The Twin Cities Championship is a competitive golf tournament that raises money for our selected charity, the Fairway Foundation. This organization, created by the Minnesota Golf Association and the Minnesota Section of the PGA, introduces inner-city youth to golf and the benefits that come with the game. Foundation players who complete the program receive scholarships for post-high school education.
Men’s Championship: This division will play a 36-hole competition with the first day, June 24 at Theodore Wirth Golf Course and the second day, June 25 at Hastings Golf Club. The Champion will be the player with the lowest total gross score for 36 holes. Ties for first place will be played off immediately, hole by hole, until a Champion is determined.
Players may walk and carry their own bag, use a pull/push cart (even if motorized) or use a caddie. Motorized carts are not permitted.
