Under a multi-year partnership, the company will direct all aspects of Dakota Dunes’ business, including, sales, marketing and public relations, staffing and training, programming and special events, property maintenance, merchandising, restaurant and banquet activities, and financial management.

“We are impressed by Landscapes Golf Management’s success efficiently and professionally operating golf courses and clubs in Sioux Falls, Omaha, and across the country” says Craig Stanley, President of Dakota Dunes Country Club’s Board of Directors.  “The company is the perfect fit to bring stability and forward thinking to our club, delighting members and putting us in a favorable financial position for generations to come.”
