Grand View Lodge is pleased to announce it has been selected as one of the top 125 Golf Resorts in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2011 Reader’s Poll. Ranked #6 among the top 10 Northern U.S. Golf Resorts, readers voted based on criteria that included overall lodging, dining, service and of course, golf amenities.
The Top 125 Golf Resorts provides travelers with a best of guide to the top destinations across the country, as selected by readers of Condé Nast Traveler. Stretching from Scottsdale to St. Andrews, this list includes the world’s best places to stay and play for both the avid and casual golfer.
“We are delighted and honored to be the only Minnesota golf resort recognized by Condé Nast Traveler, and most importantly, our guests,” said Mark Ronnei, general manager of Grand View Lodge. “With three distinct Championship courses to choose from, we have always strived to provide golfers with a unique and breathtaking experience, this tribute further affirms that we have succeeded.”
In addition to this most recent accolade, Grand View Lodge has been named as one of the best resort golf in the United States by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golfweek. The resort’s Championship courses, The Pines, The Preserve and Deacon’s Lodge, have been rated as the Top 100 in the United States.
While all three offer top-rated golf, each tenders a different experience. The Pines, a 27-hole par 72 course, is located among Minnesota’s rich landscape of forest and includes flexibility for all skill levels as well as its own separate practice facility. The Preserve, the property’s 18-hole course, offers some of the most scenic golf course views in Minnesota, while Deacon’s Lodge demonstrates the Lodge’s history and prestige. Furthermore, for the casual or beginning golfer, The Garden, Grand View Lodge’s 9-hole, par 35 course is a more relaxing and less challenging golf resort experience.
