Well it was a beautiful day for a round of nine holes of golf in Petersburg, North Dakota as twenty-two teams hit the ice for one of their favorite winter sports.

It was a great day to swing away at the Town Pumps' Sixth Annnual Frozen Balls Golf Tournament. People from all over the area have been anticipating Petersburg's version of the PGA.

Casey Hillebrand/Petersburg, ND: "I have been waiting for this for a few months now, and I went to savers got a getup going, get into it."

The course was built on a frozen over slew. Each hole had its own tee box, cup and hazards.

Will Semke/Larimore, ND: "The fairways are really rough, and we're dealing with harsh conditions. We're dealing with rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks. We don't know what's next."

All you need to play today is a club of choice, a tennis ball, and the will to make par... Whatever that is...

Will Semke/Larimore, ND: "We're right at par so far, we don't know what that is but we're there."

Teams are sinking their putts for prizes and to have their name placed on the Frozen Ball trophy. The town came up with this new winter sport to be a little more original.

Aaron Mork/Tournament Organizer: "It's different, dare to be different I guess. We do a lot of curling, and we came up with the idea to do something else to do in the winter that's original."
