Battle Lake Golf Course has a history stretching back to the days when golfers putted out their balls on “sand greens”. Originally, Battle Lake was a nine-hole course; then in the 1970s, it was remodeled and another nine holes were added.
When current owner, Chuck Higgins took over in 1990, he made some renovations as well. Under his ownership, services and facilities have greatly improved, including the building of a tournament pavilion and one of the best practice facilities in the area. “The course layout was always inviting,” Higgins says, “but it had some rough edges.” Among the improvements were the additions of cart paths around the greens and tee boxes.
