Actually, we need 4 up in Brooklyn Center, 4 very near Minneapolis, and 4 very near St. Paul. That will get the core (where most of the population lives) served as well as the suburbs.

Then, we could consider running a future Worlds with the headquarters in Plymouth.

That DON'T all close during the winter! St.Paul probably has the best choices right now just too bad Oakwood isn't a liiiiittle closer though...Would love to see some good 18's up in the North Metro with Ham Lake now being a 9 there really are no large courses between BRP, Elm Creek & down to Bryant/Hyland or if you head up to Becker...

Chuck & Steve- Thanks for all you do for DG and especially here for us in MN. You guys are great assets to DG.

The problem is that there is no good land in Brooklyn park for anything larger than 9 holers, at least not quality holes anyway. Maple Grove and Dayton still has some good park land available. That is what is so disappointing with Elm Creek. I understand that it is a park reserve and much of the land needs to be preserved, but there is still plenty of space between the chateau and the large playground that is not really "reserve" land. There could be some championship level holes in there. As much as I struggle with holes 4 and 5, I would rather see more of these.

Westside Wednesday hits it up every third or fourth week as part of their rotation that includes HSSA, Bryant Lake, and Elm Creek. I am not sure if weekly leagues are there or not.

#4 should be an easy FH for the aceee! lol... #5 really is one of the harder par 3's though you have to hit that long flex line just perfect and agree the rest of Elm really lacks any spread outside a few holes. LOTS of land there like you said and the wide open hills get a little old. those 90*+ afternoons are rough there too with little cover its like a grassy(weed filled) desert.

I didn't even know Kenwood had one, damn I live down near there. Anywhere to get info on that?

It was run by Darnell last summer, but not many people went to it. Most of the competitive players in the state live more towards the north of the cities, so they'd go to Lakewood doubles instead. I'll be talking with Darnell tomorrow so I'll ask him if he's going to run it again this year.
