I didn’t mention this in the opening, but I’m also partial to North Dakota because of the world-class bird hunting. As a kid, I made a couple of trips up here to hunt pheasants with my dad.
So, when I learned about Pheasant Country Golf Course, I had to see it for myself.
Even though this course sits in the wide-open prairie, it’s an old design with lots of trees. As you might expect, it’s not all that long, but the fairways are narrow. Shot placement is key.
The greens are small and undulating too. Do your best to stay below the hole.
My round here was a memorable one. As I finished just before sunset, I heard the distant cackle of a rooster pheasant somewhere off in the distance. It was almost as if he was inviting me to come back for more.
