New Country Club Breaks Ground

Posted: Updated:

In a matter of two years, Minot will go from having only nine holes of golf, to 54.

Contributing to that total is the new location for the Minot Country Club.

After two years of planning, and two years until the first golfers walk the green, today Minot Country Club celebrated a midway-milestone.

At the future site of hole number 14, the Minot Chamber of Commerce congratulated board members with a groundbreaking ceremony.

The four million dollar golf course in southeast Minot should be complete in 2015.

Construction will start on the clubhouse next spring.

Country Club member Daryl Somerville says one of the biggest challenges over the past two years was finding a location and organizing a board.

The par-72 layout designed by golf course architect Jim Engh will aim for the same family feel the Country Club had before the 2011 flood.

(Daryl Somerville, Minot Country Club Board Member) "We're looking to acquire some new members before the freeze up this year. Again, we're really gearing towards a family environment and really get some things out here for Minot to replace some of the things we've lost."
