Winner: Edgewood Golf Course

Location: Fargo

From its memorable landscape and the staff who works hard to keep the course ready for play, Edgewood has been a local favorite for half a decade.

"It is such a great honor to win multiple times," says "We as a team try and make it a 'favorite place' every day," says Greg McCullough, Edgewood's head golf professional.

Sports like golf became even more popular this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Golf allows players to practice social distance while getting outdoors and exercising.


"Golf became an important outdoor recreation activity after a long winter," McCullough says. "It is important now more than ever to manage stress levels and find ways to remain active, golf did that."

McCullough credits Edgewood's beautiful landscape, and its "out of town" feel for the win.

"No matter how many times you play it, the course always feels different," he says.

And he's grateful an active golfer community continues to thrive in Fargo-Moorhead.
