Since 2018, golf fans around the Sioux Empire gather for the Sanford International tournament at the Minnehaha Country Club. This prestigious golf event showcases Sioux Falls and features some of the greatest golfers to ever play the game.

In 2021, fans of the tournament were disappointed to learn the PGA Champions Tour may not be held in Sioux Falls after the 2024 Sanford International. But here's some good news for avid golf fans! An exciting new agreement was reached on Tuesday, June 13th that extends the Sanford International through 2027.

The Sanford International and the Minnehaha Country Club Board of Directors reached an agreement on a three-year extension to keep the tournament in Sioux Falls at Minnehaha Country Club. Our news partners at Dakota News Now had a chance to talk with the Tournament Director of the Sanford International Davis Trosin about the new deal. Davis says this is fantastic news for everyone involved, including the players of the tournament. The professional golfers at the Sanford International just fall in love with the City of Sioux Falls:

“This is great news for the community of Sioux Falls and our incredible partners. We appreciate Minnehaha Country Club and its board of directors for collaborating on a deal that is beneficial to both parties and want to thank MCC Members for supporting this new, three-year extension. I also want to thank the leadership of our title sponsor, Sanford Health, for their commitment to keeping our tournament in Sioux Falls through 2027. The TOUR professionals love coming here to play a championship-level golf course and feel the unparalleled support of our community, as is evidenced by our top player field each year. All of these elements work together to continue to make the Sanford International one of the best events on the PGA TOUR Champions schedule.”
