About Us

Bartow Golf Course is an old school traditional golf course which originally opened as a 9 hole course in 1919. In December of 1926 the course was opened as a Links Style 18 hole course designed by Donald Ross. The Par 72 course features four sets of tees ranging from 5200 yards to 6600 yards with no homes, just you and Mother Nature.

The Bartow Golf Course is better known to most as “The Tow”. “The Tow” has hosted the Youth Villa Classic for over 50 years, raising money for the Sherriff Youth Ranch in Bartow along with many other Tournament events. The beauty of the Oaks and peaceful wildlife mixed with the challenging greens and winding dog legs scattered with water hazards throughout makes “The Tow” a diamond in the rough!!
