|Orono Golf Course -- Great little 9 hole neighborhood course|
|Review by: Brian D.||This 9-hole course offers a variety of shot making for the beginner to intermediate golfer. There is no sand, some water and a lot of elevation changes. If you are not in shape and it is a hot day, a cart is definitely needed. The greens are small, which toughens the course up immensely as you can have a great drive, but if your approach is off, you can miss the green. I have played it 50 + times and still enjoy going back, especially if I have played a tougher course and need to have my psyche adjusted with a more positive outcome. Overall, if you are short on time and want to play a quick 9 and have fun, this is the course.|

|Minneopa Golf Club -- GREAT VALUE|
|Review by: Mark Allen Spangler||Minneopa Golf Course has been providing golf excitement for experts and amateur alike since 1930. Although the first three holes are pretty basic, things get a bit more interesting from there on.
The 3rd hole is fun as the tree lined fairway demands a straight tee shot.
Recent work has expanded the 6th hole although the tee is a bit awkward as it sits directly in front of the tee box for the 4th hole.
The 7th hole is quite dramatic with a huge valley that asks for a straight shot onto the green. The ladies tee on this hole is also fun as it is buried in a hidden grove of sumac.
The 9th hole brings you back to the club house as a daunting, giant elm tree stares back at you from the middle of the fairway.
Greens are small and well maintained. The tree-shaded 8th hole green is the best on the course.
A tremendous value for golfers of any experience level, Minneopa is a rare treasure for a "working mans" golf course.
Best of all is the ancient clubhouse and family atmosphere of the owners. You won't find friendler people anywhere. Enjoy a beer and pet the big black lab dog that strolls in from time to time. Tracy and Kyle call it their home. You will too after you've played Minneopa.
