When it comes to playing and staying in the Twin Cities, Bloomington is the place to hang your hat (and clubs!). Here’s who we have in the Minnesota Golf Spotlight: Bloomington Convention and Visitors Bureau. What courses do they have you ask? Bloomington is home to, and surrounded by, award winning golf courses. Travel south and you’ll find The Legends Club and The Wilds in Prior Lake. You’re a stones throw from Braemar Golf Course and a comfortable drive to Prestwick, Stonebrooke and Ridges at Sand Creek. After your round, settle in to one of the many hotels in the area that make Bloomington one of the busiest travel destinations in the world. Heck, if you’re with your family and have some time to kill and cash to burn, head over to the Mall of America!
