Golf Courses

All Bismarck Parks and Recreation District’s golf courses are open with social distancing practices in place. Golf course safety protocols remain in place with tee times being made online or via phone, one person per golf cart and outdoor check-ins.

The Pebble Creek Golf Course, Tom O’Leary Golf Course and Riverwood Golf Course pro shops are open with limited access and social distancing guidelines. Safety protocol signs are on site at each pro shop.

Riverwood, Tom O’Leary and Pebble Creek Golf Courses

Riverwood Golf Course, 725 Riverwood Dr., Tom O’Leary Golf Course, 1200 N Washington St., and Pebble Creek Golf Course, 2525 N 19th St., are open for play from 8:30am to 8pm daily.

Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) encourages all golfers to follow these golf course procedures for employee and customer safety:

  • Reservations should be made in advance. Reservations can be made online or by calling the golf course of your choice: Riverwood Golf Course, 222-6462; Tom O’Leary Golf Course, 222-6531 or Pebble Creek Golf Course, 223-3600. Payment information will be taken over the phone at the time of reservation. Cash will not be accepted on site.
  • There will be a maximum of four players allowed in a group.
  • Pull carts are allowed and golf carts are available to rent. Golf carts will be sanitized between users. Rental and demo clubs are not available at this time.
  • A ball is considered holed when it touches the cup-sized target placed on the green.  It is very important not to touch this target with your hands.  Do not move this target. Staff will change these locations throughout the week based on the number of rounds played.

Pebble Creek and Riverwood Driving Range Guidelines

Driving range hours will be 8:30am to 8pm daily, weather dependent. The buckets and balls are cleaned and disinfected by gloved staff before each use. Driving range stations are placed at least 10 feet apart to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Sheila Schafer Junior Links

The title of this free three-hole golf course next to the Tom O’Leary Golf Course may say “Junior Links,” but this course is open to ANY player. If you’re just learning the game of golf, or want additional practice, head to this little gem of a course at 1200 N. Washington St. No tee time needed. Bring some friends and get to know the game of golf. Need some clubs? No problem. Clubs can be rented at the Tom O’Leary Golf Course Pro Shop.

The course is located between the YMCA and the VFW Sports Center, and was a joint effort between Bismarck Parks and Recreation District and the Dakota Junior Golf Association.Sheila Schafer Junior Links 2016 (1)
