate yourself through.
Services: The service is very good and friendly!

Jackson Golf Club - Region 3 - Southern Region
Reviewed by:  Nate Hodnefield - Jackson, MN. Nate shoots in the 80's.
Review Summary:  Great little 9 hole run. Well kept, by a tremendous superintendent! The great thing about this golf course is that the greens fees don't set you back a chunk of change.
Conditions:  Lots of trees and hills, that make for some very difficult shots.
Layout: Lots of small greens that have some very difficult pin placements.
Services: The service is great!

Jackson Golf Club - Region 3 - Southern Region
Reviewed by:  Josh Junker - Redwood Falls, MN. Josh shoots in the 80's.
Review Summary:  Very nice 9-hole course. Many blind landing areas for tee shots. You don't feel completely safe about your tee shot until you actually get up and see it.
Conditions:  Course was in good shape. Greens rolled nicely. Fairways were not cut short enough, however.
Senery:  Nice scenery. Course was designed in a hilly basin and the elevation changes make it unique.
Layout: Many elevation changes, combined with small greens.
Services: Service was fine.
