Looking for an exceptional course? Then head to Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, located just west of Highway 65 on Highway 242. The course sports 27 holes of golf, simply named West, North and East. The course has been host to a wide array of tournaments from the Senior PGA Tour, to Minnesota High School state boy's and girl's tournaments.
Once you start playing you can see that although they have a lot of trees, they are trimmed fairly high and the grass in the open area is mowed to a very playable length. When you get to the greens you'll find that they are large, sloped and very fast. The greens will test you, especially if you find yourself on the high side. As in the name of the course, you'll also find they put in lots of bunkers. If you land in one, they are filled with some of the nicest sand that you can play out of. One thing you will find is that they can be reached on a lot of the holes with a driver, so be aware of your options. Throughout the course you will find that the tee boxes are well set up, with benches for a quick rest, trash bins and ball washers. They also have good locations for the restroom facilities.
This would be a great course for anyone to walk, with holes close by each other and with the gentle roll of the fairways. The pro shop has everything you will need, at the price you would expect at such a course. They have a nice driving range, as well as a good putting green located right next to the first tee box, so if you want to do some practicing before your round, you won't have far to go when the starter calls you.
There are GPS on the carts for distances, but if you are walking you'll have to look for sprinkler heads for your information. The clubhouse has a bar and grill as well as a restaurant. It also has a lot of history on its walls inside so take time to look around after your round. Bunker Hills is a great facility, the service and people are friendly and helpful, and you will see they take pride in their course the moment you get there.
