Austad's, Sanford team up to improve golfers' game

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - Sanford Golf and Austad's Golf have unveiled a partnership that will help golfers improve their game.

Certified club fitters will walk golfers through the process of finding the right club depending on their height, weight and experience.

This is all leading up to the opening of Sanford's new interactive driving range in Sioux Falls.

"I like to play golf, but there are a lot of days that I don't have four hours, or maybe even three hours," President of Sanford Sports Kevin Lampe said. "What you can do in this new environment is maybe come out during your lunch hour and hit balls for an hour, and run downstairs and have Dave or Ryan tweak the club adjustment."

Great Shots, the 54,000 square-foot golf facility, is scheduled to open late next year at the Sanford Sports Complex.

Sioux Falls will also be the new home of the Great Plains Golf Expo coming up in February.
