North Dakota Golf Courses

Postby Bison-Vikes #1 » Mon Jul 29, 2013 10:11 am

Just got back from a golf outing with a group of guys. Annual event in which we are trying to golf all ND golf courses before getting too old (dead) to golf. Followed the Lion's BB Games so covered a lot of territory. This year we hit Larimore, Lisbon, Linton, Ellendale, Hankinson (Dakota Winds), Grand Rapids (LaMoure area) and New Rockford. All nice courses. Was really impressed with Linton, gem of a nine hole course. Need to start planning for next year and was hoping to get some input on other nice courses around the state.

Sounds fun. Have always wanted to do something like that, but don't have the buddies that like to golf. I've golfed Lisbon, Grand Rapids, and New Rockford. Washburn, Underwood, Westhope, Botno, Cooperstown, Mayville, Velva, Harvey, Fessenden, Dunseith, Rugby are other nice courses as well. Have heard good things about Rolla and Walhalla, but never got up to those to golf. Have you heard of Chip in for Charity? Its a card you can buy each year to get free rounds or half off rounds one time at most ND courses and its only $30 a card.

Yes, we used those cards this past week. Great idea and accepted at many of the courses. Basically paid for the card during our short trip. Live in the Cando area so have golfed most of the courses you mentioned. Golfed the International Tournament for nearly 20 years and just decided to do something different about 5 years ago. The border can get to be a hassle in early morning hours, etc. Rolla and Walhalla are nice and challenging courses.

ndlionsfan, how were Westhope and Dunseith?

Thinking about going across the north central part of the state. Maybe start at Rolla, then go to Dunseith, Bottineau, Westhope, Mohall maybe Berthold, Burlington. Does anybody have any input on those courses?

Dunseith is a great little course with a lot of challenging holes. Trees everywhere up there. Westhope is a neat course with 9 greens and 18 tee boxes. Greens have always been in great shape when I've played there. Wildwood at Burlington I've only golfed once but thought it was a pretty decent course, too.

Bottineau is probably my favorite course to play cause I always shoot low there. If you remember every putt breaks towards the elevator in town you'll be golden!
