Bully Pulpit is truly a golf experience unmatched anywhere else. But sometimes we wonder if we’re a little biased because of our love for the Badlands as a whole. Recently, though, Minnesota Tee Times‘ Michael Herzog made the trek to Medora to take in the Bully Pulpit experience for himself.
After a day on the course and night on the town, we think Michael may now have the same feelings for the Badlands as we do. Here are a few snippets from his recent story.
“I am often asked by friends, “Why would I invest my time, money, and resources into the eight hour drive to Medora to play Bully Pulpit?” and I can answer that with one word: simple. You will find that Bully Pulpit Golf Course and the city of Medora provide what Bully Pulpits’ PGA Head Golf Professional, Casey Moen, refers to as ‘The Crescendo Effect.’
“The last 5 holes run into the hills of the Badlands and give the golf course a different feeling with stunning views. The 14th hole requires a tee shot into the environmental area on the left to kick the ball into the center of the fairway and the 15th, a downhill par 3, was tough to club with a 20-25mph wind to a postage stamp green with a 15 foot fall off in each direction. It’s definitely the ‘Signature Hole’.
“It provides you with the first 13 and the last 5 or what is absolute every bit the definition of ‘The Crescendo Effect.’
“I ate dinner at the popular “Theodore’s Dining Room and TR’s Tavern.” I ordered the sirloin steak with mashed potatoes, fresh salad, cooked vegetables, and wheat bread. The meal was outstanding and well worth the price. It was a five-star facility hands down.”
