Mississippi Dunes - Cottage Grove, MN

Mississippi Dunes is a great place to play 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 also features 6 par 5's giving the golfer plenty of opportunities for birdies.  

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.  I two putted for an easy sand save.
