In the summer of 1905, several businessmen played a round of golf at primitive nine-hole course on the then-eastern edge of Sioux Falls. The men decided to create a private member-owned golf club with a small shack serving as clubhouse. They named it Minnehaha Country Club.
Since that early golf outing, much has changed. In 1914, the Club picked up its stakes and relocated to land west of the city, eventually creating a superb 18-hole course. The course is located adjacent to Sherman Park, with the Sioux River in its midst, Minnehaha creates an oasis of green in the City of Sioux Falls.
The Minnehaha Country Club Golf Course plays to a par of 71 and a maximum distance of 6,437 yards. The course rating is 71.3 and the slope rating is 132.

Currently being redesigned by Graham Marsh. Should be one of the best in the Midwest. There will be some visually elegant and highly challenging changes when it re-opens in Spring 2011.

This is a classic 80+ year old course, short by modern standards but still a challange. Great greens and superb conditions.

Fantastic greens and a challenging layout. Don't let the lack of length fool you. Three musts....1) keep it in the fairway 2) don't be above the hole and 3) play it if you get a chance!
