Elmwood Golf Course 18 Holes OPEN During Renovation Project
Elmwood is one of the three golf courses in Sioux Falls’ nationally accredited park system and is managed by Dakota Golf Management. Elmwood will receive new upgrades to irrigation, drainage, and grassing during a multi-year renovation, while maintaining the integrity and feel of the current courses. The project will take three seasons to complete. Elmwood will always have 18 holes open during each phase of the project
- Phase 1 of the project closed the east nine during the Fall of 2013.
- Phase 2 will begin fall 2014 with the construction on the north nine, along with construction on three of the five holes on the junior course.
- Phase 3 is scheduled to begin fall 2015 on the west nine, in addition to construction of a newly relocated junior course. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2016, when Elmwood will resume operating as a 27-hole facility.
Elmwood Golf Course
The area's most popular course, Elmwood's 27 holes consist of two great courses, both challenging, fun and easy to walk. Our championship 18-hole layout is a classic parkland course, featuring tree-lined fairways, and large, well-bunkered, undulating greens. The East 9, our other regulation 9 hole course that does not require a tee time, is the best value in the region with green fees under $15.
You'll also enjoy the great practice greens and driving range facilities.
Kuehn Park Golf Course
The best executive course in the area, Kuehn Park features a par 30 course that’s fast and fun for everyone. It is a great course for golfers of all abilities, but especially appealing to juniors, seniors and beginners. Excellent driving range and practice greens are also available.
Prairie Green Golf Course
A prairie treasure, Prairie Green was rated one of Golf Digest’s Best New Affordable Courses in 1996 and is currently the highest rated public course in the region. A beautiful prairie links style course designed by Dick Nugent, at Prairie Green you will experience generous fairways, stunning prairie wetlands, and well-bunkered greens.
Challenging from the back tees but playable for all, the course features four sets of tees, unbelievably affordable fees and the glorious big skies and wide open spaces of the prairie.
