As the home to the 2016 Ryder Cup, Chaska MN combines the best of both worlds -- friendly small town and modern city. Chaska is a southwest suburb of the Minneapolis - St Paul metropolitan area and is quietly nestled along the Minnesota River. Chaska offers a historic downtown, unique shopping, dining, and lodging, and many dynamic attractions, theatres, and outdoor activities that surround the city!
Hazeltine National Golf Club is Chaska’s claim to fame. Set in beautiful natural surroundings—where prairie meets woodland—Hazeltine is home to a championship course, award winning clubhouse, and is host of the prestigious 2016 Ryder Cup Matches. Only a few miles away, the esteemed Chaska Town Course is also considered to be one of the best in the Twin Cities. Designed by renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills, the Chaska Town Course sprawls over 285 acres of oak groves, open prairie and marshlands. Lush bent grass covers the playing area from tee box to green. Chaska Town Course is owned and operated by the City of Chaska.
The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is located within the Chaska city limits. Other natural attractions surround the city for those that value you the outdoors. Trails for hiking and biking, and parks are all easily accessible within the area.
