Northwood Hills Golf Course at Mille Lacs

Course Details

For over 40 years, the Mille Lacs Golf Course in Garrison, Minnesota has welcomed golfers from all around. Opened in 1969, it is known as the location for golf the whole family can enjoy. Our proximity to Grand Casino Mille Lacs means a change of pace is only a short drive away.  After many years known as a beautiful and prestine course, the property started to age and lost some of its glory.  In August 2014, Hardwoods Golf Course was purchased by the Appeldoorn family and will be re-opening in spring 2015 as Northwood Hills Golf Course.  We have been working hard on restoring the beauty of its original days and are excited to share that with golfers this spring!

Prepare yourself for an unparalleled 18-hole golfing experience. Our course is a pleasure for golfers of any skill level to play. Northwood Hills Golf Course will challenge you while providing a relaxing, picturesque backdrop. Test your accuracy with our fairways, water hazards and sand traps; we have everything you need to challenge you and improve your game. All in all, our goal is to provide you with a quality experience that includes exceptional service and a comfortable atmosphere.
