Gross National Golf Course is closed for the 2013 season, but head over for indoor winter golf!
About Gross National Golf Club
Gross National Golf Club opened in 1925. It has gently rolling hills with elevated tees and greens. We rent riding carts, although many golfers enjoy walking the course. There are three sets of tee-markers on each hole to challenge all skill levels. It is a mature course with lots of old trees.
It hosted the 1964 USGA National Publinks Championship. The course’s location makes it readily accessible from Minneapolis or St. Paul with Interstate 35W marking the southern boundary.
A ''great layout'' is how most customers describe the course; another reason Gross has been considered ''The People’s Choice'' for years.
NEW Indoor Winter Golf
With our two Technique Prestige Golf Simulators, you can keep your swing in shape and enjoy some friendly competition all winter long at Gross National Golf Club. Play on more than 55 of the world's greatest golf courses, including Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, and others!
Golfers can also use the simulators as a driving range and receive instant feedback on each shot (ball speed, club head speed, swing path, club face angle at impact).
