History of Bemidji Town & Country Club On the north shore of beautiful Lake Bemidji, sits the Bemidji Town & Country Club. The history of the BTCC originally founded in 1916, with major revisions in 1990 and updates in 2014, is home to over 400 members and is open to the public. It is the site of the prestigious Birchmont Golf Tournament held annually in July as well as the Vandersluis Memorial Golf Tournament held each year over Labor Day weekend. With majestic Norway pines surrounding the smooth and natural greens, filled with wildlife, our 18-hole championship course holds breathtaking scenery that can never be forgotten. We welcome you to come create fond memories with family, friends, and co-workers alike, here, at the Bemidji Town & Country Club.
