Geneva Golf Club in Alexandria, MN is one of the great golf gems in the state. To that end, the Alexandria Lakes area is one of the most beautiful parts of Minnesota and often overshadowed by the Brainerd Lakes area. Nevertheless, Gary Thompson and his family run the Joel Goldstrand designed, Geneva Golf Club and if you’ve not played it, do yourself a favor and give it a spin.
Geneva is a 27-hole facility that is walkable, yet enjoyable with a cart as well. From the tips, the course can play over 7,000 yards and provides a fabulous test of golf.

Here’s what owner, Gary Thompson has to say about the hole.
