The Wilderness at Fortune Bay

The Wilderness at Fortune Bay is part of Northern Minnesota’s premiere vacation destination at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. Atop high granite ridges just hours north of the Twin Cities, The Wilderness offers spectacular panoramic views from the shores of the magnificent Lake Vermilion. Wrapped around picturesque Minnesota woodlands, which include majestic white and red pines, thick evergreens and dramatic rock outcroppings, the challenging course is as visually stimulating as it is enjoyable to play, making it a true golfer’s dream.

Designed by renowned architect Jeffery D. Brauer, The Wilderness measures approximately 7,207 yards from the back tees and is a long hitter’s dream, while also catering to golfers of all skill levels by offering four additional sets of tees.

Fortune Bay Casino located adjacent to The Wilderness is a premier Minnesota destination offering two floors of gaming entertainment and resort amenities situated on Lake Vermilion.

Stay & Play golf and lodging packages are available all season. Resort rooms are beautifully appointed and range from Deluxe to Executive Suites. When you are worn out from a thrilling day of gaming, golfing, or fishing, you will not be disappointed when you kick back and relax.
