The course

TPC Twin Cities is a 7,431-yard, par-71 layout designed by the late Arnold Palmer. The course features water at nearly every turn, with hazards in play on 15 of 18 holes. The venue has rewarded elite iron-play over the past two years and has a high chance of turning into a putting competition.

Here's an overhead glimpse of the course and its resemblance to Florida courses.
