The Bird Golf Academy's mid-west golf school base is at the incredible Grand View Lodge Resort and Spa. Grand View Lodge is not only Minnesota's premier golf resort but is one of the finest resorts in all the Mid-West and was the only Minnesota resort to be named a Top 10 Northern U.S. Golf Resort by Condé Nast Traveler. Located on beautiful Gull Lake in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes area, Grand View is in all ways, spectacular. This magnificent resort has every amenity that you would expect from a world class golf resort and is an easy drive from the twin-cities.
Minnesota Golf School
Bird Golf students have unlimited access to The Pines and The Preserve golf courses. The Pines, which is nationally recognized for its 27 Championship holes has been the recipient of Golf Magazine's, Silver Medal as well as, in 2002, being rated by Golf Digest as Minnesota's only 5 star course. Bird Golf school students are able to practice in their private range area and also hone their skills on three separate putting greens with a complete short game area. Set in softly rolling hills amid the splendor of birch, maple and ash trees, the Preserve, is similarly acclaimed. With eleven elevated tees, our golf school students experience some of the most splendid vistas, anywhere, in the United States.
