Looks like a pretty decent weather this weekend, and it's time to get out on the golf courses in Bismarck.  According to a press release from Bismarck Parks and Rec, the three public golf courses in town are set to open Friday, March 19th (tomorrow) at 11 am.

Those courses include, Pebble Creek Golf Course, Tom O’Leary Golf Course and Riverwood Golf Course.  Seems like the courses are opening up earlier and earlier every year.  Lack of snowfall the last couple of years sure has to help.

According to the press release, course hours at this time are 11 am to 5:45 pm daily. Course hours will vary based on changes in daylight and weather conditions. Unpredictable spring weather means courses may close for a short period or for the day, depending on the severity of the weather. At this time, Tom O’Leary Golf Course and Pebble Creek Golf Course are open for walking only; Riverwood Golf Course will be cart path only until further notice.

Golfers can make tee times online at www.bisparks.org or call ahead to make tee times and confirm course availability. Bismarck Parks and Rec staff can help with tee times and online reservation questions.  You can reach the golf courses below.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
