Elmwood Golf Course Has Plans For Renovation

Bookmark and Share

In an effort to meet Federal Aviation Administration regulations, next to the Sioux Falls Airport, Elmwood Golf Course will have to make $4 to $5 million worth of renovations.

Monday night, an informational meeting was held at Elmwood to discuss what the next steps will be. In their plans, every hole on the course will be affected. The Championship Course, or the North and West 9, will be mapped out and replaced. However, with the exception of a few holes, it will pretty much look the same.

The East 9 will require the most work, which sits next to the airport. To meet FAA rules, around 200 trees will have to be taken out, therefore many holes will have to be changed.

President of Dakota Golf Management Inc. Tom Jansa said, "Elmwood is a unique facility. We have 27 holes. We have an 18 hole course and a separate 9 hole course. We'll close 9 holes at time so the 18 holes that are open will be unaffected by the construction."

The federal government will foot the bill for 90 percent of the project. The Airport will pay for 5 percent,
and the rest will come from the state. Work will start on the East 9 in the fall and will last all year, then work will begin on the North 9. It's expected to be complete by 2014.

A pubic meeting on the project will be held at the Downtown Library on Tuesday, May 14 at 3:30 p.m. I there are no major concerns, the renovation will move onto the next steps which include going in front of the Parks & Recreation board and the FAA.
