Taking advantage of the late season good weather, we visited the Chaska Town Course on Friday to play 18 holes. The fall special walking rate is $40, which includes a cart after 2pm.
Similar to The Wilds, housing has sprung up around this course the past few years. It takes some of the character away, in my opinion, but none of it gets too close to the action to really impact play.
This Arthur Hills design has always had unique features, including the drivable par-4 third hole and the picturesque par-5 eighteenth hole. The greens Friday were much faster than I ever remember and the fall colors were spectacular.
I always have trouble scoring on this course, but I think I just need to play it more often. The City of Chaska should be very proud of their baby – it’s a gem.Originally published by DK on October 12, 2008 at 12:28 am
