Thought I would give shout out to the MT players. ND's first ever A-Tier to be held on the championship course at Patterson Lake. $5000 added to pro divisions, and probably about another 10K in added goodies.

Registration available through PDGA's event calendar or through:

Update and Schedule:

Course is in great shape - prelude to state championship layouts during Badlands Open on July 11-12th. A couple of new tees going in for states (on #4 and #15) - yes - because I know everyone thought those two holes were too easy . And at least 2 or 3 new pin positions to keep things interesting. For those of you who have played here before, this will be our most challenging and comprehensive layout ever. Full caddy book will be posted online by the end of July detailing all 3 round layouts. For those of you looking for a challenge, this course is generally tougher than the USDGC course typically used at Rock Hill, but also fair, and places premium on shot accuracy and shot making ability.

The course is not physically demanding, but can be very mentally taxing, so only 1 round per day is sufficient. Course layouts generally get progressively tougher and true pro par 18-hole layouts will be:
R1 - 67
R2 - 69
R3 - 72

1st 50 to register will receive players package worth in excess of $100, the rest will have to "settle" for about $75 worth of goodies). There are also limited # of primitive camping sites available adjacent to the course for tenting on a first come first serve basis. Need to text or call to reserve spot (will post hotel info shortly). (701) 290-8893.
