Golf at Gull Lake
If you love to golf, you’re in luck. This area of Minnesota is renowned for its high concentration of golf courses in close proximity to one another. With dozens of courses to choose from, you might have a hard time making up your mind! But one thing’s for sure: If you visit Gull Lake between April and October, you’ll easily be able to play some of the best golf of your life!
Why not start at The Pines in Nisswa, which was recognized by Golf Digest as the best course in Minnesota? With three different nine-hole courses to choose from, you’ll experience a challenging variety of landscapes here. Select from Lakes, Woods, and Marsh courses, or play all three for a full day of golf bliss! You’ll also find multiple putting greens, a two-sided driving range, a complete short game practice area, and an award-winning pro shop. Relax afterward at Freddy’s Sports Grill, overlooking the course. Other must-see courses in the area are located at Cragun’s Resort and Madden’s, both with incredible lake views.
Other Outdoor Pursuits
Another great way to enjoy the beauty of the Gull Lake region is from the back of a horse, and there are several stables in the area that can set you up with a great trail ride. Explore the Pillsbury State Forest with Outback Stables, where you’ll experience cool, fragrant forests and wildflower meadows. They also offer horseback riding lessons, so if you’re brand new to riding, or want to brush up your technique, you can work on your skills during your Gull Lake stay!
While outdoor sports are great during vacation, sometimes you just want to relax. If you prefer a more active form of relaxation, book a class at Nisswa Yoga, or if you just need a great massage, visit Glacial Waters Spa to get pampered. Afterward, when you’re all relaxed, browse the local shops in downtown Nisswa for a pleasant afternoon.
Finally, no luxury vacation would be complete without a great meal. One of the most popular upscale restaurants in the area is the Classic Grill at Madden’s Resort, where you’ll find locally inspired American cuisine for lunch and dinner. Enjoy filet mignon, classic walleye, lamb, lobster, and more, all in an intimate setting.
Enjoy planning your luxury trip to Gull Lake!
