    Located just two miles south of town, Grand Forks Country Club is nestled into the rolling terrain of the Red River Valley.  With plenty of mature, tree-lined fairways and low density real estate development, the course offers a truly private round of golf for our members that is not available at most other courses.

    • The golf course features 18 holes of championship golf on one of the best manicured courses in North Dakota.  Measuring 6,854 yards, the course provides a test of skill for even the most accomplished golfers, while for four sets of tees allow players of all skill levels to enjoy the game.  The club features a full length driving range complemented by a short iron practice hole to refine your skills before tackling the course.  There is also a putting and chipping green conveniently located next to the 1stand 10thtee boxes.

      The course was designed and built in 1964 by legendary course architect Robert Bruce Harris and continues to provide its hallmarks of challenge, beauty, and privacy for all those fortunate to play it.  Visitwww.gfcountryclub.comfor more information about the club.
