Gross National Golf Course Minneapolis

Francis A. Gross Golf Club

The Gross Golf Course is one of the five 18-hole golf courses that are part of the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board.

The course was built in the year 1925 and was named after Francis A. Gross who was a park commissioner. 


It’s a beautiful course with mature trees that dot the fairways which makes one wonder whether the facility is in the countryside or inside a city.

The facility is a Certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary – awarded to courses that protect and conserve the natural aspects and characteristics of the land.

The course is characterized by mild undulations with elevated tees and greens.

This is not a particularly challenging course. There are certain holes that are long and as long as you hit straight you wouldn’t have any issues.

Although there is water present, it doesn’t really come into play.

With 4 sets of tees, this course can be fun for golfers at all skill levels.
