Remember when we had long winter days with cold temperatures and piles of snow on our driveways? Well, looks like Jack Frost has left the Sioux Empire and Heat Miser is making himself comfortable for the summer months ahead.

Since golf courses are opening, it won't be long now until professional golfers from across the country will be in the Sioux Empire to compete in a series of organized tournaments in the Upper Midwest known as The Dakotas Tour. It’s a professional golf tour played in parts of South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and North Dakota.  There are over 15 events during the season’s tour.  It typically starts in the middle of June and runs through the month of August. It's a great tour for professionals and even amateurs!
