GreatLIFE announces 5th Annual Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge and is seeking volunteers to take part in this great event.
Please consider joining GreatLIFE as a volunteer. It’s a great way to promote our wonderful state and welcoming city; to support the game of golf; and to help someone reach their dream of playing on the LPGA.
In four short years, the Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge has become a favorite stop on the LPGA Symetra Tour thanks to the warm welcoming the players receive from our volunteers and community. Interested volunteers should contact Gregg Mutt Helms at 605.370.9640 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers can also register here.
About the Tournament
GreatLIFE Golf & Fitness Club and Willow Run Golf Course will be hosting 144 of the world’s best female professional golfers in the world August 26th – September 1st. Participants from 45 countries will compete for a total purse of $210,000, one of the largest on the LPGA Symetra Tour. In addition, the winner will take home the coveted crystal and quartz trophy and a champion’s check for $31,500.
The GreatLIFE Challenge is part of the Symetra Tour, which is the official qualifying tour of the LPGA, known as “the Road to the LPGA.” The top ten 10 money winners on the Symetra Tour earn their playing privileges on the LPGA tour in 2020. Past GreatLIFE Challenge champions Nelly Korda and Celine Boutier have made statement wins on the LPGA tour since triumphing in Sioux Falls.
