Default Twin Cities

For the Twin Cities area, I would bring a newbie to a 3 star course, with a variety of holes and good amenities, and then bring them to a 4-5 star course. I wouldn't want to bring them to Blue Ribbon Pines, and have them look at hole # 4. They may not want to play ever again.

3 Star (IMHO)
Riverside - St. Cloud
Acorn - Roseville
Central Park - Brooklyn Park

4-5 Star (IMHO)
Hidden Lake - St. Augusta (St. Cloud area)
Blue Ribbon Pines (East Bethel)
Mont Du Lac (Superior, WI)
Kaposia (St. Paul)

No disrespect to the south metro, but I haven't played too many courses down there, IE Bryant Lake, Hyland, etc.
