Championship Golf Experience
Ranked No. 28 on Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses of 2017 & 2018, our private, 18-hole course accentuates the innate beauty and dramatic landscape of Gozzer Ranch. Several holes play along the edges of basalt bluffs where 100-foot-high spires, crags and cliff faces are back-dropped by sweeping views of the lake and nearby mountains. This forested course is so well integrated with its surroundings that it looks like a natural part of the landscape, making a round of golf at Gozzer Ranch a truly magnificent experience.
CHAMPIONSHIP CALIBER WITH DRAMATIC VIEWS
Tom Fazio-Designed Course
Tom Fazio is widely considered to be one of the best golf course designers in the world, with more Top 100 courses in the United States than any other competitor. The three-time recipient of Golf Digest’s Best Golf Course Architect award does not approach any two courses in the same way—each of his projects are unique and of the highest quality. Fazio did not come to Gozzer with any preconceived ideas; instead his vision was inspired by the land, the locale, and the environment.
REFRESH AND RECHARGE ON THE GOLF COURSE
The comfort stations at Gozzer Ranch have become famous throughout Discovery Land Company. With local decor and flavor, our Executive Chef has made the Gozzer Ranch comfort stations a key component of his culinary program. From four different jerkies to tuna and chicken salad to dried fruits, almost everything at the Gozzer comfort stations is homemade. Rustic decorative touches include rocking chairs on the porch for kicking back, a wall-mounted root beer keg tap, and antique appliances for chilling bottled water.
A TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN WORKER
The name Gozzer Ranch was chosen as a tribute to an American Icon. Not as much a tribute to only John Gozzer, but to the idea of the American men who came west to homestead—men who were tough, hearty, and physically and emotionally connected to the land. Wayton Lodge is not about how Discovery Land Company moved a cabin from Minnesota to use as a golf shop—it’s more of a tribute to that way of life. A nod to the authenticity of the places Americans gathered centuries ago.
