The Dakotas Tour is a developmental tour that has served as a starting point for many young pros coming out of college, wanting to sharpen their game prior to a shot at the PGA or Nationwide tours. Others use the Tour to hone their skills for a run at the Champions Tour. The Dakotas Tour runs July through August, and the Bobcat North Dakota State Open is the last event before the championship at the end of the month.
The Village Family Service Center
The Village Family Service Center has been working with children and families since 1891, when it was established as the North Dakota Children’s Home Society. Through the mid-1960s, the organization’s primary emphasis was to provide for homeless children through foster care and adoption. Over the years, its services have changed and expanded to keep up with the changing world and the changing needs of our community. Today, The Village provides a full range of services, including counseling programs, adoption, financial counseling, unplanned pregnancy counseling, child care, and mentoring programs like the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program.
Since 1984, Bobcat Company has been the corporate sponsor for the North Dakota State Open at the Fargo Country Club, and has contributed to many worthwhile programs of The Village Family Service Center. As North Dakota’s largest manufacturer, Bobcat is the world leader in the engineering, manufacturing, and marketing of compact equipment, with more than 3,000 employees worldwide. As an equipment manufacturer, Bobcat works behind the scenes in the golf industry. Many of its products, especially the all-wheel steer loader and the Toolcat™ utility work machine and the new Bobcat compact tractors, are used by golf superintendents to help maintain some of the world’s most prestigious courses. Bobcat Company, headquartered in West Fargo, N.D., is part of Doosan Infracore International (DII), a U.S.-based subsidiary of Doosan Infracore, a global manufacturer of construction equipment.
