This gem of a course is located just south of Minneapolis/St Paul in the heart of historic Northfield, MN. Northfield GC ‘s location is amazingly accessible from not only the south metro but also the Twin Cities at a bit more than half an hour from either Minneapolis or St Paul via I-35 or Hwy 52 connecting in on Cty 19 from either highway.
The history of Northfield Golf Club stretches back almost 90 years. The course opened in 1926 as a 9-hole layout on the edge of town along the Cannon River with a “golf shack” for a clubhouse. The clubhouse was upgraded to a log cabin structure which added to NGC’s colorful history. Additional acreage, purchased in 1975, allowed expansion to 18 holes. During 1991 the clubhouse dramatically burned to the ground. A magnificent multi-purpose clubhouse replaced it after a year’s construction. Improvements continued including new holes, bunker & sand renovations and addition of a short game practice facility with more on the horizon.
Today this scenic championship course measures out at 6728 yards with Rating at 73.3 and Slope of 143. Visiting golfers, including many golf professionals, are not shy in touting the quality and speed of the Northfield greens!
