Club History

edinburgh

Saint Andrews Club and Edinburgh USA have a 27 year history of award-winning golf along with a rich tradition of member camaraderie, competition and friendship. From its launch in 1987 the golf course and private member club have been a strong community asset. From the LPGA to USGA, Edinburgh USA’s name carries national attention and admiration. The golf course has held every “golf major” in the state while its fairways have been graced by major championship winners from the PGA Tour.

Saint Andrews Club Hall of Fame serves as a long standing honor for those distinguished members who have gone above and beyond to make our golf club what it is today. Our Scottish-style clubhouse stands as the backdrop to the neighborhood while providing quality dining and first class events from weddings to company parties. As an annual host to Minnesota’s premier sports teams, charity tournaments and corporate events, Edinburgh USA and Saint Andrews Club have the experience and passion to exceed your expectations.

A small Board of Directors works in conjunction with the SAC Golf Director to review all club events, policies, major tournaments, social functions and more. The Board meets once per month and is also made up of several small committees, including the tournament, social and ambassador committees.

We welcome you to experience the Twin Cities finest public golf course and private golf club.

Robert Trent Jones II Golf Course Architects and 2014 Renovation

In 2014 Edinburgh USA underwent a $2 million renovation by Robert Trent Jones II Golf Course Architects (RTJ2) along with Duininck Golf. The renovation included all bunkers and short game areas, two new greens, several tee boxes, a new practice putting green, and driving range tee. RTJ2 is a global leader and innovator in all aspects of golf course design, from master planning to design implementation. When built in 1987, Golf Magazine ranked Edinburgh USA as the #2 Best New Public Golf Course in America. Design expert, Bruce Charlton personally managed the 2014 renovation at Edinburgh USA and the reviews have been nothing short of outstanding. Mr. Charlton was the lead designer for the 2015 US Open venue, Chambers Bay in Washington state.
