Putt Like the Pros

Putt Like the Pros.jpg
Golf season is finally in (excuse the pun) full swing again in Minnesota. If you haven't been practicing in the off-season, chances are your game is a little rusty. Check out some of our putting tips to take your short game to the next level:

Take Address
Stand so that your eyes are over the ball. Stand in a position that is comfortable for you and ensures correct posture. Your body should maintain a consistent motion with your elbows held to your sides.

Be Flexible
Don’t play with a stiff body, flex your knees and keep your shoulders relaxed. Not only will this make your putt closer to perfection, but it will also keep you more relaxed while on the green. If you have a hard time relaxing your body during your putt, try moving further or closer to the ball and practice putting.

If you found that you need to move away from the ball, but yet still can’t sink the putt, step sideways. Try moving to your left or right and find your pendulum swing sweet spot. You will only make a perfect putt consistently when you learn to hit the ball dead square.
Take the shot
Remember to relax and keep a slow and controlled movement. Don’t worry about rushing through the putt. If you feel uncomfortable taking your time, don’t – we’ve all started somewhere. In no time, you will be putting like a pro and swinging low scoring games.

One of the best things you can do to improve your game is simple… practice! Get out on the green and take a few shots. For tee times, location, online specials and more, visit our website at

Celebrating Our Silver Anniversary at Blueberry Pines

This season marks Blueberry Pines’ 25th Silver Anniversary! We are so grateful for everyone who has supported us over the years and are extremely excited to celebrate our 25th year with all of you. The start of a new season brings new beginnings and updates to our facilities. As you may or may not know, we have been working very hard over the winter months updating our banquet, dining, and lounge areas. Let’s take a look at some of the updates that have been made:

We have added new stairs and an updated railing to the loft in the dining area. Now guests will be able to easily access and enjoy the loft during dinners/functions.


Near the entrance, we have expanded the host area and the kitchen into the dining area. We also moved the snack bar and expanded the kitchen in its place.


We have also made updates to our dining and banquet areas along with updates to our buffet. On the golf course side, we have new carts, and our pro shop is stocked full with new golf equipment!


We look forward to sharing all of these exciting updates with you! The golf course and range have officially opened and we are putting the finishing touches on the dining and lounge areas, which are officially opening April 6th (Lounge) and April 15th (Dining area). We will, however, be opening our dining area for our Easter Brunch on Sunday, March 27th, though the updates to our banquet and dining facilities will not be complete. There will be 3 distinct seating times at 10:30 AM, 12:15 PM, and 1:45 PM. We hope to see you there!
