Wirth Golf Club is one of the oldest public courses in the state. The front nine is beautifully set around Bassett Creek with a few man-made lagoons to heighten the challenge. It also offers several scenic views of the Minneapolis downtown skyline. The back nine offers completely different challenges with its rolling hills and mature trees and is a good test of one's golfing skills.
The clubhouse is modeled after a Swiss Chalet and is rather unique in itself. The lower level serves as the clubhouse while the upper level is reserved for rentals such as wedding receptions and various other parties of 100 people or less.
Wirth Golf Course offers a nine-hole Par 3 course also set among the mature trees and rolling hills of the Theodore Wirth Park area. The Par 3 course is located just down the road at 1325 Wirth Parkway.
The Fireplace Room has a vaulted ceiling, large wood burning fireplace and the feeling of a rustic lodge. For available dates, rental rates and more information contact our Event Consultant Ellen Kosmoski at 612-230-6427 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
