Penny Golf Scramble: What to do in Red Wing

written by | Christina DeVries

Red Wing Minnesota has been a wonderful host for our golf scramble over the past 26 years. As you find folks for your scrambles and plan your summers, here are a few other things to explore in or around Red Wing. Golf registration and sponsorship opportunities are now open [register here] and we hope to see you all on June 20th!


Interested in spending a long weekend in Red Wing after the golf scramble? Extend your stay at the St. James Hotel. They’ve remodeled the veranda overlooking the river and it will reopen in May.

Still need to get in some steps after the scramble? Red Wing has multiple trails for all levels of hikers. The 340 foot Barn Bluff has beautiful river and Red Wing views that will help get in those steps beyond the 18 holes. The Frontenac State Park, John Rich Park and Cannon Valley Trail are all nearby.

This year at the scramble there will be mulligans, a growler grab and wine wall, and of course the opportunity to donate to the Penny Programs at dinner. If you want to make an investment in the local economy on your way out, the Red Wing Stoneware and Pottery and Red Wing Shoes flagship store is in the center of town.

If you have a pre or post golf craving for either Mexican food or Italian food, Christina Melecio family, our Winona 2018-2019 Board Member, own Lock and Dam Eatery in Hasting, MN. Stop by and say hello!


Students United has hosted our Golf Scramble at Mississippi National Links for the last four years. Nathan Gale, the Golf Pro, not only helps us present a wonderful event, he gives golf lessons. Tee up for some training or another round of golf!
