MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The Minot Country Club has broken ground on a new golf course, some two years after the old facility was damaged by Souris River flooding.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The Minot Country Club has broken ground on a new golf course, some two years after the old facility was damaged by Souris River flooding.

Country club president Doug Larson tells the Minot Daily News that the club didn't have deal on a piece of land for this course until last December, and it's been a long process.

Officials and dignitaries broke ground on the course nestled in hills at the edge of southeast Minot on Wednesday afternoon.

Before the groundbreaking, the club needed to reach its membership goal of 200, secure the land and financing and ensure there'd be enough water to irrigate the greens.

Last fall , the club voted to relocate and sell the existing course to investors reopening it under a new name
