Priority Pass Lounge Review – MSP PGA, Minneapolis, MN (MSP)

Priority Pass is adding non-traditional options like Minute Suites and restaurants to its worldwide network of more than 1,000 airport lounges.

This was my second visit to one of these new locations.  I  previously reported on my visit to Timberline Steaks & Grille, a recent Priority Pass addition at Denver, CO (DEN).  Priority Pass Lounge Review – Timberline Steaks & Grille, Denver, CO (DEN)

The MSP PGA “lounge” is located inside security at the Lindbergh Terminal, Terminal 1.  After security proceed to the far right side of the mall.  The lounge is located above Ike’s and next to the Escape lounge.20170909_185757_resized

The major feature of MSP PGA is golf.  It has all the attributes of a pro shop plus there are opportunities to get in a little practice, have a club fitting, or take a lesson with a PGA pro.

The room with the putting green also has TVs, comfortable seating and a bar.20170909_190031_resized20170909_163626_resized

MSP PGA is different than other restaurants in Priority Pass because it only provides a $15 credit per eligible guest rather than a credit of $28.

Final Thoughts

If you like golf and have an hour or two to kill at MSP, MSP PGA could be a good destination.  The $15 credit for Priority Pass members is better than nothing but seems really cheap compared to the $28 credit at other restaurants in the Priority Pass system.  Those who have the American Express Platinum card may be better off going to the Escape lounge next door.   A review of that lounge is next.
