designed by Lindsay Ervin in 1990 and is one of the most entertaining layouts
in Central Pennsylvania. Accuracy is key

- The par-28, 1,283-yard Executive Course is popular
among beginner golfers and those looking for a quick nine-hole round. Ideal for learning and improving skills, no
tee times are necessary to play a fun mix of short- and medium-length par-3s
and a drivable par 4.

putting green, as well as private and group lessons.
A fully-stocked pro shop has a wide selection
of brand-name equipment and apparel while Mulligan’s Restaurant & Lounge serves
pre- and post-round dining in a relaxed environment overlooking the course.
