(BIWABIK, Minn.) – Giants Ridge – Minnesota’s leading golf resort, set in the rugged beauty of the Mesabi Iron Range, announces fall golf packages perfect to cap the 2019 golf season in style.
A convenient three-hour drive 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. 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.
The “Two Nights – Two Rounds” package starts at $249 per person / per night and includes a two-night stay in a two-bedroom condo at The Lodge at Giants Ridge, discounts at the Sleeping Giant Grill and Bar, a round of golf per person / per day on either The Quarry or The Legend, golf cart, range balls and a yardage book. The “Play & Stay at GreenGate Guest Houses” package includes a two-night stay at the GreenGate Guest Houses, a round of golf on either course, golf cart, range balls and a yardage book, and starts at $232 per person / per night. The “Stay & Play at The Villas” package includes one round of golf with cart on either of the resort’s two courses, range balls, a yardage book and accommodations at the Villas at Giants Ridge for 10% off the regular price.
More information about these festive fall golf packages at Giants Ridge can be found on the resort’s special offers page.
“The fall season is an ideal time to visit Giants Ridge with cooler weather, exceptional course conditions and vivid fall colors splashed throughout the golf course,” says John Kendall, director of golf. “We offer everything needed for a fun getaway while playing two of Minnesota’s best courses.”
Earlier this year, Giants Ridge received the “Editor’s Choice Award” from Golf Digest in the “Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest” category. The publication also ranked The Quarry No. 31 in its biennial rankings of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses. In addition to the Golf Digest honors, Giants Ridge and its courses have received accolades from Golfweek, My Golf Spy, WorldGolf.com and Golf Advisor.
