This course is tucked surrealistically - almost magically - in the heart of an industrial park w/mixed retirement/retail space. Once you enter the rabbit-hole clubhouse and onto the course - you have no visible hint that any of that is nearby. The course is laid out link-style - basically an Executive-9 'midget-links'. The compact course construction lacks fairway separation by trees so that more than one tee-off has competing flags from other fairways - making your shot confusing sometimes as to which green you are playing and each green has TWO flags (Yello/easy, Red/hard). But it is a beautiful little course, well maintained and a fun social course. A course you will remember.

We love this little executive course. It is usually in very good shape. Remember this is an urban, municipal course, and as such is still very green and pretty with several water hazards and mature trees. The greens offer a choice of two holes, based on difficulty, and are challenging enough. We can always get on and there are not very many tools who are teeing off behind you before you hit the green. It is also super affordable. You should go.

Decent course in Edina but its in the same city as Edina Country Club and Interlachen Country Club. Not bad.
