About Us

Founded in 1916, Minneapolis Golf Club is a singular expression of what a pure golf club can be—a classic layout from the Golden Era of course design that remains elegantly relevant in the modern era.

Located just seven miles west of downtown Minneapolis, our historic crown-jewel course has drawn the admiration of generations of golfers for its eminent playability, imaginative layout and supreme walkability, representing perhaps the finest such experience in the Upper Midwest.

A comprehensive multi-million-dollar enhancement replaced every blade of grass on our classic Willie Park Jr./Donald Ross layout. Completed in 2020, the update added several modern improvements including new bent grass tees, fairways, and greens, a state-of-the-art irrigation system, improved drainage systems on the greens, thicker roughs, larger green complexes and inventive hole locations. This approach carefully balances the original design integrity of the course with the evolving demands of modern players.

The MGC golfing experience also features a picturesque short game practice area, convenient driving range, indoor swing simulator, and perhaps most notably an inclusive, active and family-friendly membership who share a passion for golf and welcome players of all ages and abilities.
