Rush Creek Golf Club
Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove has a gorgeous layout and a stunning 18th hole that provides the perfect ending to your game. The Championship course has hosted three LPGA Tour events and a U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. The Mac Nine par-3 course is a family friendly addition to the facility and is also great for short game practice and beginning golfers. Kids new to golf can also sign up for one of the junior programs offered. The course is hosting the Minnesota PGA Junior Golf teams in July for the Minnesota-Wisconsin 2021 Junior PGA Cup Matches!
Rush Creek's pro shop is now open so you can get all the golf accessories and apparel to up your game, such as Titleist golf bags, golf polos, shoes, gloves, and much more. When visiting Rush Creek, be sure to stop by the popular Highlander Restaurant where you can enjoy lunch or dinner in front of the stone fireplace or capture the breathtaking view of the course while watching the sunset from the terrace. The restaurant offers excellent fare including weekly pub specials created by the head chef, as well as a summer cocktail menu.
Note: The driving range is not open for practice at this time as it is currently under construction for a drainage project. The driving range is only open to golfers to warm up.
Book a tee time at Edinburgh USA in Brooklyn Park, a beautiful 18-hole Championship golf course that has hosted a number of tour events, as well as local amateur and professional championships. After a recent remodel, the number of sand traps was cut from 81 to 64 and the sand replaced with cool, green grass, making this already impressive course more appealing to golfers at all skill levels. Adult lessons, junior lessons, and junior leagues are back this year.
Edinburgh is perhaps best known for its famous 17th hole, which boasts an island fairway and a peninsula for a green. The course has received major acknowledgements, including “Best of State” category and “Top 75 Affordable Courses” by Golf Digest, and “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” by Golf magazine.
When you need to refuel after a round, sit back and relax at the on-site eatery The Brooklyn Restaurant & Bar. With a selection of local taps and a menu with weekly specials, dining at The Brooklyn is the perfect way to end your outing. Of course, diners are invited back any time to simply enjoy lunch or dinner on the patio, too!
