With large greens and numerous water hazards, this course is fun for both thr beginners and experienced players alike.

Dear Ms. Haugan: I would like to thank you and the Battleground team for helping me host another successful charity golf tournament. This has been our 8th year hosting with Battleground and the Battleground staff has been amazing every time. I have to say this year's tournament by far was one of the best that we have had. Our players even took an hour longer than usual on the course because they were having too much fun. Nothing but praise from our vendors and players. All the details were covered. Not sure how your team gets it done with my ≈140 players and 10+ vendors to deal with. Your team has always been so gracious in assisting me with set up and all my needs leading up to the shotgun start. I am truly thankful. Battleground has made our tournament a breeze to host. Our players not only get to enjoy the amazing greens but lunch was also a hit! Our players are fed out on the course but look forward to the tasty lunch provided by the Battleground kitchen. The menu options are awesome. Our players enjoy a nice plated lunch along with the mouthwatering dessert! There is nothing Battleground doesn't cover. From start to finish, the Battleground team has been accommodating to all of our needs. It is with your relentless attention to detail that we are able to host such an amazing tournament where we are able to give back to the community. Truly could not have been a success without the Battleground team! See you next year for our 9th!

The feedback we have received thus far has been extremely positive. We heard comments like "This is the best organized tournament we've had in a long time". The food menu was a real winner and the servers deserve kudos for such professionalism.
