MarHaven Greens Golf Course opened for play in 2006. The course was designed by Marlyn Marquardt.
MarHaven Greens Golf Course is a private facility that is also open to military veterans, active-duty members and their families. The course was founded and designed by Marlyn Marquardt, who wanted to build his own special tribute to the men and women who have served the United States in uniform.
The course includes a regulation nine and a special nine that accommodates players with physical disabilities. A practice range, a putting green, and an Iwo Jima memorial are planned for the future here.
The golf course intends to represent the different wars of America. From the first World War to Desert Storm.
There will be a 12 to 14 ft. fence around the entire course that portrays a fence for the POWs
#1 represents WW I with a sand trap shaped like Italy.
#2 is dedicated to the depression era.
#3-#5 represent WW II from scenes of Europe to the South Pacific to the Baton March - with islands representing where they fought.
#7 reminds us of the "Forgotten War" by representing the Korean War
After #7 there is a 450-foot-long wooded trail representing Vietnam "...intended to represent the ruts of Nam," according to MarHaven's founder.
#9 is meant to represent the Golf War, portraying the desert conditions with no water. The facility includes a golf course for handicapped individuals as well as our regular nine.
Expansion plans for the course are underway and will include representation for the Iraqi Freedom War.
The Water holes are designed like miniature islands and have American flags waving in the center of each.
Areas are available near each hole to sit and visit or rest.
