Description

The Wilderness at Fortune Bay, part of Northern Minnesota's premiere vacation destination at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. Atop high granite ridges just hours north of the Twin Cities, The Wilderness offers spectacular panoramic views from the shores of the magnificent Lake Vermilion. Wrapped around picturesque Minnesota woodlands, which include majestic white and red pines, thick evergreens and dramatic rock outcroppings, the challenging course is as visually stimulating as it is enjoyable to play, making it a true golfer's dream.

The Wilderness has received recognition from highly familiar publications. Golf Magazine named The Wilderness as one of the "Best New Courses to Play." Travel & Leisure Golf recognized The Wilderness as a "2004 Best New Public/Resort Courses." And more recently Golf Digest rated The Wilderness in "America's 100 Greatest You Can Play" and #2 for public courses in Minnesota. GolfWeek listed The Wilderness in the "Best Resort Courses" in the nation, #42 overall and #1 in Minnesota.

Designed by renowned architect Jeffery D. Brauer, The Wilderness measures approximately 7,207 yards from the back tees and is a long hitter's dream, while also catering to golfers of all skill levels by offering four additional sets of tees. In addition, all carts at The Wilderness come equipped with a GPS system designed to maintain a sufficient pace of play and enhance the experience of those playing the course for the first time.
