Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge, the first Minnesota golf resort, is the golf lover’s paradise. With our 9- and 18-hole northern Minnesota golf courses, resident PGA golf professionals, and fantastic Stay-and-Play packages, it’s no wonder we’ve been a golf destination since 1921!

The Courses

The Lakes, our 18-hole Championship golf course, was designed by the brilliant architect Joel Goldstrand. The challenging course was expertly carved out of the rugged terrain, engulfing two natural lakes and featuring additional water features on a majority of the holes.

Alec’s Nine is the perfect course for families and those who want to get a quick round in. This beautiful course is less challenging than The Lakes, but is a fantastic time none-the-less.

Meet the Professionals

Our courses stand out from all other golf courses in Minnesota in their beauty, as well as their fantastic team. Dave Sadlowsky, our PGA Head Golf Professional and Bill Gottsch, our Assistant Professional, would love to meet you. If you have any questions for them you can contact Dave directly at 218.678.4646 or via email.
