Tuthill Park is an inner-city attraction in the largest city of South Dakota. Its 18 hole disc golf course is often the course of choice for the South Dakota State Championships; and has a great reputation for the Sioux Falls Open. Free, quality disc golf with professionalism in mind.

17 of the holes are long cement teepads. Hole 18 is a shorter cement teepad that can add to the technical challenge of that drive through the trees.

Holes #1-3 feature large but sparse pines and hardwoods. Holes #4-5 require control down long, narrow fairways. Hole #6 is a long, downhill shot into the Big Sioux River Valley. Holes #7-8 test your short game. Holes #9-15 really open up and test your distance, with a couple challenges along the river. Push through uphill holes #16-17, leading you back to the top. Finish your round with technical hole #18.

Ed Yost pioneered the hot air balloon in Sioux Falls and was the first person ever to man a modern day balloon, with an onboard heat source, in 1960. During the summer, Tuthill is known for folks to fill up their hot-air balloons and take off at the bottom of the park, next to tee nine.

Local Directions:

From I-90 exit onto I-229 and go south 10 miles to exit at Cliff Ave. Proceed South 0.25 mile to the park entrance on the left. From I-29 exit onto I-229 and go East about 5 miles to the Cliff Ave exit. Proceed South to the park entrance on the left.

There are two main parking areas. The largest being at the very top. When the course gets congested at the top, its sometimes easiest to utilize the parking down at the bottom next to hole #9, your first left closest to the main entrance. There is also a small parking area right above, next to hole #16. You can start your round at either of these holes and finish in the same location.
