No. 17 Mesabi Mine & Golf Course
275 Yards, Par 4
This was once a peaceful, easy hole that leisurely worked its way through the local countryside. But in 1892, when a local golfer named Bunyan took an extra large divot, everything changed. Iron ore was discovered. Havoc ensued as iron quotas produced daily course and distance changes, thus making club selection nearly impossible, Also adding to the hole's difficulty was always having in the back of one's mind the thought that a blast of dynamite could occur on any given backswing.
Number 13 handicap.
