Town and Country Club of Saint Paul

Saint Paul, Minnesota - Pen and Ink - 2012

Located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River minutes from both downtown Saint Paul and Minneapolis Town and Country Club was the first country club in Minnesota. Today, this ‘country club’ is in the heart of the Twin Cities metropolitan area, but in 1890, it was considered in the far reaches of Saint Paul. The first round of golf in Minnesota was played at the Town & Country Club of Saint Paul in 1893. Golf began here as an afterthought - George McCree, a transplanted Scot, who had migrated to Minnesota from Canada was familiar with the game of golf. According to an early member “I took McCree out to the Club with my lawn mower in the back of my roadster to help lay out the course." Using an old driver and a twenty-five cent gutta percha ball, after a couple shots, McCree marked a spot with a stake - “This is the first hole." In this fashion, the first five holes were laid out. Town & Country Club's golf course is the 2nd oldest golf course in the United States still being played on its original land - behind only Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in New York.
