Bismarck is one of the largest cities in North Dakota. It’s also home to Hawktree Golf Club.
This is an open layout with links features. When the course was designed, environmental sustainability was a top priority. As a result, only 80 acres of turf are irrigated here. The rest of the property consists of rolling terrain and native grasses that define the Burnt Creek Valley.
This is a tough golf course from the tips. It’s long and the wind blows (my wife was right about that). It’s more than fair though. Multiple tee options exist, and the landing areas are generous.
Once you get to the greens, be ready for some long putts.
It’s hard to put into words just how unique the experience at Hawktree is. You’ll have to come find out for yourself.
