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 regrassing 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 playability.
Additional improvements included construction of a 5-hole par 3 course, new course signage and the planting of new trees.
