Thanks to Mike Grandgeorge and his brothers for sending
in the course map and other information about this far northerly gem of
a sand greens course which was featured in the September 1998 issue of
the Roseau Electric Cooperative journal, Volts & Views. The
article written by Jill Helgeson is titled Birds and bears are par
for the course at Northwest Angle golf club. As the title indicates,
you can expect to see eagles, osprey, cranes, deer and even bears on the
course. Northwest Angle Country Club was cut out of a hay field and woods.
The course was built by George and Judy Risser on their property and has
grown from an idea and idle to talk over cards in the 1980's, to six-holes,
then to seven and on to its current nine by the late 1990's. The course
has seeded grass fairways, sand traps and sand greens. An old granary
building serves as a clubhouse for the course.
Putting on Hole #3. The shortest hole at NW Angle Country Club is Hole
#3, a 119 yard par 3 followed by the longest hole on the course, Hole
#4 at 363 yards.
Driving on Hole #4 - Narrow Gap
Famous Hole #9 - Very Narrow Fairway
