Hawktree – Uncommon Ground

Hawktree – Uncommon Ground

My first glimpse of Jim Engh’s Hawktree Golf Club in Bismarck, North Dakota left me awestruck… slack-jawed… utterly flabbergasted. It was in 2010, ten years ago, and they were celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary. The head pro at the time had gotten so used to the stunned expression of underestimating guests, that he’d resigned himself to modestly responding to their unfailing amazement with, “Yeah, it’s a nice place.”

Medora And Bully Pulpit Golf Course – Bucket List Bests

There are certain things in life every American should do at least once: Eat lobster in Maine and BBQ on Sea Island. Visit the Grand Canyon and Statue of Liberty. Drive up Old Fall River Road in Rocky Mountain National Park and around Crater Lake. See the lighting of Mount Rushmore and Niagara Falls. Attend a Blue Man Group concert and the Medora Musical.

MEDORA, North Dakota – Explore It. Adore It.

It’s a trip you have to take… at least once. At least twice. It’s a place you have to spend a night… at least one. Okay, at least two. Really, at least three. Medora may geographically, for all intents and purposes, be in Montana, but it’s also a lot closer than you would think to the Twin Cities.

The Links of North Dakota – Connect Four

The Links of North Dakota – Connect Four

Ten years ago, almost to the day, I made my first golf loop through North Dakota. I started in Bismarck, at Hawktree, then drove the 140 miles to Medora to play Bully Pulpit, then 150 more miles to play The Links of North Dakota.

King’s Walk – A Legacy To Love

I never have to be asked to write an article on Arnold Palmer. My editors will say, “Hey, there’s an Arnold Palmer…” and I cut them off. “I’ll do it,” I say, not caring in the least what the actual angle is.
