The Pines is Blooming with New Golf Carts and GPS System Grand View Lodge may be known as the most rewarded golf resort in Minnesota, but now they will also be known as one of the leaders in golf technology.

Every new golf season produces course and technology updates, but the 2014 year at the Pines Golf Course boasts of 104 new Club Car Precedent i2s and Visage GPS System. The new Club Cars have plenty of upgraded features and the latest in drive train technology. Rain club covers, waterproof storage areas and a trendy white body with light gray seating will take the fairways in full swing.

Grand View Lodge may be known as the most rewarded golf resort in Minnesota, but now they will also be known as one of the leaders in golf technology.With this new GPS system in place, the Pines is focusing on being the best “pace of play” resort courses in the state!  This system allows both the pro shop and the customer the ability to see the pace of play.  This combined with our friendly player assistant staff will allow the Pines’ pace of play to be excellent even on the busiest of days.

The Visage GPS System is also what a golfer could consider his own personal concierge service and caddy. The touch screen technology provides yardages to front, pin and back of green and to any point you touch on hole. It also tracks distances of the tee ball hit, flyover at tee box and pace of play. Golfers can also order food and beverages on every hole and enjoy an electronic scorecard that can be instantly emailed at the end of the round.

Young Golfers Unite / Online Tee Times

Grand View Lodge is excited to offer a summer-filled with golf for the next generation of pros – our children! We also offer “rookie” clinics for beginner adult golfers for just $25 per person, held every Wednesday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. If your child is age 5-15, they can also join the free junior clinics, which are held every Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

If you’re coming to enjoy a day of golf at Grand View Lodge, make sure to bring your little golfer along! We offer free golf for all juniors (age 5-15) at the Garden Course, which features a kids tee box and 6” cups on each green, or young golfers pay $10 golf at the Pines or Preserve (age 10-15) with a paid adult – all season long!

Clinics and free lessons start on May 26 and run until September 2. “Our clinics are designed to fill the knowledge gap whether it’s as simple as correcting a golf swing, to more in-depth skills and techniques that can make or break your game,” said Jack Wawro, The Pines Head Golf Pro. “Most times, guests just need a couple hints to improve their stance and swing to help them really enjoy the game.” All summer clinics are held at the Pines’ driving range and ask guests to meet in the Pines’ clubhouse 15 minutes prior to the session start. Contact Jack Wawro at 218-963-8741 for more information about signing up for the clinics and free lessons.
