The Classic at Madden’s Resort frequently makes Golf Digest’s Top 100 public golf courses list, and is generally one of the most popular golf courses around Gull Lake, a popular vacation destination in northern Minnesota.

The state’s signature landscape comes into play across the route, featuring both deciduous and evergreen forest, as well as numerous interactions with water, whether playing a forced carry across marshland or along the shores of Bass Lake. The short par four No. 11 is among the most photographed holes, featuring an intimidating collection of bunkers around the green. Four large hazards guard the entryway, while five sit at the back, with their altitude increasing the farther back you miss. The best bet is to roll off the green into the first row for the easiest chip...or perhaps just land on the green! Still, we wouldn’t it against you to try to reach the green in one.

Considering the acclaim gathered by the course, one might be surprised to learn it was designed by current superintendent Scott Hoffman. The resort is surely glad that he’s continued his strong work at Classic rather than expand his design portfolio across the golf world.
