Welcome To Our Golf Course

You will love the Lakes Golf Course!
for more than the Beautiful Scenery, Challenging Layout, and the Course Conditions, but that’s a great start!

This beautiful 9-Hole course features plush, rolling fairways that reward creativity, classic greens that test execution and subtle elevation changes that greatly enhance the panoramic view of both, Round Lake and Lake Madison. The Lakes Golf Course has something to offer every level of golfer, from the beginner to the more seasoned pro.

SD Golf Course Community,
As you may be aware, Governor Noem issued an Executive Order yesterday putting additional restrictions on business activity in the state.
Any “enclosed retail business that promotes public gatherings” within the State of South Dakota should:
  • Suspend or modify business practices as recommended by CDC guidance that involve ten or more people to be in an enclosed space where physical separation of at least six feet is not possible.
  • Continue offering or consider offering business models that do not involve public gatherings, including takeout, delivery, drive-through, curb-side service, off-site services, social distancing models, or other innovative business practices that do not involve public gatherings in an enclosed space.
  • Consider business arrangements and innovative ideas intended to support the critical infrastructure sectors, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security.
For the purpose of these sections, an “enclosed retail business that promotes public gatherings” means any enclosed facility operating as a bar, restaurant, brewery, cafe, casino, coffee shop, recreational or athletic facility, health club, or entertainment venue.
We want to do everything we can to keep our golf courses open and make them a safe and viable recreation and wellness option during this public health crisis. We have worked together with the South Dakota Golf Course Superintendents Association to contact the Governor to let her know that the golf course industry in the state is taking proactive measures to ensure that our operations are in compliance with all public health directives.

I cannot stress this point enough. If we want to keep our courses open and safe, we ALL need to work to ensure that every course has a plan in place to be in full compliance with the Governor's Executive Order and directives from local authorities. And beyond that, we need to educate our golfers on the need to comply with course policies while on the course. If there are reports of courses or golfers not complying, it will be more difficult to make the case to keep courses open and golfers playing.
