Edgewood Golf Course if filled with history and beautiful scenery. Established in the mid-1920’s, Edgewood is the only tree-line public golf course in the Fargo Moorhead metro area.
“Edgewood is unique in that it has undulations and trees,” said Fargo Park District Executive Director Roger Gress. “Not many courses have that character. Up on the north side, it’s our Mona Lisa.”
Edgewood is annually on the Golf Digest “Best places to play” list. It has also been home to the Roger Maris Celebrity Golf Tournament for 20 plus years. The course has 18 holes, located along the Red River. Yet with this scenery comes issues as spring time approaches. Flooding has often prevented the course from opening fully in the spring.
“Flooding up at Edgewood is a big deal,” said Gress. “It often puts us in a position where we’ll only have nine or 10 holes and damage to repair before we open.”
Adjustments have been made on holes 2, 3 and 4 in the past to deal with flooding and a routing plan has been implemented which “allows Edgewood to compete with the other golf courses” according to Gress.
But this year, Gress has high hopes. “It could be our come back year,” he said. “We really want to get our golfers our early.”
According to Gress, a full golf season could last from the end of March to the end of October. So how does one take advantage of this “come back season”? The park district offers daily and weekly fees, punch cards, season pass and even runs a 5 for 1 special which allows individuals to play all five of the Fargo Park District public courses.
