Bowling Green is the Alternative to Private Club Membership and Public Municipal Golf

Family-owned since opening in 1967, Bowling Green Golf Club boasts a classic woodlands course design, private club conditioning and several season pass options. Bowling Green is challenging but fun – easygoing but rewarding – well groomed but natural – classic but never boring.

A Golf Course Evolving with the Game of Golf

Over the course of Bowling Green’s 50 year history, a lot about the game has changed. Modern club design allows players to hit the ball further; Bowling Green adds course yardage. The popularity of the PGA tour on TV pressures Greens Superintendents to provide tour playing conditions; Bowling Green grows its knowledge of turf maintenance best practices. Golf’s heyday creates overcrowding and 6 hour rounds at public golf courses; Bowling Green becomes the “home of the four hour round” with its establishment of a “par” for time needed to play a round. Elements of the original design erode over time; Bowling Green’s top priority is the maintenance, restoration and improvement of the course. Growing the game of golf becomes a priority in the millennium; Bowling Green embraces the Play it Forward initiative, providing options from the tee to play a shorter course.

The result – a classic course suited for golfers of all abilities.
