Grand View Lodge, Deacon's Lodge
23521 Nokomis Ave
Nisswa, Minnesota 56468-2711
Architect Name - Arnold Palmer (1999)
Grand View would qualify as a classic Midwestern golf resort even if its golf offerings were limited to its original 27-hole, Joel Goldstrand-designed Pines course and its family-friendly Garden 9. In particular, the Pines teems with variety and handsome challenges in its Northwoods setting. That said, Grand View then opened it's Preserve course in 1996 and the nearby Deacon's Lodge in 1999, the latter one of Arnold Palmer's finest designs.
