Detailed description of Madden\'s On Gull Lake -The Classic

Madden's On Gull Lake -The Classic, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Brainerd, Minnesota. The Classic - is a championship level golf course that will test your golfing abilities. In the mid-1990s the owners of Madden's decided that although they already had 45 holes of exceptional golf, they needed a truly championship course. They asked their golf superintendent, Scott Hoffmann, who had worked on the redesign of greens, bunkers and tees on their existing courses, to take on the layout of the new course. They wanted to offer their guests the experience that a professional golfer would have every weekend on tour. They wanted a championship course, but one that was very fair and a good test of golf. Golfers loved the course, and so did the golf critics as honor after honor was showered on the course. In 1997, in its first season of play, The Classic was named to the list of Best New Upscale Public Courses to Play by Golf Digest Magazine. Golf Week has named The Classic the Top Public Course in Minnesota. They now stand 33rd on the list of Best Public Courses in America in Golf Digest. The Classic was also selected as Favorite Place to Golf by Minnesota Monthly. So what is it about The Classic that has drawn this praise? First of all, you're going to find the terrain rolls up and down in long, sweeping knolls. There is a 60-foot elevation change between the high points and low points. There is dramatic scenery: Red oaks are the predominant trees with maple understory, which makes for vibrant colors in the fall. And there are five sets of tees which makes it possible for golfers of all skill levels to play this wonderful course.

This is one of the best public golf courses in the entire state of Minnesota. I am a Minnesota based freelance golf writer and believe me this is a wonderful example of a Minnesota northwoods resort course. Best course in the famed Brainerd Lakes resort area of Minnesota.

Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level
