Where2Golf says: 

The Classic course at Madden's Resort on Gull Lake 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. Located 2 miles from the main resort centre are three more Madden's courses: the 18-hole Pine Beach East and Pine Beach West courses and 9-hole social course.
