Dear GreatLIFE Member, Team Member & Support Team,

Well, a less than perfect Memorial weekend with rain and low temperatures but hopefully you are celebrating with family and friends. Our golf season is well underway with numerous programs and improvements. Free family clinics at Willow Run and Bakker Crossing Sunday from 5 pm to 6 pm. Free Junior clinics Mondays 9 am to 10 am at Willow Run. Free Adult clinics on Saturday from 5pm to 6 pm, please check clinic schedules at to be certain about each golf course’s schedule.

As a GreatLIFE Member, you get free green fees at our 16 golf courses all within 80 miles of Sioux Falls. At our GreatLIFE Golf Academy you can schedule assessments, lessons and club fittings with our PGA professional Drew Trautman at if interested. We will be hosting Junior Golf Camps throughout the Summer that you can connect our VP of Golf Jason Sudenga at for details. We also have Golf Fore Women through our Golf Academy.

There will be several Junior clinics for Soccer, Football, Basketball and other sorts throughout the Summer with our PLAY Everything Director Tristen Jackson who you can register with at to learn more. Our Revitalize at Woodlake Athletic Club offers 7 different massage therapies with our newly remodeled massage facility. Don’t forget all the different group fitness classes both in person and virtually.

This past month I attend three Youth Entrepreneur Market Days at George McGovern and Memorial Middle Schools where the YE Students set up booths with merchandise and food items that each grade level comes down for a half hour to purchase their goods. They were chaotic, exciting and fun for all. It helps the Students learn about business and the important role of education. A key fact is that kids who participate in a YE classes have a graduation rate of over 90%! If you don’t graduate from high school, you are 7 times more likely to live a life of poverty.

Our GreatLIFE Cares Foundation hosted over 20 Youth Entrepreneur Teachers and Administrators for a reception and dinner as a thank you for the over 35 Youth Entrepreneur classes at several public schools as well as O’Gorman High School. During dinner each one spoke of their involvement with Students and the impact it is having in engaging them. To the person, they were very enthusiastic about the experience and the powerful impact it had on them as well. It was a truly inspirational evening!

I hope of you had a moment or two to think of all the Veterans that you might know and the ones that have suffered and may have made the ultimate sacrifice for the blessing and freedoms we enjoy. God bless them and especially Our GreatLIFE Members and Team Members that are Veterans and remember “All gave some, some gave all”.
