Chaska Town Course Should not be Overlooked
It’s possible you may have heard of Chaska Town Course (CTC) but have not played it. The renowned Chaska municipal occasionally gets overlooked due to sitting in the shadow of another great course–Hazeltine National Golf Club—where the national spotlight shines every few years. But CTC has been called one of the best municipals in Minnesota and ranks with some of the best around the country. It should not be missed.
The proximity of the Town Course to Hazeltine (which is located about the length of three par 5s away) has also been a benefit. The CTC has assisted Hazeltine in some national events (the 2003 National Amputee Tournament and 2006 U.S. Amateur) and shared the spotlight (PGA pro Billy Horshel set a club record—12-under, 60–at the Amateur), but the Town Course is worthy of plenty of attention in its own right.
Since Arthur Hills designed Chaska Town Course in 1997, it has been collecting honors:
- Voted top 10 best Golf Courses in Minnesota–Golf Digest
- Once ranked 23rd (currently 36th) in the Top Municipal Golf Courses in the U.S—GolfWeek
- Rated Four and a Half Stars Best Places to Play–Golf Digest
- Named Course of the Year (2009)–Minnesota Golf Association
