Bully Pulpit golf course is an 18-hole public golf course located in Medora, North Dakota.
Bully Pulpit golf course first opened for play in 2004. The par-72 course was designed by Michael Hurdzan.
Located just three miles south of Medora, the Bully Pulpit is nestled within North Dakota's badlands. The features of Bully Pulpit conform to the natural landscape rather than encroaching on it. Some holes play in meadows, some in woodlands, and others follow the meandering Little Missouri River. Several holes on the back nine are built into the rugged Badlands themselves, where the restless canyon winds will test and tease the ball as it drops 200 feet from tee to fairway.
Overall the course features five different tees, ranging in length from a comfortable 4,750 total yards from the red tees to a challenging 7,166 yards at the black tees.
In 2005, Bully Pulpit was designated the best new affordable public golf course in the nation by Golf Digest. It was the first time a golf course in North Dakota won an award from Golf Digest. This distinction made the tiny town of Medora one of the top tourist attractions in the state.

A must do course, I have been talking about going for 3 years, just got back from playing Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. (5-13-16 and 5-14-16.) Regulars at the course said this is the best condition they have seen it this early in the year. Don't wait to give this course a try, breath taking!

Great layout in the geographical middle of nowhere. Staff are great, course is fun, tough, and breath-taking all at the same time. Definitely worth the trip, and I will make the trip as often as I can.

A must play course...well worth the trip to play. The scenery is simply beyond comprehension. A course this scenic in Hawaii would cost 3 times as much to play
