6364 John Harris Dr, Edina, MN 55439
Braemar Golf Course is conveniently located in southwest Edina in Braemar Park. The park is 500 acres of rolling hills and scenic lakes surrounded by beautiful, untouched oak ridges. There’s a feeling of seclusion amidst its urban setting, only 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis.
Because Edina was named by its original Scottish settlers after Edinburgh, and because golf was originally a Scottish game, a Scotch name was deemed appropriate for the park and golf course. The name “Braemar” was chosen to reflect the village and course so named in Scotland. Construction on the original 18-hole golf course, driving range and par three course began in February 1963, and the first round was played on July 22, 1964. Since then, Braemar has been constantly expanding and changing.
Braemar hosted a PGA event, the 1969 Minnesota Classic – one of only four PGA events hosted on a public golf course that year. Braemar received national attention in 1979 when the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship was held in Edina. State tournaments held at Braemar include the Minnesota Senior Open, Minnesota Public Links Championship and the Minnesota Women’s Amateur Public Links.
The first new regulation 18-Hole golf course in Minnesota in more than a decade on the site of the existing 27-Hole Golf Course.
The new design has wider fairways with minimal number of hazards to create strategic options for all talent levels.
Braemar’s Academy 9 is a great Par 3 golf course for players of all abilities. Each green has two pin placements and offers an easier flagstick with larger 6” cups for the novice golfer. There are three tee boxes to choose from on each hole offering a nice variety and the potential for a greater challenge for the more experienced player. The holes vary in length from 70 to 194 yards with rolling hills and native grasses that help create an interesting but approachable layout.
The turf box has doubled in size and accommodates up to 68 golfers at one time. The turf area gives golfers a perfect fairway lie throughout the summer. The large tee box allows grass to rest and regenerate, enduring better grass conditions for golfers all season long. The turf teeing area measures approximately 114,000 square feet and is the largest for a public facility in the region.
Six realistic target greens with surrounding bunkers gives golfers the feeling of playing off of a fairway while practicing. Each target green is varied in yardage and regulation size to mimic unlimited golf shot scenarios.
The Golf Dome Is Closed For The Season And Will Re-Open November 1st.
