OUR MISSION: We are committed to the growth of golf in South Dakota and dedicated to serving our members to advance the profession.
Message from Our President
As we turn the calendar from March to April, we say goodbye to winter and look ahead to warmer weather. Many golf courses are either already open for the year or will be in the coming weeks. There have been some varying reports of winter damage, mainly due to desiccation from the open winter. If you are dealing with this, be sure to have open and honest communication with your club about the recuperation process. Also, reach out to your peers for help if needed. If you’ve been in the turf management industry for any amount of time you have likely dealt with winter damage. Time and patience are key, things will eventually come back.
The Rounds 4 Research auction will be taking place at the end of April. Please consider donating a round to this, the money used goes to funding for research projects or scholarships for college students. It is a very easy application process, and you can tailor the donation to whatever fits your club. We have been close in the past, but we are really trying to break the $10,000 mark this year!!
Kyle Rausch, CGCS
