A Private Blaine, Minnesota Golf Course
Innovative design and a reverence for nature are the hallmarks of truly great golf courses, and TPC Twin Cities’ outstanding championship golf course is no exception.
Honored multiple times by Golf Digest magazine among the top 20 golf courses in Minnesota, TPC Twin Cities’ par-72, 7,468-yard championship golf course was designed by legendary golfer and golf course architect Arnold Palmer to blend seamlessly with the natural rolling terrain on the site of a former sod farm 15 miles north of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Collaborating with PGA TOUR player consultant and Minnesota native Tom Lehman, Palmer sculpted a serene masterpiece featuring Bentgrass tees, fairways and greens, native prairie grasses, picturesque wetlands and 27 bodies of water, all framed by stately stands of mature oak, spruce and pine trees. After the competitive enhancement project in 2018, the course will pay as a par-72 for our members and guests, and will play as a par 71 for the PGA TOUR players.
Palmer’s signature beach bunker on the 7th hole, elevated greens and four expansive native area bunkers add to the unique character and strategic diversity of the course, which many TOUR players consider the best layout and conditioned course on PGA TOUR. While challenging enough for the best players in the world during the 3M Open, multiple tees on each hole enable golfers of all abilities to enjoy the subtle nuances and intricate design features that have earned Palmer acclaim as one of the world’s most respected golf course architects.
Complementing the golf course is an expansive 27,000 square-foot, double-ended and double-tiered practice facility. The practice area includes over 12,000 square feet of putting greens. There are also bunker and short-game practice areas for members and guests to hone their skills.
