Back in the fall of 2014, I took on Mississippi Dunes right along the Mississippi River. Only a short drive from nearby St. Paul, the course incorporates several links features into it's design. The course features 6 par 5's giving the golfer plenty of opportunities for some birdie action.
My favorite moment from my round here was when I found the bunker about 50 yards out on the par 5, 13th named "Railroad." The bunker features railroad ties set against the edge of the bunker sloping upward. Instead of attempting the difficult long bunker shot, I elected to smack my putter up the railroad ties and onto the green. It was a unique ramp style shot and I have yet to play this style of shot again. I two putted for an easy sand save.
