Golf North Dakota Style
Golf Digest, Golfweek, Midwest Golf Magazine; they can't all be wrong. In fact, they are dead on when it comes to ranking North Dakota's top courses. Golf Digest, for instance, tabbed Bully Pulpit Golf Course at Medora the 94th best public course in the country for 2014. The Links of North Dakota at Ray was 53rd and Hawktree 78th among the 100 Greatest Courses and The Links was the No. 1 course in North Dakota in 2013-14.
How does one get to be so highly regarded? Find out for yourself why North Dakota is an emerging golf destination. If you're tired of booking reservations weeks in advance, fighting crowds and five-hour rounds, North Dakota's courses are for you. If you're tired of paying $150 for a single round of golf, pay $165 for The Triple Challenge and play Bully Pulpit, Hawktree and The Links. Looking for something a little different? Golf the Lewis and Clark Golf Trail, a collection of 18- and nine-hole courses along the Missouri River.
In the east, Edgewood Golf Course in Fargo and Arnold Palmer's King's Walk in Grand Forks provide challenges in the Red River Valley, and a unique 27-hole links-style course awaits at Dakota Winds Casino in Hankinson.
