An LPGA sponsored tournament, the Symetra Tour, is this weekend August 31st - September 6th in Sioux Falls at Willow Run Golf Course .

The record purse should also bring in the biggest names in the LPGA. Golfers participating in the tournament have a shot at the largest purse in the history of the tour – $210,000 – with the winner taking home $31,500 and almost certainly a spot on next year’s LPGA tour.

We’re proud to be a part of bringing this national tour to South Dakota for the first time in its history. It supports passion for the game of golf and keeps the dreams of young golfers alive, and that reflects our mission at GreatLIFE. It’s just a great opportunity for the city of Sioux Falls to shine.” - Tom Walsh, GreatLIFE chairman

Tiger Woods' niece has played on the tour this year and there is a good chance she'll be making the trip to Sioux Falls.

The Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge at Willow Run is one of only four 72-hole events on the tour and one of only 23 cities to host the tour.
