OWATONNA, July 18, 2023 – The City of Owatonna Parks, Recreation & Facilities Department is announcing a transition in the restaurant lease for food and beverages at Brooktree Golf Course. As of July 18, Tavern Nine will no longer be providing food and beverages at the municipally-owned golf course. Other food and beverage options are being explored. Until a new vendor is operational, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will continue to be available on-site.
“Based on feedback from patrons, we realize the importance of food and beverage services at Brooktree and want to thank Tavern Nine for their partnership,” said Jenna Tuma, Parks and Recreation Department Director. “The Brooktree patio has become a neighborhood hub for diners and golfers and we ask for patrons’ patience as we navigate this transition.”
Having a full dining operation on site is part of a multi-year refresh at the course that began last year. The interior of the Clubhouse has been updated with a new bar and renovated dining area. The changes were implemented following a series of listening sessions and an online survey to provide feedback about how the course could be improved for its members as well as the community as a whole. Tuma continued, “Our commitment to providing a quality experience for golfers and diners remains our primary goal.”
Another round of clubhouse updates is planned for this winter. Brooktree golf course and clubhouse is nestled along the banks of Maple Creek near the entrance of picturesque Mineral Springs Park. From the greens, golfers can hear the calming sound of water flowing over smooth rocks in the creek bed, breathe in the fresh air of the lush surroundings and bask in the beautiful scenic landscape.
