About Giants Ridge Golf - The Quarry

Giants Ridge Golf & Ski Resort, is a Resort, 36 hole golf facility located in Biwabik, Minnesota. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses. They are, The Quarry at Giant Ridge and The Legend at Giants Ridge.

The Quarry golf course first opened for play in 2003. The par-72 course was designed by Jeffrey D. Brauer.

The Quarry course at the Giants Ridge plays to a maximum of 7,201 yards for a course rating of 75.6 and a slope rating of 146. A recent (2008) golf review by Ron Whitten of Golf Digest cited The Quarry as "The Best Golf Course of the 21st Century."

Course architect Jeff Brauer said of The Quarry, "It's still too early too judge for sure, but the Quarry at Giants Ridge may eventually be judged as my finest and unique course. This a tribute to the unique site � a mixture of virgin land, iron ore open pit mine and sand quarry, that gives course it's name, and it's distinct character. You might say it's the "most unnatural" course I have ever designed, because most of the land has been scarred into land of great charm and character by these previous industrial operations. I am as excited by this course as any other I have designed, and most who tour the construction site seem to agree."

The Quarry at Giants Ridge is a true golf experience. It would be hard to find a better track in the Midwest. 18 incredible golf holes winding through the north woods, The Quarry is in incredible condition and will make you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The other Giants Ridge course, The Legend is no slouch either. The two par 3's on the back 9 are some of the best i've ever played.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area

The Quarry was a great experience. This course has several interesting shots/holes, with risk/reward all over. The conditions were great, and I really like the layout. I would definitely go out of my way to play this again if we make it back up that way. This could really be a great spot for a golf trip with the guys.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
