Giants Ridge Offers Value-Packed Stay-and-Play Offer
By Brian Weis
Giants Ridge - Minnesota's leading golf resort set in the rugged beauty of the Mesabi Iron Range - is celebrating the arrival of golf season with a stay-and-play offer ideal for golf getaways.
Available from approximately mid-April (subject to the courses opening) through May 24, it includes one round of golf with cart on either of Giants Ridge's two championship courses, range balls and accommodations at The Lodge at Giants Ridge. Weeknight rates begin at $99 (double occupancy) and $139 (single).
Weekend rates start at $139 (double occupancy) and $179 (single). Package rates are per person, per night. For reservations or to check on the opening date for the courses, call 877.442.6877. As a bonus, each golfer receives one $10 food and beverage voucher per night redeemable at Sleeping Giant Restaurant and Bar.
Located just over three hours from the Minneapolis - St. Paul metro area, Giants Ridge boasts two of the highest ranked layouts in state, The Quarry and The Legend. The Quarry is rated the "Best Course You Can Play" in Minnesota by Golfweek and GOLF Magazine. Now a "must-play" course, it was once home to a sand quarry and iron ore mine. Dramatically raised tees and hazards forged from reclaimed and repurposed mine land create unique challenges.
As its name implies, The Legend offers flat-out legendary golf. The original Giants Ridge course, designed by Jeffrey Brauer, The Legend is a true "northwoods" course featuring towering pines, giant fairways and majestic views of Wynne and Sabin Lakes. Its smooth edges and traditional design elements offer a stunning contrast to the starkly modern sibling, Quarry.
"Giants Ridge is home to two of the top-ranked layouts in the North Star State," says John Kendall, Director of Golf. "Impeccable course conditions and a variety of lodging options to suit any budget and group size make Giants Ridge an excellent venue for a fun and memorable golf getaway."
Offering unbeatable value and 36 thrilling holes, Giants Ridge has long been considered one of Minnesota's best golf destinations. In addition to receiving a Golf Digest Editor's Choice Award for "Best Golf Resorts in the Midwest," Giants Ridge and its courses have received accolades from Golfweek, Golf Magazine, My Golf Spy, WorldGolf.com and Golf Advisor.

It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
