Just north of Lafayette, nestled amongst the rolling hills and cornfields of Battle Ground, one discovers the Battle Ground Golf Club, a course well worth the short drive from Lafayette. It is always in excellent condition, and playing it is one of the state's best golf values. BGCC was once owned by the Lafayette Country Club and is now open to the public. It has maintained that Country Club feel of understated beauty and class.
Parking is plentiful and the practice range is close by and handy. After your round of golf, you'll find a bar and grill, and inside/outside seating upon which to watch others finish their round (with birdies and pars).
Do you like wide fairways and forgiving greens? If so, Battle Ground Golf Course is the place for you. Please don't misunderstand. BGGC is a traditional course with all the challenges and opportunities you'll find elsewhere. But what makes this layout special, and makes you want to come back, again and again, is that you feel you have a chance to do well, and will keep coming back to prove it!
Golfers are greeted by mature trees, wide fairways, and forgiving blue grass rough. Oh, did I mention water? BGGC has some strategically located, and if one is not careful, you'll find it off the tee box on three separate holes. Be careful out there!
There are multiple tee boxes from which to choose, and the yardage is more than fair for each skill level. Designers Bob Simmons and Tim Liddy, using bent grass throughout, did an excellent job in crafting a fair, yet challenging golf course. You'll enjoy the experience and want to return on a regular basis!
Hit 'em long and keep your head down.
