Kathy Solga, an Inspiring Woman
If you stop out at Medora’s Bully Pulpit Golf Course on a September afternoon, you’ll notice a few things.
First, the summer tourist season doesn’t appear to be over in the least, with a full parking lot, bustling pro shop, and shiny, scoria-colored golf carts zipping around almost every breathtaking hole. (While the famed Medora Musical wraps up the second weekend of September, Bully Pulpit keeps hosting golfers until late October, or until the snow flies—whichever comes first.)
Second, if you’re looking for golf shop manager Kathy Solga, you may have to get in line, as it seems just about everyone on the course knows her and wants to give her a warm hello. But don’t worry—not only will she be happy to take time to visit, she’ll make you feel like you are the only person in the room.
For many of you, this will be your first round of the year. So we’ve decided to help you prepare. Below Dr. Michael Hurzdan, the designer of Bully Pulpit Golf Course, gets you ready for your round by letting you into his head — as he describes what went into the designing of Bully Pulpit’s front nine.
You can use this information to help you shoot your best score on Bully Pulpit. By taking advantage of the front nine’s easy par threes, and the reachable par 5 fourth, you set yourself up for a great round — but be prepared, because once you make the turn and head up into the Badlands, the golf gets very, very interesting.
Tee Time Reservations Now Open for Prestigious Course in the Heart of the Badlands
(Medora, ND) – Bully Pulpit Golf Course, set in the rugged North Dakota Badlands, is officially set to open for play next week, beginning on Wednesday, April 8, weather permitting. Tee times for the entire golfing season are now available for individual and group play.
A relatively mild winter and a string of above average temperatures meant that grounds crews had excellent time to get the course in playing condition, allowing Bully Pulpit to open sooner than previous years.
Early season rates, which start at just $49 and continue until May 1, also provide players with the best value of the year.
