Where to Golf Next reader submission

I play at Oak Glen Golf Course in Stillwater, Minn., because it is the finest course in the area that “you can get on.” It is a daily fee course that behaves like a country club. I drive my car 25 miles and past five other golf courses on the way, just for the experience of playing Oak Glen.

Oak Glen is a much greater challenge than the 6,574 yards that its scorecard claims. This is a course that requires a knowledge of the distance. The many obstacles make for even competition between low and high handicappers. Water must be avoided on 11 holes, and out-of-bounds can be encountered on 15 holes. The greens and fairways are pristine, well kept and manicured despite Minnesota’s unpredictable weather patterns. Even with the challenges, foursomes finish their rounds in four hours or less — even on weekends.

The staff at Oak Glen make you feel like you belong, and are the most welcoming and accommodating folks. The director of golf has been there nearly since the course opened in 1982.

Whether you walk, ride or surf — Oak Glen has GolfBoards — you will have a great challenge and a great time.
