I spent the past two days playing the multiple-award-winning Wilderness at Fortune Bay course in Tower, Minnesota. The weather both days was mixed–rain, wind, sun, hot, cold–typical northern Minnesota variety, I guess.
The difference between the blue tees and the white tees is substantial (6772 versus 6147). I played the longer tees the first day and the shorter ones today. My score wasn’t all that different, but it does make a big difference on a few holes.
The course was in decent shape, but the rain made it very soggy and they top-dressed the greens during my early morning round today.
We had a play and stay package, but it turns out you don’t save very much on your rounds. Lots of issues with the hotel as well–they are adding 58 rooms and there is too much construction noise. Add in the relatively thin walls to begin with and we ended up having to move rooms.Originally published by DK on June 19, 2007 at 12:24 pm
