Golfing at Superior National


Superior National is located in Lutsen, Minnesota on the Beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior. We are 90 miles north of Duluth, MN and 90 miles south of Thunder Bay, Canada.

We are tucked away in the Minnesota Northwoods, between Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. Superior National pairs untamed beauty with unparalleled play, now enhanced by a $4.6 million renovation.

27 Holes of Resort Golf, Open to the Pubic
Superior National is a public golf course offering 27 holes of spectacular resort golf. Unbelievable vistas of Lake Superior and other natural features can be seen as you play around the course.

The River and Canyon nines make up the newly renovated “Premier 18.” The Mountain 9 is our 9-hole course ideal for an emergency 9 or a game of FootGolf.

Perfect for scratch players, beginners, and everyone in between, everyone is welcome and encouraged to come play a round or two!

The River & Canyon 18 – the new Premier 18
River 9
This is the front 9 of our newly renovated Premier 18. This par 35 features five sets of tees, and is the easier of the nines to start with. As the Poplar River cuts through, it comes into play on a few of the holes, making for a challenging, natural obstacle. This course is also marked by elevation changes – uphill on holes 2 – 5, downhill on 6-8, and back uphill on 9.

Canyon 9
The back 9 of the newly renovated Primer 18. Because of the dramatic valley-like terrain, some may refer to this course as “target golf.” You’ll want to select the right club off the tee to overcome challenges like ravine ponds, the Poplar River, and narrow fairways. The par-36 has five sets of tees, is surrounded by forest, and shows off great views of Lake Superior.

Mountain 9 & Footgolf
Play in the natural setting of Lake Superior’s Sawtooth Mountains, adjacent to the Superior National Forest. Experience nature’s soundtrack at this Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The Mountain 9 is perfect for a quick game of 9 holes or going for a full 27. FootGolf is also located here, making it another fun-filled activity offered on the North Shore.
