Although Blaine, MN has a lot to offer its residents, the star of the show is most definitely the Tournament Players Club golf course, known as TPC by locals. With remarkable golf, outstanding amenities and an array of membership plans, TPC is the pride of Blaine.
The TPC, home of the Champion Tour’s 3M Championship, was designed by Arnold Palmer under consultation with Tom Lehman, and encompasses 235 acres of gorgeous Minnesota countryside.
Although the TPC is on the PGA Tour and is challenging for even the world’s best golfers, the par-72, 7,164-yard course doesn’t leave the rest of us in the dust. TPC offers six sets of tees at each hole so that golfers at various skill levels can still enjoy the course.
It’s not all About Golf
Part of TPC’s amazing beauty is the 27 water features that dot the course. These bodies compose sixty acres of water, 14 of which are protected wetlands. In fact, TPC Twin Cities is an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary. Water and resource conservation, integrated pest management and outreach education are all parts of the TPC’s operations.
Ah, the Amenities
Arriving at the TCP for a round of golf brings you to the clubhouse, a 30,000 square foot facility that houses both casual and fine dining areas, a pro shop, locker rooms and banquet rooms.
TPC also offers a junior golf program and training camp for the younger set.
A Good Neighbor
TPC Twin Cities undertakes a number of projects aimed toward giving back, both on a national level and to the city of Blaine. One of these projects is Birdies for the Brave, a nationwide charity tournament that raises money for our troops and their families. Additionally, several events are held each year to raise money for local Blaine charities.
The TPC offers several levels of membership. One level is included with the purchase of a home in select neighborhoods surrounding the golf course. The TPC promises that no member will ever be assessed for any improvements to the golf course or clubhouse. If golf course living is your dream, you’ll find no shortage of amazing homes in and around the TPC. From condos to townhomes to single-family residences, living in Blaine puts you within steps of one of the country’s most breathtaking golf courses.
