Well, you have some options.
The Minnesota Golf Course Superintendents’ Association has put the form for its annual turfgrass week online.
Here’s the story: For $440, you can get a foursome of golfers (that’s $110 per person for the math-challenged) onto a private club at certain assigned times. Most of the tee times are during the first week in June, though some go later. Edina Country Club, for example, has times available in early September as it is still in the midst of rennovating its course. A few other courses offer gift certificates for play.
There are some big names here including Minikahda, Northland, Golden Valley, Minneapolis, Windsong Farm and Oak Ridge. Others include: Brackett’s Crossing, Burl Oaks, Indian Hills, Minnesota Valley, Olympic Hills, Midland Hills, Stillwater, Town & Country, Medina, Somerby, St. Cloud, Dellwood Hills and TPC Twin Cities.
So if there’s a club on there you’ve always wanted to play, but you don’t know a member or have an in, here is an option for you.
