Eric Stromstad, superintendent at Hawktree golf course north of Bismarck, says two goats were brought in at the start of the season to rid the 16th hole of leafy spurge and clover. It's worked out so well that three more goats were added.
Stromstad says the golfers have taken to the goats and feed and pet them.
Hawktree isn't the first course to employ goats. Stromstad says courses in Ireland, Ohio and Florida have been using them.
