Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- It's one of the best golf courses in the Red River

Valley and today it has a brand new look.

A project that started over a year ago is finally wrapping up at Moorhead

Country Club.

The course is revamping its back 9; changing from a par 36 to 35 and redesigning some holes, including changing the 10th hole from a par 4 to a 3; some of the changes were necessary to combat rising flood waters; but for the golfers that will test the new holes; it's going to be an eye-opening experience.

Larry Murphy- Moorhead CC Head Professional: "Really a new start for the golf course at Moorhead County Club; we have 7 new holes on the back nine our architect Joel Goelstrand has done a great job of re-designing it there's going to be a lot of water an island green on number 16 a forty foot drop from tee to green and surrounded by water."

The total cost for the project was about 2.5 million dollars; paid for by the Minnesota DNR and Moorhead city funds.
