Galesburg, IL (June 25, 2021) The City of Galesburg's golf course, Bunker Links, was recently recognized by Golf Magazine in an article highlighting municipal golf courses. The course was one of the six golf courses in the Midwest region called out for praise by the publication. All of the courses featured in the article were selected by a Golf Magazine reader poll.
Bunker Links is an 18-hole (par 71) regulation golf course located in Lincoln Park. The course is owned and managed by the City of Galesburg, as one of the recreational opportunities offered by the Department of Parks and Recreation. Bunker Links is a beautiful course with a fun layout, operating March 1 - December 15, weather permitting. The facility also includes a driving range and large putting green.
"We are absolutely thrilled to have Bunker Links highlighted in Golf Magazine," said Tony Oligney-Estill, Director of Parks and Recreation. "The fact that selection was based on a reader poll, makes it even more meaningful because the praise came from local golfers who utilize the course."
The City recently renovated the outdoor patio at Bunker Links to provide more space, shade, and seating for those utilizing the facility. There is also a new eagle eye camera above the 18th green, so golfers can see their finishing shot following their round of golf.
