SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Sanford International announced Wednesday the Minnehaha Country Club has agreed to continue hosting the tournament through 2024.

The Minnehaha Country Club Board of Directors and its Membership agreed on the two-year extension. The extension still needs final approval from Sanford International and PGA Tour Champions. In November 2020, following a survey, the country club announced it would not approve an extension and would host the tournament through 2022.

“The Sanford International is grateful for today’s decision made by the Board of Directors and Membership of Minnehaha Country Club in agreeing to be the host venue for the Sanford International through 2024,” said Josh Brewster, tournament director of the Sanford International. “Being the host of an event of this magnitude is no small task, and we sincerely appreciate the membership’s willingness and sacrifice in allowing us to host the event at their home. There is no better host venue in this region than Minnehaha Country Club and with their support, we will continue to make this a premier event on the PGA TOUR Champions.”

The Sanford International Presented by Cambria, a PGA TOUR Champions event will be played at Minnehaha Country Club the week of September 13-19, featuring a $1.8 million purse. Tickets to Sanford International are now on sale. You can purchase tickets at sanfordinternational.com or by phone at 605-229-9689. Tickets start at $20.

Volunteer registration for the 2021 Sanford International is now open. More than 1,200 volunteers are needed for the week of events. Volunteers can choose from more than 20 different committees. Visit sanfordinternational.com/volunteer/ for information.

The Sanford International debuted at the Minnehaha Country Club in September of 2018. Thousands of spectators have attended the event since then, and it has drawn multiple visits from golf legend Jack Nicklaus.
