The Golf Course site consists of approximately 170 acres and surrounds the 30-acre Bowen Lake. Part of Bowen Lake is comprised of wetlands, which add dramatic character to the golf course. The remainder of the site consists of rolling meadows, forest and the subtle contouring of greens and dramatic shapes of bunkers with white sand. The clubhouse is sited at the top of a hill overlooking the practice green and # 10.

Nice course to play, challenging I have played this couse several times. Challenging yet playable. If you are on your game you can score good. Mishit shots will cost you. Nice layout and well taken care of. Pace of play always seems to be good here and we are normally fast players. September 12, 2013
The Course is a GREAT VALUE I booked my round on GOLFNOW and played for $9.99. I could not believe it when two of the nearest courses were going to cost $25 - $35 to play on equal courses. The course was not busy and I even practiced in the practice area by myself for almost 1 1/2 hours before my round. The course was is very good condition, and because I have played it before made it easier to play well. I would recommend this course to anyone to play from about 4-20 handicap. September 6, 2013
nice course Very nice course. Great views and great lay out. Look forward to playing it again. August 21, 2013
A true gem here! Hadn't played the Links at Bowen Lake in probably 10 years. Was very pleased and surprised to find an incredibly well kept up golf course. Lacks the big clubhouse, has a smallish driving range, and has mostly unpaved cart paths, but the teeboxes, greens, fairways, bunkers, etc. are very well maintained. Very challenging course from the tips, tight driving holes, well placed bunkers, etc. There are some holes out here that can compete with anybody for aesthetics and challenge. #10 comes immediately to mind. Just a beautiful hole. And the par threes are pretty much all awesome. We will be back soon! July 13, 2013
This course is challenging and keeps you on your toes! This course is not for the beginner, some holes can be tight and long. Course was in great shape and reasonably priced through May 6, 2013
Great condition and very beautiful setting. We arrived and were greeted warmly. We were the first twosome off in the morning and played in under 3 hours. The course was in great condition. Leaves on the course are usually a concern in the fall, but they have done a great job of vacuming and blowing the leaves into the tree lines. October 18, 2012
