My wife and I golfed here together and found the course to be in excellent shape. The greens rolled true, and the course was very challenging, but not punishing. Highly recommend to anyone. The staff (especially our starter Charlie) was extremely friendly!

A few holes have been tweaked recently and I enjoyed the subtle changes. Course is always in great shape but this August seemed particularly well maintained. Great clubhouse and attentive service throughout the facility. 3 tracks of 9-holes means you can play multiple times without it feeling old.

We had a very nice three days golfing and enjoying the water. It was such a clean and well kept place. They had a lot of things to do for all ages.

have golfed the Pines on a few occasions. It isn't the best of the Nisswa area courses, but it is reliably good.
