Although we live in the area, we have never been members at Thumper Pond and rarely played it. We just played this week, and I saw again what a beautiful course it was, with challenging greens and fairways. Hats off to the greens keeper, the course was in excellent shape! We will definitely play again and more often!

Great rates if you are a resort guest. Definitely worth a play if you are in the area. Shot makers course with large greens. Good service and nice lounge for conversation on the 19th hole.

Well maintained and accomodating staff. One of the pricier @ $65 but worth it. The fairways are not hook or slice friendly but the pines make it fairly easy to locate a stray ball. Each hole unique for the others so you don't think you just played it.

Very well kept golf course. Tight fairways so be accurate! Good price both for golf and inside the pro shop.

Nice course that is relatively easy to get on to and nice restuarant. Good carts. Course has some pinch points where driving straight is rewarded. Greens are consistantly kept in good shape. A couple of scenic holes near the clubhouse.

Thumper Pond has continued to grow and improve since they open on the east side of Ottertail lake. The course is maintained very well and they are happy to take your reservation for a T-time and accomodate you or your group. Knowledgable guys in the Club House and Willy T's Restaurant/Bar is a great place for good food or to... More

Thumper is a great golf course, I live about 20 mintues from the course and love this course, too bad my slice doesnt. Fairways are lined with pine trees so if you are a beginner you should bring extra balls.
