Golfers visiting Madden's on Gull Lake are in the middle of a paradise of fairways. We have been the leader in Minnesota golf resorts since 1926 when we opened the first 18 hole resort course in the state, 'Pine Beach East'. We now offer 63 holes of exceptional golf designed to appeal to all levels of ability. The Classic was rated by Golf Digest Magazine as one of the "Best New Upscale Public Courses in North America for 1997". The Classic's five sets of tees give the golfer the option of playing the course from 4883 yards all the way back to 7109 yards from the Tour tees. Having the option to play from a variety of yardages makes the golf course not only very playable but a great test of your golf skills. Over 50 sand traps with "Ohio's Best" white sand and water hazards on 15 of 18 holes make negotiating The Classic both challenging and breathtakingly beautiful. The Classic offers caddie services.
Check website for rates. Guests of Madden's receive discounted greens fees at The Classic.

My visit was on the 3 day Classic stay & play package. The course is definitely a must see. However, make sure to bring plenty of inventory in case your swing or yardage are a bit off.
