I stopped by Deer Run Golf Club in Victoria yesterday ─ the parking lot was full, the Pro Shop was buzzing and friends and acquaintances were enjoying camaraderie after time on the green.
Known as one of one of Minnesota’s premier 18-hole championship golf courses, Deer Run Golf Club is noted for friendly and attentive service along with a meticulously maintained golf course. While I’m not much of a golfer, I do enjoy the ambience of a well-appointed clubhouse overlooking a beautiful course ─ a feature Deer Run can be proud of.
What was once lush farmland has been transformed into a scenic course featuring lake views, rolling hills and 18 holes of enjoyment for the recreational golfer and/or challenge for the advanced player. Deer Run has become a popular special event golf venue in the western metro, and offers various golf leagues for men, women and seniors.
Established in 1989, Deer Run combines old-fashioned charm with modern amenities that include a restaurant, driving range, practice green, motor cart, pull cart, golf club rental, club fitting, Pro Shop, lessons, a changing room and a beverage cart on both nines. The clubhouse, converted from the original one hundred year-old McKnight farmhouse, exudes warmth and comfort. The restaurant serves simple fair available for breakfast or lunch/dinner depending on the activities of the day.
A sparkling gem nestled amidst lakes and encircled by the neighborhood of Deer Run, Deer Run Golf Club allows you to play and stay – if you live in a home nearby. If you are a golfer who wants easy access to a great course, or if you just enjoy the beauty of being surrounded by green, call John Wichmann at 612-309-4749 for a personal tour of his Deer Run neighborhood to learn more.
