Giants Ridge is the No. 1-rated family vacation destination in Minnesota. Located north of Duluth in the heart of Minnesota’s unspoiled Superior National Forest of the Mesabi Iron Range, Giants Ridge offers incredible four-season fun and adventure for every level of outdoor enthusiast.
Summer is filled with world-class golf, incredible mountain biking and even more outdoor summer fun, including hiking, disc golf, and rock climbing. Among the Superior National forest, there are many places to hike, camp, fish, and explore the natural beauty of Minnesota’s Northeast.
Giants Ridge has long been considered one of Minnesota’s best resort golf vacation destinations. Year after year, national golf publications have ranked the Legend and the Quarry near or at the top of the best golf courses in the state.
Few other golf facilities in the nation can claim more than one course in Golf Digest‘s “Top 100” list and no other Minnesota resort offers two highly ranked courses of this caliber, at an affordable price. The Quarry was built on the site of an old sand/gravel and iron ore mining operation, and has earned the best public golf course in Minnesota for seven consecutive years from Golfweek. The Legend is often noted as the start of the golf boom in northern Minnesota, known across the globe as one of the best golf destinations in the world.
