124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2



Deacon's Lodge Golf Course

Pequot Lakes, MN Public

Overview

A former member of our 100 Greatest Public list, Deacon’s Lodge is a scenic Arnold Palmer signature course that plays through woodlands and around lakes. The fairways have a lot of movement to them and are often banked on the sides, filtering balls toward the middle. There are some forced carries over native grasses, which add to the aesthetics of this central Minnesota layout.
