Located in southern Sioux Falls, the Prairie Green Golf Course is the best of three terrific public layouts that are operated by Landscapes Golf Management on behalf of the Sioux Falls City Council. Elmwood is a 27-hole facility and Kuehn Park is a 9-holer, while Prairie Green is a mid-1990s 18-hole layout designed by Dick Nugent.
Extending to 7,179 yards from the back markers, the course at Prairie Green is laid out in two distinct circuits, with the front nine holes clustered together in one large compartment, then the back nine routed in a large circle around housing to the north of the clubhouse, with an underpass connecting the two properties.
The signature hole is the 566-yard 15th, which doglegs left from the tee to a peninsula green that juts out into a small lake. Bunkers pinch the fairway on both sides of the landing area then water threatens the approach to the green down the right hand side, with the hole narrowing towards the putting surface.
