Fifty-six golf carts were lost in the fire at Elmwood Golf Course this week.
Justin Arlt with Sioux Falls Golf says the fleet of carts is leased and insured. He says the fire won’t affect the upcoming Spring season. Arlt says the course will be provided with a temporary fleet of gas carts. He’s happy no one was hurt.
“Chad Veire, our new head golf professional was in the golf shop at that time. He was actually alerted from a passerby that was driving a vehicle on Russell. He came charging in,” Arlt said.
Arlt says the City of Sioux Falls owns the cart shed. They’ll be in charge of when that gets rebuilt. As of right now, there’s no word yet on the cause of the fire.
