The course at Battle Creek Country Club is a 1919 Willie Park Junior layout that Bruce Hepner from Renaissance Golf Design has looked after in recent years, maintaining a delicate aboreal balance to preserve the course’s architectural integrity.
A parkland course with a lot of variety. Trees force a few fades off tees while a lot of holes just prefer a draw or fade shape. A good variety of large greens, especially front to back, with a number of greens 4-5 clubs deep requiring a lot of long uphill and downhill lag putts if your distance control is off on your iron shots. Plays less narrow than it feels on some of the tighter holes, as most misses still provide a path to punch it up near the green and try to save your par.
