The City of Sioux Falls flagship course, Elmwood Golf Course, is a 27-hole parkland-style golf course with tree lined fairways, domed greens and smaller more classic-style bunkering.
In 2013, the Sioux Falls City Council and the Federal Aviation Administration approved plans and a joint-funding agreement for a million dollar renovation of Elmwood Golf Course. The project included reconstruction and re-grassing of all tees, greens and fairways as well as new irrigation, new maintenance facilities and expansion of the driving range and practice facilities. Proposed improvements were directed at improving course drainage and improving play-ability. Additional improvements included the construction of a 5-hole par 3 course, new course signage and the planting of new trees.
Signature Hole: Hole #16 at Elmwood is one of the most beautiful and testing holes in the area. Playing into the prevailing wind, drives will have to be well struck to get through the chute of trees and into the fairway. The bunkers on the left make the approach shot to this elevated green very deceiving.
