Brookview’s Winter Trails Are Open At Last
December 29, 2015
With the recent snowfall, Brookview Golf Course winter trails are now open for business, finally, with trails for fat tire biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skijouring, and winter walking. On weekends, warm up inside or around the outdoor fire pit and enjoy a variety of food and beverage offerings. Rest rooms and locker rooms will also be available. Here are just a few things to look for at Brookview this winter:
Fattyshack—Brookview Grill will become the “Fattyshack” each winter, ready to serve the cocktails, burgers (including the new Fattyburger), and menu options customers have come to expect, says Ben Disch, Brookview Golf manager. It will generally be open Thursdays through Sundays and on school holidays (see schedule and hours of operation).
Fat Tire Biking—For the second year, Brookview will offer fat bike rentals for use on the winter trails. Fat bikes are rented in two-hour increments for $25 and come with a bike helmet (required), a small storage bag, and lights for after-dark trail use. A waiver is required for all bike rentals (parent/guardian signature required for those under age 18), as is a credit card hold until the bike is returned. Rentals are available during winter Fattyshack hours. Call 763-512-2305 for reservations.
A winter trail grand opening was scheduled for Dec 11, though delayed until proper snowfall, and the Brookview Meltdown Fat Bike Snow Race is set for Jan 16.
Disc Golf—New this winter is disc golf on Brookview’s 18-hole course. Disc golf works like regular golf, but instead of hitting a ball into a hole, players throw specially-designed discs into chain baskets, counting up the number of throws it takes to get from the launch point to the basket.
Gotta Go Gotta Throw, a Golden Valley disc golf company, designed the course and is providing the equipment for this free activity. The Brookview Disc Golf Course will be open seven days a week beginning Nov 30. No discs? No problem. Rent them during Fattyshack hours for $6 a bundle.
