    Bowling Green is the Antidote to What Daily-Fee Golf in the Area Has Become


    Family-owned since opening in 1967, Bowling Green Golf Club boasts elegant, tree-lined fairways plus a complete commitment to making sure that members, guests, and visitors enjoy a great round. At Bowling Green, golf is exactly what it's supposed to be—fun, relaxing, rejuvenating, and natural.

    A Golf Course That Always Wants to Improve.

    Several years ago, the owners decided to make several enhancements in order to make golf at Bowling Green even more enjoyable (and faster) than at any other public-access facility in the area.

    • They carefully removed selected trees to widen fairways.
    • They eliminated “1st and 10th” starting times.
    • They committed to a four-hour round at all times.
    • They made the course more playable without making it too easy for the good golfer.
    • They renovated facilities like the grill room and clubhouse.
    • And they improved the already excellent conditioning…

    …All to provide golfers with a fun, well-paced round in a beautiful setting.

    Trees Line the Fairways—Not Homes, OB Stakes and Major Roads.

    Today, Bowling Green Golf Club is an oasis for the golfer who values the time-honored traditions of the game. If you're a serious golfer (of any standard) and you are fed up with five and six hour rounds, obnoxious golfers with hats on backwards, high greens fees, pock-marked greens, and a ‘herd-them-through' mentality, then you will love Bowling Green and will likely be applying for membership or calling for a tee time before you know it.

    Bowling Green's Traditional Design Means Beauty, Playability, Peace, and Fast Play—In Short, Everything a Golf Course Should Offer


    A traditional golf course design respects the land because ‘the land came first.' It follows the natural contours without cutting off mountains, creating outrageous forced carries, or building false islands. Many of today's newer designs would look the same regardless of where they were built as they have little respect for the raw land.

    Look in the Dictionary Under “Traditional Golf Course” and You'll See a Photo of Bowling Green.

    Early golf course architects (and a few of the newer generation) built golf courses to provide a respite from city landscapes. Most golf courses were part of a ‘country' club. Bowling Green provides a beautiful environment well away from the city. As you play the course, views of the mountains spring up around every corner.

    Also, the layout also takes advantage of the tall red pine trees and majestic oaks that flank the course. The back nine incorporates natural ponds and wetlands to provide additional variety and strategic interest.

    As You Stand Over That Four-Footer To Seal the Game—All You Hear are The Birds Chirping and the Quiet Wind Through the Trees.

    The traditional golf course provides the golfer with the sounds of nature, not the sounds of a highway or interstate or airport. At Bowling Green, you are truly in the heart of the country. Just the chance to de-compress is worth the price of admission at Bowling Green. That's why many golfers arrive early at Bowling Green and spend the entire day.

    A Traditional Golf Course Provides the Opportunity Walk

    A traditional design welcomes (with outstretched arms) the player who wants to walk. The distance between greens and tees is minimal and there are no ‘forced carries' around weird hazards. You can ride anytime at Bowling Green but you can walk anytime as well—in the finest traditions of the great game of golf.

    Gently Undulating Terrain Makes For Great Golf

    The original great links courses in the British Isles had gently undulating terrain—the heart and soul of great golf land. Bowling Green's site provides the perfect pitch and roll so that every hole is different and the course presents a constantly changing portfolio of interesting challenges. The land and the traditional design demands a combination of accuracy, power, and thought. A Traditional Design Means Faster Play

    With greens and tees close together, it's simply quicker to get from hole to hole. Plus the absence of artificial features means that if you stray a little from the fairway, you're probably going to find your ball quickly and then be able to play that epic recovery shot. One of the great traditions of golf is playing quickly and not having to wait forever for the group ahead.

    Discover the Joy of Hitting a Draw or Fade

    A traditional golf course like Bowling Green includes numerous doglegs and green complexes that invite most any player to experience the pure joy of pulling off a controlled shot.
