It’s 18 holes of beautiful rolling hills and deep valleys. It’s also 18 holes of championship, challenging golf, no matter the skill set. No wonder Grand National Golf Course is consistently ranked one of the best courses in the state.
Location is another perk that sets this course apart. Smack dab in the middle of Minnesota’s "up north" cabin country, the course is 70 miles north of the Twin Cities.
Mini-vacationers will find a driving range, two practice holes, a club house and pro shop, and golf carts decked out with GPS, as well as a next-door neighbor that offers all the gaming you could want: Grand Casino Hinckley.
Comfortable hotels nearby include the Grand Casino Hinckley Hotel and Chalets, Grand Hinckley Inn, which reopens on June 1, and Grand Casino RV Park.
Spring is Sweeter with a Discount on Golf
On Mondays through Fridays in May, the course welcomes golfers with open — and socially distant — arms.
