There’s a new leader in charge of food and beverage at Willow Run Golf Course this year. Mike Mather moved to Sioux Falls from Denver. He had managed food and beverage previously at a golf course in Rapid City and found a great match at GreatLIFE.
If you haven’t checked out The Willows Food & Spirits at Willow Run, he has some great reasons to stop in soon.
The Willows currently is open for dinner. When will you be adding lunch again?
As soon as the course opens. We were hoping April 1, but the weather hasn’t allowed it. We’re hoping soon – definitely in April.
Any changes to the menu this year?
A couple. We removed a few items and added traditional wings, which weren’t on the menu in the past, because we’ve had a lot of guest requests. We’ll be bringing back our popular summer salad. At lunch, we have a select menu with $10, $7 and $5 items available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s burgers, quesadillas, personal pizzas, chislic, half-sandwiches and salad, so something quick and easy.
What are some of the most popular menu items?
Burgers for sure. We have a buy-one-get-one burger night on Mondays, so that’s popular. Our nachos, which are on special Wednesday for Latin night, are big, and you get your choice of beef, chicken or pork.
Willow Run also hosts a lot of special events, and you provide the catering. Have you been busy getting ready for that?
We have. The closer we get to summer and wedding season we’ve been picking up with events, and we have an upstairs loft space that seats 20 comfortably. We encourage you to call now with events. The sooner we can get them booked the better.
What’s the best part about dining at The Willows?
Definitely the patio. It’s a huge draw. You can watch the sunset over the 18th hole, it looks over the driving range, and we have fire pits, which is huge. You can sit around the fire pit with some drinks and appetizers or dinner, watch the sun go down and just relax.
It won’t be long before outdoor dining returns at Willow Run! Here’s more on what’s new this season — starting with a new manager.
