Bully Pulpit Golf Course to open on April 27, 2013

Bully Pulpit Golf Course to open on April 27, 2013

Managers say inquiries by golfers from across the U.S. point to another outstanding year.

Medora’s Bully Pulpit Golf Course will open for the 2013 season on April 27.

Casey Moen, Bully Pulpit’s Head Golf Professional, says the course is ready for what could be a record year. Moen says inquiries from across the nation have increased since February when Golf Digest named the course as one of the Top 100 Golf Courses for 2013. The magazine also gave the course a “Best in State” ranking.

“Bully Pulpit was already well-known among serious golfers across the country but the Golf Digest ranking has golfers, who have not yet visited the course, saying they need to experience the course for themselves,” says Moen.

While the recent snow may have delayed the course’s opening, Bully Pulpit Golf Shop manager Kathy Solga says the additional moisture was beneficial and the timing for the season opener is still on target. READ MORE »

BreakSk8 – June 8 – June 30, 2012

BreakSk8

In 1964, Harold Schafer contracted with Al Sheehan of Minneapolis to create a show for his newly acquired amphitheater. Harold asked Al to identify variety acts to include in the show that the folks from North Dakota would not have to travel far from home to see. World-class variety acts right in our own backyard! Continuing with that tradition we are kicking off the 2012 season with a variety act that you won’t want to miss!

Breaksk8, a Hip Hop dance crew on roller skates from Kokomo, Indiana, has been featured on several TV shows including NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew,” and Disney’s hit show “Shake it Up.” Since the group formed in 2001, Breaksk8 has amazed audiences around the globe with their unique style of entertainment on wheels. Most recently Breaksk8 was featured on the Hunan Satellite Network, which was viewed by more than 500 million people in mainland China.
