On June 18th Giants Ridge was impacted by a large rain event.  This has had several impacts to the recreation area as our crews work to recover from the storm.


The Quarry Golf Course remains open and in great condition and is operating as normal.

The Legend Golf Course has temporarily suspended operation and will reopen tomorrow, Friday, with play on the front 9 holes.  The course itself remains in excellent condition thanks to the hard work of the golf crews, however a few sections of golf car paths have been impacted by rising waters on Wynne Creek and remain impassable.

For specific golf information contact the pro shop at 218-865-8030.
