3 Championship Golf Courses that Exceed Your Expectations Inside & Out
Overlooking the St Croix River Valley in Prescott, Wisconsin lies Clifton Highlands Golf Club. Located 35 minutes east of St. Paul, it has been a favorite of avid golfers for over thirty-five years. Designed by Dr Gordon Emerson (and considered by him as one of his best), the Highlands offers a premium public-access facility at a very fair price.
Challenging to both low and high handicappers, it’s a course that can be played day in and day out without tiring of its beauty. Featuring a wide variety of hole layouts, wooded areas, water and sand coming into play, the Highlands has enjoyed a 4.5 Star rating from Golf Digest Magazine. Come see why it’s said to be “One of Wisconsin’s Best”.
With 27 holes on three distinct nines, Gopher Hills Golf Course is located in Cannon Falls, MN and just 30 minutes South of the Twin Cities between Hastings and Red Wing.
Designed by Dr. Gordon Emerson and first opened in 1995, the original nine (now holes 10-18) has the mark of a classic, Early American layout, featuring tree-lined fairways, sculpted bunkers, numerous elevation changes, and plenty of risk/reward opportunities.
An 18-hole expansion in 1999 by Garret Gill added a strong European flavor, with a front nine and executive nine; each using wind, native grass, and undulating greens as defense against par.
For over 100 years, golfers have enjoyed Red Wing Golf Club, a 18 hole championship course with private club-quality conditions & one of the best event centers in the Red Wing area.
Elevated tees overlooking tree lined and rolling fairways call for well positioned tee shots in order to approach undulating, fast and smooth greens. This unique target golf course rewards accuracy and positioning over power and strength.
The course provides an enjoyable and challenging golfing experience for all levels of play. The majestic oak trees, rich green pines, and rugged sandstone bluffs make for a truly scenic golfing adventure.
