SDGA Board Member Takes SDGA Flag to top of Handies Peak in southwest Colorado

The South Dakota Golf Association has been taken to new heights -- 14,048 feet, to be exact.

SDGA Board Member, Andy Ainslie of Rapid City, recently climbed Handies Peak in the San Juan range in southwest Colorado.

"From the summit, you can't see a city or a road...not a sign of civilization," according to SummitPost.

With an SDGA championship flag in tow, Ainslie (who was joined by two other climbers) proudly displayed his SDGA pride.

Thank you for the great photo, Andy!
