It was another day of friends, fellowship, fundraising…and golf at the 2021 SDARL West River golf outing. Seventy golfers registered for the event, which was held on a beautifully warm pre-Autumn September 9th at the Elks Golf Course in Rapid City.

The event featured skill prizes, a Hole-in-One contest, the “Minute to Win It” putting and chipping competition, and challenging tricks like teeing off from a saddle. The winning foursome was from Great Western Bank, featuring Tiffany Robertson (SDARL IX), Paige Kadlec, Doug Theel (SDARL V), and Marv Larabee.

Several dignitaries participated in the day, including Lieutenant Governor Larry Rhoden, South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott Vander Wal, and American Sheep Industry Association Executive Director Peter Orwick.  Enjoy more pictures below!
