The Ackerman Hills Course at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex is a par 72, 6436 yard layout designed along tree-lined fairways and rolling hills. The topography presents a nice contrast to its sister course the Kampen - which is also on property.
The complex features a full practice facility with putting greens, short game area with sand bunker and a targeted grass range. The Tom Spurgeon Training center is also on property. The clubhouse includes a pro shop, snack area with outdoor patio plus banquet/outing facilities. For a pictorial review of this course, click on the link near the top of this page.
