Who has the nicest course ?

Postby Mustanghero » Sat Mar 17, 2007 8:13 pm

I've been told that Bully Pulpit is the best, Bulah's is a good one, dickinson's is tough in the back 9, there's so many opinions. So what do u guys think ?

i've only seen pics of the medora course, but it sure does look like an amazing way to kill an afternoon.

I went to golf camp at bully pulpit. I got to golf there for 5 days, it was amazing. Great scenery, no wind, all around great golf atmosphere.

If your looking west then i would say Hawktree, east hands down is the Fargo Country Club.

Bully Pulpit is great for golf, plays relatively easy.  Red Mike in Williston is usually toughest with the wind rain and sometimes snow. I remember when Minot CC was Minot's Invitational it was one the best courses for the region.

Edgewood is legit for about a month out of the year when all 18 holes are open and in good shape.

bully pulpit looks nice, but i dont like to play it more than 2 times a year. hawktree, very fun. red mike i have only played once, and i was not a big fan but it was nice. i really like traditional courses like a riverwood or heart river. trees, water, sand... but not too much of just one. as far as the east, jamestown is pretty fun, souris is too. idk bout other from that part.

I agree with playing Bully more than twice...get's to be a little too much

Oh very nice. Over 7,000 yards. Hard for an average golfer. Not too difficult for a pro. Suits tournament play perfectly.

The best in the state is Hawktree next i'd say Red Mike or FCC are pretty even but they are such different types of courses its hard to compare.  I've only played Bully P. twice and it was pretty soon after it opened last spring so i may be wrong but it didn;t live up to my expectations, like 5 holes are sweet just because of the view and the atmosphere (badlands) makes it worth playing but i wouldn;t say it compares with Hawktree, Red Mike, or FCC, maybe even Edgewood
Doctors and scientists said that breaking the four-minute mile was impossible, that one would die in the attempt. Thus, when I got up from the track after collapsing at the finish line, I figured I was dead.

Beulah's not cool, Bully Pulpit isn't as nice as Hawktree, Dickinson is love easy as heck. The toughest from the tips in the west is Riverwood. It is over 7000 yards with trouble on every shot. Hawktree from the tips isn't as hard and neither is Bully. Red Mike isn't very nice. Fargo Country Club is tough. Grand Forks Country Club is tough in the wind.

Hawktree is my favorite to play. Fargo CC is a great course too but havnet been there in a while. Hawktree is a very tough course when the wind is blowing more then 15 MPH, very few trees and a lot of elevated tees

Bully Pulpit is very very nice, but when I was there the greens were really fast. That seemed to be the one and only one complaint from everybody. Heart River is my second pick. Beulah's is also pretty fun. Never been to Hawktree though...

No real golfer should complain about fast greens. If you are a true golfer, you should live for fast greens. Slow greens, like at Heart River and Beulah, *edited by moderator the big one. These greens don't even run at a 10 on the stimp meter. Last year at the US Open it was 14, the Masters has some parts of their greens roll a 15. You are *edited by moderator*

I didn't mean to complain all I was saying is that they were faster then everyone was used to.

Fargo Country Club...potential to be a heck of a course, but its too bad its not...But Bully is amazing it'd be a course that would be fun to play many times to see how tough it really is. I believe the North Dakota Strokeplay tournament at Hawktree really proved how nice and tough of a course it is with its fescue and its very big greens with hidden sandtraps and wind and elevations which makes club selections tough. I would say Hawktree hands down.

i think that bully pulpit is the nicest course in the west, there is barely any wind there when i have played and the course always seems to be in good shape. i will say that hawktree is nice, and red mike is tough as balls but when you compare them to bully, hands down bully is the better course in the west
