This spring, 18-hole golf returns to Edina as Braemar Golf Course is set to reopen with a redesigned course, as well as new and improved league offerings.
Braemar Golf Course
The recent addition of Red River Kitchen at Braemar makes this golf course a year-round foodie destination.
If you head over to Braemar Golf Course on a Friday in May or June, you will find an inspiring group of 60 golfers and volunteers—all thanks to an Edina golf instructor, the late Larry Nelson. Nelson had two passions, junior golf and adaptive golf, and he started an adaptive golf program in Richfield in 1990. “He started the program because he wanted to give back to golf and try something different,” says Mike Grube, a Braemar PGA professional and adaptive golf program volunteer.
The days are getting longer and warmer, but it’s not summer quite yet. Head over to the newly renovated Braemar Golf Dome to squeeze in some pre-season practice on one of the 46 tee areas before the Dome closes mid-April. Practice on your own or sign up for lessons with one of the five PGA professionals on staff.
