The Grantsburg Golf Course was established in 1927, making it one of the first small village owned courses in the upper Midwest. The original 14 acres of land were donated by H.A. Anderson, an early banker in the county, whose house abutted the property.
It was originally constructed as six hole, sand green golf course and located east of the current hospital facility. It remained a six hole course until the mid-1960’s when a group of private citizens and the Village of Grantsburg joined together to expand the golf course.
For several years, an appointed citizen commission comprised of Gene Jensen and Miles McNally oversaw golf course operations. Since 1972, the golf course has been overseen by the Village Board’s Park’s Committee and employed a clubhouse manager and head groundskeeper to manage operations. The Park’s Committee reported to the Village Board.
In late April of 2007, a local group of volunteers stepped up to manage the Grantsburg Golf Course. There has been significant volunteer effort from community members to modify the golf course to accommodate BMC’s building expansion project and make significant repairs and upgrades including building a new number three green, a complete renovation of the irrigation system, a more extensive cart path system, as well as many other improvements. In 2007, the golf course was changed from a par 33 to a par 32 golf course, but has managed to maintain all of its charm, complexity, and playability.
