DAKOTA DUNES, SD – Rebuilding and fixing is the goal at the Dakota Dunes Golf Course, one of many places nearly destroyed when the Missouri River flooded this summer.
As the Dunes tries to get the course back, it’s a balancing act between golf and flood protection.
When the Dakota Dunes Country Club opened back up in September, there were a few things missing on that Arnold Palmer designed course, like holes 17 and 18.
“This isn’t something you see every day and it is a bit of a unique challenge,” says Brandon Johnson, a Senior Design Architect with the Arnold Palmer Design Company.
