“A great getaway!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

We went to Thumper Pond as part of a stay and play package where we received unlimited golf and hotel for a very reasonable price. I'm glad we did this because the regular rates for the golf course are pretty high. The young man working in the pro shop, Zack, was very helpful and very polite. He showed great customer service skills for a 17-18 year old and was able to inform us on other attractions in the area that we visited later in the week. The course itself was in spectacular shape. Each hole was very scenic and presented a different challenge. I would highly recommend golfing here at least once, even with the slightly overpriced rates. The stay and play package is a great deal! We will definitely be back in the future.

“Golf, Retreat, Renew, Relax”
Reviewed 10 October 2009

Thumper Pond Golf Course is well groomed, inviting, and suitable for any level golfer. The young man behind the desk at the course was helpful, gracious, and enthusiastic. This has got to be one of the greatest golf bargins in Minnesota.

We stayed over night in the comfortable hotel with a relaxing whirlpool. The room was large and clean, and it included a little fridge, a microwave, and a pot for coffee in the am, but the restaurant is steps away, and all enclosed in the Thumper Pond complex.

The Red Cedar Restaurant had specials for people dining before 6:30, and we took advantage of the low price but high quality cuisine. Surprise: as a celebratory birthday treat, dessert was free - and fantastic, tantalizing "Raspberry/Chocolate Cheesecake" in a generous portion which was just right for two. ;-)

Probably the best part was the available help and friendly service. They gave it a down home feel in an exquisite atmosphere. What's not to like?
