Golf Course Closing

Rapid City golf course closes indefinitely


The Associated Press - July 30, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D. - A nine-hole golf course in southeast Rapid City that was run by the local YMCA has closed.

Rapid City YMCA leader Roger Gallimore says the course was "a great tool for building character" but operating costs became too great of a burden. The YMCA has seen its operating losses grow annually since 2007.

Gallimore says the YMCA spent about $60,000 more maintaining the course than it recouped in course fees last year.

Parks Division Manager Scott Anderson says officials are in the early stages of identifying uses for the property. A group of disc golfers attended a Parks and Recreation advisory board meeting in March to request the creation of a disc golf course, according to meeting minutes.
