Forget Tampa Bay... golfing is going great at Sioux Falls

  • Print

IT'S hard to believe in the middle of winter, but the greens at one U.S. golf course not so far away are still, well, green.

Starting today and lasting through Friday, the Elmwood Golf Course in Sioux Falls, S.D., will be open for business -- and course president Tom Jansa said he hopes to see some Canadian golfers make the trip to what he calls a top-notch course during a typical non-golfing month.

"We get a fair amount of interest in the spring from your neck of the woods," Jansa said. "There might be guys up there that get cabin fever and golfers in particular."

This is only the second time in Jansa's 25 years that the course has been open in January. But with record-breaking winter temperatures topping about 16 C at Sioux Falls, the grounds are in great shape and the carts are buzzing, Jansa said.

He calls it a "unique opportunity" to play some golf in the area this winter. The course is about an eight-hour drive south of Winnipeg. Tee times can be reserved by calling 605-367-7092.
