This is really a good time, but it is not an easy feat to make reservations for the buffet. Four of us tried calling the phone number listed and a live person does not answer and a prompt asks for the last name of the party you are calling, who happens to be "Amanda" and whose last name we don't have and never once did a prompt ask for Amanda's extension, which is listed in the ad.

We got through really easy! Amanda's last name is Ruzicka and she takes all the reservations for their events. She is really helpful!

I attend many of the events at the golf club and Amanda has always accommodated my reservations. She is so willing to work with you through the details and promptly returns all my phone calls An excellent employee to represent the BGC.

Where is a good spot to camp out and still see the fireworks if you don't want to actually go onsite to the golf course? Can you see them from the high school parking lot, or the field by the aquatic center?

The view from the field by the aquatic center is fantastic!!!
