“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I have played both 18's at the Legacy at Cragun's and they are both outstanding. Both 18's are challening and have great views. These are some of the nicest courses i've played in Minnesota. Legacy property is newer than the resort property as well. Very nice.

“Booked a 3 night golf package”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Four of us booked a 4 day/3 night golf package which included our room (double occupancy), 3 breakfasts, 3 dinners and unlimited golf on Dutch's and Bobby's golf courses. We played on Sunday afternoon of the first day and 36 holes each of the following 3 days. Golf courses were in excellent condition, other than some bunkers had quite a few rocks in them. Do not expect to see that in a course of this caliber. The staff at both the resort and clubhouse are top notch and really cater to their guests. Our rooms were clean, had a deck and a nice view of the lake. Beds were comfortable. Parking for the room was very convenient.

The breakfasts were buffet style and were all you can eat. Food was very good. More than I can say for the dinners at the clubhouse. Those were adequate. Not horrible, just OK and over priced. Our package included ordering off the menu. I did not have the walleye, but the guys that had it said it was good. A couple had burgers the 2nd night and they all said they were not that good and would not order them again. I ordered the spaghetti the first night and it was too sweet for my taste, plus the meat balls were stringy and mushy. It was OK, but I would not order it again. The 2nd night I ordered the Black and Blue, which was a salad with blue cheese crumbles and Cajun tenderloin tips. That was much better than the spaghetti. Tips were good, other than the one I could not chew...too much gristle. The last night I opt'd for the cheese ravioli with Alfredo sauce. This was the best meal of the 3 for me. The staff at the clubhouse restaurant was excellent. Our dinners included a starter salad, out of the oven rolls and a small dessert. Both were good. When they bring the bill, all of the items are listed and the price to show the overall bill. The alcohol is presented on a separate tab. We tipped on the total bill including the FREE dinners. The total bill each night was about $130 before tip.

I rated the stay as a 4 because of the rocks in some bunkers, plus the dinners being overpriced for the quality. Our group has made this same trip for several years and always enjoy our stay. There is definitely room for Craguns to do some improvement in their food. The breakfasts were fine, but the dinners lacking. I recall on our last trip having the the steak and it was not good either, so did not order that on this trip.

On our 2nd day we had booked and 8:30AM tee time and when we got to the course, they informed us that our tee time was moved to 8:00AM because of a shotgun event starting at 12:15PM No one had notified any of us. It did not create a major problem for us, other than not having any time to hit a few balls on the range before the round. We finished in less than 4 hours, but were disappointed that none of us were informed about the tee time change. On the 3rd day, we had extra time between our rounds, so we decided to play a few holes on the reversible 9. None of us had ever played it and wanted to check it out. Greens were slow and the course was confusing. Good place for beginners and kids. Maybe if we had picked up a score card, it would have helped. Won't be playing that again though.

We always make a fall trip golfing and Craguns will probably be off the list for a visit next year. We've been there several years in a row now and are ready for a change of venue. There are several other golf courses and resorts in the area to choose from.

“Awesome Course - bad weather”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We played at the Dutch Legacy course which has a nice variety of elevation changes and sand, marsh and water features. The course itself was in very good condition. It poured rain steadily, but the pro shop did what they could to make our round enjoyable. Will definitely be back under hopefully better weather conditions.
