1. Past Birdies and Bogeys
My buddy and I used to play a lot of golf back in high school and college. Now we both have families and find it hard to make time to get together often. Golf and Cragun’s are the two things we both agree on and make time for in our busy lives. Each year we plan a small trip up to spend whatever time we can on our favorite courses. Dutch and Bobby’s both bring back fond memories of past birdies and bogeys. Thanks for all the great memories and the memories we will make with you in the future.

2. Wow It Was Spectacular
Years ago I got asked by the Minister of Minnesota Tourism to write an article on golfing in Minnesota. I was lucky enough on my trip to visit and play a variety of courses in Minnesota and to have the pleasure to meet Dutch and his wife Irma. I was there to also meet Robert Trent Jones, Jr. who had just completed designing and building Bobby’s 18. There was a wonderful dinner and grand opening of the new course. The food was excellent and I got to meet Irma, who had just redesigned the inside of the dining area. Her choices of colors and styles where unmatched as you would have thought a professional designer had done it. I had also got to play a round of golf the day before with the Governor Jessie Ventura. I remembered watching him on TV years earlier wrestling. He is quite an interesting man. Back at Cragun’s I got to play the new course and wow it was spectacular. There is nothing that comes even close to this course in Manitoba where I live. I have taken many of my friends down here on golf trips just to show off both courses, with no one been disappointed. I wrote an article on Cragun’s newest addition called Bobby’s in Style Manitoba Magazine to which I had a positive response, with many people inquiring on its location, lodging and things to do in the area. I had wrote all this in the article, but it seemed people didn’t believe that there was such a place just five to six hours away. I hope Dutch and Irma are doing well, and I highly recommend going here if you like to golf, fish or just relax at the lake. Take the family and experience this beautiful resort.

3. First Family Golf Vacation
Cragun’s was our VERY FIRST family golf vacation with our 15 year old son who just learned to golf and caddy! My wife and I couldn’t believe how excited he was to play both courses at Cragun’s! Just being with him and experiencing his excitement for golf with my wife will forever be fondly blueprinted in my memories! By the way, I still can’t believe he out drove me! LOL!!

4. Gorgeous Grounds
During a conference, the family stayed with me and enjoyed lots of golf, spa and fun! Gorgeous grounds! We have sinced moved to Phoenix and my dad died in the Brainerd area last year, so would love to have the opportunity to relive some heart felt memories of family and the wonderful lakes, fishing and golf!!
