Brainerd Lakes has everything visiting women golfers could hope to find in a destination trip

Brainerd Lakes might be the most quintessential of Minnesota’s summer vacation experiences. Whether you’re playing golf, paddleboarding, dining or just relaxing at your lakeside cabin, everything is geared toward being outdoors, near or on the lakes. 

“Because we’re the land of 10,000 lakes, people do all of the winter sports, but in the summertime, it’s golf, boating and fishing,” said Ashlee Ciora, owner of Women’s Golf & Travel, a Minneapolis-based company that specializes in golf trips for women. “I think Minnesota has so much to offer.”

So regularly do your activities bring you to the water’s edge that it sometimes seems as if all 10,000 lakes are concentrated in Brainerd Lakes. The setting, along with the quality of golf and accommodations, makes it an ideal destination for women looking to arrange a group golf trip.

There are numerous lodging options, but start with Grand View Lodge, which has everything a group of women golfers could want in a resort. 

“I’d book a women’s group there in a heartbeat,” Ciora said.

Grand View has an abundance of elegant lodging options, depending on what your group wants. Guests can choose to stay in Grand View’s main property, which sits on the north side of Gull Lake, with its grand staircase that leads down to the sandy beach. It’s also convenient to the resort’s Glacial Waters Spa and to dining, including Cru, an intimate, French-inspired restaurant, The Preserve Smokehouse, offering authentic BBQ, and Char, a classic steakhouse. The boutique North Hotel, which has 60 rooms, is also located on the main property.

What’s wonderful about Grand View is that there are plenty of options for a group of ladies who want to spend more time together. Those include the Roy Lake cabins and villas, located 1.5 miles from the main property, or the new North Pines neighborhood, with its luxurious four- and five-bedroom private homes adjacent to The Pines Golf Course

The 27-hole Pines Course is a stiff test, a true player’s course, while The Preserve clubhouse and course are known for some of the best scenery in the state, and that’s accentuated by the layout’s elevated tees. 

A golf group could find everything they wanted at Grand View to keep themselves entertained for the entirety of a long weekend, but Brainerd Lakes has so much more to offer.

Located about 12 miles north of Grand View Lodge, on the shores of Pelican Lake, Breezy Point Resort has…
