Assuming a title like the Championship Course at a venue named “Minnesota National” is sure to put a little pressure on a golf course architect. Joel Goldstrand immediately sets the tone when teeing off down from the clubhouse, to let players know the course is prepared to live up to its name.

A par five, the first shot will negotiate a lake right of the fairway and a pair of bunkers pinching it in. The second shot will need to go over or around a tree parked in the centre of the fairway, and the final approach will deal with yet another pond (this time to the left of the green). And you’re off!

The top handicap hole, another par five, will up the intrigue with a take on the infamous “Channel” hole from the Lido Golf Club, allowing players to carry a lengthy pond to land in position for a better look at the green. Those who take the “easy” way out will not necessarily get the easier draw; again, you’ll be looking to go over (or around) a fairway tree. You’re beginning to understand the championship qualities of the “Championship” course at Minnesota National.
