Located above the Minnesota River, Bluff Creek Golf Course is picturesque in that it offers great views of the beautiful river valley. Upon arrival, the course's friendly staff greet golfers and assist in getting ready their rounds.
Many improvements have been made to Bluff Creek over the years. A driving range and practice area have been added. New golf carts have been purchased with the added feature of GPS. This particular addition is very helpful because many of the holes have blind tee shots and by having GPS, players will know exactly where to place shots as they approach the green. Hole #12 is a scenic par 4 which has an elevated green above Bluff Creek. This hole is best defined as a signature hole. Having the GPS feature makes holes like these even better in terms of the challenge and the score. Also, the carts have the pull-over cover for the golf bags so that in case of rain, bags and clubs will be kept dry.
Bluff Creek offers several leagues, lessons and programs. The golf course reaches out to many corporate and non-profit entities for group outings and various tournaments throughout the season. Lessons are also available for persons of all age groups. Bluff Creek's mission statement is: Golf is our passion and we want people to love their golf at Bluff Creek.

The bluffs are very apparent on the front nine as there are sharp doglegs. Along the #3 fairway, wild turkeys were seen sauntering about.
