Great Course in western North Dakota home of Teddy Roosevelt.
Front 9 great layout in the little Missouri River basin. Back 9 great layout thru Badlands.
They are redesigning hole 3 and 4
Will have to play during next visit to a must see Medora Musical. Have a few bunkers they are giving back to nature.
Hole 8 perfect par three to finish front 170 no where to miss Tight 9 finish with trees on entrance to green
Hole 12 200 yard par 3
Short hole 13 requires Accurate drive to be rewarded with wedge to green
These is beginning of accurate shots
14 down hill drive that requires a little fade to find the fairway - then up hill to slight dogleg left green
15 par 3 from one spot to another must carrying the canyon maybe 10 yards to miss in front or ball is gone
16 great hole down the hill enjoyable for all
Great to see ball land and chase down the fairway then uphill to a tricky fast green
17 down hill dogleg left Par 5 with some waste areas in middle of fairway to small green with river behind green
18 tough finishing hole dogleg left to uphill green - bunkers guard left
Must play if in Midwest Area
14-16-18 greens could be made more receptive to long approach shots
