History

The Minikahda Club was founded November 11, 1898. Founders and charter officers were Martin Koon, William Edgar, Walter Tiffany, and Harry Thayer, among others. The name Minikahda is a combination of two Indian words meaning "by the side of" and "water." The emblem of the club is a shield carried by Swift Dog, a Dakota chief. The purpose of the club "shall be the conducting of a club or society for the purpose of social enjoyment, mental and physical culture, and the renting, leasing, building or otherwise acquiring and owning a club house." Activities of the club included tennis, golf, trap and skeet shooting, swimming and platform tennis. Some of the events held at Minikahda were the National Amateur Tournament in August 1927 and the Walker Cup tournament in August 1957. Robert Jones, Charles (Chick) Evans, and local player Patty Berg distinguished themselves at Minikahda golf events.
