Fall colors at The Ponds at Battle Creek golf course

The County Manager’s 2020-2021 budget realigned the golf course portfolio, which includes closing The Ponds at Battle Creek. On March 2, 2021, the board voted to set September 12, 2021 as the final day the course will be open. This date ensures a final season of access for the community while public engagement takes place to determine the future of the site.
