Craguns Legacy


The three incredible Cragun’s Legacy Courses stand out among the many exceptional golf courses on the Brainerd Golf Trail, one of the “World’s Top Golf Destinations.”

The Legacy’s unique 45-holes of golf can all be played out of the beautiful 35,000 square foot Legacy Clubhouse, featuring a sports bar, restaurant and pro shop—all at one location.

The Legacy Pro Shop boasts the latest gear and all club cars, equipped with Pro Link GPS. Plus, you’ll receive the legendary service that sets Cragun’s Legacy Courses apart from the rest.

Reversible Par 3


Inspired by the layout of the historic St. Andrew’s course in Scotland, the reversible 9-hole, par 27 course with 18 tees that alternate daily is ideal for practice, group play and a place for families and novices to have fun and learn the game. Pull carts, rental power carts and clubs are available.



Bobby’s Legacy is named after the master, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. What appears to be close at hand, within easy distance, may not be as easy to achieve as it looks.

The front 9 features some elusive, shorter par 4s that blend with long, tough par 4s and a par 5 with a waterfall cascading along the green to challenge all the shots in a golfer’s arsenal. Beware the subtle slopes that Bobby has masterfully worked into the greens, testing your nerves on those tricky three and four foot putts.

The Back nine features more elusive, shorter par 4s that blend with longer and more difficult par 4s.Players will enjoy a blend of low lying areas near numerous wetlands, elevation changes, dramatic lake vistas and the Legacy brand of scenic holes.   



The Dutch course features six Par 3’s, six Par 4’s, and six Par 5’s. Multiple tee complexes make the course eminently payable for each level golfer, keeping it interestingly fun and different each time it’s played.

By winding 8 of 9 holes among wetlands and marshes, the back 9 is designed to capture the beauty of the preserved wetlands and woods.It is dedicated to the proposition that a championship course can challenge a player both mentally and physically, yet still be friendly to all levels of golfers.It draws out the thinker in every player.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. We are in charge of our attitudes.
