On-site accommodations offer golfers special prices on golf getaways
(BIWABIK, Minn.) – Giants Ridge – Minnesota’s leading golf resort, set in the rugged beauty of the Mesabi Iron Range – reveals stay-and-play packages highlighting the resort’s exceptional golf courses and accommodations.
A convenient three-hour drive along Interstate 35 from the Minneapolis – St. Paul metro area, Giants Ridge boasts two of the highest-ranked layouts in state, The Quarry and The Legend. The aptly-named Quarry is built on the site of a former sand quarry and iron ore mine, and dramatically raised tees and hazards provide dramatic Iron Range vistas. Carved out of the Superior National Forest, The Legend is a true “northwoods” course featuring towering pines, giant fairways and majestic views of Wynne and Sabin Lakes.
Through October 15, the “Stay & Play at the Villas at Giants Ridge” package offers a round of golf per person / per day on either The Legend or The Quarry, golf cart, range balls, a yardage book and accommodations at The Villas at Giants Ridge for 10% off the regular price. Subject to availability, the package requires advanced reservations and tee times.
Starting at $281 per person / per night, the “Play & Stay at GreenGate Guest Houses” package includes a three-night stay at the GreenGate Guest Houses and two rounds of golf. A four-night, three rounds of golf package also is available, and starts at $397 per person / per night. Taxes are not included, and other restrictions may apply.
More information about these golf packages at Giants Ridge can be found on the resort’s special offers page.
“These packages are ideal for anyone coming to Giants Ridge – from golf getaways groups to families embracing the outdoors,” says John Kendall, director of golf. “With the golf season and pleasant weather upon us in the Midwest, we encourage early bookings to ensure you can play our highly rated courses.”
Both golf courses at Giants Ridge opened in May and follow social distancing guidelines set by the resort, which can be found on the Giants Ridge website.

Earlier this year, Giants Ridge received the “Editors’ Choice Award” from Golf Digest in the “Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest” category. In addition to the Golf Digest honor, Giants Ridge and its courses have received accolades from Golf Magazine, Golfweek, My Golf Spy, WorldGolf.com and Golf Advisor.
