Golf course is ready to open after renovations

Posted:

In 2004 the CIty of Rapid CIty was almost forced to close the Lacroix golf course. That's when the YMCA decided to partner with the city and make it a place children from the area could go and play.

By taking over operations while the city still covered water costs the course was able to reopen.

The YMCA Lacroix golf course had been under renovation for the last three years but is now finished and ready to be used.

Renovations include new irrigation, a new drainage system, new tee boxes, as well as new bunkers.

At tonight's Rapid City Council meeting YMCA Director Roger Gallimore said the renovations were put into place to make more efficient use of water as well as make the course enjoyable to those that use it.

Gallimore says, "With the renovation of this course what this did was completely renovate irrigation, completely redo the drainage, so the way we use water is much better, the course is going to be much better covered. The tee boxes are now level and now there is more fun features that have been added to the course".

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony June 11th at 11:30 to celebrate the renovations.
