Golf Events

Our community of golfers enjoys competing in several club tournaments each year.

To mark the beginning and end of the golf season, the Opening Stag and Artic Close allow members to play in an intra-club event involving two-person teams in medal play competition.  During the season, the Member-Member Tournament attracts a full field for a very compelling, competitive 27-hole event that’s broken into three different 9-hole formats. In addition, the Club Championship weekend is a consistent highlight of every golf season. Players participate in their own handicap group, making the competition tight and intense. Late in the day, when the Championship Flight is concluding, a large gallery follows the contenders, which adds drama and suspense to the tournament.

The most highly-anticipated event is the annual Minneapolis Golf Club Invitational—a three-day affair that allows each attending member to invite one guest.  We kick it off on Thursday with an 18-hole competitive practice round followed by an outdoor cocktail party. Friday begins with each team playing three nine hole matches within their respective flights and concludes with an open bar and dinner.  Match play continues on Saturday with teams playing their final two matches. Flight winners qualify for an exciting, nerve racking Shoot-Out to determine our Invitational Champions. A magnificent dinner and dance are held on Saturday night to celebrate and conclude the week. The Invitational is an unmatched experience that our Members and Guests never forget.
