The Bully Pulpit Golf Course

The Bully Pulpit Golf Course is south of town just minutes from downtown. It’s a gorgeous golf course, ranked as one of America’s 100 greatest golf courses. I didn’t have time to play this course today but friends have told me that buffalo will wander through as you are playing. If the approximately $75 per person price is too much for you, at least stop by their gift shop and have a snack on their beautiful patio. Learn more about it here.

The Best Pizza in the Country?

We were tipped off by our front desk host at our hotel about a pizza joint in Medora. She said it’s the best pizza in the country and that she was from Chicago, so she should know. We had to check it out, and we agree, Badlands Pizza and Saloon is a great pizza joint with a cool patio.
