A Premier Golf Course in Minnesota
In Minnesota golf, Rush Creek Golf Club is well-known for its exceptional service and challenging holes. Rush Creek has hosted 3-LPGA events and in 2004 hosted the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. Widely considered one of the best golf courses in Minnesota and in the Midwest, we visited with Jay Meyerhoff, the Head PGA Professional, who shared with us his thoughts on why Rush Creek is worth visiting.
What makes Rush Creek unique?
When you play at Rush Creek, what you see is what you get. There are no surprises from the tee box to the green; everything you need to know about the hole is out in front of you. We also take pride in how excellent our staff is, we want you to feel like a member for a day and that you are always extraordinarily welcomed at Rush Creek.
What is the best complement you can receive from a guest?
That our staff went above and beyond to welcome each guest that comes to Rush Creek. We want every person that visits us to note how wonderful our staff made them feel.
What time of the year is the best time to play Rush Creek?
The best time of year to play at Rush Creek is late August, early September, when the heavy rains have passed and the leaves start changing colors. However, every day is the best time of the year to play at Rush Creek!
How would you describe your facility to someone new to Minnesota golf?
That our staff is unparalleled to any golf facility in the state. We make sure that every time you visit Rush Creek that you feel as if you are a member for the day. Rush Creek’s staff consistently exceeds guests expectations in making them feel welcomed.
What is your favorite hole at Rush Creek?
My favorite is Hole #12. It’s a par 3 with water that starts on the front side and wraps around the backside. The tee is elevated slightly, allowing you to see the marshland behind the hole.
Do you have any suggestions for families that want to play Rush Creek?
On Sunday nights we have a deal where one kid can play free for one paid adult. We also have a Par-3 that is great for families to bond over a round of golf![youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRVeHFPwnus&list=PL6EA3D3F1834CE040&index=15&w=427&h=240]
