Landscapes Unlimited Is Taking Golf to the Next Level in Sioux Falls
Sioux Falls’ nationally accredited park system includes three municipal golf courses: Elmwood, Kuehn Park, and Prairie Green, and a new golf course management company is taking them to the next level. Landscapes Management Company, a division of Landscapes Unlimited, took over operations in January.
“We are thrilled about the progress Landscapes has made with their transition as our new golf course management company. They have many exciting changes in store for members and guests that will provide an enhanced golfing experience at our City courses. Golfers will notice and appreciate some very positive changes that Landscapes is making in a variety of ways, and we can’t wait for Landscapes to get into full swing once the weather starts to cooperate,” says Don Kearney, Director of Parks and Recreation.
Landscapes Management Company crews have begun their work taking expert care of the three properties to ensure they are in great shape when the courses fully open this spring. The early focus will be on becoming a part of the golf community by:
• Building upon the prior success of the three courses through enhanced customer service, upgraded kitchen equipment, improved food and beverage options like quesadillas and flatbread pizzas, and a new EZLinks mobile tee time reservation system.
• Acting as stewards of the golf courses by creating programs the players enjoy, reaching out to new customers via special events, and achieving the financial goals set out by the City of Sioux Falls.
• Listening and responding to the needs of the players and delivering the highest level of customer service at each of the three golf courses.
“It is with great pleasure and excitement that I begin a new career journey with the City of Sioux Falls and Landscapes Management Company, and I look forward to the rewarding work ahead,” says Justin Arlt, Market General Manager, Landscapes Management Company. “It will be our goal to produce the best golf experience possible for our Sioux Falls golf community and the golfers that will visit our three outstanding facilities from across the region.”
The future is bright for golf in Sioux Falls and now is the time to be a part of the excitement! Great things are happening at Kuehn Park, Elmwood, and Prairie Green, with annual passes and punch passes currently available via a new user-friendly website, http://www.siouxfallsgolf.com.
