Well maintained for a county course,but no ball washers near tee or anywhere in the course. Basic practice facilities, no sand bunkers or space for pitching, but you can chip and putt.

Needwood has been one of my favorites for quite a while now. Nothing too difficult but always fun and it is nice to be able to get a quick nine in on the Executive course

Well maintained for a municipal course. The amenities, pro shop, snack bar and practice facilities are basic but functional. Green speeds were uneven the last time out. In June the nats are out so bring some bug spray. It's a pretty course with a few notable challenging holes. Everyone was friendly and play moved along ok.

I've been playing Needwood for 15 years. Always enjoy being here. I believe the County took over management recently...hope all the good work MNPPC put in while they were in charge does not go to waste.
This course has two of the best finishing holes in the state in #16 and #18...both are potential round wreckers!!
