The Golf Workout Program website recently released a new poll that reflects Sioux Falls as one of the best locations for golfers across the country. Specifically, the city is ranked number three in the small metros for golfers.

According to the poll conducted by Golf Workout Program, research has determined that golf has reached a popularity high. This upward trend started thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A record 3.2 million people played for the first time in 2021. This increase in popularity has come despite the costs associated with golf, which can be a major barrier to entry, from equipment to greens fees to club dues. Beyond cost, however, a number of other local conditions can affect how easy it is for people to keep up with their golf hobby. Researchers calculated a composite score to determine the best location for golfers, then ranked metros accordingly.

With harsh winter weather conditions, what makes Sioux Falls so great for golfers? Thanks to the number of golf courses and country clubs per capita, sporting goods stores per capita, and even a PGA Tour Champions event, Sioux Falls golfers are living large! Here are the official results from Golf Workout Program ranking the best small and midsize metros for golfers throughout the country.

See Some of Sioux Falls' Beautiful Murals [PHOTOS]

I was in Canton, SD, and I happened upon a new mural.

It was really cool and that got me thinking that I know of a few murals in Sioux Falls, but I bet there's more than I realize. So, I put it out on social media for the people of Sioux Falls to tell me where all the murals are!

A few of them I had never seen, or never even been to that part of town, and a few of them, I drive by all the time and never noticed!

I know a few businesses have murals inside their establishments, but I decided to keep it to murals that are totally open for the public to see. No need to be 21!

So, here we go! Let's check out some of Sioux Falls' murals.
Did I miss one? Let me know!
