Get in one last round before the ground freezes over, the snow falls, and you start wondering why you live in Minnesota again… Oh right, because fall in Minnesota makes up for it all.
With near-perfect weather and stunning fall colors, Jack’s 18 Golf Course is one of the most scenic courses in northern Minnesota. A Northwoods classic par 72, Jack’s 18 is enjoyable for all skill levels.
