In 1893, the first round of golf ever played in Minnesota was here at Town & Country Club.
For over 110 years, golfers have been challenged by our tight, rolling fairways and demanding greens, classifying us as a true “shot-makers” golf course. Town & Country provides our membership with many opportunities to enjoy golf from the Spring Classic to Fall Festival, there are events and leagues to suit all players and ability levels. The Junior Golf Program at Town & Country has grown into one of the best in the Twin Cities, offering a variety of clinics and leagues in both competitive and noncompetitive formats. The Golf Operation is under the direction of PGA Golf Professional, Tom Skoglund. He and his staff strive to deliver a first-class golfing experience to every member and guest. His team offers individual and group instructional programs, oversees T&C’s caddie program, and manages one of the top Golf Shops in Minnesota.
