High-level Mini Golf As U.S. Bank Hosts Skyway Open For Charity

The world’s only skyway based mini-golf event took place this weekend in downtown Minneapolis.

For the seventh year, the downtown above ground hamster tunnel was host to the U.S. Bank Skyway Open, a charity miniature golf tournament running through many parts of the skyway system. This year the Skyway Open expanded to three days to accommodate families who preferred to play during the less-crowded weekends.

The course includes 18 holes with a variety of challenges as it weaves through several buildings of the Minneapolis skyway system. Local architects and designers built this year’s course with the goal to image Minneapolis 12 years from now.

It remains to be seen if the futurist designers had a decent handle of what Minneapolis will look like in 2025 but in the meantime the tournament is doing what it can to enhance the prospects of cities next generation with all proceeds going the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities.
