Wayzata's Spring Hill Golf Club is home to the toughest course in Minnesota, according to a new ranking from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

State of play: The Business Journal used a metric called slope rating to rank the state's courses.

By the numbers: Spring Hill, an 18-hole private club, scored 149 on that scale. A course with a standard difficulty rating would register a 113.

  • Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska and TPC Twin Cities in Blaine rounded out the top three.

Between the holes: Spring Hill, designed by the legendary golf course architect Tom Fazio, is also known for its natural beauty, Golf Digest writes.
