Brand New Hole #4

Lehman 18 Course - What Are The New Changes (2023)

By Brian Weis


Following a multi-million-dollar renovation by Minnesota native and PGA professional golfer Tom Lehman, the Lehman 18 made its grand debut on Monday, July 24, 2023 at Cragun's Resort with an official teeing off ceremony.

Initially the rumor was a few holes were renovated with wider landing areas and new bunkers.

"Quite the contrary", Jack Wawro, Director of Golf shared. "The project was a complete over haul of the golf course in some cases renovating existing holes, combining holes and even adding brand new ones. For golfers it will be an all new experience."
