History

Interlachen has a rich history, an enjoyable present and the promise of a fantastic future. It was founded in 1909 when enthusiastic golfers decided to pool their money to save the 9-hole course that was supposed to be turned into a housing development. They decided to choose land that could instead hold an 18-hole course and chose a spot in Edina just 15 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis, easily accessible by streetcar.

The clubhouse was added in 1910 to include tennis, horseback riding and trapshooting. Interlachen opened in 1911 with over 50 members playing the nine holes that were ready, a gala later in the evening and tours of the clubhouse. The first tournament was hosted in 1913. The course was redesigned by Donald Ross in 1919 and has remained an timeless design ever since.
