The original Braemar layout had a par 3 in this same spot that played downhill to a similar green location. It was a favorite memory of the locals.
The views of surrounding holes four, five, six, 14 and 15 are worth the trip as is the distant Minnesota landscape. From a design standpoint, the three-club difference from back tee to green tempers the long climb. The putting surface is broken into five separate pin placements set almost in a pinwheel fashion around the center point, some of which are separated by ridges and others by swales.
