A North Dakota man has pleaded not guilty to an aggravated assault charge stemming from a golf course argument.

Fifty-seven-year-old Donald Sauvageau is accused of hitting another man in the head with a golf club at Fargo's Rose Creek Golf Course over the weekend.

Sauvageau allegedly told police he was upset that the other man had hit balls into his group and tried to hit the man on the shoulder with his sand wedge, but missed and struck the man on the side of the head.

Authorities say the 55-year-old victim needed stitches.
