Recognized as one of the top five golf courses in Minnesota
A stunning masterpiece, our 18-hole Donald Ross-designed golf course—with famously challenging greens—is recognized as one of the top 5 in Minnesota and in 2013 one of the top 100 Classic Golf Courses in the United States.
Come Experience Our Award-Winning Course for Yourself
Recognition as an award-winning golf course is an honor for everyone here at Northland Country Club. But the Northland community— members, staff, and guests— know this is something special even without making the list of top courses in the nation. Just take a look...
The course features 6,825 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. The wooded, gently rolling course, with amazing views of Lake Superior, is tough enough for low handicappers, yet is still eminently enjoyable for higher handicappers.
The fairways are tree-lined and bordered by a standard cut of rough. The fast greens vary in size, shape and undulation, and their speeds are determined by the seasonal weather conditions. Water hazards come into play often as features of at least seven holes.
Play Where Conditions are Always Top Notch
The hallmarks of a championship caliber course go beyond world-class design and stunning vistas. Conditions have to be maintained, and at Northland Country Club, that’s taken very seriously. You’ll find that, thanks to our expert staff, every inch of the course is impeccably maintained with painstaking detail. The goal is maximum playability and enjoyment for our members and their guests.
Legendary Golf, Designed by a Legendary Figure
Northland Country Club’s Donald Ross-designed course isn’t just a gorgeous, brilliantly designed golf course. It’s also a small piece of golfing history. Many people don’t realize this, but Donald Ross is known for laying the foundation of America’s golf industry.
Hailing from the Scotland, where golf was invented, Ross spent his life savings to move to the U.S. around the turn of the century. His first job was at a country club and the rest is history. He designed about 400 courses during the first half of the 20th century, providing a classic, natural blueprint for the gold standard of golf course design during that period.
Northland Country Club is immensely proud to support America’s historical legacy of golf with our classic, gorgeous Donald Ross course.
