This article has been like a quasi famous Cheap Trick song title – A Long Time Coming.
The concept of this column was to highlight the coming of age of one Tim “Lumpy” Herron.
Wouldn’t it be great to make an investment that continues to pay dividends 100 years later? In 1917, and then again in 1929, the City of St. Paul invested in two new golf courses, one next to Lake Phalen and one by Como Lake.
The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community purchased Lone Pine Golf Course in 2002 and hired Garrett Gill and Paul Miller to not only rebuild, but also to rebrand it as The Meadows at Mystic Lake, which opened in 2005.
The third annual PGA REACH Minnesota’s 100 Holes for HOPE and Heroes charity event was held Thursday, June 18 at Mount Frontenac Golf Course in Frontenac, Minn.
