Minnesota's Premier Golf

Welcome to Minnesota's premiere golf facility, just 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis! Rush Creek was founded in 1996 by W. Duncan MacMillan. He had a spectacular vision to turn an old golf course and farm into a first class golf facility. An avid sportsman, he wanted to make sure golf was a sport that everyone could participate in, so he created a private club feel for a public golf course. Working with renowned architects, John Fought and Bob Cupp, the course and original clubhouse were built and his dream became a reality. Soon after golfers started playing, it became quite evident that a clubhouse expansion was needed. In 2000, our MacMillan Ballroom and Banquet Center were opened. South-west exposure gives breath-taking views of the golf course and wetlands. You will experience the "Wow!" factor. We are proud to continue our founder's vision and work hard to provide a high level of service. We look forward to making your visit one of a kind.
