Is Hazeltine a good Championship Course?
Hazeltine is a good championship course, but I wouldn’t describe it as spectacular. Ranking it in the top 5 in Minnesota seems a little off for me, but I tend to prefer interesting/quirky courses to challenging courses. That is not to say there aren’t some interesting holes.

Where is the Ryder Cup 2016?
Fall in Minnesota is gorgeous and this course delivers with scenic views that were highlighted by trees changing colors.

Is Hazeltine a brawny course?
Many, many years later and after a successful 2016 Ryder Cup campaign by the United States, Hazeltine has attained a place in the mind of the recreational golfer that stands aside clubs like Oakmont, Pebble Beach and Pinehurst #2. Rightfully so. This golf course in Chaska, MN, is just… brawny. It’s muscular but not in a brutish way. Nor is it sinewy. It is simply mighty, rugged and strong.

I wasn’t controlling my ball very well, so I got to experience a lot of the rough and too many of the bunkers. While both were well maintained, it’s easily a half stroke penalty if you miss the fairway.

Is the golf course challenging?
The golf course itself is one of the most challenging I’ve played. The first hole is a bit of a breather but after that it gets really challenging. The greens are firm and very fast, which makes both putting and chipping a challenge. That said, the greens were some of the best I’ve ever putted. If you got your ball started online, it always found the bottom of the cup.
Why is Hazeltine lengthened?
Hazeltine has been lengthened considerably to deal with the onslaught of talent from the world’s best players but the richness in architectural detail is lacking more often than not.
What are the criticisms of the Rtj golf course?
My main criticism of the course is that the land is mostly featureless, and many of the holes are just not that memorable. The front side is rather bland, and features a lot of unnecessary water that is typical of the RTJ family tree of architecture . There is also an overabundance of doglegs, and it seems like every par 4 moves significantly in one direction or another.
What is number 7 in golf?
Number 7 is a par 5 with a pond fronting the green. Number 8, is a beautiful par 3 with water on both the front and right side of the green. The 10th and 16th greens jut out into Lake Hazeltine. Number 10 is a severe dogleg left that tumbles down the hill to a green that sits on the lake.

What is a golfer’s dream?
A Golfer’s Dream, by Larry Berle, tells the story of how a regular guy conquered America’s Top 100 Golf Courses (following Golf Digest’s 2001/2002 list). Larry has exclusively rated for us every course in the hundred, using our golf ball rating system. However, Larry did not rate the 100 courses against every golf course he has played, but instead he rated them in relation to each other within the hundred. Consequently, in some cases, his rating may seem rather low. A Golfer’s Dream is available in Kindle format and also on Kindle Unlimited via Amazon… click the link for more.
