It’s tee time in Sioux Falls – especially if you’re a lady golfer on the Symetra Tour – The Road to the LPGA. For the second year in a row the Tour will bring its slate of 144 talented women to Willow Run Golf Course to compete for a shot at a purse of $210,000 – with the winner taking home $31,500 – and points in the Volvik Race for the Card toward a coveted spot on the pro tour.

The Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge is one of only four 72-hole events on the tour and one of only 23 cities to host the tour. According to the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (CVB), Sioux Falls will realize more than $3 million in economic impact, depending on overall attendance.

The tournament will begin on September 1 with the winner clinching the title on September 4. It will be hosted once again by GreatLIFE Golf & Fitness Club and the Sioux Falls CVB.


Golfers from across the region can enjoy a spectacular view of the fairway action and the LPGA hopefuls, and enjoy a few special events throughout the week of the tour including:

• Free Kids Clinic with Mike Malaska – Tuesday, August 30, Willow Run
• Dan Boever, World Long Drive Champion – Tuesday, August 30, Willow Run Driving Range
• Feherty Live! – Thursday, September 1, Washington Pavilion

To add to the excitement, one ambitious young golfer will have the opportunity to earn a spot in the GreatLIFE Challenge at an open qualifier to be held at Willow Run on August 26. The qualifier is open to all South Dakota female residents and any female college student that attends an accredited in-state college or university. Entries close Monday, August 22. Contact Jason Sudenga, GreatLIFE Director of Golf at 605-940-7344.

The second exemption for the tournament will be Mariah Stackhouse, a recent Stanford grad that has been turning heads on the fairway since she exhibited a talent for the game at age four. She’s the first African American woman to earn a spot in the field at the U.S. Open.

Last year’s winner, Caroline Westrup, finished the tournament with a 12-under 272 total, followed Sweden’s Dani Holmqvist in second place and Italy’s Giulia Molinaro who finished third.


To ensure the success of this weeklong event, sponsors are looking for local volunteers to act as host families and to provide other services throughout the tournament. To learn more about these and other volunteer opportunities or to sign up, visit

Feherty Live! GreatLIFE Members Receive Exclusive Early-Bird Access

The 2nd Annual Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge is just a month away, and we’re excited to bring great golf and great entertainment to Sioux Falls, including a comedic show featuring one of the funniest professional golf insiders, David Feherty, to take the Washington Pavilion stage.

Feherty Live!
Thursday, September 1 at 7 p.m.
Washington Pavilion Mary W. Sommervold Hall

We want all GreatLIFE members to have an opportunity to see Feherty when he visits Sioux Falls as part of the GreatLIFE Challenge lineup, so we’re offering discount pricing and exclusive early-bird ticketing before tickets go on sale to the general public.

  • Tickets are available to members on August 4 using the promo code GREATLIFE.
  • $10 Off tickets – You pay only $20!

Once described as “a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Carson”, David Feherty made a name for himself through his self-titled Golf Channel talk show – and as one of the most irrepressible personalities in golf. He received an Emmy nomination in 2014, and joined NBC Sports Group and NBCUniversal exclusively in 2015. He is now a familiar on-course and tower analyst since retiring from professional golf in 1996.

His sharp wit and clever personality have made Feherty a viewer favorite and an audience pleaser. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the “wicked” humor of Feherty live at the Washington Pavilion.

Thank you for supporting GreatLIFE and year two of the GreatLIFE Challenge.

GreatLIFE Worthington celebrates first year, announces new VP

Sioux Falls, South Dakota (April 21, 2016) – At GreatLIFE Malaska Golf & Fitness Club Worthington, there’s always something to celebrate, and this month the company is celebrating its first year in Worthington and a new vice president.

The festivities began with a Worthington Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday, April 20, and will be followed up with an all-day Open House including a mixer with refreshments from 3:00 – 7:00 p.m. on April 27.

New members that sign up during the Open House will get their first month’s membership FREE and no initiation fee.

The public is invited to come out, mix and mingle with the community, learn more about GreatLIFE Worthington, and meet recently named Vice President of Public Relations, Community Relations and Corporate Partnerships, Chad Nixon.

A Worthington resident, Nixon is very active in the community, serving on various community committees and boards. He brings more than 20 years of experience in business management and ownership to the GreatLIFE Malaska Golf & Fitness Club organization.

Nixon met Tom Walsh, Sr., GreatLIFE Chairman/CEO, while attending the University of South Dakota. This was the beginning a business relationship and friendship that has evolved over time. Nixon joined the Dakota King family in 1998, managing the Burger King in Worthington and subsequently became Walsh’s business partner and now, Vice President of Public Relations, Community Relations and Corporate Partnerships for GreatLIFE Worthington.

“I can think of no one better than Chad to drive the future development of GreatLIFE in Worthington,” said Walsh. Chad is not only focused making the city a great place to live and work, but also on our goals of membership growth, program development and increased club exposure. People that have worked with him on projects know just how effective he can be when he’s determined to get things done.”
