DULUTH, MN. -- Sunday was a day to celebrate the father figures in your life. Amid these unusual times of a global COVID-19 pandemic, families across the Northland were still able to get out and celebrate dad.
"It's really special. I really scored a hole in one with my daughters here and it's just so special to share this special day with them," said John Doberstein, a father out golfing with his family.
Doberstein spent Father's Day teaching his daughters the fundamentals of the golf game at Enger Park Golf Course.
"It's fun because when my dad is teaching me how to do it and spend this time with my dad and doing what he would like to do on his day," said Autumn Doberstein, John's daughter.
The golf course wasn't the only place filled with families Sunday, as some chose to enjoy a Father's Day boat ride.
Charles Stauduhar owner of Spirit Lake Marina, says they saw a good amount of families getting out on the water.
"We just love to see the families come down and father's and the families are so important to be able to come down and experience this all together. Father's day is the perfect time to do it," said Stauduhar.
And it's extra special for Stauduhar as his son is also an employee at the marina so they can still spend the day together while working.
"If I'm going to be working I think it's just great to have my son down here working with me. It's a bonus," added Stauduhar.
Enger Park Golf Course provided father's with a free round of golf after someone in their group bought a round of golf.
