Work Continues on Palmer Course
In spring 2001, work began anew on the Arnold Palmer course – called King’s Walk – in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The $5.6-million project involves an 18-hole, Scottish-style links. It may open in the fall of 2001 or spring 2002, depending on weather and grow-in. The new course is being built by Enebak Construction of Northfield, Minnesota.
The layout features several rolling hills – involving 40-foot elevation changes – that wrap around two man-made lakes. The biggest of the lakes is 8.5 acres. An extensive drainage system was built. Underground pipes lead to the lakes and drainage ditches to alleviate the heavy rainfall common in Grand Forks County.
Also planned is a 16-acre driving range near the 1st tee. The clubhouse is a 5,300-square-foot, early-American style structure similar to those in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
