Red Wing has, “a beautiful and quaint small river feel with a lot to do and a lot to see,” says Brittany O’Neill, director of sales and events for Red Wing Golf Course. “Red Wing provides a great change of scenery with something for everyone. Hiking, biking, shopping, dining and, of course, golf!” 

This quaint feeling for the city nestled in the bluffs has been enhanced. The 100-year-old Red Wing Golf Course has recently received a two-million-dollar renovation. This includes updating The Historic Walsh House, located next to the 18th hole, and doubling the space of the clubhouse building, including the forthcoming addition of The Sky Room.  

Additionally, the course is now open to more guests as new management has made the once private course an open attraction for the public.  

The Victorian-era Walsh House was constructed in the late 1800s and can accommodate up to 10 people with its four beds, five baths, three fireplaces, and now, a renovated kitchen.

“You get a great view from the backyard, from the wraparound porch and sliding door window in the dining room,” says O’Neill. “Revitalizing and refurbishing the house was a fun project, and we are so happy that the house has been restored to its former glory, along with great new updates and amenities.” 

Walsh House guests can bring their own food and beverages for their stay, using the renovated kitchen to cook, or they can walk 1-2 minutes to the clubhouse and the updated Nineteen Bar and Grill, which is now equipped with a full-service kitchen and can seat up to 90 people, with additional seating outside. 

O’Neill sees the Walsh House as an ideal venue for bridal parties or a group of friends. 

The revamped Sky Room, Red Wing Golf Course's event center, is set to open in October 2019. The venue has a panoramic view of the surrounding bluffs, a large skylight and a 2,000-square-foot wraparound deck. Amenity additions to the Sky Room include seating for 300 people, a full catering menu, two bars and a bridal suite. 

“Summer golf season is a great time to come, and our 18-hole public golf course is in terrific shape," says O’Neill. “But fall foliage is truly impressive in bluff country, so we think it will be a popular destination then as well.” 

Bill Von Bank, vice president of marketing and communications for Experience Rochester Minnesota Convention & Visitors Bureau and Mayo Civic Center, knows how to make a luscious pie. On summer and fall weekends, he travels to Minnesota farmers markets as Bill the Pie Guy, selling his homemade apple, blueberry, mixed berry, strawberry, rhubarb, peach, and pecan pies to hungry marketgoers—and donating the profits to hunger-relief organizations.
