Swede Hill Golf Course features native shrubs and wild flowers, still in bloom during mid-May. Plans are to expand the course from 1 "brown" with three pin positions to 3 "browns" with a total of 9 pin positions. According to owner, Dave Erickson, Swede Hill serves two purposes: golf entertainment and to form a fire break to prevent potential brush fire danger.
