Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club
worth the 40 minute drive
Great lay-out in good condition despite the recent downpours. Bunkers were muddy and some flooded but fortunately I avoided them. Greens were nice but marked up from animals and rude golfers not repairing pitch marks. But rolled nicely and little problem smoothing putting lines. Great scenery with the 18th tee the best spot on the course. Definitely will go back again as this is a top notch facility.

One of My Favorites
The layout and condition of this course are always top notch. I play this course 3-5 times per year and have had nothing but great experiences until a small hiccup yesterday. Usually you are greeted in the parking lot and they load up your cart for you but this didn't happen, no big deal until the starter threw us attitude for seemingly no reason. Chalk it up to one bad experience and the rest of the round was fantastic.

Excellent Course for a friendly round of golf
Course was in excellent condition. The greens had ball divots and that was to be expected as this course gets heavy public and tournament use. But seeing I was one of the early morning rounds, the grounds crew should be tending to these and rolling the greens. But overall the layout, scenery, and challenging layout made this course a lot of fun.

Course was in overall good conditions except for the greens. A tournament had played in the morning and the greens showed it. So many ball marks and spike marks hard to really think it was from one day. You could see some pin placement moves that seemed to only be a few feet making some areas of the green just beat down. Everything else with the exception of one bunker was great as always.

Worth the drive
I had played Raspberry Falls in 2004 and figured it was time to return and I was not disappointed. The course was wet from heavy rains the day before but had dried well enough where you could still take carts into most fairways. The traps were in rough shape as mentioned in previous reviews but overall the course was well worth the money I paid on golf now.

Rainy day golf
We had a good day of play, but wet, and enjoyed the course. Lovely open course running through the community at Raspberry Falls. The women's tees make it possible to reach the par fours and a few par fives in regulation.

Nice course but a couple of issues
Overall this course was in good shape and a very nice layout. Lack of GPS and a couple of holes that are hard to know how to play for first timers was an issue. Another annoyance was the inability to drive a cart to the driving range, or to the first tee (or anywhere) until the starter shows up and provides a key to the cart. I was left sitting in the cart in the parking lot until after my designated tee time when finally someone showed up and provided the key. This might have been less annoying if someone had explained that procedure in advance, but no-one did. Pace of play was a full 5 hours with an 8:30 tee time which I thought was slow. In spite of these issues I enjoyed the round and will likely go back, but staff could have mitigated any problems with an explanation for first timers.
