New private golf club planned in eastern South Dakota
Sioux Falls’ first new private golf club in more than 60 years is being planned on the northeast side of town just outside the city limits.
Mapleton Golf Club would encompass 210 acres northeast of interstates 229 and 90, across from the South Dakota Veterans Cemetery and along Slip Up Creek, Sioux Falls.Business reported this week.
It’s being developed by Landscapes Unlimited, which has worked on more than 2,500 golf course construction projects, including Sutton Bay in central South Dakota.
Locally, a group of founding owners is forming to support the construction of the club, led by Danny Amundson, a former standout high school and college golfer whose late father, Mark, was the visionary and founding partner behind Sutton Bay.
Amundson is vice president of KWB Hotel Partners LLC. He once served as director of membership for Sutton Bay.
“We kept watching the growth of Sioux Falls and what’s happened with the two private country clubs in terms of demand for access,” Amundson said. “And part of it is the desire to do something fun and create a legacy project that is golf-oriented.”
