“Loved The Quarry, The Legend was okay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2009

Played here two years ago and saw that there were no reviews for the course. The Quarry is simply the best course I've ever played- well, maybe not the best, but the best in Minnesota for sure. Better than Cragun's, Madden's, etc. Tons of elevation change, scenery is just spectacular. My only complaint there would be the greens. The greens are humongous, but they are all tiered and there isn't a flat spot on any of the greens. If you can two putt, you can score on this course. If it weren't so far away, I'd play there as much as I could. We played 36 that day and played The Legend afterwards. The Legend was a nice course- well-maintained with a few nice holes. #17 there is a long par 3 over a lake, very scenic, but you emerge victorious if you don't dump at least 1 of your groups tee shots into the lake. The footprint sand trap is nice and the course's signature- something different I guess. Either way, both courses were enjoyable, and I'd rank The Quarry #1 and The Legend #2, play em both if you can, but definitely hit up The Quarry, it is unforgettable.
