About the Course

From Minnehaha Country Club website (www.minnehahacc.com)

“For more than a century, Minnehaha Country Club has been evolving from an afternoon golf outing with friends on a primitive course to one of the region’s premier golf courses. The rolling terrain is surrounded by groves of beautiful trees. Meticulously groomed undulating greens blend into flowing lush fairways to create a jewel enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels. Golf’s pivotal role at Minnehaha Country Club is evident not only with this championship course, but the staff, services, and commitment surrounding the game.”
