Superior National at Lutsen - Progress in Play 

Progress is in play at Superior National Golf Course at Lutsen, a premier Minnesota golf experience by the world's greatest lake.

Nestled on Minnesota's North Shore between Lake Superior and the ancient Sawtooth Mountains, Superior National at Lutsen is an easy 3.5-hour drive from the Twin Cities metro area. Once you get here, absorb the endless coastal view and inhale the northern air, you'll feel like you're a world away.

Superior National at Lutsen is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. And the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness named by National Geographic as one of the world's top 50 “Places of a Lifetime” is barely a stone's throw away.

Don't be surprised if you find yourself sharing the immaculate green with a fox, a whitetail deer, or even a meandering moose.

No wonder Golf Digest rated Superior National #1 in the state of Minnesota. It belongs on every golfer's bucket list.

As a golfer, you're always working to improve your game. So are we. Superior National at Lutsen is currently undergoing a $4.5 million renovation led by renowned golf course architect Jeffrey Brauer.

While our renovation is ongoing, we will always have 18 of the most scenic holes on the North Shore ready for you to play all season long. Schedule a tee time and take a tour.

Superior National at Lutsen: Come for the golf, stay for the scenery. Or vice versa.

Junior Golf Programs


Program #1

Kids ages 6 to 12 that are beginners to the intermediate skill level will come to the Wednesday afternoon clinic from 12:00pm to 1:30pm. It will consist of swing instruction, rules and etiquette and playing holes at Superior National and the Lutsen Resort short course. This program will go for 6 weeks starting June 12th, ends July 24th(no July 3rd). Each participant will receive a gift.  The cost is $60.00.

Program #2
Wednesday mornings starting at 11:00am will be the “Junior League”. This is open to boys and girls who have graduated from the junior program to a competitive skill level. Kids who qualify for this league should have played 9-holes on a regulation, par 36 golf course on different occasions. What they shoot for a score is not a factor on whether they can join this league but as an example; they should be able to score an 8 or better regularly from the front tees. Golfers in this league will need to have an understanding of “Pace of Play”, general knowledge of the “Rules of Golf”, practice sportsmanship and etiquette to the golf course and fellow competitors. Ages 11 to 17 can join this league or with the approval of Heath Ekstrom and Greg Leland. It will start with 20 minutes of instruction and then play 9-holes on the “River” or "Mountain" courses. First day of play will be June 12th (no July 3rd), ends August 21st. We will be done by 2:00pm. The league cost is $60.00, with green fee options below.

League greens fees for program #2 can be covered two ways.

  1. Junior memberships pass for $95.00 + tax = $105.34 This pass will cover all weeks of league play and give you "Junior Playing Membership" throughout the season.

  2. A per time basis of $14.50 + tax = $16.08 (normal junior green fess are $24.50).

Advanced sign-up and payment is recommended as there are many kids and registration takes time the first day. Call Superior National at 218-663-7195 for any questions or to register.
