Giants Ridge - Top Ranked Minnesota Golf

This time of the year I’m arranging what golf destinations might make the list of possibilities for golf travel for me for 2018. Northern Michigan, Austin, Denver and Iceland have made the short list. Surprisingly Giants Ridge located in Biwabik, MN has popped up on the list for me. This golf “giant” features two distinct, top-ranked courses: the Quarry and the Legend.    
Once home to a sand quarry and iron ore mine, the topography and sheer uniqueness of the Quarry at Giants Ridge sets this course apart from any other public course in the Midwest. Dramatically raised tees, hazards forged from reclaimed and repurposed mine land routinely challenge golfers to dig deeper, seek farther and risk more.
The Legend at Giants Ridge offers flat-out legendary golf. The Legend reflects a true "northwoods" course in every sense of its existence. Towering pines, giant fairways, and majestic views of Wynne and Sabin Lakes have forever changed the landscape of golf in Minnesota.
  Watch this video and see why I’m contemplating a trip to Minnesota and Giants Ridge.
