Detailed description of Soldiers Memorial Field Golf Course
Soldiers Memorial Field Golf Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Rochester, Minnesota. Soldiers Field is a classic course located in the middle of downtown Rochester. Built in 1927 along the Zumbro River, this beautiful course features tree lined fairways, well bunkered greens, and challenging shots over the river. The river borders half of the holes. Measuring 5706 yards, the golf course has proven time and time again that strategy and ball placement, and not just length, are requirements to scoring well on this challenging layout. The greens are large, and the fairways are wide open, but some have very large trees straddling the fairways making it possible to hit more trees than greens and fairways. The signature hole is #5, a 165-yard, par 3, featuring both an elevated tee box and green, and requiring an approach shot over water to the green.
