MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — If you would like to escape this cold winter weather for awhile and dream about spring, the U.S. Bank Skyway Open is for you, and, you don’t have to be a golfer to take part.

It’s more like putt-putt golf, indoors. There are 18 holes set up in City Center, the IDS Crystal Court and Gaviidae Common.

Designers from local companies created each one.

At the Retro Drinko hole, the golf ball has to make its way around all kinds of Minnesota brewed beers and a spilled beer mug.

At the Ice Hole, you cast your golf ball into the Ice Box and then try to hit the ball in the hole. If you’re good, you can deflate the Metrodome again. Your golf ball has to pass through Mall of America Field, but unlike the Metrodome, this roof inflates quick and easy.

All proceeds from the Skyway Open benefit children.

“This year we are making even more profit than we made last year for the Boys and Girls Clubs, so that we can keep good places for kids to go after school,” said one organizer.

The course is open until 9 p.m. Friday. Saturday is family day so it’s only $5 per child. Click here for more information.
