The Minneapolis Downtown Council scored a hole-in-one with an event so unique and fun that people of all ages participated. The 10th Annual Skyway Open Golf Tournament featured an innovative yet challenging miniature golf course designed by local architects and contractors throughout a portion of downtown Minneapolis’ skyway system. This year’s design theme was “Minneapolis: America’s Most Livable City” and took place Feb. 26-28.

“When you have [the skyway] that is so internationally unique, it’s great to celebrate it with fun activities,” says Leah Wong, vice president of events and marketing, Minneapolis Downtown Council. “The Skyway Open not only accentuates our appreciation how our downtown buildings and community connect together, but it also offers a chance to embrace two other elements that are very Minnesotan: winter and golf.”

The Skyway Open was a great opportunity for family time or colleagues to network while also benefiting the Minneapolis Downtown Council’s Intersections: Downtown 2025 Plan goal to end street homelessness.

Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like brunch? Me neither—and I doubt I ever will. It’s hard not to love a two-meals-for-one situation, especially one that incorporates the best meal (breakfast, of course), and the most important one, as we all learned growing up. Throw in a late-morning reverie and some heartier lunchtime fare, and you’ve got a recipe for human comfort.
