Founded in 1898, the golf club at Northland – as its name suggests – lies way up north, near the Canadian border, and the wooded, gently rolling course sits on top of cliffs that offer fantastic views of Lake Superior from many of its fairways.
The first 9-hole course at Northland Country Club was expanded to a full 18-hole layout in 1912 then, when land on the cliffs above the course was acquired in 1921, Donald Ross was hired to route a new course which came into play in 1927.
Ross is associated with over 600 courses in America with less than a handful located in the North Star State so Northland keeps very select company with the famous Minnesotan courses at Interlachen, Minikahda and White Bear Yacht Club which were also touched by the same architect.
