The newly-renovated Canyon 9 golf course at Superior National in Lutsen opened for play on Thursday.

It was the last phase of a $4.5 million improvement plan to enhance the 27-hole course. Superior National opened in 1992 and is owned by the Cook County/Grand Marais Economic Development Association.

Canyon 9 is the second golf course redevelopment project at Lutsen. In 2014, work began on the River 9 course, which was completed in 2016. A grand opening at the growing recreational complex is scheduled for next spring.
