IOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) – Despite a slow start for golf this spring, numbers have fully rebounded at city courses.
Justin Arlt, Sioux Falls Golf market manager, and Tory Miedema, park development specialist with Sioux Falls Parks & Recreation, both spoke.
This spring was a slow start for golf, but Arlt says golf has fully rebounded — city courses are seeing a record number of golfers, partly due to a lot of new faces getting started with golf in the city.
Better playing services and a broader range of events have contributed to strong numbers, as well.
Additionally, over 24 corporate outings this year raised over a quarter of a million dollars for charities.
Much has been done to improve conditions in city golfing spaces, such as renovating the irrigation pond at Elmwood and adding synthetic turf to the practice areas at Kuehn Park.
