Where2Golf says: 

The Giants Ridge Golf & Ski Resort is home to two top-quality 18-hole championship golf courses: the Legend course, located at the main resort centre, and three miles away the generally higher-ranked Quarry course.

The Legend course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Minnesota. This tree-lined parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.
