Derek Holland

Avid golfer who loves to combine his travel with his golf. Grew up in SE Michigan playing most of my golf at Barton Hills. After high school I fell out of love with the game but have taken it back up as I have learned to appreciate golf course architecture. Now based in Minneapolis MN where the season is way too short.

Troy Burne 18/06/2019

11th Wisconsin - Best in Area
Troy Burne is in my mind one of the top three publics in the MSP area. The front nine is a bit easier with the short par 4 4th and par 4 7th being the highlights for me....
