The Quarry Golf Course at Giants Ridge Golf Resort
Minnesota's #1 Public Golf Course
The Legend & Quarry golf courses are open for play!
Play the best Minnesota public golf course! Sculpted in equal parts FROM the north woods and reclaimed minelands, The Quarry at Giants Ridge is a MN golf course with a style all its own. Dramatically raised tees and deep hazards forged FROM mine lands, wetlands, forests and a former sand quarry challenge players to dig deeper, see farther and risk more.
In brief, this 18-hole championship golf course has redefined golf in the Midwest.
A par 72 and walkable 7,000 yards FROM the back tees, 'The Quarry' honors the region's industrial past in a unique and culturally significant way. Each hole is named for area mines, past and current--from hole four, which commemorates the giant Mahoning mines that produced more than 130 million tons of iron, to hole 18, named for the Embarrass mine, which today, is a 550-foot deep mine-pit lake, the deepest on the Mesabi Iron Range.
Golf Digest critic Ron Whitten cited The Quarry as "The Best Golf of the 21st Century," and went on to say, "....hands down the finest (golf) course in Minnesota. He also added, "...this Quarry will swallow up all Quarries before it, FROM Florida to California. It's a combination of Pebble Beach, Pine Valley, Merion and Tabacco Road, with a bit of architectural Tabasco sauce sprinkled in for the occasional jolt."
