Golf

The centerpiece of Dellwood Country Club is our 18-hole championship golf course, which is a perfect balance of challenging beauty and relaxing fun. Our signature 9th hole is considered one of the finest holes in the state, and Golf Digest has ranked our course among the top 10 in the nation. Readers of White Bear Lake Magazine awarded Dellwood CC with “Best Golf Course” in the area.

Our six sets of tees ensure that every ability level can enjoy our course. Our forward tees play 5,371 and 5,771 yards. The middle set of tees play 6,129 and 6,446 yards. Dellwood’s championship tees play 6,751 and 7,028 yards. Dellwood is ranked #6 in Minnesota from the back tees.

USGA Certified

Our dedication to ecologically sound land management and the conservation of natural resources has earned certification from the USGA and Audubon International as an Audubon Sanctuary golf course. Our environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical reduction and water conservation has a positive impact that extends beyond the boundaries of the golf course and helps benefit the entire community.

Junior Golf

Our Junior Golf program has over 100 juniors who participate annually. We have had three State High School champions come from our Club, and over 20 players go on to compete at the collegiate level.

Events and Activities

The summer is packed with fun, from Junior Guest Day when players are welcome to bring guests for a fun scramble event followed by food and prizes to our Junior Fun Day where we venture out from the Club to places like Valley Fair.  And as a fitting finale to the season, our Junior Golfers will enjoy competing in their own Junior Club Championship.

Lessons

The mission of the Dellwood Country Club Junior Golf Program is to nurture Junior Golfers in the rules, etiquette, and skills necessary for them to develop a passion for golf, the game of a lifetime.  Following the Instructional Clinics, juniors will play golf on the course based on their experience level: 3 holes, 5 holes, 9 holes or 18 holes. Beginning golfers will also play holes on the course while supervised by the Golf Staff.
