About Town & Country Club -- Where Minnesota Golf Was Born
As the first "country club" in these parts, Town & Country Club was more of a social organization inspired by the clubs in Saint Paul that were formed as a nucleus of the annual Winter Carnival. A residence on Lake Como was the first clubhouse in 1887. The Club moved to its present home at the Marshall Avenue Bridge on the Mississippi River in 1890. Today, this "country club" is in the heart of the Twin Cities metropolitan area, but in 1890, it was in the boondocks of Saint Paul.

Silent Auction, and prize donations are also needed. Popular items include sports memorabilia, tickets to sporting events, golf packages, wine baskets and gift cards.

A brief history of the Golf Classic
The Engman Golf Classic began in the early 1980's in honor of Bruce Engman, class of 1961. Following Bruce's tragic death, friends and classmates joined together to create a memorial fund with proceeds going to an 11th grade student. Karl Olson '61, Dan Parten '61 and Mark Nesset '61 are excellent resources if you are interested in additional event history.
