GreenGate Guest Houses showcases a unique lodging experience, no matter the season, with spring packages starting at $232 per person / per night and valid through June 6. The package includes a round of golf on either The Quarry or The Legend, golf cart, range balls and a yardage book. A minimum two-night stay is required, and the offer is based on property occupancy, weekday/weekend rates and availability.

“We are thrilled to open the 2019 golf season, and welcome resort guests to enjoy our two exceptional golf courses and splendid accommodations,” says John Kendall, Director of Golf. “Our array of packages allows guests to discover firsthand why Giants Ridge consistently ranks as the premier golf destination in the upper Midwest.”

A convenient three hour straight-shot along I-35 from the Minneapolis – St. Paul metro area, Giants Ridge boasts two of the highest ranked layouts in state, The Quarry and The Legend. Although both tracts were designed by renowned course architect Jeffrey Brauer, each course features its own unique layout and character.

The aptly-named Quarry, built on the site of a former sand quarry and iron ore mine, has consistently earned a spot on Golf Digest’s bi-annual list of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” since 2005. Additionally, The Quarry was rated the “Best Course You Can Play” in Minnesota by Golfweek for the fifth consecutive year.

As its name implies, The Legend offers flat-out legendary golf. Carved out of the Superior National Forest, the player-friendly resort course plays through towering pines and alongside glittering Sabin Lake.

Offering unbeatable value and 36 thrilling holes, Giants Ridge has long been considered one of Minnesota’s best golf destinations. Giants Ridge recently received the “Editors’ Choice Award” from Golf Digest in the “Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest” category. In addition to Golfweek and Golf Digest honors, Giants Ridge and its courses have received accolades from Golf Magazine, My Golf Spy, WorldGolf.com and Golf Advisor.
