130 Yards – Par 3

The ‘Mount Rushmore’ of Par 3’s include the Redan, the Eden, the Biarritz and the Short.  These four one shot holes provide a classic variety of length, green type and hazards that uniquely test a variety of a golfer’s skills during the round.  Minnesota Valley’s Short is the second of back to back par 3’s. After testing length with accuracy at the previous hole, the 12th tests precision with short game.  The tee shot is the most picturesque on the property, played over water and a deep bunker to a large, wide, back to front sloping green.  One of Raynor’s signature features is the ‘Thumbprint’, a contoured depression in the green surface that creates havoc for putting to pin positions located right of center.
