GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.-It's an event that starts to get us all thinking about golf. Even if it is indoors and mini-golf. It's the 2014 U.S. Bank Skyway Open, February 21 -23, 2014. The world's only skyway-based miniature golf event, hosted by the Downtown Network and benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities, is in its eighth year.
The personalities of Minneapolis neighborhoods are featured as it is called "Minneapolis Neighborhoods -- Putt the City."
Sam Maguire, Skyway Open Chairperson (Associate at Jones Lang LaSalle) and Matt Johnson, President of Welsh Architecture joined KARE 11 News @ 4 to share more about the event.
Welsh Architecture also designed the featured hole that was brought to the KARE studios.
Local architects and designers are challenged to create golf holes that capture the flavor of any of the city's unique communities.
This year, 19 newly designed miniature golf holes will bring fun and excitement to the Skyway System of Minneapolis, including for the first time, architecture and design students from The Art Institutes, Dunwoody College of Technology and the University of Minnesota which will be featured in the IDS Center Crystal Court.
