Message from Our President
The annual fall outing was recently completed and what a great time it was. The weather was great and the golf courses didn’t disappoint! A huge thank you to Dick Novak at Arrowhead, Rick Wit at Red Rock and Bill Anderson at The Elks for hosting. I know it is tough to attend some years with staffing issues and such, but the fall outing is really a great time and those who haven’t attended in the past should consider in the future.
Also, congratulations go out to Dick Novak for receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. Dick is retiring this year after 27 years as the superintendent at Arrowhead. There were numerous people who had stories to tell as to how Dick has helped them out in their careers. Congratulations Dick and enjoy retirement!
Things are starting to wind down in the golf industry of South Dakota. As we look forward to winter, and hopefully decent snowcover, be thinking of the spring conference coming up. The 2022 conference will be March 7-9. I have been in contact with speakers, but if any of you have specific topics you would be interested in learning about let me know and I can find someone to come talk on the subject.
