Founded in 1910, The Faribault Golf Club has welcomed members and visitors for more than a century to its 18-hole, semiprivate course. Traverse a time-tested links of open vistas, gently rolling fairways, and well-groomed greens designed in part by Interlachen golf pro and Grammy-winning bazouki player Willie Kidd. In addition to challenging sand traps, deciduous and evergreen trees patrol the course to test golfers' mettle. Masterfully avoid stepping on cracks that break mothers' backs by rolling over them (mothers, that is) in the included golf cart.
Faribault Golf Club
With a front nine that dates back to 1910 and a second nine first designed in 1956, Faribault Golf Club has established a historical legacy that includes hosting the Minnesota State Open and Minnesota PGA Pro-Am. The fairway chain stretches across 6,447 yards of gently undulating terrain, where fairway-side timbers, glassy ponds, and hypnotic tee boxes supply the bulk of the course's difficulty. Water hazards come into play on five holes, including the par 3 eighth, where players must send tee shots somersaulting over a pond stationed directly between the green and the divot-pocked launch pad. The par 5 18th offers a grandiose finish to the round, where a sound approach shot can set up a birdie putt that, if made, grants golfers the right to carve the club's decorative hedges into their favorite acronym. After their round, guests can retire to the Top View Grill, a full-service bar and restaurant with a fireplace, outdoor seating, and splendid views of the 9th and 18th holes.
