Hole 13
Par 3 | 133 – 204 Yards

About this hole

The original Braemar layout had a par 3 in this same spot that played downhill to a similar green location. It was a favorite memory of the locals.

The views of surrounding holes four, five, six, 14 and 15 are worth the trip as is the distant Minnesota landscape. From a design standpoint, the three-club difference from back tee to green tempers the long climb. The putting surface is broken into five separate pin placements set almost in a pinwheel fashion around the center point, some of which are separated by ridges and others by swales.

Playing tip

Demanding on walkers, yes, but the view is too good to pass up. Rarely does such elevation change (more than 80 feet downhill) present itself on a site that isn’t found in the mountains. Yet as such a dramatic view of the Twin Cities as this hole affords, the green still presents a challenge in the form of a series of high points scattered randomly from back to front and side to side. Three sand bunkers frame both sides of the green. A short tee shot must be followed up with a recovery shot played over a mound/ridge complex onto the putting surface.
