Northland Country Club Memberships

The founders of Northland Country Club dreamed of creating a superb golf course and club with a limited Membership. Over 100 years later, that tradition continues. Membership at Northland is a legacy of pride, and it’s a place where you’ll find your own. In addition to our 18-hole, par 71 golf course, we offer two lighted tennis courts, Duluth’s only heated outdoor pool, a beautiful new Clubhouse featuring full dining and banquet services. All of our Memberships give you the opportunity to make lasting friendships, work, play, entertain and share in a special kind of camaraderie you have to experience to fully understand.


Play.   Relax.   Belong.

At Northland Country Club, we are known for our premium amenities:  Our Donald Ross designed Course is often rated as one of the top 100 classic golf courses in the United States and one of the top five courses in Minnesota.  It provides an excellent escape for avid golfers and those who are just learning the game.  We host Duluth’s only outdoor heated pool and expansive sundeck, where kids and adults take swimming lessons, swim laps, splash around and enjoy a cold drink and delicious meal.  Our two hardcourt tennis courts (and Pickleball court option) are enjoyed by members of all ages throughout the day and evening, often with a little instruction from our Tennis Professional.  Our creative, seasoned Chefs serve delicious cuisine in our two dining areas, three private meeting rooms, Grand Ballroom and verandas and patio.  We host many fun events throughout the year – some just for adults and others for families – like our French Dinner, Adult Winter Party, brunch with Santa, wine tastings, holiday buffets, golf tournaments, Pickleball leagues, kids’ movie nights, cocktail parties and much more.

The heart and soul of our Club is our fun, diverse Membership and the Community they create.

Even given our world-class amenities, the number one reason why people join Northland Country Club is the wonderful community of people that make up our Club.  It is a diverse, fun community of people made up of retired couples, young professionals with young children, life-time Duluthians, people new to Duluth, people extremely passionate about golf and those who are just learning, people who crave a stay-cation and lounge at our pool as much as possible, foodies who love the creative and delicious cuisine our Chefs prepare and generally people who want to enjoy the good things that life offers.

Live on vacation

When you step on the grounds of Northland Country Club, you will experience the exceptional service of our staff as you enjoy our gorgeous amenities.  Our goal is for you to sigh as you come in the driveway, knowing you are about to find space to unwind and enjoy all that we offer with friends and family.  Rather than packing up and heading out of town to enjoy time away, our members love to drive a few minutes from their home to a place they don’t have to work to keep up; a place where they can live on vacation.

What some of our members are saying . . .

“I moved to Duluth with my family three years ago.  We didn’t know anyone in town.  We became members at Northland and have found an incredible community of fun people and made some life-long friends.”

“We always feel welcome and are able to be outdoors and engaged in activities as a family.”

“The golf course is top notch, the food is some of the best in town, the pool is so relaxing and the people are fun.”

“My husband was the one who wanted to join initially.  I wasn’t very excited about the idea at first, but decided to give it a try.  Now, I think that I enjoy it even more than he does (and that’s saying a lot).  My kids love coming to the pool and being part of the social events.  I have found a group of women who love to golf (not seriously) and we have a great time together.”

“The club is a place to relax and unwind with good friends.”

“The thing I love about being a member of Northland most is it feels like my cabin away from home.  The location is close, the outdoor pool with friends, music and food adds a convenience factor to getting away without all the packing and planning.  Showing up with sunscreen and swimsuits and knowing my children have friends to play at the pool and I have friends to interact with all afternoon.  The planned events provide a social outlet for me, my husband, my family and my children all year long.”

“The family programming is great!”

“As a novice golfer, there are lots of opportunities to learn and enjoy the game and course in a low-pressure environment.

“My whole family enjoys golfing and the social aspect the club offers.”
