Construction is moving forward at Elmwood Golf Course.
The city broke ground on a $5 million renovation project on Monday.
The city course is adjacent to the airport, so the parks department has been working with the Federal Aviation Administration to come up with a plan that improves the course while also making the airport safer.
"Golf courses, you know, they have life spans and this is going to regenerate and rejuvenate Elmwood well into the future," Tom Jansa with Dakota Golf Management said.
"We are more than excited about it; we have great anticipation. In about three summers, Elmwood will be packed. You'll have to call early for your tee time," Myla Kampshoff with the Golf Advisory Board said.
The project will take three seasons to complete. Nine holes will be closed each year, which means 18-holes will remain open at all times.
