Instead of double bogeys people were doing double takes at a local golf course.

This young bull moose is sighted at Pebble Creek Golf Course near the Golf Dome.

It was nibbling on some branches near a slough on the northwest side of the course and eventually went for a swim.

One spectator says she saw it as early as 4am and dozens stopped by to snap photos and to take a look.

The moose seemed completely at ease and unconcerned at his growing celebrity.

" We were looking around on Facebook this morning and saw the photo of the moose and the background and so my wife pieced it together and we just happened to be taking Jason to here to preschool and we saw it out the car window so we decided we had to stop and show Jason that there's a moose in town,"says Lincoln Hagen.

We were eating--Yeah we went to her dad's for lunch and her dad came home and said I have to go show you something quick, so this is what happened--We got in the car and said look there's a moose," say Paige Fettig & Emily Freeman.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department and Bismarck Police are keeping an eye on the moose.

Chief Game Warden, Bob Timian says, the young bull is not causing any problems and unless it becomes a safety hazard they'll just let it be.

Timian asks people to give the moose some distance and leave it alone.

He says more than likely the bull will find it's way out of town.
