Madden's on Gull Lake

Maddens-Classic

Madden’s on Gull Lake, Minnesota’s Classic Resort, offers a golf experience for every ability and every budget. There is truly something for everyone at Madden’s starting with Pine Beach East and continuing with The Classic at Madden’s. Madden’s rich tradition of golf began in 1926, building a reputation on “classic” service and pristine course conditions, so evident at each of Madden’s four golf courses.

Madden’s Pine Beach East Course, the first 18-hole resort course built in Minnesota, is a true test of your golf skills, as it meanders through a striking park-like setting. It possesses beautiful fairways with generous landing areas, making your approach shots critical. The famous 618-yard, par-6 sixth hole is one of a kind in the Midwest. This long-treasured track is a hidden gem in the area and boasts hosting the golf greats such as Patty Berg, Walter Hagen and Nancy Lopez.

Pine Beach West is a heavily wooded course and its rolling terrain makes it an enjoyable challenge for any level of player. What looks to be an easy-to-break par track will deceive even scratch players. Both Pine Beach East and West assure the best golf value in the Brainerd Lakes area.

The Classic at Madden’s opened in 1997 and complements the existing 45 holes of golf at Madden’s … and has received rave reviews ever since. The Classic at Madden’s is literally carved out of the rolling hills and oaks and pines surrounding Gull Lake, and it’s easy to understand why this challenging and breathtaking track has received numerous awards: A five-star rating for Best Places to Play (Golf Digest), #5 in Golfweek’s “Best” and Golf Digest’s Top 50.

While creating the course, Madden’s placed a premium on preserving the environment and natural habitats and very little earth was moved. “We took a superb piece of land and uncovered a great golf course,” says Brian Thuringer, president of Madden’s. The Classic at Madden’s five sets of tees, 50+ sand bunkers and water on 15 holes provide plenty of challenge, but its striking vistas will make a lasting impression and remind a visitor just how magnificent the game of golf can be.

Located on more than 1,000 acres spanning miles of Gull Lake shoreline, Madden’s offers three distinctive yet separate resort atmospheres, each featuring a unique blend of accommodations. Once you’ve arrived, our unlimited recreational offerings, fine and casual dining, two bars, nightly entertainment and a lakeside spa will affirm “there’s really no reason to leave.” Let us build a golf package suited to your needs—whether you want to golf from sunup to sunset, or golf in the morning, visit the spa or play on the lake in the afternoon, a package with or without meals, or perhaps include an area golf round—we’ll tailor it specifically to your liking. With 108 holes of golf within one mile, you’re truly in a golfer’s paradise.
