Located close to the city of Kildeer, the Medicine Hole golf course is a captivating and affordable 9-hole layout that Jim Engh designed in 2004. Extending to 3,290 yards from the longest tees, this links-style course starts and ends with a par five and a couple of really interesting par threes come into play on the 5th and 7th holes.
“I know a lot of guys from Killdeer and between bake sales, car washes and a lot of generous citizens we got it together,” said North Dakota-born architect Jim Engh, who designed his first (and so far only) 9-hole layout on a property that’s dominated by native grasses.
“I thought it was really interesting land and we didn’t have the ability to build a whole bunch of features on it but the land took over and we created a fun rolling experience that makes it unique with a flavor of North Dakota flare to it.”
