SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- A rare winter golf season in South Dakota is continuing for residents of Sioux Falls.
KSFY television reports that the city's Elmwood Golf Course will remain open through Tuesday.
Course officials say temperatures reaching into the 40s to 50s through Tuesday led to the move. A warm dry winter with no snow cover has been making it possible for residents to hit the links this winter.
Elmwood's opening even drew some recent publicity in Canada. The Winnipeg Free Press ran a short item earlier this month noting the course is open, and it's only an eight hour drive from the Manitoba capital.
