From the very first signs of spring to the last, crisp days of fall, you’ll find golfers hitting the links in Three Rivers Parks. Three Rivers operates 63 holes of golf at four locations with driving ranges across the Twin Cities metro area. With scenic courses designed to challenge all levels of ability, you won't have to drive far to get your fix. Come practice your swing or round up a foursome and play a friendly round. Equipment rental is available at each of our courses.
At the Golf Academy in Three Rivers, our most important goal is to maximize your enjoyment of the game of golf. Our team of experienced teaching professionals offers a full progression of lessons for golfers of all ages and skill levels.

Programs and Events
Upcoming golf programs and events.
FootGolf is played by kicking a soccer ball to a hole using the same basic rules of golf. The soccer ball and hole are proportionate in size to a golf ball and a golf hole. Non-spiked shoes are required. FootGolf can be found at Baker National, Cleary Lake and Eagle Lake Golf Courses. Balls are available for rent.
If putting is your game, try out Eagle Lake's 18-hole miniature golf course.
Other things to do
If you want to get up close and personal or learn a little more, try visiting one of our nature centers. At Eastman, Lowry, or Richardson Nature Centers, you can hike the trails, interact with seasonal exhibits, observe up close the unique characteristics of different wildlife species, conduct your own science experiment and meet a live animal.
Make new memories eating al fresco at a Three Rivers park picnic area in a beautiful, natural setting. All sites have picnic tables, and most sites have other basic amenities including water fountains and permanent grills. Look for a peaceful, serene location or set up just steps from a rip-roaring play area.
Create new memories at our play areas. Three Rivers has multiple areas designed for varying ages and abilities where toddlers to teens can let their imagination run wild. Monkey business never sounded so fun.
If you like sledding, you’ll love snow tubing at the Winter Recreation Area at Elm Creek. Ride a moving sidewalk up a hill 10 stories high and then soar back down on a specially designed inner tube. Once you get to the bottom, do it all over again. Tubers of all ages will have a blast speeding down the chutes.
