Have a Swinging Time at One of These "Fore" Twin Cities Golf Courses

May 16, 2016

Place-to-Golf-Twin-Cities.jpgLegend has it that Mark Twain referred to golf as "a good walk spoiled." Just try telling that to the nearly 25 million Americans who can't get enough of the game. Whether you're a golf addict or a novice, there are some great courses near Springs at Apple Valley and Springs at Egan Drive. Does your taste run more toward the miniature variety? We've got you covered there, too.

1. Valleywood Golf Course
4851 McAndrews Rd
Apple Valley
4.2 miles from Springs at Apple Valley

In 2015, the Minnesota Golf Association recognized VGC as its Member Club of the Year. The course is 190 acres of gently rolling grounds studded with ponds and tree stands. Unwind after the game in the clubhouse restaurant with a full bar and outdoor patio.

2. Legends Club
8670 Credit River Blvd
Prior Lake
11.7 miles from Springs at Apple Valley

This stunning club is a past winner of National Golf Course of the Year as named by the National Golf Course Owners Association. The scenic grounds, featuring a 30-acre lake, dense woods and flowing creeks, turn a round of golf into a vacation. Download the free mobile app to book tee times with your smart phone.

3. Cleary Lake Golf Course
18106 Texas Ave
Prior Lake
5.9 miles from Springs at Egan Drive

CLGC is located within Cleary Lake Regional Park, a popular location for year-round activities including camping, swimming and cross-country skiing. Visitors can enjoy a nine-hole golf course and driving range. If you want a little variety, try a game of FootGolf, where the object is to kick a soccer ball into a hole following the same rules as the traditional game.

4. The Links at Dred Scott Miniature Golf
10820 Bloomington Ferry Rd
6.5 miles from Springs at Egan Drive

Dred Scott Playfields are the site of the Links, which has won votes as the best mini golf facility in Minnesota. Unlike most mini golf courses, the holes don't have windmills, clowns and other classic obstacles. The Links is designed as a small-scale golf course with more natural grounds. Save with packages of 15 or 25 rounds that have no expiration date and can be used by anyone.

In addition to golf and other local activities, our Springs Twin Cities communities include on-site amenities such as resort-style swimming pools, 24-hour fitness centers and leash-free dog parks. Stop by and learn more from one of the friendly members of our leasing teams.
