An Unrivaled Golf Experience

Since new ownership (in 2012), over $15MM in capital improvements have been put into the Club, much of which has gone into long-term improvements to the golf course to ensure premier playing conditions. Recent renovations to the course include new Augusta White bunker sand (2021) and a complete Driving Range renovation (2021). Over the past eight years, over five miles of drain tile have been added, along with annual maintenance practices to continuously improve drainage, making the course playable despite weather conditions. Dellwood’s 18-hole championship course finds an incredible balance of playability for all skill levels – fun for the novice player yet challenging for the skilled player. With six sets of tees ranging from 5,350 to 7,050 yards, there is an offering for all! Whether you want to walk the golf course with our new Clic Gear push carts, ride through on our Finn Scooters, or cruise through with our new EZ GO golf carts, you’ll be treated to a nature hike through 200 acres of aesthetic beauty.

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.


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.


We encourage juniors to participate in the MGA InterClub Series (our Dellwood team travels to play against other teams in our area), and the PGA Junior Tour, which has many outstanding events hosted by various Minnesota courses.

Golf Shop

The Golf Shop at Dellwood is fully stocked for all your golfing needs. Our PGA Professionals are happy to arrange play with demo equipment, assist with special orders and help with custom fittings. It has all you need to get the most out of your game.
