Managing Director Doug Tenpas

Doug brings many years of experience in business management and operations along with his love of golf to the Minnesota Golf Academy.

He is responsible for the overall management and day to day operations of the Academy. He believes that golf should be fun and enjoyable for every level of player from beginner to advanced. As an amateur player he has felt there was a need in Minneapolis for a year round golf facility where people of all ages could work on all aspects of their game regardless of the time of year or weather. He also understands that by combining the best teaching technology with the top PGA Instructors everyone can learn to play golf without taking lesson after lesson. He is happy to be working in Eden Prairie and being active in the community once again.

He served as Mayor of Eden Prairie from 1990 to 1994 and has always had a strong connection with the City. His two primary goals are to ensure that everyone who visits and practices at the Academy has fun and becomes a better golfer. He loves to hear about your golf stories and your progress so do not be shy about sharing both with him.
