Set in the rugged beauty of Minnesota's northwoods, Giants Ridge, located in Biwabik, Minn., is a first-class, four season family-oriented resort owned by IRRRB. The agency bought the facility in 1984 to accomplish four goals: create economic development; provide recreational facilities to enhance the quality of life for people of the Iron Range; attract private sector development; and, create a year-round destination resort.
At Giants Ridge summer is filled with outdoor recreation and activity. Giants Ridge features two nationally-recognized 18-hole championship caliber golf courses and a ski resort ranked number one in Minnesota. The Legend at Giants Ridge and The Quarry at Giants Ridge are ranked among Minnesota's best golf courses. The Quarry was recently cited as "The Best Golf of the 21st Century" by Golf Digest writer Ron Whitten. Tour the spectacular courses online and you'll know why Giants Ridge was named among the "Top Six Golf Destinations in the World" by GolfWorld magazine.
Giants Ridge also has one of Minnesota’s best disc golf courses. Covering over 80 acres and up to 10,000 feet (champion position) of fairway distance, the course is one of the world's largest. The 18-hole mountain course has dual concrete tees and multiple pin placements.
For even more summer fun, the Giants Ridge Rental Shop provides canoe, kayak, and bike rentals. Giants Ridge also is a hub for the nationally-acclaimed Mesabi Trail -- a 115-mile paved bike trail that winds through 25 Iron Range communities.
