he intention of the court and the staff at Battlefield Golf Club is to offer a well conditioned, friendly, service oriented facility that the people of Madison County and neighboring counties can utilize for their recreational enjoyment. We also hope to educate the customer on the historical value of the area and seek to create a preservation of the Battle of Richmond. The Palmer House, which served as the hospital for Union and Confederate soldiers alike, is just one the historical artifacts that rests on the property. It now serves as the clubhouse for the golf club. The church at Mount Zion, Rogers-Tribble House and the Herndon House are other examples of the historic monuments near the property. The opportunity for Madison County to showcase such a grand history for recreational enjoyment and historical education are indeed unique. Such an opportunity does not exist with most recreational operations.
The Madison County Fiscal Court and the Staff of Battlefield Golf Club will be constructing a plan for long-range facility improvements and service opportunities. Currently, Battlefield Golf Club is conducting a membership opportunity in an effort to grow the foundation for the golf club. With the help of the court, the historical society, private business owners, the existing members and the general public, Battlefield Golf Club will continue to grow and provide a much needed service opportunity for family and friends. Attached is the outline for membership opportunities, a daily fee schedule and contact information. Also, a list of reading materials will be supplied for those individuals who would like to learn more about the Battle of Richmond.
