About Enger Park Golf Course
Enger Park Golf Course just south of downtown set atop a high bluff, Enger Park treats golfers to enjoyable experiences and breathtaking views of Duluth Harbor. Built in 1927 near the historic Enger Park Tower, the 27-hole course features three, distinct parkland-, links- and traditional-style layouts. Ranging from 3,168 to 3,359 yards, the par-36, “Front 9,” “Middle 9” and “Back 9” presents golfers with distinct experiences as several holes run through densely wooded areas while others navigate around scenic ponds and strategic bunkers. Four sets of tees ensure fun but fair tests for all handicappers.
Both Enger Park offers full driving ranges, chipping and putting greens to improve your game. Professional instruction is also available at both locations.
